Chi Massage is one of Tucson’s leading independent massage therapist, specializing in ancient, proven massage techniques from Asia and Europe. Our unique tailored approach to improving our client’s health and well-being sets us apart, and allows us to maximize the benefits of the massage healing process.
Massage therapy is not new, although its adoption in western culture has lagged behind eastern practice. Fortunately more people now are taking advantage of the incredible therapeutic benefits of massage techniques that have been taught and passed down for many generations. The owner of Chi Massage, Tim Darmetko, is a certified massage therapist who has studied and trained with many of the most respected and learned practitioners of this science. We can put our wealth of knowledge and experience to work for you, quickly and safely.
For newcomers to massage therapy, the process, different techniques, and even the names may be a bit overwhelming. What are the different forms of massage, how do they differ, and which one is right for me? Chi Massage can easily explain to you the different types of massage therapy, to simplify the concepts, and to ensure you understand not only the methods, but also how they can be used and combined for best results.
It’s about you: at Chi Massage, we have one goal—improving your wellness. Whether you have a recent joint or muscle pain, perhaps a sports injury, a chronic pain that just won’t go away, or simply too much tension and stress that begs for relief, we can help. We pride ourselves in our custom approach to each patient. No “one shoe fits all.” We listen, we ask questions, and then we choose the right therapeutic approach. In particular, we have specific expertise in combining different forms of massage for maximum effect. Our experience shows us that often times, combining two or more techniques can have a compounded, greater effectiveness than any single approach. And the choice and application of techniques can change over time as our patients respond and improve. There are no age limitations; our clients range from infants to the elderly.
Your experience at Chi Massage will be warm, inviting, and stress free. The home environment is relaxing, not clinical, and it contributes to the positive outcomes from the therapy you will receive. Please give us a call to set up your appointment.

Tim Darmetko has been working with and instructing me to improve my health and habits. He mainly does CranioSacral therapy for me but performs other massage techniques when necessary. Since Tim has been working with me my posture, diet, circulation and attitude have all improved. I am aware of healthier ways to take care of myself and share these practices with others. Tim encourages me share what I learn with my community. I am a religious sister living with about 15 other sisters.
Tim is concerned about the whole person in all aspects. He is aware that we are intricately woven and that one part of us affects our whole being. He is enthusiastic about seeing other people be healthy beings who can live their life to its fullest. He stresses that deep breathing, healthy food, meditation (or prayer in some form), and exercise (movement such as in yoga or tai chi), are the basics to maintaining one’s health.
Tim expects us, his clients, to follow through with what we learn to continue progressing so we can maintain our own health. He is willing to recommend a variety of practical ways to help with nutritional and holistic methods. He is also willing to suggest other health professionals when necessary and encourages us to seek quality methods and practices.
Tim is very knowledgeable in many health-related aspects because he believes in researching methods and credentials to support what he recommends. Tim cares about his clients welling-being and makes every effort to support us in our effort toward healing.
