I am so glad I found Massage! It is what I was born to do. It feels great to be able to change a stressed-out, hurting client into a happy, pain-free client. I really enjoy providing a space and time for clients to forget about the world for a while. Most modern people ignore their bodies and don't listen to the signals they are getting from them. It is very fulfilling to help put mind and body in touch with each other again. I enjoy teaching clients how to help themselves to achieve optimal health. The body is an amazing machine that will heal itself if we only give it a chance.
I have been married to my high school sweetheart David for 34 years now. We have three grown-up kids and two grandsons scattered across the state of Washington as well as two cats, a dog and some fish. Besides Massage, I enjoy reading, riding (horses and motorcycles), singing, hunting and fishing. I was a stressed-out office manager for many years before discovering the gift of massage; so I really do "feel your pain" !My husband Dave installing my new sign. Isn't he handsome!
December 2016 Update: I have relocated my practice to Shelton, WA where my husband Dave has accepted a job. My first client day in Shelton was December 5th. I am grateful to have found the perfect place to work in. It is a beautiful, welcoming space in an office complex surrounded by other health care professionals. Come check it out: 2146 W Railroad Ave, Suite C, Shelton, WA 98584. My cell number is the same, so give me a call soon!
Thanks again to my wonderful clients and friends I had to leave behind in Colville. I miss you all! I am so glad I had the opportunity to serve you and be a small part of your life. -Brenda W 2146 W Railroad Ave, Lefthand building, bottom right door :)
