How did you get started?
I got into this field in 2006, as a college sophmore, trying to figure out what I wanted to do with my life. Three weeks into the Massage Therapy program, I completely fell in love with it and have never looked back. After years of working for others, I decided 2012 that it was time to go out on my own and open my own business. What started out as a solo gig, renting space from a local law office, has turned into a small operation, with four Therapists and our very own store front.
What types of customers have you worked with?
We have worked with all types of clients. Everyone from the stressed out parent who is seeking a 1 hour vacation, to clients such as Veterans and Motor Vehicle Accident patients who are seeking pain management. No two clients are alike and we have worked with them all!
Describe a recent event you are fond of.
Not too long ago, a gentleman came to me seeking pain relief for his back, after a botched surgery, following a Motor Vehicle Accident. He had been walking with a cane for some time and was unable to stand completely upright. After his first session, he was standing much straighter, felt better and exclaimed that he was "ready to ditch the cane". I chuckled and advised against "ditching the cane" until further notice but, the fact that he was feeling that much better, really made me feel great.
What advice would you give a customer looking to hire a professional in your area of expertise?
Hire a Therapist based on your specific needs. Find out what their training and experience is. If you need more Therapeutic or Medically-Based work, make sure the Therapist has experience with that. There is nothing worse than needing specific, targeted work and receiving a generalized, relaxation massage.
What questions should customers think through before talking to professionals about their needs?
Do some research on Massage Schools in the area. Read the reviews for both the School and the Therapist, if you can find them. Ask the Therapist where they went to school and how long they have been practicing.
Ask the Therapist which modalities they are trained in. For example, Swedish Massage is your typical Relaxation Massage. If a Therapist says they are trained in Deep Tissue Massage, ask them specifically which Deep Tissue modalities they're trained in. Trigger point, neuromusular therapy, and myofascial release, to name a few, are all considered "Deep Tissue" and are more medically-based and designed to target specific issues. Some Therapists, consider Swedish Massage techniques applied with more pressure to be "Deep Tissue". So, depending on what yours needs are, it is important to ask the Therapist what they have experience with.
