In October of 2006 a dream was finally becoming real and for the next 2 years the education to become a Massage Therapist at The Colorado School of Healing Arts was extensive, fun, and healing in mind, body and spirit.
Ever since I can remember I have always loved massage, even though my experience with it was very limited. Maybe it was just the connection and the feeling that I was helping another person, mostly my parents, with a shoulder rub, or vice versa.
It was not until I was in the Army and stationed in Germany in 2002 that I finally knew I wanted to be a Massage Therapist. When I got out of the Army in August of 2006 my first mission was to find the perfect school and sign up.
I graduated in December 2007 at the top of my class as a CMT (Certified Massage Therapist) with a Certificate of 700 hours. April 2008 I began my AOS (associates of occupational studies) for continued education and three specific specialties. These specialties are Lymphatic Drainage, Neuromuscular Massage and Spa Arts and Sciences, also certified in Prenatal Massage, all completed September 2009.
My goal as a Massage Therapist is to help as many people as possible with injuries, muscular dysfunction, pain and disease, and education on healthy and natural living. My primary field is medical massage but I think we all need to be pampered as well so the Spa certification has many health benefits on its own.
Another dream yet realized when I graduated in November 2014 Summa Cum Laude from Kaplan University with a Bachelors Degree in Nutrition Science. Now I can effectively help people with their health from the inside out. By taking control of our health we are able to prevent disease, heal our bodies from disease and dysfunction and know that being sick is not a lifestyle but a choice. I love to educate people and to create a strong relationship of trust. I could not have done any of this without God, He is my rock through it all.
