Emma

I’ve wanted to be a massage therapist since I was 17. I’ve always been a tactile person. Ever since I was little, I was never afraid to go up to anything or anyone and feel them to get an idea of what they looked like. Being tactile is my way of seeing things, as I’ve been completely blind from birth. I finished my massage training in 2017, volunteered at lots of places and earnt a bit of money from massaging friends. I now work as a massage therapist, specializing in remedial and relaxation techniques. In the future, I want to have more skills and practice hot stone, reflexology, reiki and oncology massage. I’d like to work at events which will involve corporates, as well as massaging people with disabilities, and people in palliative care. When I’m not working I enjoy my friends, singing, listening to audio books, writing, exercising, animals and extreme activities like rock climbing and amusement park rides. I want to go to Queenstown, New Zealand in the near future to do all the adrenalin-rush activities like bungee jumping and canyon swings. At the moment though, I’m extremely happy with the job I have, and I couldn’t find a better job if I tried.
