What was your inspiration behind being a Licensed Massage Therapist?
VaLesa: My mom treated me to a massage session on my 16th birthday—and I loved everything about it—but mostly I was amazed at the power of touch! The idea that one person could provide relief and comfort to an individual with techniques specific to a muscle was very appealing to me. I believe it's because I have always wanted to "fix" muscles and joints to help people move pain-free, so me and massage are a perfect match.
What do you like the most about working at YTC?
VaLesa: Oh wow, that's a tough question! Can I say everything and everyone!? Literally, everyone is so nice and helpful! The ambiance is very comforting. I feel like I'm part of a family, which helps me relax and focus on my clients.
What are your hobbies?
VaLesa: I need to get one, but I do like to read, dance, and sing.
What type of massage is your favorite, when you are the client?
VaLesa: I like to get a massage that has a smooth rhythm and a firm pressure, but if there is an area that is tight I want the therapist to address it, accordingly.
What is one thing most people don’t know about you?
VaLesa: I like going to the movies by myself. I don't mind going with others, but I most enjoy when it's just meee! :)
