Dustin Root

Licensed Massage Therapist

From an early age I have been involved in a variety of sports, which has played a large role in my understanding and interest in the human body, particularly in movement, dysfunction, and recovery from injury. I graduated from Onondaga School of Massage Therapy in Rochester, NY where my curiosity was nurtured. I enjoy the challenges of clinical massage therapy and the continued education that comes with collaborating with other professionals to bring about the best patient outcomes. In my personal life I enjoy golf, baseball, and hanging with my dog, Georgia.
