Vivien was born & raised near Taipei, Taiwan. She moved to Breckenridge, Colorado in 1996, where she met her future husband, Scott. They have been married since 1997 and have two children.
Vivien learned massage therapy through private instruction and has been associated with The Massage Store since 2006. In 2008, Vivien and Scott decided to venture into the industry even more by purchasing The Massage Store from the previous owner.
Vivien's attitude, humor and personality are a major draw for many of the clients that come into the store on a regular basis. She admits, though, that it is sometimes difficult overcoming stereotypes relating to her ethnicity and the massage profession. But with a personal clientele of doctors, nurses, chiropractors, attorneys, law enforcement officers and others, anyone that knows Vivien knows how dedicated she is to her profession, her character and her integrity.
Vivien constantly strives to enhance her knowledge and skills by taking continuing education classes. Recent classes include techniques on rotator cuff release, cranial sacral therapy, sciatica treatments and more.
Vivien says "Massage is not just a luxury, it is a necessity. I encourage people to make the time for massage, not just to take care of their body, but also their mind. Often people focus on other people's needs and not their own. Relaxation and stress reduction through massage lets you re-energize your mind, body and soul so you can maintain focus on other priorities in your life. I enjoy being a part of that process for my clients. No matter who they are, where they work or what they look like, the client that is on my table is my top priority."
