At the young age of 17, I became the family & friend, body & back rubber. Friends and family would come over and want their back, neck, or legs rubbed after doing things like, “moving the boat”, “cleaning out the top cabinets”. When that happened, my concern was, what if, or could I make their something worse? Receiving formal training informed me as to when it is appropriate to massage, as well as when to refer someone to a medical professional.
In 1991, the doors opened for me to attend classes at the Alexandria School of Scientific Therapeutics. I successfully completed the Swedish Massage course in 1992 and immediately followed up by taking the Pfrimmer Deep Muscle Therapy course. During the class of 1992-1993, I was an instructor’s assistant. During the class of 1993-1994 I filled in part-time as an instructor’s assistant. I encourage you to follow the links at the bottom of this page to learn more about Alexandria School of Scientific Therapeutics, as well as Pfrimmer Deep Muscle Therapy.
Since 1995, my primary career/work has been Massage Therapy and specifically the Pfrimmer Deep Muscle Therapy. My experience has been that we can accomplish so much with nothing more than Pfrimmer Technique. For me, keeping it simple works, and as long as we are making positive changes in our bodies, we keep working with what’s working.
During the initial training, we were taught Swedish Massage, anatomy, and other classes required for school accreditation. Additionally, we were also introduced to about forty other “specific” techniques to help increase the range of motion and reduce pain in the body.
If you’re thinking, “what would my first massage session be like?” I have written out a check point list of what a typical first massage session with me, looks like. . . Keep in mind, there is no way for me to describe in writing how amazingly wonderful receiving a massage can be. I appreciate you taking the time to read this page to this point, because this is the only link to. . .
