About me…the RMT

 

My name is Sheila Hobbs. I am a Registered Massage Therapist. In 1999 I began my training and it was the beginning of a profound shift in who I was and how I saw my world.

I was someone who was always more comfortable in my brain than my body.  More at ease with “I think” than “I feel”.  Being focused on the body and how it works for several hours a day, and having your hands on bodies often, you begin to learn to think in “I feels”.  My training program expected us to articulate what we felt, both as a provider and a recipient of touch.  That allowed me to find a way into my body.

What a wondrous way it has been. I not only found the voice of my body, but my ever active brain found a fascination with the human body and how it works – and how it sometimes doesn’t.  This is what feeds my continuing enthusiasm for my profession and encourages me to explore new modalities and applications that allow me to better help my patients.
