I started with massage when I was 15. I read books to learn some techniques and tried them out on friends and family. I was thrilled to see that it actually helped them! Later, during my martial arts training, I helped some friends who suffered from pain and it was a great relief for them. That was how I began to study Rehabilitation Massage, Physiotherapy and Lymphatic Drainage at the Institute of Traditional Medicine. It was a life changing decision. I quit the office job I’d had for eleven years and I’ve been working with massage ever since: a dream come true.
