Touch has been a part of Mary's life for as long as she can remember, from scratching her granddad’s back, to playing with her mom’s hair, to exchanging foot rubs with friends. Even now, she can’t go a day without either giving or receiving, even a 5-minute shoulder rub. She started suffering from migraines at seventeen. When no medications worked for her, Mary turned to massage therapy and fell in love with it.
Mary is now a certified massage therapist and has her own private practice. I did my training at the Virginia School of Massage, here in Charlottesville. I love my career but it’s not as easy as the school’s commercials would have you believe!
