Massage Therapist /
My name is Wayne Sigler.
After 32 years with Verizon, with the last eighteen years as a
lineman, I decided it was time for a change. Working outside in the
elements became less and less appealing with each passing year. I
sought out and received a professional massage in Allentown about a
year prior to entering the massage industry myself. I was so
thoroughly impressed with the therapist's knowledge and technique
that that, coupled with the opportunity to leave Verizon being
offered me, was just the catalyst I needed to start my new career as
a massage therapist.
I attended The Pennsylvania
Institute of Massage Therapy, located in Quakertown, Pa,
from January-August of 2008. This institute is a small, family run
school, that pays a great deal of attention to the study of anatomy
and physiology, as well as, massage techniques. They also provide
instruction involving several more advanced types of massage and
stretching techniques taken from nationally and internationally
renowned teachers in the massage community.
Early on in my education, I had the
opportunity to attend a 3 day seminar on Orthopedic massage, taught
by James Waslaski, former massage therapist at the Atlanta Olympics
and for the New York Yankees. It was here that I discovered the
direction that I wanted to go in massage. I have taken a total of 80
hours of training in Orthopedic and sports massage from James and
have met many wonderful massage therapists from all around the
I was also fortunate enough to have
chosen a school that encouraged the use of this knowledge even
during clinical hours, before I graduated. To be able to question,
assess and treat a client with a debilitating condition and see the
relief in their face when they are once again able to move freely
without pain, is very rewarding.
