About Nguyet Howard & Skillful Touch Massage

My passion: To help you get out of pain and enjoy your active life – at any age.
Vikki Howard Skillful Touch Massage

 

My passion and focus at Skillful Touch Massage is to help my clients prevent,
eliminate, or minimize pain, and I apply over a decade of experience and training in massage therapy to consistently reach that goal.

 

I first discovered the potential of massage therapy when I suffered from a painful back injury, and massage helped me heal and recover.

 

Over the 11+ years since then, I have developed specialized expertise in using
massage therapy – especially orthopedic and rehabilitative massage – to help others get out of pain.

 

Some of my clients are weekend athletes looking for relief from pain caused by overuse or injury, others are seniors wanting to recover their mobility, and some are baby boomers dedicated to maintaining their flexibility, energy, and overall health for the coming decades. Seeing them feel better and enjoy their lives more because of my treatments is what motivates me every day.

 

My approach: individualized, empowering, and truly therapeutic.
Each of my sessions is highly individualized. I will thoroughly assess your health history and current condition, and then offer a finely tuned combination of various massage and manual therapies – including Thai and sports massage – to
effectively address your individual needs and goals. No cookie cutter protocols, ever. By sharing my findings and recommendations with you, I want to empower you to make better decisions about your own health, and to practice effective self-care.

 

My space: calm, professional, and comfortable.
My practice is located in a quiet residential area of San Antonio. You will find a calm, clean space. There is no rush, no phones ringing, and no other clients waiting outside. The entire session will be a time fully dedicated to your health and wellbeing.

My education and training: above and beyond the requirements.

I have over 11 years of training and experience in massage therapy, including:

  • Over 1000 hours of massage education, more than twice the amount required by the state of Texas.
  • Over 500 hours of advanced massage training at Lauterstein-Conway, the renowned massage training school in Austin, Texas (2010 National School of the Year Award at the World Massage Conference).
  • Advanced training in massage with an emphasis on massage that seeks to address pain and injuries affecting movement or orthopedic massage.

 

I also hold an Associates Degree in Arts & Sciences with a focus on Physical Therapy, and I recently earned a BA in Social Work (graduated summa cum laude). Before setting out to become a Licensed Massage Therapist, I worked as a nurses’ assistant with cancer patients.

 

I am committed to continuously deepen my knowledge, develop my skills, and integrate
new scientific findings into my treatment approach.
