biography

A native of the Republic of Trinidad and Tobago, he holds an Associate of Science Degree in Massage Therapy from Keiser University (West Palm Beach campus) where he graduated 2006 valedictorian, and a Bachelor of Science degree in Alternative Medicine from Everglades University. He is also a graduate of San Fernando Boys' Government School and there after St. Benedicts College both in the island of Trinidad. These two institutions helped to form the cornerstone of his commitment to learning and his dedication to purpose.

Licensed by the Florida State Board of Massage Therapy and a member of the National Board of Therapeutic Massage and Bodywork, Peter was the resident massage therapist at Cobblestone Chiropractic and Wellness for three years. There he continued to expand his knowledge in the treatment of a variety of conditions arising out of personal injury as well as physical and structural conditions resulting from years of poor living habits.

 

He creates a memorable massage and bodywork experience by never rushing his work. It is important to listen to what the client says, as well as to what the client's body reveals through examination.  Leaving it all on the table so to speak, is what keeps the clients coming back.

posture and muscle assessments

Quite often our aches and pains are the result of the bad postural habits, which our bodies have committed to memory over extended periods of time. To this end it is necessary to initially document a client’s strengths and weaknesses, to ensure that their complaints are fully addressed.

developing healthy habits for physical well being

Along with our “no strings philosophy” we don’t believe that you should be a slave to our services. This is not to say that we will ever turn away your business, but there should always be an aim to your treatment. As such, the focus in part should be to replace bad habits with healthy ones, and to the extent that we could assist in this process, it is our responsibility to do so.
