JERI ROBERTS, RMT
Are you looking to calm your mind and get relief from the physical discomfort of anxiety? If so, I would like to help you. I focus on working with clients with anxiety disorders because I struggle with that myself. I’ve been in practice as a massage therapist for 9 years and recently expanded my knowledge and became certified in aromatherapy.
I’m a new mom to a beautiful baby girl, my little miss Amelia. While I absolutely love my new role, it was a rough start. Not only because of adjusting to the sleep deprivation, cluster feeds, and witching hours, but because I was unknowingly experiencing anxiety. I thought the excessive worry came with the new territory of being a first time mom. After all, aren’t all moms concerned about their newborn getting sick, or the risk of SIDS in those early months?....and it didn’t stop there. There was also a lingering sense that something bad was going to happen. The worry I was experiencing was extreme, uncontrollable, irrational and often leading me to worst case scenarios. Once I began I would tail spin, it consumed me.
Then came the physical symptoms, muscle aches, headaches, irritability, trouble focusing and overwhelming fatigue. There was also isolation and stigma. I felt embarrassed. I avoided social gatherings at every turn. Worrying about the timing of feeds and naps, and germy hands touching my baby were too overwhelming. It was just easier to stay in my controlled little bubble.
Does any of my experience resonate with you? If so, I can help you feel better. Living with anxiety myself, years of RMT experience, and receiving massage to help me cope has given me a unique insight and advantage to effectively provide relief from the uncomfortable symptoms of this condition.
I enjoy working with clients like you because I’ve lived your struggle and I know how difficult it can be. But I also know what it’s like to feel better and I want to help you feel the same way. Let’s get started working together to get you some relief and bring back your calm. Make the decision today that your anxiety doesn’t control you, you control it and schedule your appointment here.
