NBA Awards Show

At the end of June I was blessed to travel with my client to New York for the first-ever NBA Awards Show. Traveling to the city that never sleeps is always a good time; especially since this trip was all about me working late hours and on-call!

Billboard Music Awards 2017

I love traveling with my clients, I feel so fortunate where my work has taken me over the years. It’s my favorite thing to do, as I get to explore a new city, meet new people and work crazy hours! This summer I have been very busy locally in Los Angeles and out of state. 

This year I was lucky enough to be in Las Vegas for the Billboard Music Awards, held at the T-Mobile Arena. It was my first time at this event and I’m so blessed to have been in attendance. There were so many amazing artists that performed, and some of my favorites were; Drake, Nicki Minaj, Miley Cyrus, Celine Dion, John Legend, Bruno Mars, Sam Hunt, and Ed Sheeran. Everyone was so amazing!

During the Billboard Music Awards 2017 I worked late nights through the early morning, and it’s becoming more and more normal for me. I love my crazy schedule, it’s what makes my life so entertaining!

Thank you to my client for inviting me to be a part of your team! 

Below are some photos from the weekend in Sin City!

Canna Massage

 

CannaMassage_MichelleRozzen

With over 10 years of massage therapy experience, I finally got turned on to Canna Massage Oil. I knew cannabis was an amazing healing tool already when ingested, so I had to try it topically in my massage practice. I’m always trying to expand and provide the best options for my clients.  So, when my friend in Hawaii suggested using cannabis massage oils and salves, I decided to try it and was soon hooked!

Infused massage oils don’t get you stoned. But they do have a way of opening up the skins sensory, and making you feel elevated and relaxed. I’ve used cannabis massage oils on athletes, musicians, and older folks.

When you combine these oils with an experienced massage therapist, the cannabis oil becomes a very powerful tool against pain.

Apply gently to the skins surface, rub it in, and allow time for the oil to take root below the skin surface, muscles and tendons. The pain will subside when you use topical cannabinoids, because they are antioxidants and an anti-inflammatory agents. It will relieve many ailments and you will sleep like a baby. I’m a fan!

Here are more reasons to get turned on to a Canna Massage Oil…

Sports Massage Interview

I’m so thankful for my loyal clientele and my blossoming massage empire. I want to share an interview I had recently because it expresses some information that many of you probably do not know about my massage career and sports massage. Check out my interview below!

Real Mom of SFV Massage Interview

Real Mom of SFV Massage Interview

 

Last week I was featured on Real Mom of SFV, a personal blog written & edited by Jennifer Miyagishima. The blog is about food, fitness, motherhood, pop culture and local businesses in the Los Angeles area & San Fernando Valley.  When Jen asked if she could interview me, of course I said YES! I did hesitate for a minute though, because this is a blog for moms, and I’m NOT a mother! However, I do provide massage services to lots of moms, and an interview will introduce me to the Real Mom of SFV community.
Check out the Real Mom of SFV Massage Interview article here. Learn about my massage career and fun journey I’ve taken along the way. You can also click here for the PDF file: RealMomOfSFV
Thanks Jen for the great interview!

Back in March I was invited onto JENeration iHeart radio show with Jen Tapiero. It was my first radio interview, and I was excited to have done it along side a friend of mine. Singer, Vernon Burris and I were both guests and spoke about How music is therapeutic!!!! As you know, I’m a massage therapist and most of my clients are in the music and entertainment industry. In the interview, I gave advice about life, how to handle stress, how massages help control stress and the mind & body. Vernon discussed his upcoming music and tour life with Justin Bieber and many other artists.

Justin Timberlake: The 20/20 Experience World Tour

It’s always a good time when I’m massaging backstage with The Tennessee Kids at the Justin Timberlake 20/20 Experience World Tour show. A few weeks ago I had the opportunity to work with Team Bassic Black, and The Tennessee Kids at The Forum.

Rock It 2 The Core

The day after Halloween I provided my massage therapy services to the talent at the Rock It 2 the Core event at Calabasas High School. It’s an annual a rock infused, charity driven yoga event empowering local youth & raising funds for Unlikely Heroes to fight human trafficking.

