Robin Faux, LMT, RMTI
NM Lic # 5600

Robin has been a massage therapist since 2003 and an instructor of massage therapy since 2007. In her years of practice, Robin has learned that the stresses of life’s demands can make it challenging to schedule self-care services like massage, so she does her best to remain flexible for her clients.


Robin graduated from Sinclair Community College in Dayton, OH with an associate degree in Integrative Medical Massage Therapy. Later, she obtained her IANMT certification in neuromuscular therapy from Colorado Institute of Massage Therapy in Colorado Springs, CO. Most recently, Robin became a Certified Kinesio Taping Practitioner with the Kinesio Taping Association International.


Throughout her career, Robin has had the opportunity to work with talented bodyworkers and fascinating clients in a number of environments. Most recently, Robin’s practice has provided massage therapy at Spirit of the Mountain Spa at The Lodge Resort as well as her mobile practice, Mobile Medical Massage Therapy. However, she and Jim are excited to build a “brick-and-mortar,” practice at Cloudcroft Therapeutic Massage in the heart of Cloudcroft.


Although Robin enjoys taking workshops to learn new techniques, she loves learning about the intricacies of the human body through her interactions with her clients. She sees each massage as an opportunity to learn about the client’s life and each ache or pain as a mystery to solve through careful listening and thoughtful application of techniques. Her goal in each session is to help the client feel less pain and more relaxation than they did when they entered the massage room.
