AIM Massage serves the Albuquerque community by providing massage therapy services at our beautiful midtown area office suite and through on-site chair massage at a business location or event. At the massage health care center, we offer various massage therapy and body treatments that will ease the mind, body, and soul. \nWe are a successful, fast-growing massage therapy clinic located in the midtown area of Albuquerque, New Mexico. We have been helping patients through muscle-specific soft tissue massage therapy since 1999. Our patients seek our services for stress reduction, relaxation, recovery, sports event preparation, auto or work injuries, stiff neck, low back aches, or any other soft tissue or joint injury.\n\nThe owner, Dawn Saunders, LMT #3440 was born and raised in South Florida. In her younger years, she competed in nearly every sport, but excelled on the softball diamond. She went on to become a nine-time National Champion and two-time Collegiate First Team All-American as a softball player and coach. She earned her Bachelor of Arts in Sports Medicine-Athletic Training from Barry University in Miami Shores, Florida in 1996. She went on to pursue her graduate studies in Sports Medicine at California University of Pennsylvania, where she became captivated by coaching softball at the collegiate level. Coaching brought her to New Mexico State University the following year. \n\nIn 1998, Dawn moved to Albuquerque to continue her thirst for knowledge of the human body. She chose to attend massage therapy school at the Universal Therapeutic Massage Institute (UTMI) . While in school, she was hired at UTMI to teach Anatomy & Physiology (A & P). She passionately continues to teach A & P, medical massage, sports massage, business & ethics and various massage techniques at UTMI part-time. \n\nIn 1999, she opened her private practice in massage therapy that specialized in patients seeking relief from pain, soft tissue injuries, and stress . AIM & Massage Therapy was formed in early 2006 after seven years of developing her niche in the massage therapy field: deep tissue, sports, and injury massage.
