Aromatherapy at Vision Forward’s Play It Forward Sports & Wellness Camp!

Yesterday, I had the honor to teach an aromatherapy class at Vision Forward‘s Play it Forward Sports & Wellness Camp at Marquette University. Vision Forward provides services and resources, from birth through adulthood, to people with visual impairments.
What a BLAST! 16 adolescents ranging from 10-16 years old joined me in learning a little background on essential oils and safety. They all experienced different aromas and what those could help with: sleeping, relaxing, focusing, and waking up. At the end of the class, they picked 1 or 2 essential oils to mix with their carrier oils to take home. They were enthusiastic and such a joy to work with!

Neighbors of Pure Wellness

In April, my neighbor Kristine Joy moved in next door to my suite. Kristine is also a Reiki Master Teacher and an Intuitive as well! She holds regular spirit message circles and is an all-round kind, fun and warm person!
In August we will have a yoga studio opening up across the hall from us! Deanna from Tulasara Wellness and Cari of Simple Joy Yoga will be moving in so make sure you grab a spot in their classes after a service with me!

Now Offering NCBTMB Continuing Education Credits!

For years I have been going back and forth on becoming an accredited teacher for continuing education. I finally decided this year to do it!
After a lengthy application process, outlining my classes by each hour, listing objectives and more, it was finally done. Then I had to be patient as the approval period could be up to 8 weeks.
Yesterday, I received notice that I am now an Approved Provider of NCBTMB! This means I can give continuing education credits for professionals who need them! Licensed Massage Therapists of most states in the country need these to continue their licensure so it’s pretty important!
I am excited to be about to provide this now!

Some Things Get Better With Age

On February 2nd, 2008 I turned 30 and graduated from Lakeside School of Massage. It was both a great beginning and shock to a new decade for me. I wanted to help people and changed careers from doing Graphic Design and Office Management to becoming a Licensed Massage Therapist.
Our economy had just tanked as well, leading me through my first few years in the massage world with some real eye-opening experience.

Winds of Change

As Pure Wellness has grown providing more Reiki and wellness classes, I found myself needing a specific space for those classes. I had seen this building 4 years ago when we were space hunting, but it seemed so out of reach at the time. Then my family and I moved into that area, not realizing that was that building. Then I went business space shopping at the beginning of the year and it popped up in the listings.

Wellness Education

As my business has evolved, it has ironically turned to more classes. I say ironically because I think back to my youth and I remember how much I struggled as a student and my wonderment of how anyone would ever want to be a teacher. As I matured and grew over the years, it was crystal clear. Not only are you allowed to spread the exciting information that you are interested in to others, but you become a better student yourself. Education is something I seek on a daily basis. Always reading, always experiencing.

Massage Magazine Feature

If anyone asks me who my favorite massage teachers have been, I’ll always answer one as Tina Allen. She is a rock star! She’s taken Pediatric Massage around the world and truly spread a special gift.

I was very excited to answer some questions for her article in Massage Magazine (a monthly publication) about my son, who is on the Autism spectrum, and being a Massage Therapist as well.
