Bob grew up in Massachusetts. Attended school in Weston, Deerfield Academy, the University of Mass. (Amherst) and, after a stint in the U.S.Marines, finished his schooling with a Master of Arts in Teaching at the Harvard University Graduate School of Education.
An offer to teach brought him to Virginia Beach, VA, where he also explored the fascinating psychic readings of Edgar Cayce. Eventually he took a job at Edgar Cayce’s A.R.E. and, among other assignments, became the Director of the Therapy Dept. where massage is a prominent offering. Experiencing the benefits of massage himself led to enrollment in the Pauline Fuller Massage School, graduating as a Certified Massage Therapist to be followed with one-on-one training from a pupil of Dr. Harold Reilly, friend of Edgar Cayce and devotee of his psychic readings. And this morphed into the start of “Massage From Bob” where he has been for the past 25 years.
