Prior to graduating high school, the thought of getting a massage never crossed my mind. Not even once. In fact, it was not until I decided to look into massage therapy as a career that it did finally occur to me, and even then it was only because I was told that it was a requirement. In retrospect, it seems a little silly to think that I intended to learn the art of massage before ever experiencing it myself. What can I say? I was young and stupid.
