About Desert Dawn Massage

Who We Are

about us and our mission
Welcome to Desert Dawn Massage!

Let me introduce myself.

I am April Dawn Aldrich.

Although from California originally, I’ve been in The Land of Enchantment since 2005.  My travels led me to New Mexico where I planned to continue my education in massage therapy.  It was my goal to receive my state license and National Certification to practice massage. This would allow me to practice massage from East coast to West coast.

I began attending New Mexico School of Natural Therapeutics in September 2010 and have been honing my skills and practicing my craft ever since.

I graduated in February 2011 and received both my state license and National Certification later that same year.

In my experience as a massage therapist. I have over 5,000 hours in massage therapy.  I practiced for six years in a chiropractors office where I was able to spend a majority of my time providing therapeutic massage to individuals who had been involved in motor vehicle accidents.

Whatever your choice, be it Swedish, Therapeutic, Deep Tissue, or one of our other custom massages – Let me share with you the art of massage.

Be good to your self and schedule today.

Pregnancy Massage

April gives the best pregnancy massages!  I always felt so much better and was actually able to sleep through the night after each visit.  She’s also knowledgeable about which areas to avoid massaging to prevent inducing early labor.  I’d recommend her services to any woman who is feeling sore or uncomfortable during pregnancy!

Therapeutic Massage

April is a very skilled massage therapist. She always seems to be in tune to my body and it’s needs, as well as my overall well being. It is always obvious that she cares. I have come to her with upper back, shoulder and neck pain, in most part due to a lot of stress in my life. Her massages have given me lasting relief –not something that I had experienced before. I highly recommend Desert Dawn Massage for both therapeutic and relaxing massages.
