Board Certification in Therapeutic Massage and Bodywork (NCBTMB)
Board Certification in Therapeutic Massage and Bodywork is the highest voluntary credential a massage therapist can obtain within the profession—it is above and beyond entry level state licensure. By becoming Board Certified, I represent a community of therapists who have gone above standard educational and work experience requirements with a dedicated and lifelong commit to continuing education. Furthermore, I live up to higher standards and ethics in alignment with The National Certification Board for Therapeutic Massage and Bodywork (NCBTMB).
To achieve my Board Certification, I provided proof of a minimum of 750 hours of education, 250 hours of professional, hands-on work experience, passed a criminal background check, agreed to uphold NCBTMB's Standards of Practice and Code of Ethics, and passed the Board Certification Exam. By passing the BCTMB and meeting all requirements, I demonstrate advanced assessment and critical thinking skills, as well as a commitment to excellence. I wear the credentials BCTMB with pride for myself, my profession, and, most importantly, my clients.

NAT uses deep stroking massage and compression/ inhibition techniques blended together in a choreographed algorithm. In NAT, trigger points are regarded not as the familiar knots of muscular dysfunction, but as ‘inputs’ to the spinal cord and central nervous system.
This is because trigger points are exquisitely painful - and stimulating the pain pathways has many profound effects on the nervous system, including the attenuation of peripheral and central sensitization.
