Prior to receiving her license as a Certified Massage Therapist, Hamdan accumulated 500 credit hours of formal education. As a health professional, she continues her education in the advancing techniques and therapies related to her career field, and she continually fine-tunes her skills. While clients receive individual treatment regarding their health and wellness, ensured at all times are complete respect, confidentiality and privacy.
Innumerable benefits can be reaped through massage therapy. Wanting relaxation is the reason most people seek the help of massage therapists. However, many people have physical issues that are helped by massage. Some include everyday physical stress, mild injuries, general aches and pains, as well as headaches. Others may suffer from chronic pain, various pathologies, bodily disorders and conditions relating to surgery. “Massage may have a positive impact on any of these issues,” says Hamdan. Little things that happen to our bodies on a daily basis can become bigger problems if left unattended. Hamdan suggests obtaining treatment at the first sign of trouble.
Hamdan says she strives to provide a warm, comforting, nurturing massage experience for each client while maintaining the highest professional standards. She welcomes the opportunity to meet and work with anyone wanting to experience the benefits of massage. Maximum wellness is a goal for both her and her clients.
Chair massage is also available, and Hamdan is willing to travel to many locations to provide short sessions of stress relief for either a few people or a crowd. Whether for bridal parties, business meetings, doctors’ offices or social gatherings, chair massage is a great way to make any location or event one to remember.
With the holidays rapidly approaching, many on your gift list may enjoy therapeutic massage gift certificates. While they are great as both under-the-tree gifts and stocking stuffers, Hamdan’s gift certificates are sure to please anyone. Also available is a gift pack that includes five massages at a greatly discounted price.
