Inspiration can come from unexpected places. An article on infant massage, for example, kindled Dawnn Russell's passion for massage therapy and led her to attend Healing Hands School of Holistic Health, where her education included more than 1,800 hours of massage instruction and practice. As a certified therapist, Dawnn draws on her extensive training and subsequent years of experience to soothe aching backs and shoulders at her studio within NC3 Fitness. Dawnn believes that everyone can benefit from a massage, so she makes it her policy to treat clients of all ages?including one who recently reached her 101st birthday. She tailors each session to her clients' needs, employing modalities such as sports, deep-tissue, and pregnancy massage as she and they see fit. Ailments such as stress, fibromyalgia, and dislocated vestigial tails don't stand a chance against her therapeutic strokes.
