While serving in the US Navy onboard the USS Juneau on a WestPac tour, Ross received his first professional massage session, Traditional Thai bodywork, in Phuket, Thailand. This spurred him on to seek out and learn more about massage and bodywork. After receiving an Honorable Discharge from the Navy, a string of fortunate events led Ross to the International Professional School of Bodywork.
