to be scared. It's not okay to let that stop you.
Practicing massage and bodywork outside was always a dream that I had. In that dream, I envisioned coast line, light breezes and the power of nature influencing the peace that comes with a bodywork session. But I was scared. I wasted a decade letting my fear and others confusion of logistics stop me. I would be lying if I said I had it all figured out. The truth is, I hope people keep coming up with new locations that will challenge my mind on the logistics; Because now I know that it is my job to figure it out because it's my passion. That's why I do what I do and you do what you do. So, name your spot and leave the logistics up to me. (Don't worry. We have an inside location if you're not ready to take the fresh air leap with us just yet.) In Wellness, Stress Relief and Love, Hollie Bahr

It was in the Caribbean that I experienced the power of water, wind and natural elements in the spa world. Except I didn't want to just be lying on the table; I wanted to be immersed. I wanted to live in that world. I signed up for Massage Therapy school in 2001 but didn't begin my own practice of massage therapy until 2004.
It took over a decade to come to terms with the fact that it didn't matter if anyone else could figure out the logistics of incorporating the natural elements in a bodywork session. It is my passion so I welcome the challenge of new areas. You don't have to worry about how things would work. You just have to be open to a massage or bodywork session, name your location and if there is a way to make it happen within reason, I most certainly will.
It is my belief that no matter how unsure of the logistics one might be, if there is a will...
