Chris is a native of Texas and is a member of the United States military. He joined the Air Force upon high school graduation and served for a period of six years. He left active duty to provide emotional support to his wife in her medical school journey. Once her medical school journey was coming to a close, Chris realized he missed the comradery and sense of purpose that the military provided and rejoined active duty.
Chris holds a Bachelor of Science in Criminal Justice from American Military University, an Associate of Applied Science Degree in Criminal Justice from the Community College of the Air Force, and an Associate of Applied Science Degree in Instruction of Technology and Science from the Community College of the Air Force. During his break from the military, Chris completed a massage therapy program at National University of Health Sciences, located in Chicago, Illinois and graduated with honors with an Associate of Applied Science Degree in Massage Therapy.
His passion for massage therapy stems from his dedication to helping and serving others to ensure their continued safety and wellness. He is specifically interested in providing massage services to those who are suffering from chronic and/or debilitating illnesses that would benefit from the use of the therapeutic touch involved in medical massage techniques.
In his spare time, Chris enjoys playing golf, participating in various community sporting events, spending time with his wife and pets, exploring different places, and pursuing new experiences.

Currently, 22 states, five Canadian provinces, the District of Columbia, and the US territories of Puerto Rico and the US Virgin Islands have laws regulating naturopathic doctors (NDs). In these states and provinces, naturopathic doctors are required to graduate from a four-year, in-residence naturopathic medical school and pass an extensive postdoctoral board examination (NPLEX) in order to receive a license or registration. Licensed naturopathic physicians must fulfill state- or province-mandated continuing education requirements annually, and have a specific scope of practice defined by the law in their state or province. States currently offering licensure and registration to naturopathic physicians include: Alaska, Arizona, California, Colorado, Connecticut, District of Columbia, Hawaii, Idaho, Kansas, Maine, Maryland, Massachusetts, Minnesota, Montana, New Hampshire, New Mexico, North Dakota, Oregon, Pennsylvania, Rhode Island, Utah, Vermont, Washington.
Scope of practice regulations vary among licensed/regulated states, as do the parameters and restrictions for practitioners located in as yet unlicensed venues. Legal provisions still allow naturopathic doctors to consult with patients, making recommendations and suggestions based on prior diagnosis, in several of the yet unlicensed states and provinces.
