The International Teacher course continues to graduate great teachers and professionals from around the world, and we are thrilled to introduce the next one to you – Jessica Jarabek from Canada. The International Massage Association has asked Jessica to tell about herself:
I’m the Registered Massage Therapist (RMT) with over 15 years experience in the health and wellness industry providing services to a variety of clients from professional athletes to people with physical and pathological disabilities.
My interest and expertise is in sports and athletic therapy, providing bodywork and body care treatments that empower others to reach their optimal physical and mental health through tailored educated treatments.
Not only as a therapist but as a teacher it is important to me to focus on a holistic approach to health that incorporates many aspects of education to all to become successful professionals and to support healthier communities through advanced knowledge and principals learned in the classroom as well as taught in simulated environments in the community.
I chose to take the IMA approved International Teacher course because it allowed me to be challenged, share and grow skills with a unique interdisciplinary group of colleagues in a fast-paced educational and technology teaching environment.
I bring a lifelong passion for adventure education, promoting excellence in procedures and protocols, while prioritizing critical thinking and creativity. Empowering others through wellness is such an honour for me and to be able to share and educate others will always be part of my mission as a therapist and a teacher.
Massage therapy is an expanding profession and serves an important role in healing, enriching lives and our society as a whole. Being an IMA teacher will allow me to collaboratively work with others in many different ways and environments.
I feel that with my many years of experience, international assignments, and interdisciplinary lens on health and wellness I will be a tremendous asset to the International Massage Association and affiliates. Thank you IMA and everyone who has made this all possible, I look very much forward to what the future holds with setting up my very own clinic, further networking with other therapists and continuing educational courses on a world stage level.
The International Massage Association wishes Jessica good luck with her teaching.
