After graduating from The College of William & Mary in 2000, I planned to become a psychologist. I felt ill-prepared for a graduate internship with schizophrenic patients. So I put graduate school on hold. Yet I still had a yearning to help people.
As a recipient of massage therapy, I experienced the emotional, physical, and psychological benefits of receiving a massage. I decided to pursue a career in massage therapy and never looked back.
Massage therapy is not a luxury. It is an essential part of one's wellness. The best part of my job is to see a client come out of the treatment room with a sense of calm and relaxation. And I know they feel better. We all deserve to feel good.
