About Me – Before Massage Education
My path so far in life has been an interesting one. An Army Veteran by the time I turned 21, I ended my service in the military and pursued a cooking career with a total of 17 years in the restaurant industry. I learned how to cook quickly and attained several chef positions over the years, as Sous Chef for many fine dining establishments as well as Executive Chef of a catering company.
Over the years, although my love for cooking and great food still exists, the stress of that industry was becoming too much. I traded my apron for a massage table, and In 2007 attended the South Carolina Massage and Esthetics Institute. Graduating with a 4.0 GPA, and shortly after acquired my National Certification for Massage Therapy. Since then I have acquired certifications in Medical massage, pre-natal massage, advanced Deep tissue techniques, lymphatic massage for lymphedema as well as post-operative manual lymphatic drainage for body modification procedures.
Proven to be quite effective in treating Plantar fasciitis in many clients over the years. I use a manual method as well as a pro machine I use in my studio to relive the tension and pain associated with this disorder.
After 15 years I am still practicing massage, but it’s a career I still love and still have a great passion for. I am up to date on all new South Carolina regulations and have already been inspected with an additional Massage Provider location license. I hold my current massage and business license, and of course, always insured.
