A Massage From Mom

I've always believed that being a mother has to be the hardest job around. If you do it well, you really do commit yourself to taking care of someone in the best way you know how, for the rest of your life. From carrying the pregnancy, to giving birth and that's just the easy part! That's why I find it so amazing when mothers work, raise their kids and somehow find extra time for things. And by things I mean, roller derby. Roller derby in itself is a full time job. There are practices - 2-3 a week, committee work, fundraisers, scrimmages, bouts, and so on. I am always amazed that quite a few of our league members hold the title of not only derby girl, but mother as well.

Serial Mom aka The Mom I'd Like To Block, has been skating with the Long Island Roller Rebels since the summer of 2007. After suffering from a bone-breaking injury, Serial Mom went through countless hours of physical therapy, walking with a cane, and came back to play stronger than ever! All the while raising her daughter Ava and working as a massage therapist.

Serial Mom graduated from Swedish Institute in NYC and has been practicing massage therapy since August of 2005. She specializes in Swedish, deep tissue, medical, sports, shiatsu, reflexology, and pre-natal massages. She is a NYS Licensed and Nationally Certified By The National Certification Board of Therapeutic Massage and Bodywork (NCBTMB). She currently works for two spas and also has a side business.

For more information or to schedule a massage, Serial Mom (aka Linda Gonzalez,LMT), can be contacted at, 631-806-2666. When not getting a massage by this mulit-talented mama, be sure to check her out in action on the track. Serial Mom skates as an alternate for our travel team and for home team The Rolling Thundercats.

I couldn't think of a better day for this post to go up because today we wish Serial Mom's daughter Ava a VERY happy 4th birthday!! Happy birthday Ava!!
