Structural Bodywork and Therapeutic Massage Therapist

I recently retired after a 36-year career as a Mechanical Engineer to become a massage therapist, another passion that is very close to my heart.  I first learned about massage therapy as a student at Gonzaga University.  I agreed to be the “demonstration body” for a classmate’s presentation if he would teach me his techniques.  After that I started using the techniques on family and friends. 

When my youngest daughter was 4 she suffered a serious face wound caused by a vicious dog attack. ...

I recently retired after a 36-year career as a Mechanical Engineer to become a massage therapist, another passion that is very close to my heart.  I first learned about massage therapy as a student at Gonzaga University.  I agreed to be the “demonstration body” for a classmate’s presentation if he would teach me his techniques.  After that I started using the techniques on family and friends. 

When my youngest daughter was 4 she suffered a serious face wound caused by a vicious dog attack.  During her recovery process, a close friend put a newspaper ad for Swedish massage training on my work desk with a note saying “This is for you.”  I began my official training and discovered a world of alternative medicine that had been scientifically proven to help improve recovery from an injury or illness, prevent disease, and relieve stress.  Two years after the dog attack my daughter was still experiencing nightmares even though her physical wounds had healed perfectly.  During my massage training I had pursued a technique known as Craniosacral Therapy and after the first treatment on my daughter, her nightmares stopped.  I became a believer.

Over the years I have continued to help provide relief and relaxation to family and friends through Swedish, Craniosacral, and other massage techniques.  In 2014 I retired from Engineering Research and Development and my wife, Barbara, and I moved to Las Vegas, Nevada.  In 2015 I received my Nevada Massage Therapist license after completing an 815.5 hour curriculum that included a 120 hour clinical internship with the Nevada School of Massage Therapy.  My current massage practice is twofold:  (1) I have my own practice at Natural Wellness Centers (Las Vegas) three days a week, and (2) I am available for outcall and volunteer work two days a week.

This is the best massage I have ever had!
by Linda on Nov 04
I felt very comfortable with Martin and was impressed with his professionalism and skills. He knew exactly where my body needed the most work. As a former massage therapist, I was delighted to find that our energies were in tune with each other. I will continue to use his services.

Amazing all the way across the board. The best parts were the detailed attention that Martin gave to my stated areas of concern and the sharing of very specific information along each step of the massage as to what he was doing and how he was addressing the areas of concern.
