I was just teaching to a group of massage therapists and was amazed how many of them in the class
do not or never get massage. Hmmm? The excuse is they have no time.
When asked how they convince their clients they should come regularly they explained how maintenance is important, consistency is preventative etc.
When I asked what their biggest fear in their profession was????? They said burnout, wrist hurting and forgetting why they became a massage therapists.
I asked how come they don't have at least 1 hr a month to even receive a massage? I got no response.
What do you do to take care of yourself? Do you receive regular massage? How often? What are you doing to prevent burn out?
I don't seem to understand how we can market and promote massage to our clients for maintenance and prevention and we don't receive.
I'm really shocked!
What's wrong with this picture? Your comments? Thoughts?
