Proud El Pasoan
Licensed Massage Therapist and Manual Lymphatic Drainage Certified
Irma Garcia LMT
Graduated from EPCC Valle Verde Campus
with a double Associates in Psychology and
Kinesiology. Irma then graduated with a B.A.
in Psychology with a Minor in Humanities
from UTEP. Her focus grew on the young
and the elderly, as she worked as a Caregiver
for Hospice Care after her studies, furthering
her experience as a Certified Nurse Assistant
at in-home hospice care services while
working part-time as a Registered Behavioral
Therapist for autistic children.
After surviving a critical car injury in
2017, Irma understood what worked and what
was needed to succeed using various forms
of therapy, massage quickly became of interest to her as she had found relief. Learning what muscles needed strengthening and flexibility during her rehabilitation, encouraged her to expand her knowledge while recuperating within a year and now massaging for six consecutive years. With a lot of faith, courage, and gratefulness for her loved ones and clientele, Irma is now the proud owner of R&R Rest and Recover Massage Therapy.
Most of her clients consist of government officials, post-surgery patients, the elderly, and UTEP students. She enjoys serving local charities and volunteering for organizations such as The Compassionate Friends, Desert Heaven Elderly Home Care, Nurse, and Teacher appreciation week at Del Sol Medical Center, and KTEP radio at UTEP.
Irma saw the need to reflect and take time for herself to live a pain-free life and so enjoys taking the time in listening and writing a plan of action for each client, each and every time. R&R proudly serves this beautiful city.
