How long have you been a licensed massage therapist?
Almost 11 years.
How many hours of training do you have?
Why did you choose massage therapy as your career?
I didn’t receive my first masasge until I was in my early 20’s. I was unhappy with the office job I was working at and was looking for something else but didn’t know what. Immediately after that massage my first thought was “I love this, I could do this.” I did some research, found a school, and went.
Where did you go to school for massage?
I attended Lauterstein-Conway Massage School.
How do you describe your massage/work to others?
My work is typically deep and relaxing at the same time. People fall asleep all the time during my deep tissue massage sessions.
What are some examples of Continuing Education you are interested in and why?
CEU’s that interest me are typically injury related, nutrition related, sports related, really anything therapeutic focused.
How has receiving massage affected you personally?
Getting my first massage is what made me choose to be a therapist, that’s about as personal as it gets I think.
What do you do to stay healthy?
To stay healthy I get massage when I can, get adjusted every week, and train and coach crossfit 5 days a week
What do you like about working at Myo Massage?
I like everything about Myo, all the staff are great, the owners actually care about the staff and clients, it’s a very laid back and professional environment.
