Since becoming a professional massage therapist in 2000, I’ve has consistently helped thousands of clients manage their back pain with a combination of deep tissue work, cupping, and stretching. In 2002, I began a career-long tradition of continuing study by being trained in Tuina—the art of Chinese massage—at the world famous Olympic Training Center in Beijing, China.
As an orthopedic massage therapist, I specialize in treating chronic pain and sports injuries and helping restore proper range of motion. In 2006, I became certified as a medical massage practitioner, giving me the knowledge and ability to work with physicians in a complementary healthcare partnership.
Becoming a certified cupping therapist in 2011, Morgan utilizes the powerful vacuum suction of silicone cups to instantly release rigid soft tissue; drain excess fluids and toxins; loosen adhesions and lift connective tissue; and bring blood flow to stagnant skin and muscles.
The silicone cups literally become an extension of my hands, allowing me to decompress and create negative pressure, which seamlessly lifts and releases muscle adhesions versus performing the classic compression of massage. It’s said that 5 minutes of cupping is equivalent to 30 minutes of a deep tissue massage.
In 2014, Morgan compiled his helpful blog posts about back pain exercises and published his first book, DIY Low Back Pain Relief. Several of the chapters can be found freely available as guest posts on the well-known health blog, Mind Body Green.
The 2017, Morgan sustained a lower back injury that he was able to overcome thanks to a series of highly targeted exercises. He then went on to publish his next book, Low Back Pain Survival Guide. Quickly following the release of this back pain book came a series of ebooks that he is excited to share on Smashwords.
When Morgan is not helping massage clients manage their back pain, I’m teaching online workshops on how to incorporate massage cupping into a bodywork practice.
