Massage Therapy: A Success Story

“Like many African-American women and girls, I struggled with obesity, leading a lifestyle of physical inactivity and poor nutrition. Inspired by my mother at an early age, I distanced myself from many peer influences and had the wherewithal to affect real change by embracing healthier habits that have become my life’s passion and profession.”
