Owner and Licensed Massage Therapist at Inner Balance Massage and Body Work Therapy
Several events led up to me getting into the massage field. My mother was diagnosed with lung cancer and after spending many hours massaging her head, hands and feet I saw how much it helped her feel more comfortable. I decided I needed a little down time to relax and get myself ready for the hard road I was to travel with my mother.
After receiving a massage I realized it was not just a luxury but it truly was a theraputic necessity for anyone going through a hard time such as what I had gone through.
That massage was so important to me during that time that I wanted to be able to give the same kind of support to someone else going through a hard time.
I went to visit Kneaded Energy School of Massage and signed up that day.
After a few weeks in to my classes I realized how much I loved the field and knew right away that I wanted to do this as a full time career.
I graduated from my classes October 2011 and started Inner Balance in January 2012.
I worked part time at Balance Day Spa and although I enjoyed my time there I realized my passion was geared towards clients that needed specific work such as deep tissue and were more comfortable in a smaller more personalized atmosphere
With the support of all of my loyal clients I have been able to grow my business enough that Inner Balance will be moving to a larger studio that will allow me to offer a few more services that I was not able to offer in the current location.
I think the best way to give back to the community is to get involved so I have spent many hours performing chair massage at community events such as The Mudd Bug Run, Level 5 Fitness and the Marine Run.
I am so grateful to be able to get up every day and do exactly what I love to do. There is nothing more fulfilling for me than when I know that I have helped to put my clients mind body and soul in a much calmer peaceful state than before they walked through my door
