Meet Wes

In February 2015, Wes joined the University of Texas at Arlington as the licensed massage therapist. Since that time, over 800 individuals have seen him for table massage and several hundred more have participated in our chair massage events. Even after they have graduated, many of his clients continue to return to the Maverick Activities Center for a therapeutic massage. Whether you want to manage your pain, improve your sports performance, overcome an injury, or just need to relax from everyday pressures, massage is beneficial for almost everyone.
