Tom Maxson, NC LMBT #17313

I practice massage therapy and reflexology to help my clients achieve whatever goals they have for themselves and to cope with the stressful world we live in. Bodywork and Footwork can encourage balance, improve flexibility, improve sleep, optimize performance and calm the mind- if I can share a fraction of that potential with people who need those results, I consider it a job well done. I’m honored to be included in the Hands on Health team, because of the high standard of professionalism and integrity that is practiced here. In my 15 years as a licensed professional, I’m extremely grateful to have had opportunities to work with people of all shapes, sizes, and backgrounds and always aim to create an atmosphere of respect, comfort and compassion, for whomever is in need of relief on my table. >> Learn more about Tom Maxson.

Additionally, scratches, belly rubs, and treats are always welcome!

Email us and tell us your story. For those small business owners interested in bringing an animal in to the workplace, we’re happy to offer some tips to help your visitors accept an animal as a positive presence.
