Robert Costa, a graduate of the New Mexico School of Natural Therapeutics, has been practicing full-time in NM for twelve years. He’s worked primarily in medical massage environments including wellness centers; a physician’s pain management practice; and at an occupational health clinic and nearby offices, treating a major technology manufacturer’s employees and their family members. He’s worked with clients who’ve suffered from occupational and sports injuries, migraines, sciatica, adhesive capsulitis (“frozen shoulder”) and other rotator cuff injuries, FMS/CFS, cerebral palsy, stroke, and a host of other serious medical conditions.
