“I have had many years of my life spent with chronic migraine. Additionally, a minor car accident in the early 2000s, followed by a fall in 2005, has contributed to chronic pain in my back and neck, and occasional issues with sciatic pain. I have seen the success massage can have not only in relaxation and stress reduction, but in managing and reducing chronic pain. It has been a long-time goal of mine to become a massage therapist to share my knowledge of pain conditions in helping others to manage or reduce the daily discomforts they may be experiencing.”
