Ron | Massage Therapist | Glow Med SpaRon: Massage Therapist 

Ron, a nationally certified and state licensed massage therapist, has always had an interest in body mechanics and physical health.

He later attended VCU where he received his Bachelor’s degree in Health, Physical Education and Exercise Science.

As a certified personal trainer and exercise physiologist, Ron saw a lot of musculoskeletal injuries that he believed were preventable with proper body maintenance. He decided to not only get nationally certified as a Strength and Conditioning Specialist, but also to go back to school and become a Massage Therapist. With this new knowledge under his belt he could work one-on-one with patients and help relieve the physical pain from past injuries and incorrect body mechanics, as well as help alleviate stress which can equally take its toll and greatly impact the health of the mind and the entire body.

Ron specializes in Deep Tissue, Trigger point, Hot Stone and Sports Massage and truly enjoys getting to know each client prior to their session so he can customize his massages to fit their needs.

In addition to traditional styles of massage methods, Ildikó also offers specialized healing techniques by way of trigger point therapy, myofascial, cranial sacral and her specialty: Ashiatsu, also known as “deep feet” therapy.

Another passion which she has dedicated her life to learning more about, so as to create this experience during her sessions is a process called “Awakening to Presence.” This is a integrated approach to release stressful beliefs, thoughts, emotional, and physical trauma from the body. Ildikó is in her fifth year of ATP’s extensive six year training program and has been able to bring this benefit to all her clients during their sessions with her.

Since choosing massage therapy as her future, she has traveled the nation, combining her clinically based techniques, intuition and technical skills to create an individual experience for each client she meets along the way. Though she tends to be a bit of a snow bird, traveling between states to stay where the weather is manageable, she has now decided to reside in lovely Virginia to be closer to her oldest daughter, a student at the University of Richmond. It is here, with her team at Glow, that Ildikó continually pursues commitment to not just her clients, but to her personal and professional growth as well. She looks forward to having the pleasure of working with you.
