About Me

Hi,

My Name is Doctor Curt McEntire. I am the Owner and Chief Therapist at Reno Orthopedic Massage.

I am a Marin County, California native and moved to Reno with my wife and three children in 2001. In my leisure time I enjoy being creative in the kitchen, scenic bike rides, writing, walking my dog “Jessie” with my wife and sometimes my daughter, hiking, fishing, camping and cheering my boys on at their games.
