I’ve been a massage therapist for over a decade. Providing a space where a person can relax and just be is important to me. No judgment. No expectations. My clients can talk or completely enjoy some downtime. I have learned that stress can manifest in many ways… Headaches, muscle tension, neck pain and what we all want is some relief. We may not be able to get rid of stress, but my job in relieving that pain is what makes being a massage therapist so phenomenal. I truly enjoy working as a team to see my clients walk out feeling better, lighter, and less affected by the stress in their life. So many of us can be affected by pain, whether acute or chronic, and the search can sometimes seem endless for a resolution. Being part of that answer is what keeps being a massage therapist from becoming just a job for me.
Hi, my name is Terry and I'd like to tell you about my personal experience with massage therapy. In 2006, I began my journey towards becoming a massage therapist. Once we got to the portion of the curriculum where I was receiving as well as giving massages, I realized the incredible impact frequent massage had on my body, mind and spirit. I learned to relax more and focus better. It improved my sleep quality, which gave me more energy and reduced my fatigue. I had issues with pain in my shoulders after years of heavy lifting. I was taught how to help relieve those trigger points while experiencing it first- hand. I thought "I want to do this for everyone." Now I embrace the fact that not only do I help people relax and relieve stress but I have an impact on easing their pain and improving their overall health. Unfortunately, people often consider massage as a luxury item. NOT SO! It is the most fundamental basis of optimal health. Massage has the power to improve your physical being, your personal image and your spiritual outlook.
