Signed in as:
I’m Monika Fox-Otey. I started massaging when I was still in childcare. True story. The childcare ladies would pay me in tootsie rolls. While I wish I could pay my bills in tootsie rolls, I still love massaging as much as I did twenty years ago.
Professional massage found me.
While delivering sandwiches and after deciding a four year degree was not for me, I walked into IBMC and that is where I spent the next year and half earning my Massage Therapist license.
I started my career with Elements Massage and learned a lot in those two years. For the following six years I jumped around to different chain massage studios, giving more than 10,000 massages, trying to fit into an environment that just was not for me.
In 2020, everyone’s life changed.
For me, I did something that I never thought I would ever do. I started my own mobile massage business, Comfort Zone Massage LLC. Obviously, I have not changed the name, but this plunge into something new has shifted my intention.
When I started Comfort Zone, I wanted to make people’s homes their comfort zone. What I have learned more than anything is, our body is meant to be our Comfort Zone.
I have gone on my own personal comfort zone journey. I started with fitness, added in meditation, and then was introduced to Reiki. Fitness taught me that the better I treat my body, the better my body treats me. Through meditation I learned what it meant to “bring awareness to your body”. Reiki was the bow that tied everything together for me.
My curiosity has always been the thing that drives me to try something new, and feeling uncomfortable has been what stops me from following through. Learning how to have a conversation with my body, emotions, and thoughts has been my path toward getting comfortable being uncomfortable.
I was uncomfortable working for corporations because I was not able to fully personalize all of my clients’ experiences. I am grateful for what I have learned on my journey so far and I am excited to join you on your Comfort Zone journey to see what your curiosity brings.
