He began his career as a flight attendant and worked in this industry for 15 years, taking military personnel around the world. In 2005 Tony went back to school to get a degree in culinary arts and a Bachelor’s degree in food science.
While working as a Chef de Cuisine in downtown Chicago, Tony suffered from musculoskeletal pain for almost two years. After extensive testing, it was found out he was suffering from anemia and a herniated disk in his back. He received treatment from Northwestern hospital and finally recovered from the pain. He decided after that point that he wanted to dedicate himself to helping people in similar situations.
Tony plans to master other massage modalities, such as lymphatic and Thai massage as well as more joint mobility forms of massage to help people with pain and discomfort. Currently, he volunteers at a hospice and palliative care center giving patients much needed relief from pain. In his spare time, Tony enjoys cooking, Scuba diving, and getting to travel to countries he has not seen yet.
