My career as a massage therapist began after having injured my back! At the time I was attending Esthetics school, but due to my injury I had to investigate a change of career. Most of my esthetics clients at the school had planted the seed for me to look into becoming a massage therapist. They would ask if I were a massage therapist and my answer was always, “no,” so their answer was always, “…well you should be one!”
So, I attended the Southwest Institute of Healing Arts, and behold…I absolutely loved it. In fact, it will be three years soon that I have been a licensed therapist and I am still happy with my choice of career. At this point on my journey, I know many massage techniques like Mayo-facial, Myotherapy, the 7-step release system, Deep Tissue, Swedish, Cranial Sacral, Unwinding, and I also offer energetic lower spine & leg release. What I like to do for my clients is offer a combination of all my modalities into one customized massage. Some clients even allow me to include aromatherapy and guided imagery in their sessions to help to assist them into a better relaxation state.
For all sessions, I talk with the client first and find out what they are experiencing in their bodies. Through communication I discover what they would like to work on during the session. I find it helps a client’s session when we start them off with some deep breathing, essential oils (if no allergies), a little guided imaginary, and then usually their tension simmers away and allows the massage to do it’s magic. It is also most helpful when a client communicates their pressure tolerance on a 1-10 scale for me to know their needs!
As anyone can see I am motivated. Helping people is what inspires me, because with massage I can help them get closer to living their best life! I want my clients to feel safe and relaxed, address the tension or aches they might be expressing, and finally aid them in releasing that tension. My goal is to build long standing and growing client relationships with them so they can maintain long happy healthy lives with receiving massage.
