Your MMP Specialists are just like an MMP/LMT except they have additional certifications in other fields (i.e. Oncology, Breast Cancer Rehabilitation, Lymphatic Drainage, TMJ Therapy). If you are not seeking treatment for the listed specialties, it is best you see an MMP/LMT instead of an MMP Specialist. If you have any questions, please give our office a call.
L.M.T., M.M.P., Orthopedic/Manual Therapist
Tonya completed the basic training for massage therapy and received her Texas license in May of 2000. She immediately began a mentorship program with a successful Naturopathic Practitioner and the owner/operator of the massage school where she attended, and where she immediately started her continuing education in the field. It was during this time that she gained an understanding of the body systems and how they function. In 2006 Tonya served as Director of the Massage division of ATI Career Training Center, and after a few years she left that position to follow her true passion of hands-on therapy. She then started her training for Orthopedic and Medical Massage, and attended training seminars presented by James Waslaski, founder of The Center for Pain Management. She later received certifications in the Professional Level, Master Level, and Advanced Medical Massage under the leadership and training of T.C. Cameron, owner and CEO of Advanced Bodywork and Massage.
Tonya has since studied a wide range of massage modalities, and over the last number of years she has broadened her skill set in areas which include Myofascial Release Therapy, Orthopedic and Medical Massage, Manual Lymphatic Drainage, TMJ/TMD therapy, Pre & Post Aesthetic Surgery Care, and Oncology/Breast Cancer Rehabilitation. She has been in association with Advanced Bodywork and Massage for seven years.
Tonya was raised in a Christian home and to this day she lives by her Christian values and by faith. She has raised two daughters, Hayley and Shannon, and they have given her four grandsons, Brennan, Brody, Kale and Landry. She loves spending time with her family and keeping up with their daily lives. She attends and enjoys her grandsons’ sports events and other school activities as often as possible.
Tonya’s genuine manner and therapeutic touch puts her clients at ease as she assesses every need and applies her knowledge to help resolve their pain.
