Hi Trina, I'm so sorry! I'm terrible at this social media stuff and don't even think to look for friend requests very often! Absolutely, feel free to ask me questions. I'll be glad to help however I can!
Bamboo-fusion is an excellent treatment for use with deep tissue and medical massage. My practice is more focused towards medically based massage as well. Nathalie and Karen are very quick to respond to emails and/or phone calls, so if you check the main website at www.bamboo-fusion.com, it will have the contact information for you to gain more information from them. I do feel that people are truly drawn towards specific techniques and instructors. I don't know anything about any bamboo treatments that were "developed" after Bamboo-fusion, so I will not speak about those. I only know that we offer an excellent training program with excellent tools. And we stand behind both 100%. True integrity is demonstrated throughout our company. I am sure you will enjoy the work and it will benefit your business. Regardless of which technique you go with, I hope you enjoy your training and your body benefits from the tools.
Hello Trina, I truly love Bamboo-fusion. It makes the work so much easier on my body and the clients love it. I incorporate it into all of my sessions unless they are contraindicated for heat and/or pressure. You can look on the main website at www.bamboo-fusion.com for a therapist in your area. I'm sure if you experience the work, you will want to learn it. They are so easy to clean after each client and very portable for outcalls also.

Hello : )
I graduated in 2002. Massage has been a great business for me. I love it. A lot of hard work tho!
that's awesome you didn't have to go out looking! it's an even bigger bonus that you don't have to work your buns off 5 days a week for chicken scratch. lol. I've kinda been slacking on getting my papers in, because I'm a little nervous to start working. I would love to get into horse massage but I have other priorities that need to be dealt with before I can go on to do that next adventure.
how are you and your massage?? are you working from home or in an office setting??
I am waiting for my license so I can get started working! I cant wait!!!
