Louann Bounds, R.M.T.
Welcome to my Website! I am a professional registered massage therapist, neuromuscular therapist, reflexologist. If you are looking for a massage parlor, I am not for you.
Also, you will not find me in an overpriced Medi-Spa, Salon, or Spa. MY OFFICE NUMBER IS 580-678-6950. I'M LOCATED IN SUITE 305, IN THE BANCFIRST BLDG. AT 501 S.W."C" AVE. LAWTON,OK. 73501 MY OFFICE HOURS ARE BY APPOINTMENT ONLY, MONDAY + TUESDAY--THURSDAY + FRIDAY, FROM 10:00 AM TO 6:30 PM. I'M NOT AVAILABLE ON WEDNESDAYS.
ON A PERSONAL NOTE: MY WEBSITE IS DEDICATED IN LOVING MEMORY OF MY FATHER. A RETIRED FIREFIGHTER OF 31 YEARS. MY DAD TOLD MY MOTHER + THE HOSPITAL STAFF " I'M READY TO GO, BUT I WANT TO WAIT FOR LOUANN" HE HELD ON FOR 1 & 1/2 DAYS UNTIL WE GOT TO THE HOSPITAL ON CHRISTMAS DAY, HE PASSED AWAY 3 HOURS LATER IN MY ARMS. A WONDERFUL DAD WITH AN ABUNDANCE OF GUIDANCE, SUPPORT, AND LOVE. MY FATHER'S LOVE IS "TRULY A LOVE WITHOUT END,AMEN "!! TO QUOTE MY FAVORITE SONG BY RANDY TRAVIS.
A SPECIAL NOTICE: Gift Certificates & Massage Therapy packages are the best value to save ALL YEAR for your hard earned money in the Lawton area .I base this statement on the remarks and statements from the people who purchase my packages & Gift Certificates.
I respectfully offer Military,Senior, & Student discounts with proper Identification.
You can choose from several gift certificate styles, plus you have MANY OPTIONS. PLEASE NOTE: ALL GIFT CERTIFICATE SALES ARE FINAL! ( YOU WON'T RECEIVE A REFUND FROM DILLARDS OR J C PENNY....OR ANY OTHER BUSINESS HERE IN LAWTON )
You may leave you me a message if you get my voicemail, I'm with a Client, or am on a lunch break. To reserve your gift certificate, or schedule an appointment. MANY PEOPLE PREFER TO GET A MASSAGE FOR REASONS OF PAIN MANAGEMENT OR IN CONJUNCTION WITH PHYSICAL THERAPY, OR OTHER TREATMENT THEY MAY BE RECEIVING. I RECEIVE REFERRALS FROM PHYSICIANS, AS WELL AS OTHER HEALTH CARE PROVIDERS.
I feel it's important for the consumer, someone who is looking for a massage therapist to be informed & EDUCATED ABOUT MASSAGE THERAPY TRAINING & EDUCATION.
Some massage therapists have been trained as Cosmotologists, or have training as a hair stylist,
then decide to take a short course,in most cases only a year's training (or less) to become a massage therapist. Also a Massage Therapist cannot call themselves a Licensed Massage Therapist because the State of Oklahoma has not yet passed a licensing law. ALSO a Massage Therapist cannot Call themselves a "Registered Massage Therapist" unless they are a Professional member of the American Massage Therapy Association. And there are Massage Therapists who are in some hair salons in Lawton, that are calliing themselves "Registered" The American Massage Therapy Association requires more hours, more training, and more continuing education than the AMBP does. This Organization only requires 100 hours of training to be accepted. Please note: Businesses advertising as "MASSAGE AND SPA" should raise a RED FLAG.
Massage Colleges that have been accredited by the Commision of Massage Therapy Accreditation and offer ONLY courses to train students to become Massage Therapists.
(different techniques) are MOST MASSAGE COLLEGES TAKE OVER A YEAR TO COMPLETE, THIS INCLUDES TEACHING MANY TYPES OF TECHNIQUES.to complete and graduate. The difference is the accredidation, the experiance of the staff usually from Medical background (Nurses, D.O, PHD, Massage instructors who own their own practices) TRADE SCHOOLS TEACH OTHER CAREERS, SUCH AS L.P.N. TRAINING, DENTAL ASSISTANT, PHEBLOTOMY COURSES....ETC....
I provide therapeutic, non-sexual massage therapy in a nurturing, calming, serene enviroment that is my private practice.
My training includes Nursing School, Massage training from 3 accredited massage therapy colleges. All of them are accredited by the Comission on massage therapy accredited.
I have been a Massage Therapist for 30+ years.
I am required to maintain continuing education.
I do not get my continuing education from websites, I attend
courses approved by the American Massage Therapy Association.
My office hours are by appointment only, 10:00 am to 6:30 pm
Tuesday thru Friday. I'm not available on Mondays.
I am a member of the Better Business Bureau.
