Phil is a PRI-credentialed Strength & Conditioning Coach and Licensed Massage Therapist with certifications in strength training, joint health, and mobility. He has extensive experience integrating rehabilitation and training, having worked with youth, collegiate, & professional athletes, weekend warriors, as well as complicated orthopedic and neurological cases.
Phil earned a degree in Sports Medicine from Marist College in 2013 and worked for several years as a trainer at high-end Manhattan gyms. He found PRI after searching both academia and the health & fitness world for an answer to years of pain and dysfunction leading up to and following five surgeries to his hips and knees. PRI allowed him to regain an active lifestyle that he feared may have been lost, and he went on to become credentialed in PRI in 2021. In 2022, he became licensed in Massage Therapy after graduating from River Valley Community College, making him the only person in North Carolina with his particular combination of certifications. His unique training allows him to work with a wide range of people, and he is committed to helping others find similar success to his own, especially in the context of post-physical therapy continuation of care. Phil uses manual and non-manual PRI techniques integrated with strength and conditioning and is also able to provide Swedish, deep tissue, and myofascial massage therapy.

History of Passion

The Postural Restoration Institute (PRI) is built around 30 years of clinical practice associated with recurring successes of specific patient treatment programs. We established reproducible, outcome-based programs based on consistent evidence-based correlations, discovered with patient biomechanical, respiratory, and neurological functional patterns and limitations. My passion for the integrated systems of the body has resulted in an examination and intervention process of the asymmetrical human body called Postural Restoration.
