I am a Licensed Massage Therapist in the State of Washington (see credentials lower down). You'll find many of the the healing modalities that I have trained in and practiced below. Since licensure  OVER 27 years ago, I have practiced over 32,000 massages. I am thrilled to have reached this personal milestone.

Outside of massage, I have many interests, including travel, preforming theater, beekeeping, gardening, growing fruit and veggies at AHA urban farm, and getting into and photographing the great outdoors, with hiking biking, kayaking. With my wife Lisa, I sing in the troupe, "Spiritual Travelers".

When you come for your appointment you may enjoy our garden before or after your massage, please come though the french doors, have a cup of tea and we will be right with you.

Here at  Admiral Healing Arts Garden Cottage, my wife Lisa Dodge-Johnson is also practicing massage (and Hair and Skin care ) link to her site:, 206.841.4112. We thank you for visiting and look forward to meeting you.

Best, Ted and Lisa
