As of September 1, 2023
September is a month that signals new beginnings. More than January, the dawn of September feels like the start of a new year for a variety of reasons.
SEPTEMBER ALWAYS FELT TO ME MORE LIKE AN ANNUAL “RESET” THAN NEW YEAR’S DAY ITSELF.
Those lovely lazy summer days are now behind us, the days are getting visibly shorter and suddenly there’s a chill in the air that wasn’t there before. September has always been a time for new beginnings.
As I start this month with new beginnings, it’s with excitement yet nervous heart I announce … I'M A TEXAN!
I am now a Texas Licensed Massage Therapist, Texas Licensed Esthetician, Texas Animal Massage Therapist and soon to be a Licensed Texas Massage Therapy Instructor (MTI)
I began practicing the healing arts of massage therapy for 12.5 years. I am transferring my professional focus from humans to animals. I sought a way to combine my passion for helping others through wellness and massage therapy with my lifelong love for animals with becoming an animal massage therapist.
I am now the owner of “North Dallas Animal Massage.”
I will be relocating in June 2024….
I'm excited about this move, but I will really miss my clients, family and friends.
Not only do I view the body as a garden but life as well. I’ve learned wherever life plants you bloom with grace and that growing and changing is never easy but often necessary. With that being said this by far was one of the hardest decisions I've had to make.
North college hill 2016 – 2018 (2 yrs)
Finneytown 2018-2020 (2 yrs)
Fairfield 2020-2024 (4 yrs)
An end to an amazing era has come and a new beginning starts for me. Starting my massage career 12 years ago to becoming a business owner of 8 years. I’ve decided to move and elevate to the next chapter in my journey. It was a very difficult decision to make but necessary. Big dreams and bigger opportunities. Over the years there has been constant growth and expansion. The more you grow in life the more you outgrow your surroundings.
It has been a beautiful roller coaster ride but after 12 years I'm moving on to my new journey in Dallas with my family. I want to say a huge thank you to my amazing clients I have had over the years you have all been so supportive, fun, and kind, it wouldn't have been the same without you. I wouldn't be where I am without you. Over the years I have built long lasting friendships and you all have become my second family.
As I write this, I am holding back sad tears and tears of joy. As I navigate one of the biggest decisions of my life. I'm forever grateful for all my beautiful clients. I can't thank you enough for all the love, support, stories, laughter and kindness you have all shown me. You all made Garden of Wellness feel like a family and without you my dream of owning a business wouldn't have come alive.
As sad as it is saying goodbye over the next few months, I am looking forward to starting my new journey. I will miss all your beautiful faces. My last day taking clients in Cincinnati will be April 26, 2024. Looking forward to catching up with you all before. I encourage you to choose another massage therapist as soon as possible to ensure uninterrupted care. I also can provide a reference list of reputable massage therapist I trust. I regret that I will no longer be able to continue to serve you. It has been a pleasure to provide your care, and I wish you the best in the future.
I have grown close to so many of you and will never forget you. Thank you for trusting me with your health and wellness.
The Garden of Wellness has served its purpose.
Lots of love,
From your favorite Massage Therapist and Friend
