Gary Jones came to Arkansas one year ago because his wife got a new job. Today, the "transplanted Texan" is hopeful the business he began in Galveston, Texas, can take root in Little Rock as well.

In the same building that houses a jujitsu martial arts school, also run by Jones, East Wind Massage Therapy is ready to serve Little Rock business people who have damaged muscles or joints as well as those simply needing a massage.

At $55 for an hour-long office visit, clients can relax and have their troubles kneaded away through one of several therapy methods: trigger point, myofascial release, Swedish massage, shiatsu (acupressure), healing touch, deep tissue massage or reflexology.

For $75, Jones goes to the client.

Jones, a licensed massage therapist, develops an extensive profile of his clients before beginning any therapy. He discusses their pain, its origin and intensity, and he observes how the client stands and walks.

Jones retired from a marketing position and turned his martial arts and massage therapy hobbies into a seven-day-a-week profession. Jones has been involved in jujitsu, a self-defense program for adults, for 45 years and teaches the martial art at the Cantrell Road location.

Jones said he does not want his techniques to replace traditional medicine. In fact, he thinks massage therapy complements science to better the overall health of the patient.
