Massage is a passion for me, after a serious car accident in 2000 left me in the hospital for one month, I endured chronic pain through out my body. After the doctors, pills, physical therapy, surgeries, I was still battling pain issues.
I found massage. It significantly reduced my pain, and lessened the stress that I was experiencing. After 10 years of receiving massages, I had a weird dream one night, that caused me to call massage school, and sign up for night classes by the end of the week. In my dream I was told it was, "Too late, you can never take night class!" That's all I needed.
I graduated from school in 2010 with a 3.8 gpa. Went out into the massage world, and worked a few places, then decided I wanted to live the dream and work for myself.
