Chris Miller is an instructor at Blue Cliff and a manager/therapist at the largest massage business in the nation, Massage Envy. His path in the Massage Therapy field began on the table as a client. Years of wrestling and martial arts practice had left him looking for healthy ways to relieve pain and increase performance. In Massage Therapy, he found both. Experiencing the benefits of massage had a profound effect on him and sparked his interest in providing this experience to others. Initially, he went to school for Massage Therapy in Orlando, FL in 2004, and for several years maintained a practice that was a little more than a hobby. Chris moved to Mobile, AL in 2011 and was introduced to Blue Cliff Career College. In addition to tailoring a program to meet my specific needs, Blue Cliff provided top-notch instruction and a backdrop of support that lasts to this day.
