Marion became passionate about massage through her stepdad. He is a quadriplegic, and has been her whole life. Before Marion knew what she was doing, she massaged his shoulders which gave him instant relief. Massage gave him enough relief to reduce the amount of pain killers he was taking. This was fascinating to her. Marion went to college for her basics but never felt like she belonged. She started to meet LMTs, immediately dropped out of college and started massage therapy studies at Avalon School of Massage Therapy in 2016. Massage Therapy is her passion and she brings that with her to every session. Marion treats every appointment as different as each day. All clients come in with their own set of routines and expierences, and it is her honor to adjust accordingly by listening to the needs of her clients. Marion maintains variety for each individual by incorporating Thai table stretches, Shiatzu Trigger Points, and Hot Stones. Marion is enthusiastic when her clients want to know more about the tension that is being held in their muscles, and she will happily answer questions throughout. At the end, Marion gives her clients stretches to work on in their daily routines which will aid in maintaining the range of motion gained from the session.
Robin has been a massage therapist for 10 years and an instructor for 4 years. The best work is achieved with a number of techniques kept as tools in a tool belt, backed up by education. But focusing too much on learning any and every technique can cause knowledge overlaps which are wasteful in a therapist’s tool belt. After a point it’s best to refine and hone one’s application of the tools. Teaching kept Robin in touch with the basics; it forced him to stay aware of which massage principles are most important to build a foundation on. Robin uses pressure, and believes it to be often necessary. But we should remember: moderation in all things. There are certainly times where sensitivities must be respected. Overly heavy pressure is a common complaint in the industry. Pressure modulation is the most basic tool a therapist has, but one that can take practice and requires perceptive work to use in a masterful way. Robin would rather keep his work variable to suit various client-needs than to have one style that he sticks to.

My hope is to be a friendly and calming presence that guides you through your blossoming. I have been a part of the Blossom family for over 2 years and have worked with a large number of our therapists. This experience makes me confident that I can suggest therapists that can
most benefit you. Give us a call, tell me what your needs are and I’ll be happy to help. I managed Massage Envy locations for 3 years. I loved being able to watch people transform through the power of massage but I didn’t like having to sell a membership to them afterward.
This would normally disturb people’s peace and I felt awful. I’m so happy to be at Blossom because here we do not pressure you into commitments. We can just focus on providing a relaxing and healing sanctuary. I can’t wait to witness your betterment through massage.
