We have been in the same office building on Westcott Street near Memorial Park since 1993. We all take a personality assessment to insure we are compatible in the work place. We take a long term view of how maintain a happy working environment. We are all sole practitioners, but we wanted to create a TEAM concept so you can feel the healing energy in our office as we provide Neuromuscular Therapy in Houston.
Our primary therapy style is the clothes on technique called Neuromuscular Therapy. Instead of rubbing across the skin, we do "compression massage" on your tight muscles, which provides more focused relief yet stays within your comfort level. Of course, we can also do massage with lotion/oil.
If you BOOK an hour, we work on you for an hour!
Some massage businesses schedule your appointment for an hour, but you only get 45 to 50 minutes of therapy. With Massage Therapy Houston, whether you schedule 30 minutes or 90 minutes of therapy we make sure you get THERAPY for your whole session! (Disclaimer: If you are late for your session, we will still attempt to give you the whole time, but we need to honor the time of our next client.)

What Makes Neuromuscular Massage Therapy Different?
We communicate during your massage session so the therapy is within your desired comfort level.
We do advanced study of Anatomy and Physiology. This helps us understand which tight muscles might contribute to your area of concern. neuromuscular therapy
John, Mrs. Lewis, Carl Lewis and Ellen
Since our Neuromuscular training requires a more in depth study of anatomy and physiology, when we do a Swedish massage, we believe we can provide better relief than other therapists. Swedish Massage is extremely therapeutic as it decreases muscle toxins, increases oxygen levels in the blood, and improves flexibility in the body.
Combo therapy uses both Neuromuscular (NMT) and Swedish techniques. We usually start with NMT and finish with some relaxing therapy. Plan for a longer session so we can provide both experiences.

Plus we keep extra t-shirts and running shorts available if you are in business or cold weather dress. You should also know that most NMT clients come in to address a specific probl

You should also know that most NMT clients come in to address a specific problem, which means we may only need work on one or two areas of concern.
