In 1995 I suffered from a pinched nerve in my neck due to a muscle spasm that left me bedridden and unable to move. That night I slept with a heating pad on my neck and woke up feeling refreshed, but once I stood up, I realized something was wrong. The muscles in my back and neck relaxed while other muscle groups tightened. Overnight I developed a severe scoliotic curvature in my back and neck. I was then referred to a massage therapist who stabilized my neck and back with a series of treatments. Later, in 2008, I was in a car accident where I suffered from a severe whiplash resulting in both herniated and bulging disks that left me partially paralyzed for 3 days. I was able to avoid long lasting complications and chronic pain through massage. Having personally experienced these traumas has given me a greater understanding of my client’s needs and made my journey as a massage therapist more meaningful.
