Through massage therapy, I help people reduce muscle pain, pregnancy discomfort, stress, tension headaches, and chronic pain. In this post, I'll share a little about my experience as a massage therapist and some background info on my career.


My Training


I attended the massage therapy program at Miller-Motte Technical College. Throughout my 1,200 hours of coursework on the history of massage, anatomy, pathology, kinesiology, special populations, practical training, and student clinics, I maintained a 3.9 GPA.


Massage therapy is regulated in our state by the North Carolina Board of Massage and Bodywork Therapy. Massage therapists must pass the mBLEX exam, operate within the Scope of Practice outlined by the NCBMBT, and complete 24 hours of continuing education every two years. My license number is 15819.


My Experience


I began my first job as a massage therapist at a small franchise day spa in Raleigh just after receiving my license in August 2016. I was blown away when I interviewed for the job. The spa was BEAUTIFUL, providing amenities and treatments I hadn't even dreamed of.


It was the perfect job for a new therapist. Every fancy treatment had its own written protocol, and training sessions were scheduled regularly. I was soaking up knowledge like a sponge, and I'm grateful for the opportunity to learn so much. I spent three years working alongside many talented therapists while I found the rhythm of my new career.


When a former teacher reached out about an opening at The Spa at 1010 Nash in Wilson, I was ready for a change, and the drive would be much shorter, so I took a chance at a new place. I was there for just over a year when Covid shook the world.


Opening Unkinked Massage Therapy


Covid put things into perspective for many of us, and it wasn't any different for me. I realized how much I value fostering relationships with my clients and building connections in my community.


More than anything, I wanted to build a business that worked for me. With this in mind, I filed the Articles of Organization in October 2021 and accepted my first client at Unkinked Massage Therapy on January 3, 2022.


My Inclusivity Statement


In my practice, everyone is welcome. I'm committed to creating a healing space where you can kick back, relax, and be yourself. I serve people regardless of age, race, religion, body type, nationality, sexual orientation, gender identity, neurodiversity, or disability.


Every session is free of judgment, and I strive to be mindful of my interactions with clients of varying backgrounds and cultures. I continuously learn from those I serve and aim to be accountable by welcoming feedback with grace and using it to become a better ally.
