Kathleen Mazy, Licensed Massage Therapist, Licensed Massage Therapy Instructor, Founder, School Director

Kathleen attended the University of Texas in Austin after high school and graduated with a Bachelor of Science degree in Education.  After marrying Brandon they decided to embark on a new journey together to help others.  After meeting the standard state requirements with honors, Kathleen decided to expand her education by taking additional course work in Trigger Point Therapy and Spa Services.  This in turn made her a marketable asset when opening her day spa, Fancy’s Day Spa, in 2007.  Soon after opening, Brandon and Kathleen were inundated with clients, even having clients drive from all over Texas just to see them.  Their availability became very limited as many clients booked recurring appointments filling up their schedule months in advance.  They realized the need for additional quality Massage Therapists in the area which lead to the creation of Texas Massage Academy.

Kathleen and Brandon refined their technique for massage.  This is the approach to massage that all employees of Fancy’s Day Spa use to ensure the best assessment of clients, techniques for client satisfaction, and to lessen the likelihood of injury to the massage therapist.

Kathleen teaches Massage Technique, Health & Hygiene, Anatomy, Physiology, Kinesiology, Hydrotherapy, Business Practices & Professional Ethics, and Pathology.  She also helps to supervise and support the Clinical Internship.
