About Michael

Longmont Massage TherapyMichael Burris, certified massage therapist

Michael moved to Longmont, Colorado from North Carolina in 1991. After receiving and benefiting from Neuromuscular Massage Therapy to treat injuries from a car accident, he decided he had to go to school and learn how to do this work to help others. He enrolled at the Healing Arts Institute in Fort Collins and started his NMT training while earning his massage certification. In 1999 he earned his certification from St. John Neuromuscular Pain Institute. From there he discovered Craniosacral Therapy to be the perfect compliment to NMT and began his training with the Upledger Institute where he became a teaching assistant.
