Why did you choose massage as a career?
I didn’t choose it, it chose me!
What do you enjoy about being an RMT?
Massage therapy is a non-invasive, drug-free modality with a very high rate of success in treating symptoms/conditions. And also, I have a nerd-like fascination with how the body works!
What self-care practices do you use to keep fit and healthy for your career?
STRETCHING! Every day. Eating well, daily walks, resting when I need, and of course monthly massages!
What do you feel sets you apart as a massage therapist?
I firmly believe in working with a client to find the root cause of the problem and treat that, not just the symptom or symptoms.
What are you most proud of in your career so far?
That I followed a passion, something I truly believed in, and succeeded in making a career out of that.
