About N Balance Medical Massage Therapy

Our expertise comes from experience.

No revolving door of therapists here.  With over 40 years of combined experience, the therapists at N Balance Medical Massage Therapy are highly trained, educated and experienced to provide an exceptional medical and sports massage experience.  From the moment you walk into our office you immediately know that we are not a “spa,” you have entered a place of therapy, a place of balance.  EVERY session begins with a thorough assessment and posture analysis.  We take the time to listen to you and attempt to determine where the cause of your pain and discomfort are coming from.  Using posture analysis and active range of motion we allow your body to reveal to us areas of imbalance that may be the root cause of your pain.  We utilize a copywritten full body protocol that was 30 years in the making to treat and restore balance to your body.

If additional tools are needed, such as oils, ice/heat, cupping, SASTM, Hypervolt…etc. then we implement them at no extra cost.

Here at N Balance Medical Massage Therapy, it’s about you, our clients.  Our therapists continually strive to provide an exceptional experience by continuing their education and working together as a team.  We are not doctors, we are not physical therapists nor chiropractors. We will gladly work together with your medical professionals to find the best course of care for your discomfort.  We look forward to helping you achieve total body balance.

I have been in practice since 1997, graduated from Physician’s Institute of Therapeutic Massage.  I always knew that I wanted to work in physical medicine so I trained in Neuromuscular Massage Therapy with Paul St. John, founder of Neuromuscular Massage Therapy.  I’ve completed thousands of hours in continuing education with the primary focus on medical and sports massage therapy education and techniques.  I have now been provided the opportunity to expand from my independent practice and surround myself with talented like-minded massage therapists.  I’m excited to share my experience, education and training with my team as we work together to provide exceptional and quality care.  Experience/Training: St. John’s Method of Neuromuscular Massage, Neurosomatic Therapies, Graston, Cupping, Titleist Performance Institute Level 2 TPI Certified 2)   SFMA Certified

My time in the Army gave me the opportunity to experience the potential in being a full time soldier and being part of the dental field, however I quickly realized neither were right for me. My mind would periodically go back to massage therapy, as I would remember how I used to help my parents relax after a long day of work with an amateurish back rub. One day I decided to stop brushing it off as if it wasn’t a favorable option and enrolled at Northwest Career College. Since graduating I have found my passion in medical and sports massage therapy. A spa setting was just not where I felt I belong. The challenge of continuous learning to help those in pain has driven me to pursue more. Working at N Balance Medical Massage Therapy is providing me with the opportunity, training and expectations to provide the best care I can and be a leader in this field. I look forward to helping you find better postural balance and overall better health through medical massage. Outside of work, I love going for walks or being home with my cats and playing video games.

Because of my 15 years of dance experience, and multiple injuries, I was introduced to massage & other forms of body work. I pursued dance as a career, but I realized it was not meant to be. However, I still wanted to help dancers & athletes, so I decided to go to massage school. After graduating from Northwest Career College, my first experience was in a spa setting. I quickly realized I was more drawn to the medical side of massage. I then continued my education by getting certified in Fascial Stretch Therapy (FST). Working at N Balance has provided the opportunity to continue learning and working with different clients, to help them find balance in their bodies and their everyday lives. Outside of work I like to dance salsa & ballet, be with family & friends, and go on walks with my dog, Indy.

Through years of exploring different career fields and different interests, I discovered my passion for yoga and Reiki. After becoming certified in these practices, I was set on my path and my career. Yet I kept getting the message that I could go deeper with my clients and help them go even deeper in their healing. I didn’t know what that meant until I received my first professional massage. That was when it all finally clicked for me, I signed up for school and quickly realized my passion and natural talent for massage therapy. I found it to be the perfect bridge to connect the mind, body, and soul and provide much-needed balance. I am a certified Reiki master and also hold certifications in The Spurgeon Methodᵀᴹ  of breast massage. Outside of work I love to draw, do yoga, and spend time with my birds and dogs.


I graduated from the Nevada School of Massage Therapy in 2009 with both the Professional and Master Bodyworker programs. I’m excited to be working with Angel again and to join her team at N Balance Medical Massage Therapy.

Over the last 12 years, I have completed over 1000 hours of continuing education in both Eastern and Western modalities, including Medical Massage, Breast Massage “The Spurgeon Method”, Manual Lymphatic Drainage, Cranial Sacral Therapy, Reflexology, and Reiki.  I have found that the best results come from truly listening to my clients, a proper evaluation, and allowing healing energy to deeply relax my clients and bring about homeostasis where the body’s innate healing ability is activated.

My passion for healing is equal to my passion for nature. I love to be outside as often as I can and look forward to the day when I can surround myself again with horses.  There’s nothing like connecting with nature and the soulful spirit of a horse.

Growing up as an athlete, I had zero awareness of the importance of recovery.  Playing basketball, we were required to do the same butterfly and bicep stretches every day, but I only did them during practices and games, and never on my own.  Playing rugby, I didn’t take mobility seriously and received multiple injuries throughout the season.  Fast forward to 2019, I tore both of my calves at the same time during a rugby game and couldn’t walk without discomfort until after 4-6 weeks.  During the recovery phase, I received my first sports massage, and the relief I felt afterward was life-changing!  I was able to get back on the field within a couple of sessions with an impressive improvement in my range of motion.  The way the body recovers and the importance of injury prevention piqued my interest in the world of massage therapy and I wanted to share that healing with others.  Since graduation I worked at a local stretch-only clinic and have recently journeyed here to N Balance Medical Massage Therapy with a great team of therapists and a leader, Angel.  I am currently training for certifications in personal training, nutrition, strength and conditioning coaching, and sports massage.  Outside of work, I enjoy sporting events, dancing, Blue Moon, Cooking for my loved ones, memes, and finding new food spots.  I look forward to working with you in your journey of wellness and recovery!
