About this pro

Being a mobile out-call massage service is a great way to separate myself from the rest of the competition. I'm a licensed massage instructor RMTI-S0329, and have been licensed as an LMT since 2001. I've had the opportunity to work on quite a few celebrities including actors: Sean Penn, Sean Patrick Flanery, Clark Gregg, Alice Eve, Rebecca Hall, Julie Warner, and Carrotop, rock stars: Adam Levine, Harry Connick Jr, Aaron Lewis, Korn, Papa Roach, and Tesla, local celebrities: Governor Susana Martinez, Diego Sanchez UFC, and many other celebrities of different traits. I have a photo album on my website showing many of the celebrities I've worked on. I've always liked being able to help people. It makes me feel good after massaging someone when they tell me, "That's the best massage I've ever had!" Since I was 5 years old I've been massaging my family and friends. Some people say I have "Old Hands" referring to me as a reincarnated massage therapist.

    Q & A

    • What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?
      Corporate chair massage events differ in price range than a mobile table massage service. I charge $55/hr per therapist, and a $25 one time travel fee for each therapist each day of service. So it gets a little complicated figuring out how many therapists a company needs depending on how many employees need to be treated and how long they want their sessions (15 minutes is average). I schedule 5 minutes in between each client as well, so every 20 minutes a person is getting massaged. Break times are not included in charges, but intervals are.
    • What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?
      It's required by law that all state licensed massage professionals take 16 CEU's every 2 years, and I am up to date on mine. I usually learn courses involving: medical massage, neuromuscular therapy, deep tissue massage, trigger-point therapy, and sports massage. As a massage instructor RMTI-S I'm required to take more CEU's than an LMT, so I have all my T's crossed and all my I's dotted.
    • How did you get started doing this type of work?
      When I was 15 yrs. old I was involved in a car accident which has changed my life forever. I have since had 3 back and neck surgeries related to that accident. A lot of my rehabilitation involved massage therapy, so I learned at a young age how important it was to get them. Even by the age of 5 I was massaging my friends and family, so I guess my profession started then, and it's always been a part of who I am.
