Improving Self, and Others
Her son, now 8, was born with a developmental difficulty and could not walk at first. But Nancy Muniz had taken a course in massage therapy and supplemented the therapy he received through his school with some of her own. Now, his aunt Ada Muniz said, he walks just fine and "everybody says he's real intelligent."
"We both had a real interest in helping others, and in helping to better ourselves," she added.
Toward that end, Nancy Muniz, who was working as an administrative assistant at the World Trade Center, liked to watch Oprah Winfrey's show and to read self-help books. She would also get together with Ada for the occasional spirit- and body-toning yoga class.
The two sisters even tossed around the idea of starting a physical therapy business together. "But on account of circumstances," Ada Muniz said, "I never got a chance to pursue it."
