This is my first official blog entry,I ask that you will provide me with some grace as this is not what I am used to doing... Massaging and trying to make the world a better place is what I do. It has been brought to my attention that as a self employed business woman, that I should be doing this.
There are a lot of things we "should be doing"... I am not naturally a rebel, but I usually feel my shoulders pull up and my face pinch when things are suggested that I "should be doing". It is human nature I guess, that dictates not liking to be told what to do. That said, I feel like I could offer insight into the world of massage and the wonders that are held in a healing space.
So this is a short blog attempt at giving you the groundwork to just who is this Michelle Moody and why I am passionate about my endeavors.
It started with a premature birth at approximately 29 weeks. I have a twin sister and remarkably we survived, even after having our last blessings said and the funeral arrangements made, we are both alive and kicking! I think starting a fragile life in the intensive care, within the walls of my incubator is where and when I began to crave touch. Touch as I now know, is the first of our senses to develop. I always had my sister and the warm walls of a womb to touch and now there was nothing. While I was married and in my 20's I received my first massage. The magnitude of having bodywork and shown compassion and grace was transformative for me. I knew immediately that his was what I needed for my soul. Not only to recieve, but to give as well. That day started and epic adventure of what is now Massage for Mommies.
Through Massage, Postpartum Doula care and Infant Massage instruction, I strive to help complete the cycle with teaching compassion through touch, love and holding space in what is an amazing time in our lives. Not just as a pregnant mother but also as a beloved baby... lets start things off right for this special being you are bringing into the world. A world where compassion, nurturing and individuality are as valued as our material things, where young parents feel empowered to make their own decisions free of judgment.
That's why I do what I do, that's why I am passionate about what I do. I am on a mission to make the planet and life more enjoyable and a better place to be...
