I have also reviewed Tavia on Yelp, where I normally focus my reviews, but her talent is well worth discussing here as well. Tavia is straightforward on the phone and tells you what her training is and asks in what way she can help you. I am recovering from an injury from sports, not only to mention 'stress' related issues from a cross country move that landed me in Albuquerque. Although I have only been able to see her a few times, her approach and understanding of my injuries along with her training in what I would call are 'medical massage' approaches has turned around pain and numbness I was experiencing. As a result I am back to my normal training routine and activity level, including sparring. I do hope to schedule with her soon for a tune up, but that highlights my whole point: Tavia has brought me from being injured and stressed, experiencing numbness on my left side to living without any of those afflictions. I should say, so you know, this type of massage--or medical massage therapy--costs somewhat more than the discount 'massages' that only uses the same word, but not approach in delivering those seeking help to true recovery and wellness. There's probably only one or two people live Tavia in any city across the country so be glad if you have found her here. http://www.jpdyelphelp.yelp.comJul 3, 2015Verified
Tavia is the best massage therapist we have ever used. She is very strong and takes the time to become familiar with areas we really need massage therapy. We love working with her and plan to continue on a regular basis. Great find Thumbtack!Mar 2, 2012Verified

Contacted muscle surfing a few hours before I needed it done and she was available! I hurt my back earlier in the day and she made it feel better. Arrived right on time.Nov 5, 2019Verified
We received excellent and professional service from Muscle Surfing. I would highly recommend them to everybody. I plan on contacting them again if we need to find an outstanding therapist. Tavia was friendly and courteous to the clients. I was extremely happy with the service. Thank you Tavia for doing a great job.Jun 11, 2014Verified
License Type: Licensed Massage Therapist (NM)
- 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.
