  • Sallie H.

    Tana is a humble, sensitive, beautiful woman! She is kind, authentic and extremely knowledgeable and professional. She has had excellent training and she absolutely has the most intuitive hands and a born gift for massage therapy. She senses your areas of stuckness and works diligently to give you relief and comfort. I recommend her highly!! I moved away from Texas and have never found someone as great as Tana. I miss her healing nature and genuine caring! 💝

What is your typical process for working with a new customer?

After the initial interview , muscle testing and range of motion evaluation, I use appropriate techniques to facilitate greater flexibility starting with light palpating and moving into deeper techniques as the body allows.

What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

33 years of continuing education,35 to 150 hours annually! From light techniques like Craniotomy-Sacral and Reiki to deep tissue like Body electronics and Stretching. Hot Stone and some Thai massage. 

Do you have a standard pricing system for your services? If so, please share the details here.

$100/ hour for house calls, $50 plus $1/ minute for individuals in corporate chair massage!

How did you get started in this business?

Seeking relief from my own aches and pain,I took an introductory general massage class! Everyone in the class exclaimed their pleasure at my touch by the end of the day, even the instructor was saying I had a “gift”! As I left , I thought “if I am this good with the little I know, imagine what I could do if I knew more?” The training and teachers just synchronistically appeared ever since!

What types of customers have you worked with?

Every day people, rich to poor, in pain, mental , emotional, physical. Cerebral palsy, ALS, elderly, pregnant, children. I have worked Renaissance fairs, marathons, corporate offices, retirement homes and hospice, MS150 and Special Olympics!

Describe a recent event you are fond of.

I took a SMRT class in Austin in January and enjoyed it! The real “miracles” appeared between classes! Opportunities for a new residence for my mom and myself and job opportunities and many other synchronicities led me to move to Austin from Houston! New lifestyle, new friends and family connections, new adventures and experiences!!  

What advice would you give a customer looking to hire a pro in your area of expertise?

Get referrals! Ask questions!  Interview any potential therapists to avoid unpleasant experiences!

What questions should customers think through before talking to pros about their needs?

Most people do not have extensive understanding of this body we inhabit, we go through our daily routines on autopilot! You do not have to have a doctors knowledge! Most explanations in layman’s terms,though, will give you a greater awareness of the cause of pain and make sense when viewed in the big picture of our daily routines! Simple awareness and changes in habits can eliminate the emotional stress we store in our muscles!  Breathe Deeply! Drink plenty water! Simple fixes can be made automatically!
