Chris was born and raised in Wenatchee. Growing up as an avid baseball player, the pitching mound was his comfort zone. At 14 years old, Chris' baseball season left him with two strained hamstrings, one right after another. Working with Biosport, he got the idea that helping people get back into working order would be a fulfilling career path. Fast forward a few years, he graduated from Wenatchee High School in 2009 having completed three years of sports medicine. Moving away from the medical field for a few years, he got pulled back into medicine after receiving some massages. He then started down the road of massage therapy and bodywork. While attending massage therapy school in Portland, OR., he started receiving a different form of bodywork hoping it might be able to help his elbow. His left elbow hadn't been able to straighten for eight years, from a previous baseball injury. The new technique was Rolfing®, and after just one session he noticed a big change. He then knew he had to learn this unique technique. Working as a massage therapist at Ovenell Chiropractic from 2018 to 2022, he saved up to attend The Dr. Ida Rolf Institute (DIRI) in Boulder, CO. He started at the DIRI in June of 2021 and graduated in May of 2022. Chris is extremely excited to be the first to offer this transformative technique to his home valley of Wenatchee.
