Carl Moore 2012

A little history about me, I have currently been is 48 of the 50 states, hiked over 100 miles in Yellowstone National Park, and Grand Canyon National Park. From Alabama I have done most of my traveling by working at the National Parks. Every year of my life as been an extreme change each year, so change is the only thing constant in my life.

I knew that massage therapy was my calling after seeing the effects of massage. Leaving the hospitality business and started training at the Nevada School of Massage Therapy. Schooling involved a very compressive understanding of the anatomy (16 cadaver lab hours, 157 anatomy hours) from learning all the muscles, bones, joints and how they all work together. 835 classroom hours and 120 clinical internship hours later this anatomy geek is now doing what he loves.

During a massage session I will usually end up incorporating multiple modalities like myo-facial trigger point therapy, cranial sacral therapy, reflexology and even structural depending on the situation. “It’s all about finding out the needs of the client and finding the right combination to bring about a therapeutic experience.” I will also help show you what stretches, or self-care, you can do at home to make the time between visits more productive and keeping the chronic pain at bay.

To schedule an appointment with Carl Moore LMT just call or text 406-224-3936 and see if I can help you lead a healthier life.

I have spent most of my life living the 9-5, working overtime just to make ends meet. Diagnosed early in life with scoliosis, I learned to push through the chronic pain. Spending those years doing what I thought was the right thing, the normal thing: go to work, pay your bills, and never have the time to relax and enjoy life. I worked hard at trying to be successful in life. Throughout my whole life I kept hearing “Do what you love to do, and you will be prosperous.” I never really knew what I wanted to do. I then looked into massage therapy, where I found a passion hidden inside me that not only made me happy, this was something that helps others with their pain, chronic or otherwise. I also realized I was helping myself heal from my scoliosis through the act of performing bodywork, keeping my focus on proper body mechanics.
Doing what made me happy, as well as bringing joy and a better quality of life in others. I started traveling, taking my skills on the road providing massage therapy all over the country, in remote places where massage is hard to find.
During my entire massage therapy career I donated my skills to the community of Black Rock City each year for five consecutive years. A defining moment for me would be this last event in 2014. Halfway into setup week, while showering after a long day, I walked out of the shower trailer, my foot slipped out from under me and I took a hard fall down the steps. I got up and pushed through the pain and continued to work…only to find out a couple of months later that I fractured my pelvis in that fall. I made the decision to keep continuing to push through my pain and provide massage therapy.
I have never heard of any anecdotes where someone had broken a hip and recovered fully. I have only witnessed and heard of stories where, when a hip gets broken it only goes downhill from there. I find myself now with a chronic pain that overrides my scoliosis pain and gives me less mobility.
So I ask for your help in making a pledge or donation of just $25 a month for 12 months to help support me during this difficult time frame. I realize that I only have an unknown amount of time left on this planet whether it’s 40 more years or just one.  I have decided to spend this next year of my life pursuing another passion of mine that has called to me my whole life; wildlife photography. If you are a photographer and have old camera’s and or lenses that you would like to donate or trade of services would be welcome. With your pledge of just $25 a month for 12 months, I will send you a canvas print of any one of my photos at the conclusion of this year-long commitment. Please visit this page to donate.
