T-Minus 2 days

Well, here I am, 2 days of school left! I am so excited....but sad all at the same time. This year started and has almost come to an end in a blink of an eye. I have made many new friends, met some pretty "interesting" people and will be moving on from the adventure with some crazy memories.

A new chapter in life will start for me.....I will be working a few days a week with a Chiropractor and a couple of days a week out of a spa. It will be a nice change of pace from the days of ole'.

Bring on the good times!

Almost done

A quick update on my and my progress with school. I continue to be on the Honor Roll (loving the 4.0 grades!) and hold my roll as a student Ambassador. I have only 8 weeks of school left and am praying very hard that the state will expedite my license application. :-)

I currently am running through ALL of my options once I am finished with school and my license is approved. I really want to start working with a chiropractor and or homeopathic medicine. My more long term goals are to do sports massage and continue clinical work. But ya gotta start somewhere.... :-)

I have a few leads...that I'm hoping will work out....if you know anyone who is looking for a massage therapist who is focused and passionate about bringing health through massage....tell them about me! :-)

Because we strive to offer a high level of professionalism a small sample of our policies are listed below:

Sexual harassment is NOT tolerated. If the therapist's or client's safety feels compromised, the session is terminated immediately.

Draping will be used during the session – only the area being worked on will be uncovered.

I further understand that massage should not be construed as a substitute for medical examination, diagnosis, or treatment and that I should see a physician, chiropractor or other qualified medical specialist for any mental or physical ailment that I am aware of. I understand that massage therapists are not qualified to perform spinal or skeletal adjustments, diagnose, prescribe, or treat any physical or mental illness, and that nothing said in the course of the session given should be construed as such. Because massage should not be performed under certain medical conditions, I affirm that I have stated all my known medical conditions, and answered all questions honestly.
