Holly is a Certified Neuromuscular Therapist, educator, and published author. She has been a licensed, practicing therapist since 1999 when she graduated from the Utah College of Massage Therapy in Salt Lake City.
A mountain biking accident on Mackinac Island in Michigan introduced Holly to the rehabilitative effects of therapeutic massage leading to a career change. After graduating from UCMT, Holly moved to Puerto Rico and expanded her skills at the Golden Door Spa. Moving to Arizona she reached further, expanding into chiropractic offices and fitness facilities before opening her private practice.
In 2002, she heard Judith DeLany, founder of NMT American Version, speak at a national massage therapy conference, and inspired, began studying NMT in 2003. After completing the training, she became the Phoenix staff assistant for the Neuromuscular Therapy training program in 2006. Holly currently assists in all Phoenix NMT workshops and had the pleasure of assisting Judith with her NMT presentation at the 2008 National AMTA Convention in Phoenix.
While the core focus of her work is NMT and orthopedic massage, both medical and anatomically focused, Holly has also studied Lymphatic Drainage, Energy Medicine and other modalities, building bridges between the physical and energetic pathways of health and healing. She has presented workshops on topics ranging from Self-massage Techniques, Laughter Yoga, Stress Relief, and Self-care Tips with Breath, Energy and Movement. Articles include the Benefits of Massage Therapy and Getting the Right Massage for You.
