Massage doesn't have to hurt

I come from a 20 year career as an accountant.  I know the pain of sitting 12 hours a day.  I know the feeling of being stressed out all the time; I learned the hard way about the tolls this takes on your body.  Diagnosed with Sciatica and told; "you will never sit more than 6 hours a day again", I decided to become a massage therapist.

I come from a 20 year career as an accountant.  I know the pain of sitting 12 hours a day.  I know the feeling of being stressed out all the time; I learned the hard way about the tolls this takes on your body.  Diagnosed with Sciatica and told; "you will never sit more than 6 hours a day again", I decided to become a massage therapist. I took a class 3 years ago on Lymphatic drainage massage and went back to the same school to complete my training.  I learned how to help my sciatica when it acts up and how to prevent it from acting up.  I use Qi Gong to help stretch and even teach it to my clients.  I do lymphatic massage and even when doing a relaxation massage or a "get the kinks out" massage I stay in the progression of  lymph drainage.  What is lymph drainage?  Glad you asked.  It is a light touch massage that is there to move fluid through the body.  As we age we start noticing things may swell a little or as we stress our immune system may not be what it should.  Lymph drainage massage helps in all of this.  I do a relaxation massage (basically lymph drainage with pressure).  I do sports massage, being an athlete in school I know about those injuries.  Being a cross fit person at one time; I know about those muscle tear down and build ups, going to the gym 4 times a week I know about those sore achy muscles.  I never want my clients to say; "she hurt me and I wont return", so I use some different mind over matter techniques that I teach to each of my clients so we can work together to feel good again.  I love to breathe and I ask my clients to breathe.  Not like that I mean BRRREEEAAATTTHHHEEE
