My name is Maurice L. Moore and I am honored to be your Licensed Massage Therapist. I graduated from The Massage Institute of Memphis and I have a Bachelors of Business Administration from the University of Memphis. I have been specially trained in a number of sciences including: Anatomy (the scientific study of the structure of living things including their systems, organs, and tissues), Physiology (the science of the mechanical, physical, bioelectrical, and biochemical functions of humans in good health, their organs, and the cells of which they are composed), kinesiology (the scientific study of human movement), neurology (deals with the diagnosis and treatment of all categories of disease involving the central and peripheral nervous system; or equivalently, the autonomic nervous systems and the somatic nervous systems, including their coverings, blood vessels, and all effector tissue, such as muscle), and pathology (The scientific study of the nature of disease and its causes, processes, development, and consequences)
I have been performing massage since I was 8 years old. My mother was my 1st client! Fast forward 20 years later, my mother and I were having lunch at a restaurant one day and I noticed The Massage Institute of Memphis. It had been there for years, yet, this was the first time that I had ever really paid attention. Seeing the school brought back memories of me helping to relieve my mother's head, neck, and back aches through massage. I felt if I received the right training now, I could possibly help do the same things for other people professionally! Immediately after lunch, we went to the school to check it out. I enrolled as soon as I could and the rest is history...
I specialize in Therapeutic and Sports Massage with a focus on neck, shoulder, and back pain. Before the end of every session, I stretch all of my clients so you can have the mobility to continue to perform your everyday tasks after the session has ended. After my sessions, I go over maintenance exercises that you can do at any time throughout your day to prolong the effects of the massage until our next session. I care about each of my clients. I listen to your body to ensure I meet your goals for the session in a comfortable and effective manner.
I possess a nurturing touch and often, you can feel my heart, through my hands. I believe there is no greater gift than to be able to help someone with your own hands! We were created to help one another and I believe it is my destiny to follow through on this commitment.
