Student Spotlight: Cassie Edwards
This week we meet up with Cassie Edwards who is a student in our weekend program. Weekend classes meet two to three weekends a month and are a great option for those who work during the week and still desire evenings free as well as the ability to still have down time on the weekends.
Cassie realized while a junior in high school that massage therapy would be a great career choice for her. She was a competitive wrestler during her high school years. A painful back injury put her out for an entire season and massage therapy was the only thing that helped ease her back pain, and contributed to healing her back as well as it did.
At that moment, she knew massage therapy was what she wanted to do for the rest of her life. She states, “I want to help heal people with through massage.”
Cassie chose to attend Bodymechanics School of Myotherapy & Massage because of the positive feedback she received from former students about the instructors and the program.
Cassie states that she has learned a lot already – and she’s just four months into the program. She believes that attention to different learning styles is a big plus about the program.
The support from fellow classmates and instructors is proof positive that “you’re not just another student at Bodymechanics and that student success is job #1.”
After graduation, Cassie plans on a massage practice with a treatment focus. She wants to help others get relief from painful conditions just as she received help herself with her debilitating back pain. She understands that returning people to the life they want to live, full of activities that bring them joy, is the most important thing that she can do to help.
We couldn’t agree more, Cassie!
If you are interested in a weekend class, we will be offering another class in the fall of 2014.
