As an athlete from the age of four, Sterling developed a strong appreciation for a healthy and injury free body from a very young age. Studying kinesiology and biomechanics as an undergrad he became licensed as a personal trainer emphasizing in rehabilitation. Still there seemed to be a void in his education at which time he decided to return to school for massage therapy. Manual therapy was the perfect addition to his practice as it has allowed him to gain greater knowledge of the human body and how the power of touch improves its function. Sterling continued his education earning a master’s in exercise physiology and feels it is important to continue learning every chance you can get. Sterling has taught both anatomy and massage at the college.
