You can read about each of us and our backgrounds and formal training below:
Nancie began her career at Desert Mountain Golf Club, before realizing she had an entrepreneurial spirit calling out to be expressed. She started her own business and never looked back.
She’s focused her practice and her continuing education on Gait and Postural analysis, Myofascial Release, and Neuromuscular and Deep Tissue Therapy. She also practices Stretch Therapy (FST) and Sports Injury Management, and is Titleist Performance Institute Certified. She frequently uses cold laser and electrical stimulation in her treatments, particularly for those clients with an injury.
In addition to treating them, educating her clients on how to take care of themselves is a primary feature of Nancie’s practice. She receives great satisfaction by helping others reach their health goals.
On a personal level, she enjoys working out, outdoor sports, and has a love for music and the arts. Don’t be surprised when she starts singing your treatment plan to you! Nancie is also a big lover of animals, and likes to spend her spare time volunteering with animal rescue facilities.
Pagona offers a unique background and highly-personalized treatment to each of her clients. Since graduating from the International Massage Institute (IMI) in Michigan, she’s remained dedicated to her continuing education and professional training, developing numerous specialties along the way, including Myofascial, Sports, Stretch Therapy, and her personal favorite, Prenatal Massage.
After completing her schooling in massage therapy, Pagona was fortunate to begin working with masters in the fields of Neuromuscular and Deep Tissue Therapy. This enabled her to specialize in physical rehabilitation.
Outside of her professional pursuits, Pagona is deeply committed to charity work: she raises money and volunteers her time for the Guerrant Foundation, which provides microloans to women in third world countries and helps them start their own businesses.
Her other passion is travel. She returns to her homeland, Greece, at least once a year, bringing friends and tourist groups in tow. As a local, she shows them a side of Greece that few ever get to see… and they love her for it!
