A question that I am asked almost daily is why did you choose this career path?
To be honest, as this was a change of career for me, I honestly feel that this career chose me. I began my career in digital marketing, graduating from University with a BSc Hons in Multimedia Technology and spent several years working in the digital marketing industry.
As much as it was exciting and challenging in an enjoyable way, it could at times as with the majority of professions, become quite stressful and physically and mentally draining. I sought various ways to manage this work-related stress and maintain my sanity as well as create the work life balance I desperately craved.
This included making the most of my annual leave with family holidays, making time to do things I enjoyed, such as activating my endorphins at the gym, going to the theatre, socialising with friends and most importantly spending quality time with the family.
However, what I felt really addressed not only the physiological elements of the fatigue and physical tension I was experiencing but also tapped into the psychological effects was holistic therapy, specifically massage.
Having always been a firm believer in holistic therapy and the power of touch, therapeutic and remedial massage was the most natural and immediately effective remedy of helping soothe my mind, body and soul to recover, relax and recharge itself.
