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.

Makayla J.

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.

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.

Jenise McKnight

My name is Jenise, pronounced like Denise, but with a J. Most people just call me Jae. Even though I always thought I would find a career in psychology, my love for sports and helping others has led me to a career in medical and sports massage therapy. I’ve played sports, primarily basketball, since I was 6 years old. By the time I was at the collegiate level, I had received multiple awards and even played in a few All-Star games. All those years of playing basketball have taught me one very big lesson…..I didn’t take care of my body as well as I should have. I’m not playing as much as I used to, but I now have the knowledge and training to help players take better care of their bodies through medical/sports massage.

My experience working in a group home also inspired me to pursue working with the disabled. There are just so many ways that medical massage can help with performance, mobility, and recovery, both physically and mentally that I’m excited to help as many people as I can! All this has led me to pursue my career with N Balance Medical Massage Therapy, my new home. The environment is very family-like. Very supportive and passionate about care. They value teamwork, and as a team, we all strive to make each other better at what we do every single day. I look forward to adding Thai massage, stretch therapy, pre-natal, and cranial-sacral to my repertoire.
