Hello! My name is Dianne Schossow, and I am thrilled that you are visiting my website. I am a Licensed Massage Therapist with over 1,000 hours of experience who started on the journey of holistic research, chiropractic study and the study of nutrition in 1978.
In 1981 I had a freak accident and fractured my skull, damaged my left jaw joint and severely injured my neck. Because of this accident, I was bedridden for several years taking multiple types of painkillers, anti-inflammatory medications, and muscle relaxers, steroid shots to my head, face, and neck, in addition to having seven separate jaw surgeries. Still, the damage was so extensive I was told that I might not be able to hold my head up again.
Although never prescribed physical therapy, through my earlier research I knew that weak muscles need treatment with more than just drugs. After years of searching, I found Pam, a great physical therapist who agreed to treat me. Pam began her task by thinking outside the box and with time and much therapy my neck was getting better.
After years of being unable to lift a coffee pot, comb my hair, and zip my pants, I knew that I needed to treat other individuals, as Pam had treated me, by becoming a massage therapist and thinking outside the box for everyone’s specific issues.
