My interests are pretty varied; nobody really knows what to expect when I show up. What I'll talk about, what I might do; it's anyone's guess...Even I don't know.

Back in 2011 I started studying to become a Massage Therapist, and since graduation, my focus for article writing and learning/teaching has been in that field. There's so much to learn, understand and apply in any field affecting the human body, and massage is no exception.

There are tens of thousands of Licensed Massage Therapists spread all across the country, and it's my hope to write out some interesting and informative material that as I help some of them, it will make me a more apt and well rounded therapist myself.

That's a little bit about me, and I hope I can have you in my following! Follow me, and I'll probably follow you right back after all! :)

I've had a ton of massages in the past, and honestly the worst part of the massage wasn't the therapist with the creepy moustache, or the rest of her bizarre qualities; I have to say that it was the music that they had playing. If I'm going to pay seventy…
