Who We Are


Texas Massage Academy came about due to the lack of skilled therapists in the area, when we were looking to staff our spa.

Brandon and his wife, Kathleen "Fancy", opened a quaint spa in Brownwood, Texas many years ago, in 2007! Due to the high demand of our services we needed more massage therapists to help accommodate our client load and requests. Opening our massage school was our logical next option! So, we did it, and years later we are still going strong!

Our Team

Instructor Kathleen Mazy

Kathleen Mazy

Co-Owner - Dean of Admissions

Kathleen attended the University of Texas in Austin after high school and graduated with a Bachelor of Science in Education. After marrying Brandon, they decided to embark on a new journey together to help others. After meeting the standard state requirements with honors, Kathleen decided to extend her education by taking additional course work in Trigger Point Therapy and Spa Services. This in turn made her a marketable asset when opening her day spa, Fancy’s Day Spa, in 2007. Soon after opening, Brandon and Kathleen were inundated with clients, even having clients drive from all over Texas just to see them. Their availability became very limited, as many clients booked recurring appointments filling up their schedule months in advance. They realized the need for additional quality Massage Therapists in the area which led to the creation of Texas Massage Academy.

Instructor Brandon Mazy

Brandon Mazy

Co-Owner - Marketing Director

Brandon spent many years in the corporate environment after graduating from the Art Institute of Dallas. While in the media field, Brandon gained extensive knowledge of marketing, graphics, programming and computer-based training. This will aid in the visual and interactive elements within the classroom training to create a more engaging learning environment. While attending massage school, Brandon found his niche in problem solving and looking at massage not just from a therapeutic standpoint, but from a wellness standpoint as well, focusing on the pre-assessment. Daily, Brandon not only works with severe pain management cases, but also educates his clients about self-awareness. Brandon teaches Massage Technique, Health & Hygiene, Anatomy, Physiology, Kinesiology Hydrotherapy, Business Practices & Professional Ethics, and Pathology. He also helps to supervise and support the Clinical Internship.

Lana Riley

Instructor -

Lana comes to us from Jonesboro, Tx., where she moved to in 2011 from Arlington, TX. She and her husband, Billy, have been married for 29 years and are the parents of 6 amazing kids and 2 precious grandchildren. At the age of 42, working in a dead end job and feeling miserable, Lana decided to make a career change. She was actually looking into massage for her daughter who would be graduating soon, when she realized she was the one interested in massage and how to help people cope with their pain. She started our weekend class in July of 2017 and graduated top of her class, with perfect attendance (4 kids in school, a full time (6 different job titles) job), and pregnant in September of 2018. After having her 6th child, she started her own Massage business in Gatesville, Tx in March 2019 and expanded to Stephenville, Tx in October 2019. Her passion for massage and people has led her to pursue her Massage Instructor Certification in order to pursue her love of teaching and massage at our school, Texas Massage Academy, here in Brownwood. She will be on the floor massaging at Fancy's as her schedule allows. (She is extremely excited to be a part of the TMA/Fancy's family!)
