About Luata

Luata Bray

I see myself as a healthcare professional specializing in massage therapy. I enjoy designing a custom individualized plan of care and working with other medical professionals with a patientís well being as my ultimate goal. Being a Massage Therapist has been my lifeís work and participating within the health care industry has been an honor and a privilege.

I was born and raised in the state of Oregon. I received training early in my life, and later attended 2 different massage programs before licensure was mandated.

After moving to the State of Washington in 1988, I later enrolled in The Seattle Massage School. In 1992 I received my State of Washington Massage Practitioner License.

The human body is a huge fascination for me, and I am a life long learner. I have spent over 42 years of my life involved with massage, and love studying the art and science of itís benefits. I enjoy enrolling in continued education classes to enhance my skills and to better understand the human body.

I am a member of the American Massage Therapy Association. Attending their functions keep me current and educate me with the many changes made in the industry of health care. I support the efforts of The Massage Therapy Research Foundation and I am fascinated by the advancement of recent research which validates with evidence that massage therapy is effective in resolving soft tissue dysfunction. I am also interested in the International Fascia Research Congress and the research they help promote.

I received a certificate in Orthopedic Massage from Nationally renowned Whitney Lowe, L.M.T. in 2000. His study enhanced my practice in working with orthopedic issues. I have studied off and on over the past 26 years with Paul St. John, L.M.T. and his work with neuromuscular therapy techniques and postural assessment. I continue to be curious and fascinated with the structure and the fascia of the human body. Many wonderful instructors are spread throughout the world and I eagerly pursue what they have to offer. I frequently attend conventions, seminars and research conferences to keep current with all the many discoveries in the science of massage therapy.

This is an exciting time to be a massage therapist specializing in massage intervention.
