Rise Medical and Sports Massage
Heal your body and Rise
Frequently Asked Questions
How should I prepare for my first treatment?
You will be asked to fill out a medical intake form. On your first visit, we will discuss any concerns or questions you may have. After a quick assessment, we will set a catered treatment focusing on your area of concern.
What should I expect after my first session?
After your first session, you and I will have a better understanding on what areas we need to treat and focus on. You may feel some tenderness and soreness after your massage. This is a part of the healing process. Your body will readjust to the release of scar tissue and muscle adhesion. Using various myofascial techniques, I will focus on increasing your joint mobility and flexibility. Home care will be discussed after your treatment.
What is a Medical Massage?
Unlike a spa where their focus is relaxation, a medical massage practitioner focuses on the intent of rehabilitative and/or restorative care. Although you may feel some relaxation during your medical massage, these techniques will help prepare the muscles and joints for specific treatments to use for various conditions or ailments. Keep in mind, additional knowledge and training on kinesiology, anatomy, and physiology are usually needed by the practitioner.
How often should I get treatments?
Your visits will depend on the progress of your treatments. As we work on removal of scar tissue and increase joint mobility, your body will learn to adapt to these changes as well as restoring muscle health and recovery. Most scar tissue are formed due to repetitive moving patterns, post injury, or post surgery. Breaking up scar tissue can easily grow back as it is broken down. Regular visits can minimize the growth and formation of scar tissue. Every two weeks or once a month is ideal to keep the progress of your treatments.
What extra precautions are you taking in your facility during COVID-19?
During these unprecedented times, the health and safety of both patients and therapists are my utmost priority. Massage rooms, common areas, surfaces, and any objects touched by either the patient or therapist are thoroughly cleaned, disinfected, and sanitized in accordance with CDC health guidelines.Therapists are required to wear a face mask the entire time and patients are required to wear a face mask upon entering the facility and massage room. Patients are required to wear a face mask during supine (face up) position and are recommended to wear a face mask during prone (face down) position.Give me a call or a text when you arrive in the parking structure. I will notify you when you may enter the facility and massage room. This will minimize the wait time in the waiting area. Hand sanitizer will be available in the massage room as well as face masks if you forget yours.

