"I actually love when someone comes in and I am their last resort for pain relief. I love the challenge of figuring out what is wrong, what caused the pain, what they are continuing to do that will continue the pain, and how can I fix it. With muscle pain, friends and family and coworkers do not see the person‘s pain. It gets very frustrating for the client because people think it’s all in their head or they just take an Advil or get a shot of Cortisone and they think everything will be OK. It doesn’t work that way. It’s my job to help them. This is my favorite thing about massage. I want my customers to be able to pick up their grandkids, enjoy retirement, go to work without a headache, be a great parent because they’re not in pain all of the time."
