Kris, thanks for the friend request. I just joined the site yesterday and I'm actually a student. I've worked as an Occupational Therapy Assistant since 06' so I have some massage experience but I'm looking forward to becoming an LMT. How's the job market out there? I imagine better than average.
Yes, thanks for adding me as a friend. I don't know how this works yet.
I also hesitated to add info about my interests in yoga, dance and meditation to my massage website, but finally did because I believe so strongly in their benefits. And, as a massage therapist I know that my clients who are active participants in their healing generally achieve better results in their bodywork. I was just on the phone this am with a client who had been seeing me to relieve pain in her back. I kept encouraging her to try yoga. Fortunately we live near a yoga studio with a very good beginner program and instructors who specialize in rehabilitation. She FINALLY dove in (after a few years!) and has never been the same. It changed her world. She's thrilled with the results. I have other clients who do very well when they combine therapies and dedicate themselves to their body's physical health with activities-weight training, running, yoga, whatever. So, I'm a big believer in the moving arts as an adjunct to massage therapy.
Loved your story about loving being a massage therapist.
Hi, I'm Michael. Thanks for adding me to your friend list. Just like you I am also trying to connect with other massage therapists around the world. Hopefully one day when I have a chance to visit Las Vegas, we can exchange, share, teach and learn from each other about our techniques.
Hi and nice to meet you too! I'm in North Vancouver British Columbia, as I'm sure you've noticed on my profile. I'm very new to the spa/massage industry and just thought it would be a good idea to talk with some others and maybe learn a bit from them. Thanks for adding me as a friend!
Nice to meet you! I am from Yuma, Arizona, and I actually just graduated. I am waiting for my lisence in the mail as we speak :) Thankd for adding me, I am excited to get to know other massage therapists from around the world as well. have a great day!
Thank you for the friend invite. I love talking to other therapists and your idea of taking that global is great. I am open and of love and service, any topic I am open to and willing to talk about. For instance do you work for your self or in a spa? I have done both.
Nice to meet you!! I agree, I like to know other massage therapist from different Countries and places,,To me is important to network with other health professionals, Keep in touch! Best regards from Miami.
Linda you control what you put on facebook. A business page can help when people search online. You can even treat it like a blog and write articles on massage. Since facebook comes up so high in searches it is better than most directories that are little more than links so the directory owner rises in search. Those are really a waste of time. Use Alexa.com to make sure you list places that are higher in rank not lower than your site. Facebook is ranked 2 in traffic so not something to ignore in my opinion. Any directory over 100,000 traffic rank will get you noticed. One I was invited to join is ranked 6,055,343. And this makes it a liability not a benefit.
