YAY! Finally finally there is a person who can make my back stop hurting! WOO HOO! This woman totally "gets" treatment based work, but she's so damn good at what she does that it feels like a "relaxation" massage. Intense, but never painful, I'm SUPER psyched to say thanks to Tamara for joining my team!
For more on Tamara (who YOU can find at European Massage Co in Bozeman), read on!
Tamara graduated from an intensive 1100 hour Massage Therapy Program in Mitchell, South Dakota in Jan. 1996. She had a private practice in SD following her schooling prior to moving to Montana in 2000. She worked in conjunction with a chiropractor and started massage services at a local hospital, Tamara also began teaching at the massage school.
Moving to Montana in 2000, Tamara wanted to expand her therapeutic approach and worked with some local resorts to include Spa Services for a year.
