Sharole Burch

My name is Sharole Kimberly Burch, and I have been working as a Massage Therapist for twenty-three years.  Many people who work in the health field have some inkling that this will be their direction beginning in childhood; however, this was not the way my path unfolded.  I had a catastrophic injury to my right shoulder in the form of a partial dislocation due to a water-skiing accident when I was 16 years of age.  I suffered from shoulder pain and massive migraines, and neither condition was resolved by the chiropractors, physical therapists, or the massage therapists that I first consulted in my teens and from whom I continued seeking treatment well into my twenties.  I was very eager to find a solution for my migraines in particular because they could become so painful that all I could do was remain in a dark room hoping no-one would bother me as any loud sound would send me into paroxysms of intense pain.  The sudden-impact thrusts applied to my neck were weakening my cervical spine and the headaches would sometimes end up worse after a treatment.  I was desperate for a lasting solution to my pain.
