Tina Wilson BS, LMT, CIMI, BCTMB, owner of Special Kneads LLC, is a licensed massage therapist, Certified Infant Massage Instructor and has been an instructor of Swedish Massage Theory & Practice at the Omaha School of Massage and Healthcare of Herzing University for seven years. In addition to teaching Swedish Theory & Technique, Tina teaches continuing education on Massage for Pregnancy, Labor and Post-Partum,  Introduction to Deep Tissue and Neuromuscular Massage, and Ethics for the Massage Professional.  Tina has been recognized for her teaching abilities with the Omaha School of Massage and Healthcare's Faculty of Scholarship Award (2011) and the Instructor of the Year Award (2013).  Tina is also an Approved Provider of Continuing Education by the National Board of Therapeutic Massage & Bodywork.

 

Although as a licensed massage therapist, Tina works with all kinds of people, she has a special place in her heart for people living with disabilities.  Tina has over 20 years experience working in a variety of settings with individuals with a wide range of physical, developmental and intellectual disabilities, both children and adults. She has experience working as a direct line caregiver, program manager, group home manager, and in settings with individuals with high medical needs.  In addition to her work experience, Tina also has personal experience as a caregiver for her brain-injured cousin for many years when she was a young teenager, and also as a mother to a son with autism.  

 

"When I became a massage therapist there was a natural pull to bring massage therapy to the special populations I've worked with in the past.  Imagine for a moment that you can't speak and you can't move voluntarily.  Now imagine that the only touch you receive regularly is for necessary things like diaper changes, tube feedings, suction machines, being moved in and out of chairs, or for uncomfortable procedures.   Those of us who have all our capacities and have full function of our bodies forget about the fact that we can hug, we can cuddle, we can experience and enjoy touch whenever we need or want it.  If we never got this kind of touch our lives would truly be lacking and it would have a negative psychological impact.   This is where massage can help special populations who don't have enough touch in their lives and offer these special individuals touch that is safe, gentle, comforting, and just for enjoyment." ~Tina Wilson

Tina was kind, knowledgeable, and compassionate to the pain I was in. She skillfully removed the tension in my low back and neck that was causing a 2 day migraine. I was very impressed with Tina's skill!
