This months Student Spotlight is Vancouver massage school student Tish Stewart. Tish was one of the first students who signed up for our school once we committed to opening in Vancouver. In fact she interviewed with me in Tumwater and considered weekend classes and making the long trek north.
Tish is a personal trainer, working with clients individually and in a group setting. She felt that massage therapy would compliment her career. She also is amazed and intrigued by the human body, and felt that massage therapy would enhance her understanding. Tish’s desire to help people live without pain and with increased mobility is a driving force in her career choices.
From Athlete, To Personal Trainer, To Massage Therapist
Tish competed in gymnastics, and was headed toward Olympics before knee injuries ended her career. From there, she went into competitive swimming. Swimming launched a new direction as Tish then became which led a lifeguard, swim instructor, and aerobics instructor. During this time, she felt herself struggling with her own pain from sport injuries and pregnancy. Ultimately, she discovered chiropractic and massage therapy.
“Experiencing the benefits of massage and living pain free; having training clients held back from soft tissue restrictions catapulted me to become a massage therapist.”
So started the drive to find a massage school.
Today, Tish enjoys spending time with my family, reading, swimming, drinking wine, going on adventures.
