Massage is my profession, not a hobby.

People always ask what got me started in massage. The answer is migraines! At age 20 I began getting chronic migraines. I went to many doctors and no one knew why. They gave me medications and wanted to do a brain scan. I was so scared I told a friend and she suggested massage and chiropractic. Who doesn't like massage, right?

After massage school, I took many continuing education ...

I was a stressed-out mess when I got to Karen yesterday and she had me calm and collected by the time I left. I am in the middle of an extra-stressful exercise program now and she worked out my muscle kinks with little discomfort. I highly recommend Pain and Injury Massage to anyone.
