Sue Kent is Coming to UNCW April 11-12, 2018!

Sue Kent is the first person in the UK, and some say the world, to become certified in sports massage using only her feet. She has had to adapt to this type of massage due to her mother’s use of Thalidomide when pregnant. Sue’s arms are only 8 inches long and her hands have no thumbs.

What I most like about being a massage therapist is being able to help people and being able to promote their health. I am Cindy and I am AMTA because I matter.
