For this episode I welcomed not one, but two amazing massage therapists from my original home state in the heart of it all - OHIO! Megan Strohhacker, with Pure Tranquility Massage Therapy has over 15 years of experience as a Licensed Massage Therapist. She breaks down the basic requirements to obtain and maintain a license in Ohio. In the second half, I loop in Kathleen Goggin who owns Corporate Oasis Massage. She sheds some light on a darker side of massage in Ohio.
