In everyone's life, at some time, our inner fire goes out. It then bursts into flames by an encounter with another human being. We should all be thankful for those people who rekindled the inner spirit. - Albert Schweitzer

Hello Everyone, 

It's always been hard for me to talk about myself. I really don't feel putting yourself into words really tells people enough about you. Actions are where I really get to know someone. I'll start with what I know; I'm an honest person. I really try to be very upfront but, sometimes I do find that if I'm not more blunt with people, the information I give them tends to go in one ear and out the other. I'm not a sensitive person. There's not much I haven't heard in terms of any ...

Hello Everyone, 

It's always been hard for me to talk about myself. I really don't feel putting yourself into words really tells people enough about you. Actions are where I really get to know someone. I'll start with what I know; I'm an honest person. I really try to be very upfront but, sometimes I do find that if I'm not more blunt with people, the information I give them tends to go in one ear and out the other. I'm not a sensitive person. There's not much I haven't heard in terms of any kind of speech. I've really liked being the guy where no matter what, you can come to vent to me about anything; Except politics. I don't care for it, it gives me a headache, leave with your friends and family who care about it. 
I got into massage for the pure and simple fact that I genuinely care about making people feel like they can take some time away from the stresses of their own mundane lives and not want to take out their frustrations on the next person that makes that fuse just a bit shorter. I graduated from massage school in May of 2016 and have enjoyed this job much more than I thought I would. My instructors, influences, and peers have all been amazing to be around and have been great examples for me. I've been sharpening my skills at Massage Envy since I graduated. I've met many great people there and feel like I'm not getting enough time with them as I'd like. This is why I needed to start building outside of there. I love taking my time with an issue and understanding why the person is in pain and get it worked out. I don't like the "Get them in and get them out" approach. 
I love to learn more about the body and that's what drove me to do more therapeutic massage than relaxation massage. It's an actual treatment than a band-aid treatment you'll feel shortly after you leave. I personally love when I feel a difference rather than leave feeling no change in anything. 
I have a very physical background, which also gave me a feeling like massage was the right course for me. I've been enlisted in the military since 2007, I deployed to Iraq in 2010 as a truck driver, and I'm still currently enlisted. This gave me a really good understanding of all sorts of injuries, as well as seeing how people don't take care of themselves or aren't able to get the rest they need. I've also studied martial arts since I was 5 as well as wrestling. I understand when people talk about how sore or hurt they are. I can say that I'm actually one of the few people that actually know what pains you're going through. Most likely, I've been there myself. I also can say that I do know what pushing your body to its limit feels like. The training I went through and did to myself was very grueling and very unpleasant but, it did open my eyes to struggles and pain that I can say whole heartedly I understand. 
Well I hope you weren't too bored reading this but, this is kind of me in a nutshell for massage. I really do hope that you book with me and get a massage you probably have been shorted on from other cookie cutter therapists. Hope you have a great day!
