From the classrooms of Southwest Institute of Healing Arts to clinical settings around the southwest, massage therapist J. Omar Ramos has traveled far for the sake of his discipline. However, when he wasn't soothing cranky muscles with numerous massage modalities, he was helping athletes recover from workouts at area sports clubs and spas. This diverse experience helped him devise his own massage style; called Mixed Muscle Assistance Therapy (or MMA-Therapy for short), Omar's system helps muscles stay fit through a combination of relaxation and targeted pressure. Now operating out of Ramon Bacaui Salon & Medspa, Omar also primes clients for the playing fields of life with treatments including cryotherapy, hydrotherapy, Thai massage, and more.
