A brother to 3 wonderful siblings & a son to 2 incredible parents. My parents made the trip to America from Albania roughly 30+ years ago with the thought of making enough of a living to raise a big family. Years later, my oldest brother obtained his doctorate from MCPHS with a focus to become an Optometrist & was able to marry his wonderful wife amid the Covid-19 pandemic. My second oldest brother in recent years was able to get married to his wonderful wife, start his own thriving business, & buy his own house. As the 3rd son, I have been able to really target my passion of a career, start my own business/practice, & have the undeniable support of my whole family. My little sister who is an artist is also in the startup portion of her collegiate career & own pin making business.
As a human-being, I was always an energetic individual. Other than massage therapy, I had a passion for playing sports. Basketball was my sport of choice, but I also enjoyed playing soccer, football, baseball, & whatever other sport that was introduced to me through my life. Years later, I still enjoy going out & participating in any sort of event & can get my hands on. In recent history, I have participated in the Wolcott Lion’s Dam race twice and the C4C Ride for the Cause which is 275 mile bike ride from Boston to New York.
I was introduced to massage therapy as a profession during 2016. I always enjoyed giving a good massage, but I didn’t realize that somebody could make a living out of it until my 2nd oldest brother brought it up to me. After I searched up massage therapy schools, I was basically enrolled for courses at The Connecticut Center for Massage Therapy within 2 weeks. Once I began taking classes, I realized this is what life had planned for me. The teachers, the school, the massage therapists which were my teachers all had such a passion that I have not seen with any other profession lit a spark in me. Once I graduated I spent some time at some spas & chiropractor’s offices. After all that time, I decided to open up my own practice in Cheshire where I can treat my clients in a way that I see fit but was not allowed to me working under other places.
