Certified Massage Therapist & Certified Medical Massage Therapist located in Santa Monica, CA

About Tina Hope Distad, CMT, MMT

After a 12-year career in the visual arts, along with my own personal physical and mind-body challenges, my passion for massage led me to Touch Therapy Institute of Clinical Massage. Twenty-one years ago, I became a Certified Massage Therapist. I continued my education, studying multiple modalities, and discovered a special interest in lymphatic function through lymphatic drainage, injury prevention and injury/post-surgical recovery. I take pride in seeing improvements in one’s overall well-being and day-to-day life. As a Certified Medical Massage Therapist and Corrective Exercise Coach, I believe it is important to help clients with awareness of posture and body mechanics. I find that massage is a vital component to assist the client in this process.

My approach to treatment always begins with a comprehensive client assessment to determine specific needs. From there, I design a treatment plan to focus on the acute — or chronic — area of concern and work intuitively to locate and treat residual effects of body compensation as a result of these challenges or injuries. I specialize in a range of treatment modalities, including Medical Massage, Myofascial Trigger Point, Structural Release, Deep Tissue, Lymphatic Drainage and Therapeutic Massage. While simultaneously addressing physical concerns, I am skilled at facilitating healing of the mind-body connection to help create an overall sense of wellbeing for my clients.

I am experienced in working with clients and medical professionals who seek massage therapy as a way to help resolve or manage current challenges and/or maintenance goals.

I am very passionate about helping people with self care and I look forward to working with you to help you achieve your wellness goals.
