About Artistic Handz Licensed Massage Therapy

Usually on a bio page you might find a life story or a list of academic accomplishments. However, I want to use this space and your time to answer the three questions I am most often asked but not covered by the FAQ’s.

unnamedThe first question is, “How long have you been doing massage?” — As of 2014, I have been a licensed massage therapist for 10 years.

The second most often asked question is, “What made you want to become a massage therapist?” — Throughout my life I have always had a fascination with “folk medicine,” Eastern medicine, alternative healing therapy and massage therapy. I studied and worked in a variety of different industries (TV News, legal assistant, executive assistant, retail stores, customer service call centers) None of those worked out for me.

My friends got really tired of constantly providing job references for me and told me that I should strongly consider pursuing my passion for massage therapy. One friend even gave me a brochure for the Omaha School of Massage Therapy (now known as Omaha School of Massage and Health Care).

Since the first day of class at and continuing to this very day, I can wholeheartedly say I have found my true calling. I know, that sounds really corny but since I started doing the work I love, I don’t have any bad days on the job. I can’t imagine doing anything else but I can imagine doing even more within the field of massage and alternative therapy.

The third question I am most often asked is, “Don’t your hands ever get tired?” — No, my hands do not get tired. Part of being a massage therapist is taking care of how my muscles are feeling. I make sure that I use good body posture and positioning so that I don’t over extend or over exert my muscles while trying to work on my clients. I get massages frequently. I visit a Chiropractor often. I make sure I drink at least one gallon or more of water daily. I also make sure that I get the rest that I need in order to be available for my clients.

If you’re still curious about me and why I founded and own Artistic Handz, feel free to ask during your next visit! Here are a few extra bits of info on me.

  • I spent the first 15 years of my life living on the East coast. My dad was a Navy man.
