Course description:

The Importance of Self-Care

Performing massage can be draining. As therapists, we’ve all been there. Ever wanted to learn ways to protect yourself and maintain
your practice for the long haul?

Just two years. That’s the working lifespan of massage therapists, according to recent research. Another survey indicated that 80% of
therapists who start in body work simply drop out after the two-year mark also. The main causes cited are that hands (particularly
thumbs) give out, and many therapists realise too late they don’t have the physical stamina to do the work.

So what’s going on here?

As the profile of massage in the community shifts more in line with the western medical model, health insurance companies need to see
measurable results before they are willing to reimburse your clients. While this evolution certainly represents a big step forward for
massage therapists and bodyworkers, it also brings increasing pressure on the practitioner – you – to produce and perform at
consistently high levels.

Learn to be your greatest asset, and keep it that way

Self Care for Massage Therapists and Body Workers is not about one particular idea or action that will prevent injury or burnout. It is a
complex subject with many facets that need to be examined. This includes massage specific exercises, nutrition, dynamic and static
stretching, body mechanics, client-practitioner interpersonal dynamics, and safely managing your workplace and client schedule.

This course is designed to stop you becoming one of the statistics of the massage industry. You’ll learn how to best take care of
yourself so that you can be successful in your practice, increase the longevity of your career and find greater enjoyment from the work
that you do.

You owe this to yourself and the hours of training that have been invested in your career. After all, how can you treat effectively and
enjoy your work with discomfort in your bodies and environment?
