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.

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.

REVIEWS for my Bodywork services

by Anonymous on Sep 04
Once again, my latest massage session with Martin left me feeling relaxed and with much improved mobility and reduced pain in areas that have bothered me. Martin’s meticulous in his preparation for each session-from studying his past treatment notes and talking with me to understand my current condition to creating the perfect ambiance to sooth both mind and body. He demonstrates extreme caring and concern during our sessions and carefully explains his treatment. I’ve enjoyed several rejuvenating sessions with Martin and always look forward to the next.

Martin is a consummate professional, even in my small and sloppy home. He is nonjudgmental and creates a safe and relaxing environment to receive a thorough and relaxing massage therapy session. I would recommend him to anybody.
