Q&A with Sophia Whorton, Licensed Massage Therapist

Besides making clients happy, what do you like most about your job?

I love the joy of giving customized rejuvenation time. Every client has the opportunity for introspection and is in charge of their own therapy, so I can better facilitate their pathway to more functional muscle health. Each person is unique and offers me new insights about bodywork in my practice. I'm really blessed to have such a fulfilling career where I can explore new techniques and have fun doing what I love.

How did you get started in the beauty industry? Did you have an "ah-ha" moment in life?

Around 2006 I was completely directionless about what i wanted to do with my life. All of my friends, family, and acquaintances were in agreement that I was calm and centered, and into holistic information and application, so they suggested massage as the perfect career for me.

I was rather taken aback. [At the time], I had only received one or two [massages], which was quite a luxury for me. I hadn't thought of massage as a "health" avenue, but as a option for the elite. I took a risk and signed up for massage school when college didn't pan out for me. I couldn't be more happy with the choice I made. I am still learning so much. The new modalities and practical applications never end, which is what keeps me enthusiastic about my massage and bodywork practice.

Is there anything else you want to add that we didn't cover?

I am absolutely passionate about the organic lifestyle. I live and breathe it to the point of obnoxiousness to some. However, it is a subject that deserves more public education than I alone can give it. The world must soon see the importance of a toxic-free environment for all.

I believe with all my heart we as people don't vote at the polls, but with our dollars. This is why I will only use the highest quality organic massage oils, essential oil blends, and even organic cotton sheets in my practice. I also hand make organic exfoliating and deep cleansing salt scrubs. We all deserve the best and purest from nature, and to ensure we keep getting it, I, for one, will continue to buy organic no matter the cost. The more who join in, the less toxic our planet will end up for future generations.

"I love that surprised look that a new client gets when they first see the eyelashes on," says Katie, owner of Inspirexoxo. "Clients always comment [on] how natural and pretty they look without feeling like they are too done up." She often encourages people to bring in photographs of their ideal lashes or look, so she can emulate it.

Eyelash extensions aren't the only service that Katie and her staff offer, though. She and her team also wax away unwanted facial hair, soothe skin with organic facials, and even run a little boutique with clothing and jewelry. She likes to give her customers lots of reasons to return. "We have the best clients," she says, "They are more like friends."
