I know, I'm nosey. I was a travel writer.
For six years, I got to travel to Bed & Breakfasts and get massages, all for free, and write about it. So my roots are in traveling, meeting people and hearing their stories. Now I travel around and do The World Massage Festival & Massage Therapy Hall of Fame.
I found the adjustment to a single location massage establishment, inside a strip mall, very confining. So I started a way to stay "in the massage world and travel!" But that is another story!
What's your story? What did you do before massage? Tell us of your travels and what massage is like where you are, especially if you massage outside the U.S. We really like pictures, if possible.

Thanks and welcome to Massage Professionals!
Before massage I was a lawyer and a family court magistrate referee. Very high stress and the type of job where no one wants to see you. So after 32 years I retired and decided to start over doing something that I loved and that would decrease the stress in people's lives instead of add to it. I'll be graduating in about a month. It's been an eye opening and challenging year---I've learned so much. But now---yikes I have to figure out how to practice in the real world and it seems so very confusing but exciting too!
