Hello, group! My name is Tracy River, I am a licensed massage therapist since 2005. I have practiced massage in Florida (where I was originally licensed), Tennessee and South Carolina. Most of my career I have worked at hotel spas and have enjoyed working with people from around the United States as well as from other parts of the world. The Coronavirus outbreak has left me concerned for my profession and I did a lot of soul searching about whether it was time for a change. I have decided that although things seem so uncertain in the states right now, massage is an innate part of being human and will always exist in some form or other.
I have felt an inner change lately and decided that a new modality may be exactly what I am searching for. I had been looking for an Ashiatsu course not knowing that it was really Thai massage I was interested in learning. Luckily, a little internet research put me in the right direction. I am very excited to begin this journey and thankful that Shama Kern has made it possible!
Welcome to our community, Tracy. It seems you really did your research to find what makes your heart sing. I agree with you that massage will make a comeback. I know for a fact that the interest is still there since our course sales have not dipped during the pandemic. I also heard from therapists who reopened their practice and who are booked solid.
I am glad that you settled on Thai Massage and chose our training!
