Jamie, what inspired you to pursue a career in Massage Therapy, and how has this passion evolved?

I was juggling odd jobs and raising my kids. I studied Office Administration in high school, but it didn’t bring me much satisfaction. One day, I came across an advertisement for massage therapy in the newspaper, and later on, I heard a radio ad about it. I decided to call and inquire whether someone like me could pursue this field. After scheduling an appointment, I got to know about the benefits of massage therapy from the Administrator. I was thrilled to learn that I could help people feel better without undergoing years of training and earn a decent wage at the same time. From that moment, I was hooked.

What do you find most fulfilling about working with clients?

One of the most rewarding aspects of working with clients as a massage therapist is the establishment of trust and a strong relationship. Clients rely on me to provide them with effective massages that address their physical health concerns. My objective is to help educate clients on the importance of proper body mechanics and how it can assist them in navigating their busy lives. Unless one has studied the human body, it is difficult to comprehend the negative effects that everyday items like purses or wallets can have on the body.

Are there any specific areas of specialization or interest within the field of therapy that you are particularly passionate about?

I specialize in sports therapy and have received extensive training in this field after completing massage school. My focus is on reducing muscle pain, improving range of motion and flexibility, and promoting safe and effective movement. I have provided pre- and post-event massages at numerous sporting events and have worked with medically educated professionals to enhance the well-being of college athletes and participants in events such as the USA Olympic and Paralympic Games and Wounded Warrior Games. While I still offer sports massages, my current focus is on improving the overall health of my clients who experience pain and stress from their daily routines. I work to target specific areas of the body that are affected by their jobs and provide regular readjustments to help them lead a more comfortable life.

How do you stay updated with the latest developments and research in massage therapy?

I enjoy staying up-to-date with the latest advancements in massage therapy by reading reviews and watching certain individuals online. I am always looking to learn new techniques to better target specific muscles or groups that I may have overlooked before. By continually educating myself and gaining a better understanding of the human body, I can provide better service to my clients through my massage.

How do you unwind and recharge outside of work? Any hobbies or activities you enjoy?

I like to unwind by homesteading and tending to my gardens. Baking is also a passion of mine. During the summer, my family and I enjoy hiking and exploring new places. I’m always up for trying new things and going on new adventures. My Bible is my guide and I believe in treating everyone with love and kindness.
