Welcome Sonu Patel
Born in India, Sonu's parents incorporated a belief in healing and massage into their livelihood and applied this philosophy into raising their children.
"I have a passion for healing," Sonu said. "And massage is the avenue I use to guide my clients down the path to good health."
Sonu works at the intuitive level, customizing each massage by carefully concentrating on the clients muscles and structural integrity; consequently, rarely talking during his massages.
His professional temperament adds an honest approach to all practices of massage including deep tissue, Swedish, therapeutic, and sports massage to create his unique style. His goal is to enhance his clients' mobility, improve flexibility, and enhance healing.
His clients describe his massage as Sonu's fingers melting into the skin as he moves the fascia before sinking into the muscles, gently lingering to remove a blockage and enhance blood flow. Intuitively, he pauses with pressure, reminding the muscle how to let go as a natural response to his gentle techniques.
With his early knowledge of muscles and his love of sports, Sonu was naturally attracted to the wrestling as a child. At the age of 10, he advanced into wrestling professionally where he remained for the next 20 years. In 2004, he earned 1st place and became Australian Wrestler Champion and also placed 2nd in the Free Style Wrestling Olympic Qualifying Tournament.
"My experience as a wrestler has enhanced my knowledge of the body which has helped me develop my unique and effective massage techniques," Sonu explained.
His career not only took him to Australia but also to Germany, Russia, and Georgia. When in Georgia (Russia) as a professional wrestler, he was asked to join the massage therapist to massages the Olympic athletes.
Sonu's interest is not limited to sports massage, as he felt honored to have massaged his grandfather through the aging process. His clients include individuals, of all ages, with fibromyalgia, migraines, sciatica, whiplash, shoulder pain, and tennis elbow, just to mention a few. He believes that regular massage helps to maintain good health, eliminates numerous negative possibilities, and benefits a person's overall feelings of well-being.

MEET TINA BARTON
Tina Barton graduated from Muscular Therapy Institute, established by Dr. Ben Benjamin, and received her state license in 1997, a year before Advanced Therapeutic Massage opened their first office in Cedar Park.
After being introduced to other modalities of massage, she prefers Dr. Ben Benjamin's system. She initially approaches her client's body with a light, relaxing touch as she locates problem areas. Then her massage becomes more focused on the muscles, applying deeper pressure, working at the musculotendinous junction. This is the area where the muscle meets the tendon. This technique has the same results as deep tissue massage and has minimum discomfort for the tightest muscles. However, Tina's massages can be intense after she slowly introduces her technique to her client's nervous and muscular system.
Without any additional charge, Tina is willing to work with her clients during their massage to teach portions of the Alexander Techniques, as it compliments massage through retraining the body to move in a more relaxed, comfortable way. The technique helps posture, reduces stress, and improves health. This technique is used by many performing artists and athletes to enhance performance.
"Helping to improve the health of my clients, through education, empowers them to have control over stress that has physical effects," Tina said. "I will not lecture, but if asked, I will educate. Improving one's posture will permit the muscles to keep the spine aligned, and allow the body to function normally."
Tina cooperates with doctors and takes pride in being a member of her client's health care team, encouraging and helping them to reach their maximum potential. She enjoys working with senior citizens to enhance their lives and to keep them active and productive. Several of Tina's clients have remarked about the heat they felt coming from her hands while receiving a massage by Tina. Though she is modest about this phenomena, we all agree that anyone feels blessed who receives a massage from her.
