Mobile Massage Therapist

I became massage therapist due to injury to my right shoulder in which I had lost full range of motion & strength. It had given me problems for whole year. During that time i had gone to the doctor and had x-rays taken and other test done. Was told to ice and use resistance bands to ease pain and correct my shoulder problem.

I became massage therapist due to injury to my right shoulder in which I had lost full range of motion & strength. It had given me problems for whole year. During that time i had gone to the doctor and had x-rays taken and other test done. Was told to ice and use resistance bands to ease pain and correct my shoulder problem. Nothing i was told seem to really help. I remember receiving postcard in mail for free 15 minute chair massage and so i went not knowing what to expect. The massage therapist performed Trigger Point Therapy on my problem shoulder and to my surprise pain started to go away. Each time i received massage, pain was less and strength and range of motion got better. I immediately started to feel the positive effects of massage and it was only thing that really helped, so my goal is to help others just as it has helped me. 


I attended Arizona School of Massage Therapy (ASMT), in Phoenix,AZ back in 2007, which is ACCET accredited school. Completed a Professional Massage Therapy Program with total of 815.5 total hours of Eastern and Western bodywork modalities, including 115.5 hours of bodywork internship. In December of 2007, i received Certification and became Professional Licensed Massage Therapist (License # MT-10582) for State of Arizona. I am Certified member of ABMP  which is my malpractice massage insurance. 

To date i have worked on well over 10,000 clients while working for Massage Envy, Elements Massage & my private practice. I Currently working for Elements Massage only while trying to build my private practice in where i travel to clients homes or where ever they feel comfortable receiving massage. My goal is to have establish enough clientele to work for just myself and not for someone else. I've been able to help each and everyone of my clients. Some of most common issues i have worked on are: TMJ, headaches, migraines, neck & shoulders pain, frozen shoulder, back pain, carpal tunnel, hip pain, sacrum, SI joint pain, sciatic, fused cervical or lumbar vertebrae, leg & foot pain. I specialize in relaxation and working out any muscular issues, tension, pain, stress, tightness, & injuries people may have. Sometimes treatment can include Ice/ heat especially if requested. Each session is customize and pressure can range from light, medium, or firm to deep. Stretching can be done to improve range of motion during session and to get better results.

Gary was awesome! He listened to what areas were problem areas, took extra time in those areas and provided helpful tips to reduce those problem areas in between appointments. He was thorough, on time, friendly and very professional. Highly recommend Gary!

I love to train for Spartan Races! With that comes lots of sore and tired muscles. Gary was my massage coach for 4 months prior to my last race. I saw him once a week or every other week. I shaved 15 minutes off my race time from the year prior and beat my husband to the finish line. I feel amazing and youthful and recommend Gary to anyone wanting to live a healthy energetic life!

Gary is a really nice guy who does great work! My shoulders are often tight and make working out or lifting heavier things around the house uncomfortable, but an appointment with Gary helps me get the full range of motion without the discomfort. He's really knowledgeable about the muscles and how everything connects.
