Monika, Massage Therapist

I was born and raised in Hungry. After high school, I was a professional handball player and my team had a massage therapist. Nothing felt better on my tired aching muscles than a massage. When I finished with handball, I decided to pursue a career in massage therapy. I attended massage school in Hungry with a focus in the energy work known as Prana-Nadi. I learned the basic technique of medical, deep tissue, and sport massage. In 1995 I moved to Reno, Nevada and continued taking classes for massage. I specialize in sports massage, deep tissue, prenatal, neuro-muscular massage, hot stone, face lifting, lymphatic drainage, carpal tunnel, and sciatica.

Jason, Massage Therapist (South Reno)

Born in Anaheim California and moved to Reno at the age of 7 to be close to the mountains clean air and less traffic! I was attending the University of Phoenix for a business degree and pursuing personal training when me and my wife decided to go to the Milan Institutes massage program. I originally went to massage school to get a better understanding of anatomy to be a better personal trainer but fell in love with what massage can do to help the body recover and achieve proper health. I believe along with chiropractic, and routine massage, people can avoid surgery and medications. I specialize in integrative therapy, PNF, sports, stretching techniques, pre-natal, myofacial release and continue to learn advanced therapies.
