Matt DeMichele, LMT is a Licensed Massage Therapist (CT License #: 005135), and owner of Shadow & Trees Massage Therapy in West Hartford, CT.
has been in practice since 2007, and has studied with a number of highly reputable figures in the bodywork and massage therapy field.
practices a number of different styles of bodywork, Matt's own massage "style" can be described as "connected, deep, therapeutic and conscious."
has worked with a number of different populations including senior citizens, and adults and children with special needs, but has particular skill and interest in working with athletes at all levels of competition.
Himself a triathlete, Matt
has found that the needs of athletes in preparation for or recovering from competition are often quite specific and require a more highly skilled LMT able to not only work with a larger tool belt, but use a bit more creativity and critical thinking for some of the more challenging trials that the body can be put through.
In addition to his private practice, Matt is an instructor of massage therapy at the Connecticut Center for Massage Therapy since 2009, and served as the former Education Director for the American Massage Therapy Association's Connecticut Chapter from 2009-2010.
is also looking forward to preparing for his
first Olympic Distance Triathlon this Spring, 2013.
