Tips for Massage Therapists on Avoiding Massage Burnout and Career Fatigue

It is an exciting journey for massage therapists to go to and graduate from school, pass licensing exams, and start working. But for some massage therapists, work can become overwhelming over time and they may experience massage "burnout". This can cause some therapists to abandon their career due to fatigue and frustration. While this is infrequent, it is important to adopt some healthy habits in order to stay well and love your career year after year! While massage therapists want to work…

Where to begin...

I want to look at starting my own business as a therapist, but I don't know where to start. I'm on information overload from looking at the SBA website. This just isn't getting any easier. I really need to start making some moves now, we are running out of money. I recently lost a job at a certain massage chain. (no mention of names, but I think I was singled out) I feel like I'm running out of time. But then, time is all I have these days... Ah the hamster wheel of life.

Follow Up!



I’m simply amazed that we here in the United States are still in a recession (or an actual depression in Las Vegas) and customer service is STILL so bad.  I won’t cover the broad topic of customer service here, but only touch on it in regards to following up with clients, patients, friends, family, etc., etc. 


Let’s say that one massage client slips through the cracks and you don’t follow up with them.  You charge $60.00 per massage.  They don’t re-schedule…

Wipe Out

Wipe Out


This post has nothing to do with the Surfari’s song, I just happen to love it.

How many times have you seen a client for a follow up visit and they tell you that they were completely wiped out after their last session? It happens often enough at my clinic that I try to ward people about the phenomenon. They will ask me why it…

The Value of Massage by Andrew Wolfe,LMP

Health care is on the minds of most people, whether they have it, need it, or don't have the right policy due to financial infeasibility, to acquire or maintain it. Unfortunately when it comes to health, if you don't invest in it now, you pay for it later, as the investment of our bodies seem to yield higher rates of health issue returns to our lives as we age. As it stands now, preventative health is not recognized under most health insurance policies unless it comes… Continue

Cold and Flu season; Increase your immunity with massage by Andrew Wole,LMP

Harvest is upon us again. It is a time to gather and take in the bounty of our labors. It is also a time of reflection, a time to look within and assess our needs; to take inventory and appreciate what we have. In the medical community and with the reminders in the media, we realize it is also cold and flu season, a time when we can deplete our immune system. When this happens not just the individual suffers but all those around them do also.

As a society we have been informed of… Continue

Water-natures natural healing remedy by Andrew Wolfe,LMP

Have you ever been told by your massage therapist after receiving a massage to drink plenty of water? You may ask yourself, ''Why is this"?

The body is mostly composed of fluids. The skin holds the fluids in as well as holding other structures together - like a body suit. Fluids in the body consist of lymph, blood, cerebrospinal fluid as well as other fluids as carriers to help in the transportation, distribution and elimination process. It thereby supports the ability to heal, restore,… Continue

Clarifying massage and insurance coverage by Andrew Wolfe,LMP

It has come to my attention the need for more education about massage therapy benefits and the coverage under insurance.

First, providership is essential for the practitioner, whom is qualified by credentialing and training.

Second, is the need to look at the individual (patient’s) plan, provision and policy of the insured, whether it be an individual or group plan. Just because a provider is listed as preferred on your insurance plan does not mean you have… Continue

Continuing Education Providers: Sink or Swim

Every time I turn around, it seems that something is on the horizon that affects CE providers–and the therapists who are obligated to get CE in order to maintain their license.  The latest salvo has been fired from the state of Maryland, where legislation is afoot with big changes in the CE environment. According to the Maryland Chapter of AMTA, the proposed regulations mean that…

Living healthier this year, my commitment.

I am striving to be more healthy this year. I did ok last year, but it wasn't sticking because I got just plain lazy. My books are fuller this year already, so I need to take better care of myself. I plan to get more exercise, eat more modestly, keep up Isagenix program, and get more massages! Here's to me!
