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.

REVIEWS for my Bodywork services

by Staci on Dec 06
Gary Watson is the best massage therapist I’ve ever encountered and I have had hundreds of professional massages in my life. Besides being the most skilled therapist, he delivers a service that is so convenient and affordable that absolutely everyone should experience it. I have been hospitalized for a while abd Gary had no problem with bringing all of his gear to my hospital room and creating an amazing experience in what was for me otherwise unfavorable circumstances. I had booked the appointment for relaxation pampering after having been hospitalized for a week. Not only did I get the most relaxing massage, he was able to find, diagnose, and effectively treat muscle tension problems that I have suffered with for many years. His combination of technical skill, extensive training and education, and pure passion for massage therapy made him my new all time favorite LMT. I will Be swing Gary on a regular basis for a very long time. I’m so full of hope that I can finally really overcome my muscle issues that cause me chronic pain. In addition, Gary is so authentically approachable and warm and an excellent communicator/listener. I will be referring everyone I know to him.

Gary is a consummate professional, both humble and confident, and exceptionally knowledgeable. He has helped me to learn how to better manage my neck pain and headaches in between appointments, and each appointment with Gary brings significant pain relief and reduced tension in the problem areas. I highly recommend Gary as a trustworthy, medicinal massage therapist with a true healer’s mindset.

My experience was fantastic. Gary pays great attention to make the atmosphere very Zen, so you can relax. Then he works magic with my tired and upset muscles. I had a trigger point massage that has definitely relieved the tension in my neck and shoulders. Highly recommend Gary to anyone who needs a massage.
