When your body talks - Healing hands listen!

  It was two weeks before moving to the DFW, I get into a car accident. A friend of mine was telling me about how much a massage would help me with my aches and pain. I briefly disregarded the conversation but, shortly after I felt pain in my arm and reconsidered by taking her advice. When my massage session was over I felt my pain dissipate with some relief. Within a week after my arrival to the Dallas area, massage kept coming to mind so I started my search for a place and lo and behold ATI...

  It was two weeks before moving to the DFW, I get into a car accident. A friend of mine was telling me about how much a massage would help me with my aches and pain. I briefly disregarded the conversation but, shortly after I felt pain in my arm and reconsidered by taking her advice. When my massage session was over I felt my pain dissipate with some relief. Within a week after my arrival to the Dallas area, massage kept coming to mind so I started my search for a place and lo and behold ATI. I received a massage from students and didn't know ATI was apart of a massage school. Before I left from the school I enrolled and 6 months later became a Licensed Massage Therapist. 
   Never one to grow complacent, I wanted to go to the next level: the next logical step was to complete my licensure  to become a Licensed Massage Therapist Instructor, which I did.  As an Instructor for the past four years which, was very rewarding. I was able to see students engaged, excited, and eager to learn what I would teach next. Cortiva Institute taught me that I wasn't just teaching I also helped students change their lives, in return changed my own.   
    Thru out the years I have focused on my specialties such as,  medical massage, care and prevention of athletic injuries, orthopedic evaluation and cranio sacral therapy just to name a few . I have earned a BS degree in Kinesiology with over 10 years in Athletic Training and over 8 years of massage. With my Experience I hope to bring a healing that is more than skin deep here at Body Mechanixs & Well-being. "When your body talks- Healing hands listen!"
