Todd Luther, DC
I come from a family of health care practitioners (MD, RN, NP/MW) and knew early on that healthcare was my passion. But it wasn’t until I injured my low-back snowboarding and went to a chiropractor that I became interested in the healing art.
In Skagit County, I attended school in Clear Lake and Sedro-Woolley. Then continued at SVC, WWU and Life Chiropractic College West in California.
I’ve been practicing since 2005 and really enjoy helping patients overcome back/neck pain conditions that prevent them from living an active and fun life.
I love hanging-out with my wife and two kids and also enjoy snowmobiling, snowboarding, mtn-biking, dirt-biking, weight-lifting, reading, traveling and cooking.

Michael Berner, LMT
Techniques: Swedish, Deep Tissue, Sports, Myofacial Release, Triggoir-Point.
With a journey that began in 1993, my commitment to pain management runs deep. I specialize in assisting clients battling chronic pain, striving to prevent the necessity of surgery.
My approach is founded on the belief that everyone should emerge from the shadows of their ailments and rediscover their true selves. This philosophy isn’t just my profession; it’s my calling.
My expertise revolves around two core pillars: deep tissue bodywork and the intricate restructuring of muscular systems. Over the years, I’ve honed a diverse range of techniques, from Rolfing and trigger point therapy to Neuromuscular therapy and full-body reflexology. I even had the honor of learning directly from Shulman, an 84-year-old luminary, who shared his dynamic method, Shulman Therapy. This unique blend of formal education, personal experience, and specialized training has culminated in my approach, which I call “Dynamic Release Therapy” or DRT.
If you’re seeking profound healing for chronic dysfunction, whether it’s Plantar Fasciitis, hip discomfort, lower back pain, shoulder tension, neck issues, TMJ, or persistent headaches, I’ve got you covered from head to toe. However, I hold myself to a high standard: if, after three sessions, you don’t experience significant relief, I’ll openly admit that I may not be the therapist best suited for your needs.
My dedication extends beyond my work; it’s a commitment to every client I serve. I’ve had the privilege of working with notable individuals like Ed Bradley, Edward James Almos, Bon Jovi, Billy Bob Thornton, and currently work with Hillary Swank . I’m here to guide you toward a pain-free future, deeply invested in your well-being. Together, we can address your chronic issues and pave the way for a healthier, more comfortable life.

Stephanie Russo, LMT
Techniques: Injury Treatment, Deep Tissue, Acupressure, Myofascial
Release, and Relaxation
Since graduating from Spectrum School of Massage in 1994, I have enjoyed the
privilege of practicing massage; removing a bit of tension from the world, one
treatment at a time, is rewarding in and of itself.
It’s been proven that relaxation enhances healing, and my experienced hands
are skilled in a colorful palette of techniques for easing away tension with
respectful, compassionate touch. I specialize in slow, soothing techniques,
attuning to your verbal and non-verbal communications to gauge the pressure
In my experience, cupping is quite effective but under-utilized. It is an
ancient healing art from Asia, using suction to gently release restrictions from
deeper tissues, increasing blood flow, breaking up adhesions, and is a useful
complement for most pain relief treatments, including chronic conditions like scoliosis and restrictive scar tissue.
I moved to Bellingham to complete a Biology degree at WWU, and stayed for the
awe-inspiring beauty and the friendly community here. I love my peaceful country
home, with my husband, two dogs, and three cats, and our backyard nature
