Hi! My name is Sandy Chase. I grew up around Gray, Georgia. I graduated from Jones County High School in 1987.
I moved to Winder, GA (near Athens) years and years ago. I have one daughter, Samantha. She graduated from WB High School and is currently attending Columbus State University where she is studying music education.
I moved back to Gray two years ago and am really excited to open a Massage Therapy business in my hometown.
I became a massage therapist almost 10 years ago because I was looking for a natural way to treat some muscular problems that I was having. Being an enthusiast of karate and horseback riding had left me feeling years older than I actually was. I didn’t want to take pain killers or muscle relaxers prescribed by doctors and sought a homeopathic remedy. I found the perfect treatment through massage therapy.
Once I fixed my problems I decided that I wanted to help other people with their muscular problems. I finished massage school and went to work for several different Chiropractors. At each place that I have worked, I have learned new techniques for medical massage, as well as advanced stretching and relaxation techniques.
I have taken many continuing education classes and obtained a diploma denoting that I have successfully completed all training necessary to be designated a Certified Medical Massage Practitioner (MMP). I went back to college years ago at Athens Technical College and at North Georgia State University in order to study advanced Anatomy and Physiology, Chemistry and Biology classes. I graduated from Middle Georgia State College with a Bachelor of Science degree in Psychology. I am currently undertaking plans to receive an ND diploma for a Doctor of Naturopathy program and to become certified in Nutritional Counseling.
Additionally, I recently made plans to teach a couple of continuing education classes in various subject matters, such as Prenatal/Pregnancy Massage and Sports Massage. My long term goals are to open a School of Massage that focuses on medical massage modalities. By working directly with Chiropractors, Doctors and Physical Therapists I intend to create a program that will develop highly marketable skills for graduates.
I believe that massage therapy is an invaluable resource for specific soft tissue injury correction and as more people become educated regarding the benefits of legitimate massage the field will grow and become respected. I am always willing to come to groups and give free talks and mini-seminars about the benefits of massage and the different types of massage that are available. If you would like for me to come and talk with your group, please give me a call anytime and we can make arrangements.
I look forward to this next chapter in my career and meeting new friends, as well as, becoming reacquainted with old ones!
