You’ve Been Only a Massage Enthusiast…Until Now.
After nearly 30 years in this business, we have uncovered many truths about massage therapy that only people who run both a massage school and a massage clinic can discover.
It’s about love.
Confucius wrote, “Choose a job you love, and you will never work a day in your life.” And in our experience, this holds true.
One of the biggest truths we’ve seen proved time and time again is that our clinic massage clients (just like you!) who often make the most successful massage therapists.
The Secret is Experience
1. People who receive regular massage know what a good massage takes start-to-finish.
Drawing on their own experiences on the massage table, massage enthusiasts can more easily develop a massage experience their own clients will remember. And come back for.
These massage therapists can replicate the professionalism they’ve seen demonstrated during the intake process with their own therapist.
They understand the importance of the quality, depth and speed of touch delivered during a massage and can work toward achieving it in a more focused way.
These therapists even understand how reliable and consistent communication helps maintain a good working relationship between appointments and can implement it.
2. Massage enthusiasts know, first-hand, how bodywork can impact whole health.
Because they’ve seen the impact in their own lives, massage-lovers-turned-therapists can testify to the importance of regular massage as a part of a comprehensive wellness plan.
For example, if the goal of the wellness plan is physical fitness and the need for massage is to reduce soreness caused by a new exercise routine, massage lovers with this first-hand experience can relate to before-and-after massage phenomenon and encourage adherence.
3. Massage lovers are already massage lovers!
Aristotle wrote, “Pleasure in the job puts perfection in the work.” One of the biggest criteria for success in any job is love. To be truly great at what you do, you have to love it.
Massage enthusiasts like you already love the work. They are not only more likely to speak enthusiastically about it to their friends, family and prospective clients, they are also more likely to learn more about it, work harder at it and, with that effort, be more successful at it.
