How Healing Hands and Bodyworks
came to be...
My first massage wasn't until I was in my mid 30s. It was a wedding present, little did I realize the change that afternoon at the spa was going to invoke in my life!
In September of 2003, I weighed nearly 400 lbs. I had just been diagnosed with Fibromyalgia (I'm the 3rd generation in my family). I had severe sleep apnea, dangerously high blood pressure, high cholesterol and was pre diabetic. You can say that I was on a very fast moving train toward the
end of my life.
That first massage could have gone so much differently than it did. My massage therapist eased my concerns about being so heavy and assured me that massage was for everyone -- young, old, skinny, heavy, healthy or sick. I remember the feeling of love and acceptance that I received from her that day and I strive to give that unconditional acceptance to each and every person that comes in to our facility.
In 2005 I found myself with a new lease on life and a 2nd chance to take control of my health. This is when I enrolled in Massage School and when I found my passion.
Today, I still struggle with fibromyalgia, Lipedema, severe arthritis that has resulted in 3 joint replacements and chronic pain, but my flares are more manageable with regular massage therapy and I LOVE that my former students who work here are able to share the gift of massage and its many benefits with all who come in to the office.
Healing Hands and Bodyworks therapists are drawn to helping those who live with chronic pain of any kind. They understand what its like to be there and what its like to be the caregiver of a chronic pain sufferer.
You could say that Healing Hands and Bodyworks was created to be a safe haven for everyone who needs a caring, calm and relaxing place to start to heal, and although I'm no longer involved in the every day of Healing Hands and Bodyworks, our original philosophy still makes HH&B the safe haven you are looking for. Let your healing begin with a visit to Healing Hands and Bodyworks Therapeutic Massage.
