Since I was a little girl, I have always wanted to help others. At first, I thought the way to do that was by becoming a nurse. I was raised to be skeptical of Chiropractors, and therefore, the only option for treatment was in a doctor’s office or by taking a medication. I soon learned, however, after entering nursing school and working in the hospitals for years that I was not following my dream. I wanted to help others but, I wanted to do so in a way that Integrated both modern day medicine and holistic practices. So, I followed my heart and graduated from the Southeastern Institute of Neuromuscular Massage in Charlotte, North Carolina in February 2009. I have since furthered my studies in Oncology and Hospital Massage, Advanced Neuromuscular Therapy, Trigger Point, Reiki (Level ll Practitioner) and now Bamboo-fusion.
Today, I work side by side with a fantastic Chiropractor. I use my knowledge from my experience in the medical field and apply it to my knowledge and experience as a Massage Therapist. An instructor in massage therapy school once said, “If you can help someone without hurting them, then you have mastered your craft.” That being said, I practice with the belief that once you step foot into my treatment room, I will not only help you relax but we will get the work done that you need at the same time. Bamboo-fusion has now taken that belief and exploded it into something even more significant. My clients LOVE it!
I am so grateful for the opportunity to become an instructor for Bamboo-fusion. It has opened many doors already for me as I am expanding not only massage therapy within the office I practice; I am opening a training area for Bamboo-fusion on the lower level of our office Cornerstone Chiropractic & Massage in Lansing, MI. I’m Blessed!
