My love of massage started when I was five. My 4 older brothers would pay me .50 each Friday to massage their feet.(That's before I learned about Seabreeze or a clothes pin). Then when I was 11 my oldest brother was diagnosed with lung cancer and i would rub him just by what i felt he needed. He unfortuately lost his battle less than 2 years later. I never knew people did massage for a living until I learned that Bob Hope had a massage therapist that worked on him.
In high school my boyfriend,now husband played football and was on the track team.
I would work on him and his friends. Never thought i would use biology.
But in 1993 after graduating from King's College in Charlotte with a certificate in Retail Merchandising and a career stuggle. A dear friend said if you would do it for free why not get paid to do it. So in 1995 I started my professional training at The Whole You School of Massage in Rutherford,NC and opened Burke Myotherapy. The journey began.
My passion for sports and helped me land many opportunities in the sports world.
In 1997 I got a job working for Gold's Gym in Hickory(hired by Ric Flair) and a spa in Morganton. I have worked with The Hickory Crawdads and Nascar Teams.
In 2004, All of this work lead to one of the biggest accomplishment of my career.
Being choosen to serve on the International Sports Massage Team that then got choosen to serve on The Health and Human Service Massage Team for the 2004 Summer Olympics in Athens, Greece.
I have continued by love for sports massage and Spa work by combinig the love to open Burke Myotherapy Massage and Spa on returning from Athens.
I have continued striving to further these love my learning from James Waslaski and Tom Myers. James described me as a "Intitutive Healer trapped in a Scientfic World."
In 2013 I changed focus again and went back to Burke Myotherapy in our current location. With a renewed focus on helping clients on a indivdual basic in pain management and core foundation work. I obtained my Advance Nail Tech license to focus on providing Safe Pedicures and Footcare.
Come join me as I continue to grow these passion and focus One Foot and One Person at a Time. hide
