Student Spotlight of the Month
Each month, we spotlight a different student and their desires to become a massage therapist. This month, our spotlight is on Dean Atkins.
In Dean's own words....
Thinking back on it now it's kind of strange, but I think I was always destined to be a massage therapist. I remember from the time that I was 14 or 15, friends and family would beg for me for massage. It's been one of those things that just seemed to be a constant throughout my life. Inevitably, no matter the situation, I would find myself massaging people and inevitably they would say "oh, you should massage professionally".
I've toyed with the idea of massage therapy for many years now, mainly due to the encouragement of friends and family, but the timing never seemed to be right. I had a long and successful career as a sports photographer. The months and years spent on the road wore on me, but I had a family to support.
My eye opening moment if you will, came a few years ago when my then 2 year old son was diagnosed with Chiari 1 malformation.
Massage was irreplaceable when soothing him during his severe bouts with pain in his neck and head prior to and following his surgery. it was then that I truly begin to understand the amazing power that touch has on the human body, mind and spirit. Timing again did not seem to be on my side as when I went to investigate going to school, the previous owner of Bodymechanics School had decided to close the school.
I believe things happen for a reason although we don't always understand that reason. After 25 years I decided it was time to hang up my cameras. I wasn't quite sure what I was going to do. I did some research and happened upon statistical data on the growing demand for massage therapists, so I once again investigated massage schooling and saw that Bodymechanics School had reopened under new ownership.
Call it what you will (I call it blessed) but I was fortunate enough to meet Shari and after several discussions I decided to enroll at Bodymechanics and have not looked back. With her enthusiasm, guidance and support and the education that I am receiving from her and her unparalleled staff I know I am where I am supposed to be.
