About Healthwaysmassage

"just a peaceful body and mind, but a peaceful life."


The Ambition for Perfection

My name is Jeffrey Myers, owner and manager of Healthwaysmassage. My goal is to encourage, assist, educate and bring awareness to the influential power and overall healing effects of therapeutic massage and yoga.

As a four time marathon runner and passionate bicyclist, I know first-hand many of the chronic pain and injuries associated with athletic training. And even most important, how to reduce and prevent them. At Healthwaysmassage I work with my trainees to develop a realistic tailored program for better health, including specific stretches and breathing exercises to complement an effective workout session.
