I am a Massage Therapist *cringe* – I hate using that term. But I am and I can’t hide from it – but I am so much more.
- I give people ‘balance’
- I make people understand that massage is so much more than just a rub with some nice smelling oils!
- I am setting up a program soon that is to ensure that people take care of ‘self’ – instead of thinking massage as a luxury – it is so much more important.
Massage brings balance, serenity, power and inspiration! Sound silly? I have so many clients that stumble into my treatment room, they’re tired, worn out, aching and 10% of themselves, my job whilst they are with me is to make that 10%, 100% and to make them feel ideal again, and the words I hear after 60 minutes is ‘WOW, incredible, I feel like me again!” : that phrase is what I thrive towards…I want to make people feel like that because it is so important in everyday life to feel like that ALL the time – not just after a treatment, so my program will be ensuring that people take the time for themselves every day to feel like ‘them again’ it could be anything from going for a walk in the countryside to doing something that used to inspire them as a child – I want them to do something everyday that they used to want to do for the rest of their lives – bring that inner child out – because a lot of us DON’T – we used to dream of being pilots, astronauts, famous singers – and what were we told by our elders “You can’t be an astronaut, you have to be very clever to do that, and it is almost impossible!” OK, so hopefully not everyone’s elders said this at school, it was probably our teachers (definately mine!) my parents wanted me to do what I loved, a few years ago I ended up working at a desk for 8 hours a day, running around for the boss who at the time was sat at home drinking coffee – It was only when I took the time out for myself and dug deep down to my inner child that I realised – I wanted to be a therapist when I was 10 years old. Bugger me – I did it – OK I did need that push through the door from my fantastic fiance, but I saved up my cash and in January 2013 I left the admin job and started to grow a business – for me!
So I know what it is like to sit in a job you hate, you have to hide your real self because you are around professionals (yeah right, and how happy are they being ‘professionals!?) , you work like a dog for someone who may say they appreciate it – but they don’t!! So now, I know I was put on this earth to bring out YOUR inner child. Did you want to be an artist when you were younger? What is actually stopping you from doing that? Money, other people?? Stop!(hammertime) the excuses – you have one life – do what makes YOU happy!
I want to ask you a few questions and you can answer below – no judgement, no laughing will be included:
What did you want to be when you were younger? Did you continue to do it? If not, what are you doing now? And most importantly – are you happy doing it?
Go ahead……ROCK your answers below!!
