Expert Massage Therapy in Mueller

Muscles move bones. Sometimes merely adjusting bones doesn’t allow for quick or completely effective treatment. Therefore, we offer highly skilled and targeted myofascial treatments as an adjunct to manipulation.

Therapeutic massage as a complement to chiropractic facilitates the natural healing process by addressing the musculo-skeletal components from both sides; muscles and skeleton. The therapeutic effects of massage alone include relaxation, improved circulation, diminished muscle pain, improvement of cellular nutrition and relieve from stress and anxiety. Massage increases the effectiveness of chiropractic by aiding the body in preparing for adjustments, promoting free nerve flow, and helping increase circulation.

Sometimes we will recommend a concentrated period of both massage and chiropractic in the beginning and other times we’ll recommend one or the other. Dr. Paris can help assess which treatment courses will be most beneficial to you.

Not Just for Patients!

Our ‘hand-picked’ therapists are continually updating their education and skills. We have master’s classes regularly where we share techniques and discuss cases. Though some or all of therapeutic bodywork may be covered by insurance if you are a patient, many people come to the office just for top quality exceptional massage therapy.

Massage appointments are available by appointment 7 days a week.


Meet the Therapists


Anna Suarez, LMT

AnnaAnna Suarez, born here in Austin Texas; has lived in Houston, Dallas, San Jose, Philadelphia. Los Angeles and Mexico City.  She has worked as a teacher, bus driver, stay-at-home mom (her favorite), and various office positions. As a child, Anna was raised within an atmosphere of healers.  Her grandfather, who immigrated to this country from the Canary Islands, was a healer and lecturer. Her other grandfather, Dr. Roy E. LeMond, D.C., was a Palmer graduate and practiced in Austin.  He and his fellow “quack-opractors”, as they were referred to in those days, were instrumental in lobbying the 51st legislation to pass and enact the bill that created the first Texas Board of Chiropractic Examiners; he held license #10.  In addition Anna has had 3 aunts, a great uncle, and her mom’s brother who all were practicing chiropractors.  You could say Anna had a well-adjusted childhood! Finding herself at a career crossroads, a friend who knew Anna’s propensity to sense tension in a person’s body and want to do something to alleviate that tension, suggested she attend massage school. Since 1992 she has been relieving aches and pains and facilitating healing ever since. Her continuing education includes, but is not limited to: pre-natal massage, cranial sacral therapy, acupressure, reflexology and neuromuscular therapy.  She has worked with some of the best chiropractors in clinical settings as well as maintaining a thriving private practice with many clients she has seen for over 12 years. Anna is excited to be working with Dr. Paris, Dr. Fisher, the other massage therapists, and all the wonderful women in the front office.  It is truly a great healing facility.


 

Mueller LMT, Marques Johns

Marques Johns, LMT

A native of Texas, though recently returning from working in Chicago, Marques has been serving the Austin community since 2006 as a massage therapist. He began training in myofascial release and structural dysfunction therapy in 2007. He is able to quickly adapt and apply various techniques seamlessly into his scope of knowledge in dealing with numerous structural dysfunctional issues which proven have to be highly effective for our patients. He can assess and treat many soft tissue problems while at the same time educating the patient to give them an understanding of how the dysfunction has been established , as well as helping each individual learn measures of self care that can reduce and sometimes reverse their situation.  Working in conjunction with Dr. Paris and the other therapists, he is happy to have joined our team and has quickly become an integral part of Whole Family.

Marques’ ultimate goal is to help facilitate a rebalancing of the musculoskeletal system, educate the people he treats so that they are equipped with a better knowledge of self-care to prevent structural abnormalities, and doing so in a manner that is safe, comfortable, and professional.
