Where I Work

Everest College: Hayward
Lead Massage Therapist
Working at Massage Envy since 2012 I was promoted to Lead Therapist for my leadership tendencies, moral upkeep, reliability, attendance, and eye for detail, not to mention my clientele following was highest for over a year out of 22 other therapists. I never told any of my clients until it posed necessary for them to know, I choose to stay as humble as possible. I can never learn enough, so being a Leader has helped me help more people by showing I can't do everything on my own.
I know, whats the difference right? Well, actually to me it is a huge difference!
I consider myself more a massage therapist and bodyworker. A technician of massage follows protocols for everyone exactly the same.
While working in the spa setting after graduation, it was good for experience, money, and timing. But it wasn't very personal nor exciting after doing the same thing over and over.
It did teach me the value of these services. Oils like lavender or eucalyptus actually work! Dry skin brushing is wonderful for everyone and feels amazing, and temperature alternations are huge benefits.
Thanks to the Spa world, I got my taste in how to incorporate it into my business now, and I think you would love the way I do it, not to mention my price tier!
I worked for two different Chiropractors at the same time. One was extremely good and the other just ok. Both, thank you Lord, treated with respect and courtesy. (Its harder to find than you think!) One paid well, and the other, not so well. But both taught me valuable lessons and showed me how to treat people with more than just massage techniques. They actually guided me more towards therapy vs. massage therapy.
This is why people say my touch feels more like a physical therapist and massage technician combined. Well, good, that's exactly what I was going for!
Thanks to 4 years of working with these chiropractors, I now have knowledge in my database to ensure I do not get tired of learning more about my clientele's needs and desires.
