About Us

Richard Valdez Massage Therapy is owned and operated by Richard Valdez, L.M.T., E.S.M.T. Richard is a licensed massage therapist and is a member of the AMTA (American Massage Therapy Association) and the International Association of Equine Sports Massage Therapists. Richard's compassion and love of animals led him to become certified as an equine massage therapist. "I feel deeply honored to have received this certification from Mary Schreiber of Equissage® in Round Hill, Virginia." Mary founded Equissage® in 1989. Since the inception date, Mary has certified more than one thousand students from across the world. Mary, an L.M.T., had a basic goal, to provide the equine with the release from pain that any good massage would provide to the human body. Her reputation has earned her such honors as the official massage therapist at the Gold Cup and Dressage at Devon, Sports Illustrated, and numerous cable television documentaries.

Following his certification from Equissage®, Richard felt that he must fully understand musculature in the human as well as the equine, in order to provide the most thorough treatment and safest care. Graduating with honors from the Florida Academy of Massage in Ft. Myers, Florida provided that knowledge. After graduation he and his family relocated to the Nashville area. Richard began his full time practice in January of 1997. Richard has practiced internationally as a member of the United States Equestrian Team at the World Equestrian Games in Jerez, Spain. Additionally, has established clientele in the professional music industry and the NFL.
