Hello! My name is Martin Marx and I am a licensed massage therapist (LMT) in Henderson, Nevada.
I will be using this Blog as a platform to provide information that will help you improve your knowledge of anatomy and enable you to uncover what might be causing you any discomfort. Massage therapy enhances your sense of well-being and creates an overall feeling of relaxation allowing your mind, body, and spirit to align for the purpose of better health.
First, a little background…
I recently retired, after a 36-year career as a Mechanical Engineer, to become a licensed massage therapist, another passion that is very close to my heart.
I first learned about massage therapy as a student at Gonzaga University (Go Zags!). I agreed to be the “demonstration body” for a classmate’s presentation if he would teach me his techniques. After that I started using the techniques on family and friends.
When my youngest daughter was 4 she suffered a serious face wound caused by a vicious dog attack. During her recovery process, a close friend put a newspaper ad for Swedish massage training on my work desk with a note saying “This is for you.” I began my official training and discovered a world of alternative medicine that had been scientifically proven to help improve recovery from an injury or illness, prevent disease, and relieve stress. Two years after the dog attack my daughter was still experiencing nightmares even though her physical wounds had healed perfectly. During my massage training I had pursued a technique known as Craniosacral Therapy and after the first treatment for my daughter, her nightmares stopped. I became a believer!
I received my certification in Idaho and over the years I have continued to help provide relief and relaxation to family and friends through Swedish, Craniosacral, and other massage techniques. In 2014 I retired from Engineering R&D. My wife, Barbara, and I moved to Las Vegas, Nevada and, in 2015, I received my Nevada Massage Therapist license after completing an 815.5 hour curriculum that included a 120 hour clinical internship with the Nevada School of Massage Therapy.
I currently perform my therapeutic massage and structural bodywork services on an outcall basis in Henderson, and Las Vegas. Please visit my website for more details about my services and how to contact me for an appointment.
