Matthew Kibitlewski, Massage Therapist, Personal Trainer
The body is my hobby. Ever since I was 18, when I bought P90X, I have been enthralled by its capacity. I am a certified trainer through NASM and a licensed massage therapist. I consider myself a "movement specialist". Much like a physical therapist, I utilize manual therapy and simple postural training to ignite your body's natural rhythm. If you are seeking alternative options for surgery, pain prescriptions and rehab routines; or desire to reduce chronic pain, migraines and muscle spasms/strains, what I offer through Purity Day Spa could be a missing piece in your regimen. The body work we engage in will teach you how to surrender your stress to the breath. While the strengthening exercises we do will guide you into the power of your body's full potential. I believe that efficient static and dynamic posture builds the necessary and integral foundation which grants you access to optimal performance during marathons, gym days, yoga sessions, triathlons, cross-fit competitions, or just to take on the day and its routine without any fear of pain. From moms to gym monsters, what I want to teach you isn't found in a book, its how to move as YOU. If breathing is the essence of being, then movement is how we infuse our will unto this mosaic of life. Let's get you back into the power of your natural rhythm again.
