I know, I'm nosey. I was a travel writer.
For six years, I got to travel to Bed & Breakfasts and get massages, all for free, and write about it. So my roots are in traveling, meeting people and hearing their stories. Now I travel around and do The World Massage Festival & Massage Therapy Hall of Fame.
I found the adjustment to a single location massage establishment, inside a strip mall, very confining. So I started a way to stay "in the massage world and travel!" But that is another story!
What's your story? What did you do before massage? Tell us of your travels and what massage is like where you are, especially if you massage outside the U.S. We really like pictures, if possible.

Thanks and welcome to Massage Professionals!
Massage therapy has always been my calling. Before the age of 10, I knew that I wanted to become a massage therapist but didn't finally pursue my dream until 2008 & finishing school in June of this year. I have a bachelor's degree in Agriculture Business but didn't go into the field. Even during school, I would sometimes massage a couple of my classmates shoulder's & even then, they told me I was in the wrong field. After school, I stayed in banking & then that progressed onto many other fields such as: purchasing (absolutely loved this job), accounts payable/receivable, customer service, student loans, administrative work & finally insurance. I really enjoy the insurance industry & it is not rocket science to figure out either...Currently, I am doing massage therapy fulltime & love it. Timing is everything. Even though I wish I had ventured into massage years ago, God told me when it was time to go & am so very glad I did. I truely enjoy helping people......Me & massage therapy are one. I am looking forward to the journey ahead with massage & am very excited.
