In 1994 I was in a serious automobile accident. I broke my sternum and jammed together several vertebrae in my neck. As my body healed from this trauma, I suffered from intense pain and began searching for relief.
Thankfully someone suggested seeing a neuromuscular massage therapist. A massage therapist trained in NMT knows how to assess the client and identify the points of tension in muscle and fascia tissue associated with each person’s muscular condition. Then the therapist applies the appropriate techniques, including myofascial release, cupping, METs (muscle energy techniques) to release the contracted muscles. The therapist’s strong, deep pressure helped my healing muscles to relax and I began to feel better even after my first visit. Massage therapy became a major part of my recovery process and is still an essential aspect of my health and well being today.
When I gained an opportunity to return to school in the fall of 2008 I knew I wanted to become a massage therapist. I knew how much massage therapy was helping me and I wanted to help others gain relief from their chronic, painful, muscular conditions. I researched massage schools all over Georgia and decided to attend Georgia Massage Institute in Winder Georgia. I chose GMI because they offer a comprehensive education in neuromuscular massage therapies based on the extensive research and practices of Dr. Janet Travell and Dr. David Simons, the first specialists of trigger point therapy. As my massage practice developed I became more interested in the soothing help of energy healing, specifically Reiki. I have seen tremendous results in my Reiki clients. They have less pain, anxiety and more peace in their lives. Personally, Reiki has deepened my relationship with the divine creator, helped heal relationships and facilitated authentic personal growth.
