Life Threatening Condition Turned Me Into A Massage Therapist
November 20, 2018.
That’s the day we graduated.
We being my wife and I who are in our mid 50’s prospectively.
Yes, sometimes people find themselves returning to school during their mid age.
For me, it was a matter of finding a way to increase my longevity.
No, are education was not in any form of time travel but rather massage therapy.
Bottom line, my life was at risk due to BP numbers that resembled 245/125 regularly.
Being a naturopathic vegan, one would think that such issues with blood pressure would not exist.
Apparently, one would be wrong.
Instead of opting into medicating my condition I chose to shift my career from the very sedentary life of a Digital Marketer into a much more active style as a Massage Therapist.
I just took my BP and today’s AM numbers read 143/72.
Yes, I’m aware that they could be lower yet, but given that I know people that have chosen to take meds for this condition who have numbers higher than mine I am confident that I am out of the serious danger zone that I was in previously.
In an upcoming post I will share why the last thing in the world that I would ever become would be a Massage Therapist.
