ABOUT Dorothy Miguel, LMT
Tallahassee Massage Therapist
Many times women, especially mothers, have a habit of putting the needs of others before their own.
We are told by society to raise a family, but we are expected to work as if we have none. The day-to-day stress that comes from caring for others, while neglecting our own needs causes things in the body and in our relationships to slowly break down.
At Happy Cat Pain and Stress Relief, it's my goal to help overworked women, and their families, reprogram their nervous systems and build more resistance to daily stressors.
I help them feel cared for and fill up their internal batteries so they can be present for their loved ones and community. By combining massage therapy with the principles and philosophies of Chinese medicine, my clients can receive customised treatment by someone who understands the unique needs of women and mothers.
I’ve been practicing massage therapy since 2009 when I found healing through massage after a major life crisis. I graduated from Myotherapy College in Utah. Then in 2010 my husband and I moved to Tallahassee to be closer to family. In 2019 I graduated from Chinese Medicine school to broaden my understanding of the philosophies of this powerful tradition. My approach is a combination of both eastern and western methods.
While in acupuncture school I received treatment for anxiety and overwork. I learned for myself how powerful and simple it is. I also treated lots of patients for the same symptoms. It's my goal at Happy Cat Pain & Stress Relief to help my clients regulate their nervous system and take time for themselves so they can be more resilient to daily stressors.
