Staff Bio: Kris Martinez
Kris Martinez is our Student Records Administrator and works in our Graduate Clinic at Adrian School of Massage.
Kris attended Hillsdale High School and graduated with honors before attending Adrian School of Massage. When Kris isn't working at the school she sees clients at Thrive Massage in Tecumseh MI. She likes to incorporate Swedish and Myo massage techniques into her sessions because she feels this combination gives a relaxing but still therapeutic massage.
What led you to the Adrian School of Massage?
I was guided by a friend to be a student and it was the best advice I ever got! I loved the people and the experience so much, I was excited to join the team when a position became available.
Do you have any advice for those considering a career in massage therapy?
Do it! But keep in mind, you have to be flexible and adaptable to many different scenarios. In one day you may see someone who wants light pressure and a relaxing massage, someone else who wants deep pressure and then yet another client who is coming for a prenatal massage. You will never have the same experience twice.
What are you hobbies?
I love to read, and watching movies is a nice way to relax with some down time
What are you favorite self care tips?
Get regular massages! Most of us were receiving regular body work for the first time as students; that tends to get pushed to the side when you start practicing professionally. DON'T DO IT! Take care of yourself so you can take care of others.
What is your favorite quote and why?
I don't think I have a favorite, I like a lot of inspirational anti-anxiety quotes and I think they are helpful and uplifting.
