I started exploring massage therapy when I was 10, with the help of siblings and friends. I graduated a 720-hour massage and neuromuscular therapy program in 2003 as part of my plan to become a physical therapist. I worked as a massage therapist to get myself through college. I enjoyed the work, but never fully defined myself as a massage therapist. People responded to me better when I told them I was an Anthropology student or, much later, when I said I was a game designer.
After exploring many majors and finding myself in various jobs, I have a whole new outlook on massage therapy. It can be multisensory, invigorating, and curious. I can be a dancer and an artist with my massage work.
