About Heather Wibbels, LMT
Here's the thing: I love massage.
I love giving massage. I love receiving massage. I love learning about massage. I find the human body endlessly fascinating.
How many times have you had a client, instead of greeting you with "Hello," shout, "Yaaaaaay! It's Heather calling!"? In my former profession, as a manager of software testing teams, no one was excited to get a call from me, or to be in a meeting with me. I told people about problems I needed fixed or issues in their products. Who wants to go to that kind of meeting?
Clients call my hands "magic" because I am able to find issues, stretch out tight muscles, give them back range of motion and decrease pain levels. They want to meet with me because I give them the tools to reduce their pain level and keep their bodies healthy. They are excited to get a call from me because it means that they'll be on my table in 24 hours in a quiet, dark room, with soft music with me working on their problem areas and stressed muscles. They'll have an hour where they are the sole focus of someone else's attention - where their needs are the priority.
How did I get to this point? I grew up massaging friends and family all through high school and college. After receiving my BA from Transylvania University in Lexington, KY in Philosophy and Religion, I pursued a graduate degree from Vanderbilt University in History and Critical Theories of Religion. Once I had my MA in hand, I promptly left academia to work in the software industry, eventually becoming a Software Quality Assurance Team Manager. I loved the puzzle of troubleshooting issues and reproducing problems and the constant challenge of managing teams of testers on multiple products, but something was missing. I started classes at Cumberland Institute in Brentwood, TN to learn more about massage and to leave work at a reasonable hour. And I kept taking class after class - engaged and fascinated by what I was learning. Seven years after receiving my license, here I am with a full-time private massage practice, doing what I love, learning more every day.
So here it is: I love massage. Wouldn't you rather go to a massage therapist who chose her profession because she loves massage and is constantly amazed by the human body? I would. I just wish I could be my own massage therapist. I've heard I'm really good.
