As with many who switch to massage therapy as a second career I became interested in body mechanics and care due to my own chronic pain after my second child was delivered in c-section in 2012. I was "throwing out my back" every few weeks, and my left arm was dulled to sensitivity and weak. I was told I had "chronic tight muscles" but there was nothing wrong with my muscles or nerves.

My Pilates instructor turned massage therapist Emily Smith gave me bodywork focusing on fascia work several times a week, and then once a week, etc. - and after a few months of work I was pain free.  Since then I have discovered a suite of holistic tools to stay pain free including massage, yoga, pilates, etc.

When I moved to Montreal in 2017 with my family I had the opportunity to discover a new career. There I found Lotus Palm school and discovered that I loved practicing Thai Massage. 

... a few changes and life things along the way ...

In 2019 I went to school at Therapeutic Massage and Training Center in New Jersey, where I learned deep tissue and therapeutic massage with specific attention to scapula work - as this is such a common area of tension. 

I love working on the mat and am interested to learn many more therapeutics that I can have in my bodyworker toolkit.

Hi Elise, welcome to our forum. That was quite an interesting story. You clearly don't need any convincing that massage therapy can help with serious issues.

Thai Massage is great for therapeutic work, and here at Thai Healing Massage Academy we specialize in therapeutic applications through many of our courses which dive deeply into shoulder therapy, knee therapy, back therapy, hip therapy, sciatica therapy, foot therapy, neck therapy, and sacrum therapy.

You are definitely in the right place to acquire more therapeutic skills! Smile
