Proper sanitation and hygiene have always been a priority in my practice. I am now taking additional measures to be able to provide therapeutic massage for you in a safe environment.
In between treatments, I sanitize surfaces in the treatment room and waiting room. I have a HEPA air filter running in the treatment room and can open a window when the weather permits. In between treatments I use a UV-C lamp to disinfect the treatment room.
When you arrive for treatment I will ask questions about any symptoms and use an infrared touchless thermometer as a screening tool to assess your temperature.
I am doing everything I can for your safety and mine. Please help me and my other clients by not coming in for a treatment if any of the following apply:
- You have had a fever in the last 24 hours of 100 degrees F or above.
- If you have or recently had respiratory or flu symptoms (including fever, chills, sore throat, cough, muscle aches, or shortness of breath)
- If you have been in contact with anyone in the last 14 days who has been diagnosed with COVID-19 or has coronavirus-type symptoms.
There is no charge for the cancellation of your appointment if it is for one of those reasons.
Please wear a mask when you come in for a treatment, and practice social distancing when in the waiting room.
About my Practice
I bring to the table over 45 years of experience doing massage, and 42 years of teaching massage. I graduated from a 1000-hour massage therapy course at Lindsey Hopkins in Miami in 1976 and from Bastyr University in Seattle as a Naturopathic Doctor in 1984.
I owned and directed a state-approved massage school, Healing Arts Institute, from 1990 to 2011. I ran the school so that I could have a venue to teach, and so I could bring in great teachers that I wanted to learn from. I have produced videos (now DVDs) on Deep Tissue Massage, Sports Massage, Swedish Massage, Side Lying Massage, and Massage Cupping that are sold and used in massage schools worldwide. I also have the DVDs online in the Massage Technique Library at www.massagelibrary.com
Since selling my school I have had more time to travel and teach advanced massage workshops in schools around the US, Canada, and Australia. My workshop schedule is at https://massagelibrary.com/events/
In my practice, I use a variety of techniques from Deep Tissue, Sports Massage, and Orthopedic Massage to help clients with chronic pain. Orthopedic Massage works with the muscles and connective tissue to bring balance in the body, relieving stresses on joints that can cause dysfunction and chronic pain. The goal is to help give you a greater pain-free range of motion.
I also offer a teaching practice in which massage therapists bring in their clients and we work on them together.
Please note that although I am trained as a Naturopathic Doctor, I practice as a massage therapist. If you need help with a medical condition I can refer you to a licensed Naturopathic Doctor in the area.

About 1 and 1/2 years ago, I performed a set of heavy one-armed kettlebell presses without warming up properly. A dumb thing to do, I must admit. I tore my right rotator cuff in two areas–the supraspinatus and infraspinatus. Both were grade-two tears and took a long time to heal. Unfortunately, once they did heal, I still could not enjoy my normal workouts because of pain and weakness. Fortunately, Dr. Mally was able to work on me and helped me obtain a full recovery.
Any movement involving force or weight-bearing hurt. Evidently, I had a lot of scar tissue at the sites of healing. Dr. Mally did several sessions, using his multi-directional eccentric contraction therapy. He explained to me that this broke down scar tissue that had formed improperly and allowed the creation of more functional tissue, and he was correct. I could feel myself getting stronger and moving in less pain after each session. After about 7 sessions, I was able to perform exercises that were not possible for me to do before therapy because of the pain involved.
I highly recommend Dr. Mally’s work–he has a deep knowledge of orthopedic therapy and a dedication to healing. I had met over the years many people he had helped, which is why I sought him out for my own therapy.
Steve Phillips, M.A., L.Ac. (licensed acupuncturist)
I have been suffering with a diagnosed heel spur for 6 months. It has been difficult walking, which I try to do 2-5 miles a day. After about 1 mile, my heel would begin to burn, even after using different heel cushions and shoe inserts. Daily stretches and ankle exercises reduced the discomfort somewhat I had seen massage therapists, a chiropractor, a podiatrist and also had acupuncture for the pain. After one treatment from Dr. Mally I was able to walk 3 miles that afternoon with no pain. The pain has lessened overall and I am thrilled to be able to walk each day without the concern of pain.
