Kirk Sugars, LMT #6331



Kirk Sugars has been practicing massage therapy in Albuquerque since 2009. A native of the San Francisco Bay Area, Kirk has lived in Albuquerque since 1992. After a 15-year career managing information technology for a regional bank he decided to make a major shift to allow more time for his many passions: chess, music, philosophy, Tai Chi Chuan, among others. He entered Crystal Mountain School of Therapeutic Massage in 2008.

While Kirk’s style of massage therapy is integrative and intuitive, clients often comment on the precision with which he addresses specific muscles and complaints. Working with the client to develop a treatment plan that addresses their goals and assures their comfort, each session will be unique. Primary modalities are “deep” Swedish, Neuromuscular Technique (to address trigger points and knots), deep tissue work to mobilize fascia and restore natural “at rest” positioning of soft tissues. Some clients come to Kirk specifically for work on their feet. “While I rely on doctors to make diagnoses, I am surprised at how often symptoms that present as carpal tunnel, plantar fasciitis, sciatica or peripheral neuropathy can be  alleviated by addressing soft tissue impairment of the free movement of nerves and muscles,” Kirk says. “My skill with ‘energy’ flow — particularly Tai Chi and Chi Kung, as well as Reiki — infuses all my work with warmth.” Kirk has been a professional member of The American Massage Therapy Association since 2009.

Swedish, Neuromuscular, Deep Tissue, Reflexology, Cranial/Sacral, Reiki:
30 mins – $45
60 mins – $80
90 mins – $110

120 mins – $140

For simplicity, all fees include tax and “tip.” He is happy to discuss concerns and goals prior to the first appointment.

Regular Hours:
Tuesday, Thursday, Friday – afternoon/evening by appointment
Saturday & Sundays – by appointment
