Cody King understands muscles. Aside from graduating as the valedictorian of his class at MTC, the licensed massage therapist spent 10 years working as a certified fitness instructor, allowing him to bring a unique understanding of the body's need for recovery, relaxation, and frequent fist bumps to the massage table. Drawing on his expertise in musculoskeletal anatomy and physiology, he integrates multiple massage techniques––including Swedish, hot stone, and neuromuscular therapy––to customize treatments that address specific pain- or stress-related complaints. He also works in tandem with a licensed physician at Capitol Spine and Rehabilitation, where physical therapy and chiropractic medicine meet spa-like services, to help clients find relief from injury and get back on the leapfrog circuit as quickly as possible.
