In 2003, Gary Wrona was injured in a severe motorcycle accident. Even after a year and a half of conventional medical treatment, he was unable to function normally without chronic pain and had only a limited range of motion. It was only after his doctors told him they had done all they could that he began to seek alternative healing, which helped him regain normal movement and a pain-free existence. Now a certified massage therapist and master of neuro-linguistic programming, he runs his practice with a holistic approach—one that doesn't simply focus on physical elements but, instead, analyzes the interactions of mind, body, and spirit like three philosophers in a cage match. Beneath the exposed wooden beams of a second-floor loft, he customizes massages with Swedish, deep-tissue, shiatsu, and cupping techniques, hoping to unlock the healing potential that he himself experienced.
