Massage Albuquerque

Athletic Touch Therapeutic Massage, founded in 1994 by Ruth Zimmerman Cummings, is a professional massage office located in beautiful Albuquerque, New Mexico. where Ruth provides massage therapy and fitness training for clients by appointment. 


"Hi!  This is Ruth Cummings. Thanks for visiting my website about Massage in Albuquerque. I've tried to answer as many questions about massage as I can on this website, but you are welcome to email me or call/text me (505-332-9292) with any questions you may have or with appointment requests. 


My specialty is Sports Massage, but I enjoy helping athletes and non-athletes of all ages with massage and stretching. You can come in with an injury, just to relax or relieve stress, to relieve pain, or for preventative maintenance during your daily life or during specific athletic training.  


My goal is to be a partner in your daily journey for an active, healthy and balanced life with massage therapy and stretching.  The plan I suggest is to come in for an initial massage appointment, then we can make a plan to get you back to what you like to do.


The perfect massage situatuion: Come in for your initial massage appointment, then we set up 3 sessions, each 1 week apart.  You will have homework stretches and foam rolling, breathing and rest to do during the week. Then we meet again 3 weeks in a row.  If you still have pain, we continue once/week for 1-3 more weeks, then we spread out the appointments, trying to get your body to be pain-free for 7 days, 10 days, 14 days, 30 days.


Then you don't see me until you need me, or for a maintance massage.  


This is the best massage plan I have experienced for relieving pain.  I will repeat it on several pages on this website and on the blog.  


Please call me with any massage related questions or for chronic pain issues that need some creative thinking."
