"The swelling is gone and I feel lighter and have way more power!" Brandon S.
"I used to run out of migraine medication every month and now I only have to take half a tablet once every 3-4 weeks. I now have an excess of medication and I only use it when I can't figure it out on my own or can't find the time to see Ben. He has changed my life!" Shirley D.
"I've been very aware of my lymph system for 20 years because of my cancer but it still amazes me how draining that fluid impacts everything from your toes to your neck." Kay L.

"If a man can write a better book, preach a better sermon or make a better mouse trap than his neighbors, though he builds his house in the woods, the world will make a beaten path to his door."

The Johnston Technique
I have yet to find a term that best fits what I do. So in order to not confuse my techniques with others I've created my own. The Johnston Technique is very effective, creates long term relief, and restores power and body awareness to the client. It is definitely not your typical massage.
The closest technique would be a lymphatic based massage because I look at the body as a fluid system and if that system is not functioning properly then symptoms form. Working on the symptom only creates more. I work on the cause.
It's similar to kinks in a garden hose. Pressure creates pain and working on those pain areas only creates more pain. The cause is not the kink itself but the thing that is causing the kink to occur...clothing and joint structure! More specifically, the tight elastic bands that are pressing against the superficial skin on the weakest parts of the body: groin, hip, stomach, ribs, chest, and the structure and position of the shoulders.

In my videos I'll show you how your body reacts to restrictions and how it reacts when those restrictions are not there. This information if very beneficial and will benefit the body as a whole.
