“Massage is just a pampering service”, I use to believe that myself until my mother was involved in a car accident and the force pushed her out of the driver’s side door. She underwent physical therapy for a disc herniation and pinched nerve. I went with her to therapy and was shown by her therapist how I could help her manage her pain through massage. Since then, I have had an interest in massage and how it can be therapeutic, not just for relaxation.
I studied at Central Pennsylvania College where I received an associate’s degree in applied sciences to be a physical therapist assistant, but still did not find what I was truly looking for, which was a career in therapeutic massage. I found Baltimore School of Massage York Campus and after studying for a year, received my certification for massage therapy.
Massage is not only relaxing but can help decrease anxiety and depression, improve sleep, decrease blood pressure, decrease blood sugar, increase lymph drainage, decrease muscle tension, and help increase muscle strength.
