Licensed Massage Therapist and Chief Thought Provoker

MA87543

I believe the sense of touch is missing from a lot of our lives today. Not many will argue that we live in a highly-technical, fast-paced, human-touch-deprived culture. I see massage therapy as a natural healing method: a basic need for health. When compared to a visit to the doctor, an appointment with a massage therapist is much longer. An experience with a massage therapist is also more personal and emotional, and people look forward to their message therapy appointments.

My friends and family often ask: “Why did you choose massage therapy as a profession?”

There is something about massage therapy that transcends a physical sensation of touch. I have found massage therapy not only brings a feeling of relaxation and happiness to me as a client, but also seems to bring a sense of joy to the massage therapists I have worked with in the past. 

Before becoming a Licensed Massage Therapist (LMT), I worked in the hospitality industry where I always tried to find a win-win situation for my company, our employees, and the customers we collectively served. Success in that field was often a battle between corporate well-being and customer well-being, with employees caught in the middle. Simply put, I wanted to move past that.

To some, it may look like I started over. But in reality, I am continuing the journey by building on what I have already learned, and applying it differently.

 

So why did I become an LMT?

The simple answer is... Because it works, it encourages me, and it restores balance to the world. When I get a good massage, I am a changed man. I get off the table and float on a cloud for days. It wakes me up; however, at the same time I sleep better that night. It creates a sense of well-being and for a while, it brings the world into focus.
