Hi, thanks for stopping by! My name is Jessica May Tang and I am an occupational therapist and ergonomist who decided to begin her dream life early on. I graduated from USC's MA program in Occupational Therapy and became a licensed occupational therapist in July 2014 and founded my private practice, DAMON Lifestyle Therapy, last year in March, 2015. Since then, not only has my practice grown, but my business skills, networking skills, and occupational therapy skills also continue to grow each day. It's been a tough year learning how to start my own business and experiencing all the ups and downs that come with it, but I couldn't have asked for anything better in 2015. My passion to help others build the lifestyle that they want and to create and achieve the goals they need to get them there has gotten me here today. Through my jobs as an occupational therapist at a community hospital and an outpatient neuro rehab clinic, I discovered the there is a gap in carryover when it comes to providing treatments, exercises, and solutions to patients. Many clients understand the treatment at the time, but when asked whether they went home and continued the treatment, the answer is often no. So I decided to come out on my own, in addition to those two jobs, to work with individual clients out in the community, i.e. school, workplace, home, so that the treatments and techniques that I apply can be directly applicable.
Since the profession of occupational therapy and my practice in the health and wellness sector is largely misunderstood, I am hoping to use this blog to share common healthy and happy lifestyle tips and suggestions as well as my clinical reasoning in treatment. I hope you enjoy! I also welcome any and all feedback, so if you have any questions or suggestions on topics you would like to hear about, please write me a comment!

All the best,
