About Mitchell Diaz, LMT
I have been a practicing Florida licensed massage therapist (LMT) since 2004. I got my start in the field like many others, working for other independent massage business owners while gaining practical/clinical experience. During that time I had the opportunity to learn many of the nuances of applying massage to a diverse population with differing and unique needs.
After about three years I became an independent massage business owner myself and began offering service at my clients home, business, and by occasionally renting a treatment room on a per diem basis from massage or chiropractic offices.
Driving around Miami 5-6 days a week can eventually take a toll on you, especially when you’re lugging around a massage table or chair. So in 2015 I planted my roots in an office in South Miami.
My aim is to provide value to my clients through the use of massage/bodywork therapy as a wellness and prevention strategy. Specifically this means using massage treatment, stretching techniques, and education structured for each client into personalized treatment plans to help them relieve muscular tension, relieve stress (both physical and mental), improve joint range of motion, reduce the experience of muscle and joint pain, stimulate circulation and restore function to joints and muscles.
In serving the needs and best interests of my clients, I will always act with integrity by observing my professional scope of practice, honestly communicate my qualifications, the benefits, any potential risks, and the limitations of massage.
My study and training of massage therapy began in 2003 at Lindsey Hopkins Technical Technical College (LHTC) in Miami, FL. LHTC is where I received my foundational training in massage therapy via completion of a 750 hours full-time training program. While the school is still in operation, it no longer has a massage therapy program which I guess makes me an “orphaned” alum. In July of 2004 I received my Florida massage therapy license (MA41802) and began practice.
I am committed to continuous learning about the human body and in understanding how bodywork techniques can impact our experience of pain, stress, and restore function to the body.
