Meet Tim Battles
Originally, I went to see a massage therapist to help me with my lower back pain. I went 2 times and after only 2 visits I started to feel better. I was very impressed, and I asked her what it took to become a massage therapist. From that point I never looked back. I wanted to help people feel better, so I decided to go back to school and study massage therapy.
I like the idea of being able to help people with their pain. The fact that I can help someone relax from their busy life and enjoy peaceful rest makes me feel like I am making a difference.
I remember when I was interning at school that a lady came in to see me because she could not raise her arm to dress herself. After one massage with me she could raise her arm higher. She was so impressed that she continued to come to me throughout my entire internship. I was able to get her shoulder full pain free range of motion.
I’ve been a licensed massage therapist for 3.5 years.
