People often ask why I decided to become a massage therapist in Batesville, Indiana. Part of me is a nurturer, always wanting to take care of people. Yet another aspect is my curiosity and wish to understand how we are put together. Why does our body work the way it does? What a magnificent machine we are; so complex yet working at maximum efficiency! This all came together as a calling to pursue a career in massage therapy.Years ago in a meditation group, a massage therapist told me that as I spoke about my hopes for the future he envisioned me practicing massage. He said I had the heart of a servant and the hands of a healer. He clarified that he meant a servant in the sense of one who is devoted to service to others. I’ll never forget him or his message. He was a major influence on my entering SHI School of Medical Massage in the fall of 2006. After graduation, I opened Angel Light Therapeutic Massage & Energy Therapy and began my journey as a massage therapist.
Improving quality of life and relieving pain is my intent when I work with someone. Some people come to me for wellness massage because they understand the value of staying healthy and the role massage plays in a healthy lifestyle. Others suffer from chronic pain or daily stress that is affecting their body in a negative way. If I can improve a client’s quality of life with stress relief, pain relief or improved health, I have satisfied my purpose as a healing servant.
So what can I bring to you as a client? You will always be more than an appointment that fills my schedule. Each of my clients is unique and I will work with you to meet your goal during the massage session. At your first appointment, you will fill out a health history and I will take time to discuss your concerns and questions. I work with a caring, intuitive touch that is backed by excellent training in medical massage. After your massage, we can discuss the outcome of your treatment. The body has a story to tell, we just need to listen.
