Libby Nichols. Massage Therapist
License Number MT044934.
I have been a massage therapist since 2005. My favorite service is deep tissue therapeutic massage. I like to see the session-by-session improvement that occurs and watching the aches and pains of my guests disappear as time goes on.
I entered the world of massage when I was a young teenager. My sister had opened her own salon and spa, and from then on, I became very familiar with the world of luxury and style. Not that I am stylish myself, but I can at least spot it.
It hit me when I was a junior and senior in high school that maybe this is something I should pursue. I found myself massaging fellow teammates on the sidelines and during timeouts of athletic games. I was giving hand and arm massages before English class and discovering my own way to relax and let go of stress.
In November of 2004, I graduated from The Austin School of Massage. I then worked for my sister for one year and had plans to work in a hospital or physical therapy setting. But somehow, that never came to fruition. I then went to work at Massage Envy in Round Rock, Texas where I was awarded Massage Therapist of the Year in 2006 for central Texas. I continued to work there off and on until December of 2014, when I then decided to work closer to home and attempt to own my own business. Can I tell you that it has been great!
Why did I wait so long? I absolutely love owning my own small business. And after 12 years, I love being a massage therapist more now than ever.
