Name of business: Bowling Green Massage

How did the business get started?

I have always worked in the customer service field and love helping people. In 2001, my son was diagnosed with diabetes and his doctor at Vanderbilt said that massage therapy would help with muscle cramps and helps lower blood sugar on a short-term basis.

After taking my son to several massage therapists, I thought I could do massage for my son on my own, so I started taking classes at Natural Health Institute and realized I loved it! … After completing school, I started my own business.
