It is cliché that I would decide on naming my massage practice Forever Young, considering that my surname is Young. Under normal circumstances I would have immediately shot down the mere suggestion. I do not practice massage therapy under normal circumstances.
Back when Laura and I were searching for a middle name to give Zoë, Laura joking suggested naming our daughter, “Zoë Forever Young.” Of course, I immediately said no, and as our dialogue progressed, you know we settled on Zoë Faye.
By the time Zoë was born, I regret to say that I had stopped practicing massage therapy after an exciting career. Like many of my colleagues, I became victim to “burn out.” I went to school and became a phlebotomist instead.
Zoë got sick, and we spent three months at Boston Children’s Hospital. From the time Zoë was born, through the challenges of caregiving to an infant with cancer, I recognized the innate power of unconditional love within myself for my daughter. I witnessed the suffering she went through, and the mutual suffering she shared with other children fighting cancer. My passion for massage therapy was rekindled for the sake of my crusade against pediatric cancer.
I have skills and an ability to help people feel good. Massage has so many positive benefits. It can help facilitate the body’s natural healing abilities. Forever Young Massage & Bodywork was born amongst the suffering brought on by cancer. Forever Young was born with the mission to help people feel better while at the same time supporting pediatric cancer research. 100% of the profits will be donated to organizations doing the best work to stop cancer from hurting our children.
If you are interested in supporting my mission, please call to schedule a massage in the comfort of your home at your convenience.
