A native of the Bahamas, Derek has lived in Edmond, OK since 2013. He has more then 10 years experience, and recently went back to school (Florida College Of Natural Health) in 2010 to be re-certified as a Therapeutic Massage Therapist in several modalities such as Shiatsu, Reflexology, Structural Bodywork, Trigger Point, Cranial Sacral Therapy, Acupressure, Russian Sports Massage, Massage Core 1-5 (Swedish) and Massage Variations. Derek’s focus is therapeutic preventative treatments which includes a combination of massage modalities to fit his clients needs. His favorite is the Swedish, Shiatsu, and Russian Sports Massage combination which I believe is the best of both worlds, firm but yet calming and relaxing.
He loves life and the only way to interact with life is to live it (by touching it physically and mentally with love) we touch and is touch by everything we experience (to touch and be touch is the way of life).
