At Globe University-Appleton, we like to stay in touch with our graduates. Brandy Fish graduated with a diploma (September 2012) and an Associate of Applied Science degree (December 2013) in Massage Therapy. Recently, she told us about an amazing opportunity that came her way. Here’s her story, in her own words:
Have you ever sifted through your email and found a piece of gold? Well, I did. I received an email from StageHands Massage Therapy who found me on the American Massage Therapy Association (AMTA) website. StageHands was looking for a massage therapist in the area to provide massages backstage for the Trans-Siberian Orchestra in Green Bay.
I will admit I was nervous as the day approached, but when it arrived, I was excited and happy to have the opportunity. I provided table and chair massages to all of the Orchestra players, their stagehands, and their manager. Every single one of them was so nice and really appreciated me being there. Not only was I was there to take care of them and help them relax, but they took care of me with meals. It was a big opportunity to be working backstage for the biggest orchestra group in the world.
Personally, I believe that being a massage therapist is the greatest profession in the world. I love knowing that we can help our clients through the healing of touch. Our clients can be anyone from a stay-at-home mom to someone who sits behind a desk all day to a celebrity. You will never know the opportunities that could come your way as a massage therapist. I know I will never forget this opportunity and the doors it could open for me in my career.
