Therapist CVs



My name is Maxine Nguyen.  Firstly, I am board-certified (by NCBTMB), Maryland-licensed massage therapist (LMT), trained in both Western and Eastern bodywork modalities including Swedish, Deep Tissue, Myofascial Release, Traditional Thai Massage, and Shiatsu.  Besides doing Swedish and Deep Tissue massages on healthy/active clients, I also work with post-surgical clients to relieve edema through the use of lymph drainage techniques, lighten/remove scars, and manage bodily pain/tension resulting from certain medical conditions.  Secondly, I am a Maryland-licensed esthetician, offering skincare consultations, facials, peels, waxing, and make-up application services.  Thirdly, I am a Maryland-licensed hair professional who can provide beauty services including haircuts, coloring, permanents, to men, women, and children.  See my service menus to learn more.

My background is in public and corporate accounting and finance, and information systems implementation and consulting.  However, my first love is with the beauty, health, and wellness industry that aims to enhance a person’s self-esteem so they can live a happier and healthier life.  I offer a wide range of services to my clients and educate them on the latest health and beauty trends.  It’s fun to help clients make wiser decisions to improve their overall wellness and beauty.  My clients’ satisfaction in the way they look and feel after having a service with me gives me a real sense of accomplishment.  I am grateful that through this work, I can give back to the world the blessings bestowed on me and my family.
