    I have been dreaming of becoming a massage therapist for many years.

    Once I started my journey to obtain my license, I knew it was the perfect fit for me. Giving massage is just as therapeutic for me as it is for any receiver of massage. One of my brothers told me that I looked so peaceful and loving when I was giving one of our sisters a shoulder massage. This was one of many moments that I realized I had made the right choice to get my massage therapist’s license.

    Massage is a way to help your body relax, repair, and be healthy!
