The New Year has begun!
So ~ yesterday was the first day back to the office in the New Year. I received a lot of calls and text messages about scheduling a massage or if there was any availability this coming week. This excites me as I know it's going to be a fun filled and action packed year ahead.
I also received a "911" call from a Navy Corpsman, he tweaked his back. he wasn't sure on how he did it but just the same he was in pain and was going crazy trying to find someone to help him out. The problem was it was Monday - the day right after new years - NO ONE WAS WORKING... but I was, The USMT office was open & operational. We know the mission.. our Military!
I know that some will say that we need to take care of ourselves first, yup - you are correct and I had all weekend (off) to do that. I don't treat my career or my profession like a "hobby" or a "part time gig" - I'm serious about what I do and for the Athletes, Clients, Marines, Sailors & Navy Corpsman I work with here in Camp Lejeune. They are the MISSION!
Interesting as it is.. I had the opportunity to work with two brothers yesterday ( their dad is a Marine) One is a Pleb at Annapolis and the other is at NC state - he plays on the football team. I've been working with these young men since they were both in HS. Both of them asked me similar questions while they were getting worked on... and it was something like this:
"How often do you look for new ways to treat people?" I was curious as to why they would ask me this after working with them for so long.. they both said ( in their own words ) that they have had others work on them but never seem to feel like the work they get targets the issues that plague them but I can always zero in on the trouble spots and resolve them until they "wreck" their bodies again.
I toss that up to continually seeking new answers, new technology, new and improved ways to address the soft tissue muscular dysfunctions the body presents thru physical activities... and that is for all clients I see... not just athletes or Marines... EVERYONE.
That is a commitment I will always stick by... I will remain being Elite at what I do!
Always & with the Glitter!
( don't let the glitter deceive you)
