A Reflection on 2021

As for me, this has been SUCH an eventful year, and I am filled with thankfulness for all my dear clients' loyalty and support. I never would have thought that I'd build an independent massage therapy practice from scratch during a pandemic.

But after many years as an employee at Massage Envy, now here I am running my own small business! It truly blows my mind. With your help we've gotten this thing off the ground, and we're moving forward towards a better, less stressful future. Deeply grateful for you.

On a more personal note, this has been a challenging but inspiring year for me. I have grieved the loss of three dear loved ones (and attended all three of their cremations as a witness — something I had not done before). It's had me thinking a lot about the meaning of life, and my purpose as a massage therapist. Life is not easy. Almost everyone we meet is quietly struggling through something difficult.

I want to tell you that I am here to help you feel better in any way I can. Although reduced physical discomfort is probably the most common goal of massage therapy, I am increasingly drawn to stress relief and relaxation as my special area of interest. We simply can't live in a constant state of anxious hypervigilance. It's toxic for our bodies and blocks our enjoyment of the beauty of life.

That said, you're invited to see me for any reason at all. I hope to help you feel cared-about and supported through safe, gentle physical contact. I hope to help you feel at home in your body and in the world around you. That's what I'm really here for. ♥

That's it for now!

Thank you for reading all the way to the end!

The holidays can be a wonderful and also stressful time. I look forward to helping you make the most of them.

Please feel free to let me know what questions, preferences, or feedback you have. I am so grateful to be on this journey together!

Here's to a bright and joyful holiday season, and an awesome 2022 full of relaxing massages! See you soon. ♥
