Starting off as a Nursing assistant in college, I soon developed an interest in becoming a Medic/Firefighter. I spent 9 years with Boulder Rural Fire Dept in Boulder, CO and 6 years with Dallas County Paramedics, just outside of Des Moines, IA. I often use these experiences in treating clients. Since becoming a massage therapist and working in a PT clinic for years, I have become some what of a 'soft tissue' specialist.
I have been a Massage Therapist since 2006, graduating from a small school in Iowa. I started working in a popular clinic near downtown Des Moines, IA with a few other therapists. Moving into Sports Massage in 2010, my wife and I moved back to Colorado, a "sports mecca," where I started working with Elite and Pro athletes of all kinds.
I love to travel and when some of my professional athletes started requesting that I go to Kona, HI. for the Ironman World Championship I soon found myself on a plane. I have now been going there every year, since 2011 working on some of the best athletes in the world. In 2018, I spent a month in HI working with the 4 time Ironman World Champion, Daniela Ryf. I also attend the AMTA National Massage Conference yearly to keep my skills up, learn new techniques and spend time with colleagues and mentors.

IASTM, also known as Graston Technique or Gua Sha, is a non-invasive method used to break down fascial restrictions and scar tissue. By using HawkGrips, a high quality surgical steel instrument, I can cause controlled micro-trauma to affected areas, stimulating a local inflammatory response which results in a softening of damaged tissue.
Cupping is another form of alternative treatment and has many benefits. It is used for pain management, inflammation, blood flow, relaxation, and general well-being by pulling or "sucking" the tissue away from the fascia. This technique dates back to 1550 BC and is gaining popularity in the sports world, thanks to high profile athletes such as Michael Phelps.
This is an injury prevention/rehabilitative technique used to provide support and stability to sore or injured muscles and joints to facilitate healing. I use different brands in my practice as It depends on where the injury or support is needed. I have found it to be successful in pain management, reducing swelling and promoting blood flow to the muscle, which accelerates healing.
Just like it sounds, active and passive "ROM" movements designed to loosen up tight joints, tendons, ligaments and muscles.
Whether you stumbled on the trail or went over the handlebars, the first 24 hours of any injury and how it is treated is very important. The ER may be the first stop. Then, Ice v Heat, Rest v Movement, PT, Recovery, Rehab. I feel that because of my EMT training I can help you in making the best choice for your continuing recovery.
"My trusted secret weapon in Kona! The best therapist I have ever worked with! Thanks Byron."
"Keeping this old broken down body takes a lot of work and Byron gets it done. Thanks mate."
"Thanks Byron for keeping my little body running. It's been great having you here at training camp."
"I can always count on Byron to get rid of those last minute niggles. Also thanks for being a great friend!"
"Best work ever! Incredible knowledge of the body. Thank you so much for squeezing me in."
"One of the few therapists with the strength to make me say when. Thanks for the help over the years."
I normally check texts between clients and check voicemail and email at the end of the day.
