Hello Sunshines, I’m Golden, a licensed massage therapist, aromatherapy enthusiast natural bodycare formulator from Detroit, MI with a passion for the creative and healing arts. And soon I’ll be your favorite dancing therapist and newest team member. On your dance journey it is important to have positive people in your corner that want to see you succeed and genuinely care about what you do; that’s exactly who I am. So we should probably get to know each other better. In my next few posts I’m going to share with you my story, who I am and how Beats + Balance came to be.
As a graduate from Irene’s Myomassology Institute I completed over 625 hours of training and experience with: Swedish & Relaxation massage, Hot Stones, Reflexology, Aromatherapy , Chair Massage, Therapeutic Sports massage
With a desire to broaden my knowledge and experience I further studied deep tissue massage, lymphatic drainage, pre-natal massage and aromatherapy blending. For the past 5 years I have been using essential oils daily and making my own personal care products from body scrubs to hair oils to even household cleaners which led me to become certified in natural product making. I continue to hone my skills by offering and hosting massage services for local spas, businesses, parties, health and wellness expos. When I am not working on making Beats + Balance a success, I can be found at Be Relax Spa at LAX and Elite Othropedic Physical Therapy in Buena Park.
Although, professional dance may not be my calling dance is still a passion for me. From childhood ballet and jazz classes to now my body can’t help but to move to the beat. Trust me you might catch me bust a few moves during the session! Massage is as natural a dance for me as dance is as natural for you. Dance just brightens my day and lifts my mood. It fills me up with joy to see people enjoy dancing whether they are professional or not so I wish to remain connected to the dance community by utilizing massage to naturally complement a dancer’s health and well being.
I am really excited to present Beats & Balance Massage Studio – an urban dance inspired massage and wellness practice that is anything but traditional. My belief is plain and simple, “If you’re passionate about dance, then I’m passionate about your health.” I believe incorporating therapeutic massage with balancing bath treatments can and will aid in the overall health, relaxation and prevention of injuries for dancers or for anyone looking to achieve and maintain their highest level of performance. Adding aromatherapy and take home bath/bath body products to services makes creating a self- care routine convenient and easier; easy on you and your pockets. All of which reduces stress and that should be everyone’s main goal in life. Stress Relief. Self- Care. Injury prevention. It’s what I’m all about here so let’s flow together, and remember when the beats stop let the balancing begin.
I look forward to working with you soon,
Golden J. Roland
