What inspired Maria Elena to become a Licensed Massage Therapist?
Maria Elena moved to Florida from Massachusetts 20 years ago. Since she moved from the northeast, she have been involved in couple of rear end car accidents while stopped in complete traffic. Consequently, after her 2nd accident her back has never been the same. She started receiving massage therapy sessions and felt an incredible amount of relief. Needless to say, she became a raved fan and started receiving regular massage sessions.
At the time, she was in a job that didn’t fulfill her and really wanted to make a career change. She felt attracted to the massage therapy field as she was feeling better and better after every session. Then, it clicked!!! She wanted to share the relief, wellness and benefits of what massage therapy sessions provided her.
Maria Elena has worked in many different fields and understand the stresses and chronic pain that accompanies it. She believes her clients deserve to take time out to recharge and take care of themselves so that they can be able to take care of others. She also believes that feeling good on the outside helps us to feel better in the inside as well. Her goal is for her clients to feel relief without having to take medications all the time so they are able to “unwind” and enjoy life.
She believes in helping others feel better by assisting with the healing process as this is her life’s true passion and calling. She feels extremely blessed to be able to educate others about how to alleviate their pain through medical massage and skin care as she feels that God put her through many different experiences as a gift in disguise to help others.
If you are looking for an alternative way to alleviate your acute or chronic pain due to various reasons without medications in the long run, do yourself a favor and take Time 2 Unwind. Schedule your appointment with Maria Elena so you can take some time to take care of you!
