I’ve been practicing Massage Therapy since 1983.  I specialize in clinical pain relief and injury rehabilitation (a.k.a. “medical massage”) for a variety of acute and chronic problems like:

  • acute and chronic pain
  • car wrecks and whiplash
  • migraines and other headaches
  • sports injuries, TMJ disorders
  • frozen shoulder, tendinitis
  • sciatica, plantar fasciitis
  • carpal tunnel syndrome, etc.

People come to me because they hurt! I can almost always help regardless of the source, severity, or duration of the pain. I am certified in advanced myofascial techniques [CAMT] by Advanced-Trainings.  I also use a wide variety of other techniques I’ve learned in 30+ years of professional practice.

I can bill car insurance if you’ve been in an accident, and I take letters of protection from attorneys. I am happy to bill Workers’ Compensation with a pre-authorization and specific prescription.

Many of my clients pay me through their Medical Savings Accounts (MSA) or Flexible Spending Accounts (FSA). I can swipe the card or give you a receipt the benefits manager will accept.

Health insurance ought to pay for massage, but it rarely does.  Some policies will pay for massage, but only if performed by a doctor, chiropractor, or PT. Check your policy.  If it covers treatment by massage therapists, I’ll give you paperwork so that you can be reimbursed. However, I will need to be paid in advance.

As the Government Relations Chair of my professional association, AMTA-NM, I assure you that we are working tirelessly on getting massage covered by health insurance as an “essential benefit” under the Affordable Care Act. Unfortunately, until we succeed your payment options are limited.

  1. I was in Albuquerque for the Inline Speed Skating Nationals. The morning of my second race I had a horrible headache and muscle spasms. After an intense hour and a half massage, I no longer had pain and that evening I had my best race of my skating career. Thanks, Donald!

    1. Thank you, Linda! I was happy to have been able to get you relief from an acute situation. Your skating success that evening is a wonderful surprise!
