Massage Therapist, CMT, PhD
Healing comes not only from working out knotted muscles and tissues, but also from allowing your body to unwind and enter into a state of deep relaxation. As a holistic massage therapist I treat your physical injuries, tensions, and stress—and I also treat you as a whole person, inviting you to relax into a safe space of nurturing touch and comfort.

Who can practice massage in Tucson?
Most states have licensing requirements that must be met before a practitioner (a 'masseuse' or 'masseur') can use the title 'Massage Therapist', and some states require a license to practice any form of massage. Licensed Massage Therapists in Tucson have obtained the highest level of authentication. They must complete academic coursework in anatomy and physiology, as well as on the application of massage and bodywork, business and ethics, and specialized massage techniques. The Tucson LMT must then pass a certification exam.

What are the benefits of Tucson massage?
Clients use massage in Tucson because it relieves pain from muscle aches and sprains, muscle injuries and other causes of pain. It reduces stress and helps clients relax, and can decrease feelings of anxiety and depression by stimulating the release of endorphins and serotonin.

How does massage work?
Massage involves working and acting on the body using pressure from the hands, fingers, elbows, knees, forearm, or feet of the massage therapist. The Tucson massage therapist focuses on muscles, tendons, ligaments, myofacia, skin, joints, or other connective tissue, as well as lymphatic vessels, or organs of the gastrointestinal system.