Walk to DeFeat ALS Los Angeles

This past weekend I took part in the annual Walk to DeFeat ALS in Los Angeles, with The ALS Association Golden West Chapter. This was my 12th year participating in the walk, and it’s a very bittersweet day for my family. On Sunday October 19th, at Exposition Park, near USC in downtown Los Angeles, I set up my massage booth. This was the third year providing massage at the ALS Walk, and I feel so honored to do so, as it’s very near and dear to my heart.

Detox Weight Loss: Apple Cider Vinegar Benefits

…a little history on ACV and all of the benefits, is that users say it will help boost energy and your immune system, it will cure high blood pressure, allergies and arthritis, help with poor digestion. There is not a great amount of research, however based on my daily intake of it over the years it does indeed help with weight loss and sugar cravings.

BlackRoll Foam Rollers

When I get out of bed in the morning I often trip over my BLACKROLL® foam rollers on my floor. They are a reminder to foam roll first thing in the morning and the last thing before going to sleep.

Do you foam roll? If not, you must start adding this to your daily routine! I highly recommend foam roller exercises for alleviating body aches and pains. I’m a massage therapist, so I have to care for my body more than most, and foam rolling is second nature to me. Plus, I have been an athlete my entire life, so massage and foam rolling have always been something I’ve always done to feel better. I’ve been rolling since college in 2000, so I’ve had plenty of experience testing out different products.

Foam Roller Exercise Fun!

Last year I worked with with Alicia Keys during their tour prep. It was an amazing experience! Since then I have worked with many bands, dancers and performers while they travel thru Los Angeles. During the AK tour prep, I was working with the dancers, band and crew; not only doing massage but also incorporating a lot of stretching in the routine I did. I also preached how important foam roller exercises can be, especially for the dancers. This blog post was written with the AK Tour team in mind.

ALS Ice Bucket Challenge

Watching all of these #ALSIceBucketChallenge is bittersweet. It makes me so happy that so many people around the world now know what ALS is, because many people had no idea before this challenge went viral. Plus watching videos of people dumping ice water on their heads is pretty funny, so how could I not watch it? ….On the other hand, it has made me tear up because it makes me miss my Dad more and more.

Eminem x Rihanna The Monster Tour

The Monster Tour hit Los Angeles last week, featuring the collaboration of two of music’s biggest superstars, Eminem and Rihanna.

I was honored to do massage backstage with Team Bassic Black at the Rose Bowl in Pasadena, CA. Today I feel super blessed having the opportunity to work with Rihanna’s band and meet so many talented musicians. The two shows were both sold out and the energy was just insane.

Surfers Healing Malibu

On June 7th I had an amazing and inspiring day, while doing massage therapy at the Surfers Healing Malibu event.

Surfers Healing seeks to enhance the lives of kids with autism, thru the experience of surfing. It’s founded by Israel and Danielle Paskowitz, after their son, Isaiah, was diagnosed with autism at age three. Most autistic children suffer from sensory overload, sensations of feeling overwhelmed, distracted and most children have serious melt downs. The ocean is a place where Isaiah felt calm and at peace.

Malibu Earth Dreams Festival

I love working locally, especially in Malibu, next to the beach, on a farm with a beautiful view! 🙂

Last weekend I had a massage booth at the Malibu Earth Dreams Festival, at the Vital Zuman Organic Farm. It was a pretty beautiful day, and I met some new clients and many festival goers.

Corporate Massage with Equis Staffing

Last week I provided corporate massage for Equis Staffing in Calabasas. It was a surprise and the employees were so thankful and happy!

Why corporate massage?

There are so many benefits of having a massage in a corporate environment. I set up a portable massage chair in a conference room or any other unused office space at your location. This ensures for privacy and makes you feel comfortable while getting a massage at work.

Dallas Cowboys Training Camp

This month I had the opportunity to provide massage therapy at the Dallas Cowboys Training Camp in Oxnard, CA. It was a great experience working with some of the best players in the NFL; including Jason Witten, Jason Hatcher and Tyron Smith. These guys work so hard, and the benefits of massage therapy for professional athletes is tremendous!

Alicia Keys Tour

Recently, I had the opportunity to work at Sony Studios with Alicia Keys, her band, dancers and production crew. Everyone on the Alicia Keys Tour was truly amazing and so talented!

I am honored and blessed to have worked with the AK TOUR!
