"As a man thinketh in his heart, so is he!" --Proverbs 23:7--

I have finally found a career that I love and work very well with.  I am certainly not bold enough to state that I am the best, but I will say that those that I assist with massage therapy are most often very pleased with the results; it is very rare to have a client that is unhappy with the session.

I have finally found a career that I love and work very well with.  I am certainly not bold enough to state that I am the best, but I will say that those that I assist with massage therapy are most often very pleased with the results; it is very rare to have a client that is unhappy with the session.

From high school, people indicated that I should consider being a massage therapist (I was in choir, and our teacher would have us do warm-up exercises that included massaging your neighbors' shoulders). There were other times that the suggestion came up, but the answer was always the same --- "Eww. No."

I have investigated and pursued various careers, including--but not limited to--food service, theatre, construction & demolition, architecture, photography, the armed forces, management, quality inspection, aviation, 24-foot laminate press operator (used for making fabricated hardwood flooring), woodworker (making game tables, clocks, bunk beds, and cedar cabinets for linens, among other things), and driver's education instructor; I returned to college and obtained a Bachelor's Degree in Psychology with a minor in Marriage and Family Counseling and then worked with children and adults as a Psycho-social Rehabilitation Specialist (PSRS) teaching people basic anger management, communication, coping, and social skills. 

Over time, I continued to be unhappy with the several careers that I had chosen, but I had discovered through woodworking that I really enjoyed working with my hands and making things. So, after it was suggested yet one more time by some friends of mine, I finally relented and carefully selected a school that offered training for massage therapy---the International Institute of Massage Therapy; but it also offered training in energy work and taught introspection so that, as a massage therapist, I would be able to be more in tune with what clients were feeling and how to better assist them in finding relief. 

I worked and studied hard and graduated with a 3.5 GPA, I took the licensure exam not long after and scored 87% (greater than the required 80%), and received my Idaho  license in June of 2015.  I have been assisting people to feel relief from pain and discomfort since shortly after beginning massage school in April of 2014---for over two years now. 

Currently, I work with Legacy Health (formerly known as Wight Chiropractic) as a massage therapist; It is a phenomenal clinical atmosphere. Here, they are very aware of what clients are saying and what they need.  Together, with an outstanding office staff who know their jobs well, and with Dr. Wight and Dr. Thompson, we make an excellent team in determining the root cause(s) of the problem(s), addressing the root cause(s), and taking the necessary steps that will ideally lead to the full recovery of the client.  On occasion, there are people that the doctors feel we cannot help, and I appreciate that they are honest enough to indicate as much to those seeking assistance. 

I thoroughly enjoy using the skills that I have and helping the people I encounter feel better and healthier!

Acupressure

I am trained in locating various acupressure points that are commonly used to assist in alleviating symptoms and/or muscular tension.

Chair Massage

I am trained in using a massage chair to accommodate those that have difficulty lying down. I have used this method with several clients and have hosted many massage events for businesses and schools, offering massage in the massage chair.

Deep Tissue

I am trained in applying Deep Tissue massage for those that desire a more firm pressure and need/want to attend to those muscles that are deeper and not attended to as often. My grip can reach approximately 200 lbs. of pressure, and I know how to use proper leverage and body strength to reach clients' desired pressure.

Myofascial Release

I am trained Myofascial Release to help loosen tissue so that it is more flexible, possibly increasing range of motion.

Reflexology

I am trained in Reflexology (each part of the body corresponding to parts of the hands/feet), using both the hands and the feet of the client to stimulate muscular release and easing of symptoms. This is especially beneficial for those that have areas that cannot be accessed, but where there is pain; such as with burn victims.

Sports Massage

I am trained in the use of cryotherapy (ice) to reduce inflammation and sooth sore muscles. I have worked as an on-call massage therapist at the National Sumo Wrestling Competition in 2014 in Jackson, WY, where I worked on many of the competitors, including the champion of the competition.

Swedish

I am trained in Swedish massage --- applying bodywork that is relaxing and soothing, and encourages the body to heal; it's primary function is to ease muscular tension, release endorphins into the blood stream, and help the body rid itself of toxins by stimulating the lymph system.

Pregnancy

I am trained in Prenatal/Pregnancy massage. For those that are beyond the first trimester, we use a pad that is designed to provide room and protection for the fetus and still be able to apply proper techniques that will address the concerns of the client. For those that are uncomfortable laying face-down, even with the pad, side-lying positions can be used to provide comfort while still being able to access the muscles that need attention.

I have never had a massage before, but after having one from Tyler, I will be back! He made me feel comfortable and talked me through everything he was and would be doing so I could relax and just enjoy it. He listened to me and focused on the areas that were giving me trouble and did his best to make me feel better. I would recommend Tyler to anyone looking for a great massage therapist. I've already scheduled my next appointment!

I got my first massage ever from Tyler. Really nice guy and quite easy going. Super nice and always offers me bottled water. I expected to get a good muscle massage and feel better, but i didnt know that many techniques are involved such as pressure points, stretching, and healing energy. Drink plenty of water afterwards and you WILL feel jus absolutely amazing. Even energetic maybe.. This is tha place! Thanx -Will

Tyler has excellent hands and is able to use them to find those sore spots that I couldn't quite put my finger on; he is an energy worker, too, and uses a technique called Theta Healing to find those sore spots and help them find relief. After receiving chiropractic care from both of the doctors and Tyler, I feel more free and loose in my joints and muscles than I had for years previously. They really do an excellent job and make a wonderful team!
