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!
My first carer was as a dancer and I taught for Arthur Murray's for around five years, Then for about 10 years I was a Chef in SLC and Denver. Mostly making sushi but a few places I worked on the line and for catering companies. I even tried working in the oil fields for a while but I did not have the disposition for the it. And I have all my teeth. lol. Now I am doing my part to try and make the world a better place through massage therapy and fitness training.
Can relate to the traveling, I was a carney for 12 years, then my disease got the better of me, took a few years off to battle that. In rehab I knew someone going to Heartwood, I spent a year there going to massage school, it was time to grow up and get an almost real job. Still have never filled out a w2 but I'm much better off being self employed.
