Meet The Therapists
Edmund Morris, LMT, NCTMB, ABMP Member, BA, PgD (he/him)
Edmund graduated from the National Massage Therapy Institute in Falls Church, VA in 2007. In 2010, he earned a BA in Psychology from the University of Maryland, Baltimore County. He then went on to study Health Psychology at the London Metropolitan University in London, and earned his postgraduate diploma there. Edmund combines his professional massage training with a martial artist’s appreciation for form and flexibility, a psychologist’s consideration for global function, the health psychologist’s more narrow focus on environmental and habitual influence, and a clinician’s reasoning to evaluate and treat each client’s unique needs. He takes into account the ways in which different parts of the body interact and pays keen attention to detail to understand body-environment stress points. He specializes in deep tissue, integrated with elements of myofascial, neuromuscular, trigger point and sports therapies with a focus on addressing use-related injuries, chronic pain conditions and postural problems. More than just pain relief, for him massage is about getting people moving again – whether their goal is to be better able to meet life’s obligations, or simply to enjoy being active.
