As seen on TV!

Here's some fun news! East-West College of the Healing Arts ( ), my old massage school, asked me to appear in their first TV commercial, along with 4 other massage therapists, including 2 instructors. They wanted to portray real massage therapists doing real bodywork in their own offices. My client during the filming was my dear friend and colleague, April Sykes, LMT. Though, you won't be able to see her joyful smile since she was face down in the face cradle.

I tend to cringe when I see the commercials for the other massage schools. They don't look like real world situations, the LMT's body mechanics aren't very good and they look like they're doing such fluffy work with little benefit. We filmed a couple weeks ago. I'm not sure when the commercials will air yet, but keep an eye out!

Looking forward to when our paths cross next!
