This business will be built around massage therapy. I currently have had my massage license for 3 years. 1st year I worked for the school doing their original massage modality work. 2nd year I had to take care of family while holding a job and didn’t have much confidence in my massage skills. I had also attended an online school learning alternative medicine. 3rd year my family had passed away and now I am on working on my 4th year.

This convention had also let me down because it was when I learned that not all massage schools are equal. Most massage school teach antique massage work. The work I do now is more updated and I am more confident in my scope of practice. About May I had star
