Once working in retail by profession, April felt she needed a change of vocation—and her choice was massage. And it's not necessarily something out of the ordinary, as she would massage her aunt when she was young. Up to this point, she has already worked with numerous spas and practitioners, perfecting her skills and techniques. Among a variety massage modalities that she provides, there is, for instance, the deep-tissue massage whose deep strokes she performs to induce relaxation, soothe sore muscles, and help recover from injuries. With the hot-stone massage, on the other hand, she uses heated smooth stones and hands to relieve chronic pain as well as boost circulation and metabolism.
