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!
I was a real estate broker and a corporate executive. Wondered why I wasn't happy in those fields. It's no mystery now. I love, love, love what I do. In my myofascial release practice I help people overcome their pain when they have been told they must live with their pain, and/or take pills and have surgeries. Thanks for asking.

I was a Diagnostic Imaging technologist (X-ray/MRI). I worked in a variety of settings including teaching hospitals, operating/emergency rooms, private orthopedic/sports medicine practice and psych. hospital....right next door to the ECT room!! : o I also worked for a moble x-ray company for many years that serviced nursing homes and correctional facilities. I'd thought about going to PT school, but massage seemed a more appealing option for a variety of reasons. So glad I made the choice I did.