Medical and Sports Therapy
I’m a Medical Massage Therapist specializing in a variety of holistic treatment services that address the root causes and not just the symptoms of pains and ailments.
Deep Tissue Massage
Deep Tissue massage helps to treat muscle pain and improve stiffness. This technique is primarily used to treat chronic pain and sports injuries. Area of focus targets the inner layers of your muscles. It also promotes faster healing by increasing blood flow and reducing inflammation.
Trigger Point Therapy
Trigger points are hyperirritable spots in the muscle or connective tissue (fascia) also known as muscle knots. Trigger points usually radiate pain throughout the muscle when pressure is applied on that area. Trigger point therapy involve a more targeted approach; therefore, it is more therapeutic rather than relaxation.
Trigger point treatments involve applying direct pressure to a certain area, which can be uncomfortable or painful at first. This is where patient and therapist communicate to find the right amount of pressure to apply.
What is fascia?
Fascia is a thin casing or a web like structure of connective tissue that surrounds and holds every organ, blood vessel, bone, nerve fiber, and muscle in place. It is one continuous structure that exists from head to toe without interruption.
Myofascial release is a manipulative treatment that attempts to release tension in the fascia due to trauma, posture, or inflammation. Treatments involve: muscle shearing, muscle stripping, and muscle rolling.
Sports massage works deep in the muscles. It realigns muscle fibers, connective tissue, and help flush away the toxins. Regular sessions will increase joint mobility, flexibility, and reduce the risk of injury during exercise. Whether you are a professional athlete or a weekend warrior, this treatment can increase athletic performance and prevent muscle and joint injury.
Cupping uses a cup to pull an area of skin into a suction that decompresses muscles and connective tissue. This promotes blood flow to the compromised area, enhances circulation and helps to increase the body's own healing processes — almost like a backward deep tissue massage.
Benefits include pain relief and sports recovery.
Cupping is a great addition to other muscle and joint therapies.
Relaxation massage is a smooth, gentle, flowing style that promotes general relaxation, relieves muscular tension, plus improves circulation and range of movement. Swedish massage is probably the best-known form of relaxation massage.
2 years ago I suffered from a pinched nerve in my neck, which radiated through my shoulder and down my arm. A friend recommended Ms. Q for a medical massage. By that time I was in so much pain, I was willing to try anything. Ms. Q explained everything she was going to do and zeroed in on the pain right away. I must admit it hurt and the next day I was very sore but starting to feel better. I scheduled another appt 2 weeks later and by then I was feeling much better. From that point forward, I have been getting a massage once a month and can honestly say I have had no pain anywhere and feel more flexible. Ms. Q is very knowledgeable on the human anatomy and how everything is connected and explains it well. She has recommended at home exercises and even some vitamins. Her touch is gentle but firm and I will not go anywhere else for a good thorough massage.
Retired and Loving It
As a former NFL player and 2x Super Bowl champ, I have suffered from painful knees and aching joints for years. Within the past 2 years I had both knees replaced which has eliminated the knee pain, but due to the bad posture to compensate for the pain, my body was “jacked” up. Now I have arthritis, sciatica issues, aching joints and hamstring problems. A friend recommended Ms. Q for a medical massage and the rest is history. She has the best hands in the Las Vegas valley that perform an amazing deep tissue massage. I now see her twice a month to keep me going. She is highly recommended and you will not be disappointed...thank you Ms. Q!
"I met Quennie when she was still a student at the Northwest School of Massage where I received therapy for years. I was impressed with her skills. As a former practitioner of Shiatsu myself and a massage instructor for 8 years, I can count on one hand the gifted, dedicated and compassionate students who have potential. I hounded Quennie for her phone # and made her promise me that when she graduated I could become her client. Not only is she the best massage therapist I've ever had, she continues to improve herself through education and volunteerism. Quennie has a huge heart.

I am a 72 year old man and I have been working with Quennie for nearly two years.When we first met, I was having chronic back issues that prevented me from playing golf. I tried exercise, physical therapy, supplements, CBD oil and creams without relief.Before our first session, Quennie spent time getting to know me and my condition. She then carefully and gently explored my back and spine. She was extremely sensitive. She gently probed my back to better understand my situation. After a soothing massage that provided some immediate relief Quennie explained in great detail what she learned. It was a revelation. Her depth of understanding of the intricacies of my issues were extraordinary.I had massages from Quennie twice a month and my condition consistently improved. Within a couple of months I was back on the course, virtually pain free.Quennie is a very gentle healer. Her understanding of the body translates into her massage. She is a pleasure to work with.I recommend Quennie to anyone looking for relief from pain and long term improvement.
My wife and I have been seeing Quennie every week when we are home for about 2yrs. We each get a 2hour massage and couldn’t be happier with how they make us feel. With Quennie’s medical background she can identify specific muscle issues and focus where needed, when needed. This really separates her from most other massage therapists. We highly recommend her, your body will thank you.

“The greatest wealth is health”
As a Medical Massage Therapist, I enjoy being able to bridge the gap between holistic and western medicine while providing a safe and nurturing atmosphere in which to heal. I am always looking to integrate new treatments and therapies into my practice and believe that continued learning is important for any good Massage Therapist.
Our youngest daughter tore her ACL at age 12 while playing competitive soccer. As I helped her through her journey of rehabilitation, I was able to discover various ways to help treat her through a more holistic path of medicine and care. This inspired me to extend these practices and ideologies to others. With my love for human anatomy and physiology, I’ve been able to help my family and countless others strive towards preventative and restorative care. I’ve treated people with Sciatica, Frozen Shoulder, Rotator Cuff injury, Migraines, Plantar Fasciitis, Runners knee, and other musculoskeletal conditions. As everyone's body is unique, I will tailor a therapy treatment specifically for you.
My ultimate goal is to heal, but also to teach my patients a better approach to their own health. With that said, let's get started on this amazing journey on a healthier lifestyle.
