Her path to massage therapy began when she was 9 years old. Penny was struck by a truck walking home from school. She was very blessed to receive zero internal injuries and only bruising, but she didn't know what damage was building up in the form of scar tissue. She was a very active child, played soccer all through high school and into her 20s. Unfortunately, in her early 20's, Penny began to have severe muscle spasms in her lower back. After enduring physical therapy and countless medications which did nothing to alleviate her long term pain, a friend who happened to be a massage therapist convinced her to receive a massage. In one session 80% of Penny’s pain was gone. Within two years she decided to go to school to become a massage therapist and has never looked back.
