Matthew became interested in bodywork over a decade ago as he learned that posture affects our mood, tension, energy, confidence, breathing, etc. As he began working on his own posture he realized that bodywork could be used as a tool to help interrupt the chronic holding patterns he was trying to free himself from.
In 2009 he graduated from UCMT in SLC and began a private practice; he founded Lifestone Bodywork a few months later. The new Lifestone location in Holladay is a culmination of 10 years of preparation.
“I love being a bodyworker. I love being able to help people relax on a profound level and to help them develop greater awareness and care for their body. It’s amazing to watch people improve their health and wellbeing and to know that I have helped them to be happier and to feel better.
“Receiving regular massage therapy will improve your daily life in many ways. It did it for me, and I have seen if work for so many people. I encourage you to give it a try!”
