April L Burke
I’ve lived in Rochester since May 2005; I now call it my second home. I grew up in Grand Rapids, MI and after graduating from High School I moved to Cleveland, TN to attend Lee University. I received my Bachelor’s of Science in Business Administration in December 2002. After college, I moved back to Michigan and started working as a Payroll Specialist at the local Paychex branch. In 2005, I was transferred to Rochester to work in their 401k department. I worked my way through different positions within the company for over 10 years, but I knew in my heart that Corporate America was not my true calling. Shortly after getting my first massage in 2012, I started receiving monthly massages as I found it to be a form of relief from the chronic back pain I had from sitting at a desk for 8 hours each day. I dreamed of having a job where I could help others the way my Massage Therapists had helped me over the years. In June 2015, I decided to leave my job and enroll full time at Onondaga School of Therapeutic Massage. I graduated in June, 2016 and immediately started building Blue Lotus Massage.
I provide Therapeutic Massage using Swedish and Deep Tissue techniques and am continually learning new techniques to help aid in the recovery of injuries. I have found that my personal experience has given me the compassion to help clients seeking relief from aches, pains, and overall stress relief. I also provide Prenatal and Hot Stone Massage.
