Hi, I’m a massage therapist (there, I’ve said it)
I have previously been both a nurse and a social worker, both of which I thoroughly enjoyed. But nothing compares to being a massage therapist.
It brings tremendous joy to me to be able to ease the tension people are holding in their muscles (usually their shoulders!!) and help them relax and feel a difference in a relatively short time.
I once did massage at a ladies night not realising one of them was pregnant. I had to refuse treatment for the lady and we agreed on a foot spa and facial, all very impromptu. The feeling I had was awful. There and then I vowed I would undertake as many courses as I could in order that I might work with different people’s circumstances.
The oncology massage training means that I can now safely treat people who currently have or have had cancer.
I believe the people who care for those going through cancer also deserve some time to relax so, if that’s you, I’m always delighted to offer you a massage treatment as a carer also.
To be able to add to the tremendous work already being undertaken by TRACtion would be an amazing opportunity and I hope to meet you soon.
