Aloha! My name is Meredith. My discovery of massage and its benefits came as a result of numbness and pain. In my previous job as a legal secretary, I worked many long hours typing documents. After a number of years of such repetitive action I experienced numbness and pain from my neck to my fingers. Allopathic doctors offered a solution of anti-inflammatory drugs and pain pills which was not acceptable to me. I wanted a more natural solution and decided to try massage. After one deep tissue session, I experienced relief and regular massages became an integral part of my self-care regimen. It was at this point I realized I wanted to help others with their pain.
First I studied reflexology and reiki. Several years later I moved from Atlanta to Phoenix and enrolled at Cortiva Institute in Scottsdale and graduated in 2010. Upon graduation I worked for a national chain where I was able to practice different modalities of massage. I discovered that I liked doing customized massages that address not only problem areas and are deeply relaxing as well. I further advanced my knowledge by studying craniosacral therapy and lymphatic drainage.
I am excited to be an ‘Ohana member at Hawaiian Experience Spa. It is an opportunity to learn several fun new modalities. I love this work and, I especially look forward to the smile on my client’s face at the end of a session. Mahalo
