I originally got interested in massage since I was an avid marathoner and triathlon participant and noticed what massage did for my recovery from training and races.  I had a willing group of "volunteers" that were athletes while I was in massage school to practice on, and initially that was my population when I got my license.  Through word of mouth, I branched out to stressed out executives, moms to be, and now  people who are caretakers for their aging parents.  One of my clients asked if I would like to massage a woman who is Intelectually/Developmentally Disabled and in a wheelchair all day and I said I now have 30 clients I see all over the city in the state schools and group homes.  Their sessions do not look like a "typical" session since their limbs and bodies are contracted but I have had some beautiful experiences of them opening up and letting me in so that are more relaxed, more interactive and more content and happy.  I have been blessed to touch many people for over 13 years and always looking for new ways to best serve my clients!

Hi Linda Kay, you are from Austin, my old stomping grounds before I moved to Thailand. I lived in Austin for quite a few years, and my daughter and my grand children are still there.

We have LOTS of therapists from Austin and Texas in general here in the forum and among our members.

It seems that you have a unique clientele there - good for them, and rewarding for you!
