Therapist Highlight: Brian Shaw, LMT
Liz Garrison, LMT Sep 8, 2014
From time to time we like to highlight a popular massage therapist to let you get to know him better. Brian Shaw is one of our most requested therapists and getting a massage from him would let you know exactly why. From a specific, clinical, relaxing massage to the great knowledge of after care advice, Brian is one of the best.
I asked him several questions and here are his answers:
At what point did you decide to become a massage therapist and why?
Not until I was challenged with either finding a new position or early retirement, my wife suggested I seek a new career. I chose a new career as a Massage Therapist, since massage therapy has helped me tremendously. I wanted to do the same for others, and help them improve their quality of life.
What modality is your favorite?
I enjoy mixing relaxing Swedish massage and deep tissue to smooth out the tight and tender spots while providing a respite from the busyness we all encounter.
Tell me about a situation in which you helped a client the most?
I had a 2nd grade teacher and young mom with debilitating migraine headaches. She had tried many things to find relief. After her first visit with me, she found immediate relief. She saw me at least once a month thereafter enjoying many days without headaches.
What do you like best about working at Elements?
I feel well equipped to focus on massage to help my many wonderful clients!
What are your hobbies?
I love running and working out. I enjoy fixing up our new house and just doing things with my wife.
