"Dr. Jake has been instrumental in my ongoing recovery. In 1984 I had melanoma skin cancer that required surgery. Unfortunately, the surgeon unnecessarily removed muscle that has resulted in a severe gait problem. Without Dr. Jake, I am not sure if I would be walking today. I cannot fully express my gratitude for Dr. Jake taking me under his wing after so many doctors had abandoned me."

Circulatory (Swedish) Massage
A therapeutic style of bodywork, this modality uses oil or lotion applied to the skin with varying degrees of depth to the body to help promote general relaxation, improve blood circulation and assist with the lymphatic system in cleansing the body of toxins.
Sports Massage/Trigger Point Therapy
