Cedrick is a sports and progress oriented remedial massage therapist that has function and performance as his priority with his treatments.

He is an avid fan of martial arts, movement efficiency and force generation in sports which led him to pursue a study in manual therapy with remedial massage as a base.

Cedrick's approach in his remedial massage and manual therapy is strongly on the same page of performance which he believes that each stroke, technique has a purpose. He believes that program and approach can mean a 1 time treatment vs a 1 year treatment of the same problem.
