Hay Ya'll coming in from Austin Texas

Postby ATM on Mon Jul 12, 2010 10:39 am

Hi!

To introduce myself, I'm actually from Liberty Hill, Texas outside of Austin (not real good with big cities). I own an Office in Cedar Park, Texas and Direct a massage program in Austin Texas. The funny part is I started massage therapy in Gainesville, Florida. I've been a therapist for a few years now... (Sometimes too many years).

I started in massage from my own injuries, spent a couple years in a wheel chair from a freak accident, came out the other end doing something I love and a big pay back to the therapist that helped me.

I've been teaching massage for about 16 years in Florida and in Texas. I love the students and all the gifts they bring to me.

You will have to forgive my writing on an occasion or two, one of the side effects of the accident is a great case of dyslexia, make for some interesting spelling errors and sometime some pretty funny grammar errors.

I can't remember how I got here but, the section on pathologies interested me to not end, you don't find many therapists going to to such remarkable detail. You folks have a great tool here. Hope I can add something that may be useful to others in the future.

I'm really not very good at relaxation massage any more. Most of my work is focused on injuries and anything no one else whats to work through. I love puzzles.

And if you haven't noticed, I talk to much!

Hi Alex

:smt006

Welcome to the board and feel free to talk as much as you like. Did you go to the Florida School of Massage in Gainesville? I've been there a few times for CEU classes and enjoyed the school very much.

I did go to the Florida School of Massage... Part of the outlawed "D" class. The school there is remarkable, and alway evolving to the student and communities needs. Paul has done a fantastic job!
