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.
