About Me

About Mitchell Diaz, LMT

portrait01I 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 and formalized my practice into a company now called “Massage Rescue” (formerly is was “South Miami Neuromuscular Massage Therapy”).

My goal is to help each client reduce their experience of muscular pain, improve joint range of motion, and relieve stress through the use  of massage treatment, education, and practical self-help tips.

In serving the needs and best interests of my clients, I will always act with integrity by observing my professional scope of practice and honestly communicate the benefits, any potential risks, and the limitations of massage therapy.

My study and training of massage therapy began in 2003 at Lindsey Hopkins Technical Education Center (LHTEC) in Miami, FL. LHTEC is where I received my training foundation in massage therapy via completion of a 750 hours certification 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 understanding how bodywork techniques can impact our experience of pain and stress.
