My career in massage began in Killeen Texas in 2010, where I received 500 hours of education and hands-on instruction in a variety of modalities, focused mainly on Swedish Massage. I also received a quality education in anatomy, physiology, pathology, hygiene and ethics. I then became licensed with the state of Texas as a massage therapist and began performing massage on a contract basis. Because of my proximity to Ft. Hood, my clientele base during this time was largely military and I gained a great deal of experience with clients who suffered from chronic pain, especially in the upper back and neck.
In 2014, I elected to receive additional training in the state of Nevada, where I received another 720 hours of education and hands on instruction. I received valuable training in several new modalities such as acupressure, reflexology, and aromatherapy, while increasing my knowledge in previous areas of study. After graduating, I exceeded the requirements needed to transition from National Certification for Therapeutic Massage and Bodywork (NCBTMB) to Board Certification for Therapeutic Massage and Bodywork (BCTMB), thus achieving the highest available credential in my field. For me, Board Certification demonstrated my commitment to my clients and my career and I was thrilled to be accepted.
I opened up Silver State Deep Tissue & Therapeutic Massage in early 2020 and recently celebrated 10 years of being a practitioner of massage. I now specialize in deep tissue, as well as therapeutic massage techniques. I frequently work with physical conditions such as arthritis, limited range of motion in both hips and shoulders, sculiosis, fibromyalgia, carpal tunnel syndrome, and physical disablities etc.
In addition to physical conditions, I also have a number of clients who use massage to alleviate symptoms of stress and anxiety. Massage has many wonderful applications for both physical and mental wellness and can be used to help with function and pain in many ways.
