I remember when I first wanted to become a massage therapist even though at the time I had no idea that such a job will ever exist. It was back in the 70's, my grandmother asked me to rub her back for her aches and pains. I gladly took the challenge however I wasn't good, that is, good enough for her. Instead she asked me to get the girl next door. I was appalled. It was just then that I wanted to prove my grandmother I could become just as good as the girl next door.
I challenged myself to learn all I could about the body and all its function on my own at a very young age. I went on to college to become a Physical Therapist. Yet, I wanted hands on not just manipulation and increase of ROM of the muscles and joints. I went back to school after my children were born. I enjoyed learning at the Palmer Institute of Massage and Bodywork, Salem, MA. Soon after I got a job which I enjoyed for the next five years, and now I have a practice of my own, at Creative Hair & Dragon Fly Spa 28-30 Hampshire street Methuen square, Methuen, MA
I love bringing mind, body and spirit unify for healing physically, mentally and internally through relaxation swedish massage, deep tissue massage, stretching, trigger points, and sport massage. And nothing brings me more joy than to treat and teach expecting mothers how to take care of themselves during pregnancy and postpartum.
I believe that when one enjoys what they do it will never feel like a job at all. I'm one of those.
When I'm not working I enjoy spending time with friends, Go on Vacation with my family, and participate as a PTA in my children's school. hide
