Q. What at first interested you about massage?

I have been interested in health, well-being, fitness and yoga for a long time. I am attracted to learning therapies that bring balance to the body, mind and spirit. I was drawn to massage because the benefits of massage is extensive since working on the physical body is not only having a healing impact physically but also mentally, emotionally and spiritually.

I find the theory fascinating and interesting as massage has been practiced for thousands of years and realise its effectiveness of facilitating the healing process.

Q. What at first interested you about massage therapy?

I initially became interested in massage whilst recovering from a chronic illness.

This spurred me on to want to learn more to be able to assist others to move through their trauma

NHA Graduates – Interview with Sherrill Wright

January 10, 2012

Q. What at first interested you about massage?

I was working in a very stressful job and needed a change of direction. Had no idea what that direction would be, but so many “coincidences” led me to massage and Natural Health Academy. Not least was a visit to a psychic who said I should be a massage therapist, and I finally started stopped laughing and listened to the universe.

It was so totally unexpected as I had only ever recevied one massage in my life and wasn’t into “touchy feely”. How wrong can you be?
