A little bit about me.
I graduated from The Onondaga School of Therapeutic Massage in December 2009. I have been trained in Swedish massage, Shiatsu, Sports massage, Chair massage and Deep tissue, Treatments and Pregnancy massage. I have continued my education with learning hot stone massage, obtaining Reiki Master certificationi and several types of energy work. Newly added is crystal healing and aromatherapy to my services. The interest in massage has opened up so many opportunities. I became curious about massage 8 years ago, but the only school close to me was the Onondaga School of Therapeutic Massage in Syracuse. I had never had a massage, but I was looking for a career in a holistic setting, helping people. Massage just kind of called me so to speak. I put it on the back burner because Syracuse was too far and I had young sons that I was putting through Catholic schools. When my sons had all graduated, I decided to go back to school. I thought for what though? I have been working in a factory for over 14 yrs and didn't really want an office job, so what could I be? A massage therapist again came into my mind. So I thought, it has been years so look in the phone book to see if there was a school here now. Yes! Onondaga School of Therapeutic Massage was now in Rochester. One of the requirements to attend the school was to get a massage. So that was my first massage. At first I thought, well it was okay, I was kind of disappointed with it. When I woke up the next morning, after 14 yrs of coping with daily pain from chronic tendonosis as a result of my assembly job, the pain was gone. I then knew that massage was what I was looking for in providing help to others. In my spare time I like to read, hike, and walk on the beach. I am an avid animal lover and have 3 cats. I enjoy being out in nature and experiencing the beauty of it. Thank you for taking the time to read a little bit about me.
