ABOUT

History

After graduating from massage school and opening Advanced Therapeutic Massage in 1996, founder Janice Jones recognized a significant need: to provide specialization in pain relief. She narrowed her focus to determining the root cause of pain and embarked on a journey through extensive continuing education coursework.

Since then, Advanced Therapeutic Massage has grown into a team… and an expanded perspective. Our therapists are like-minded and believe that quality bodywork plays a significant role in pain management, injury rehabilitation, symptom management and overall wellness.

Our Team

Advanced Therapeutic Massage is a gifted team of therapists who are well versed in varied techniques designed to bring balance back to the body, reduce pain and increase feelings of well-being. Our therapists are licensed by the state of Texas and have extensive amounts of experience and continuing education. Our knowledge, our belief in individualized care and our teamwork approach to body work allows us to be highly effective with a broad range of clients.

Because of the challenges of many of our cases, our therapists meet regularly to discuss client care. These meetings allow our team to draw on more than 50 years of collective experience in an effort to apply the best that massage training can offer. This piece of our teamwork approach is one of many that distinguish our work in the massage therapy field.
