It is an exciting journey for massage therapists to go to and graduate from school,Guest Posting pass licensing exams, and start working. But for some massage therapists, work can become overwhelming over time and they may experience massage “burnout”. This can cause some therapists to abandon their career due to fatigue and frustration. While this is infrequent, it is important to adopt some healthy habits in order to stay well and love your career year after year! While massage therapists want to work to help their clients and further their practice, every therapist also needs to take time to relax, rejuvenate, and avoid massage burnout.
Receive / Trade Massages
Too often, massage therapists forget to 오피순위 take the time to receive massages, as they tend to always be busy giving a massage! Burnout can be prevented by frequently getting massaged, and while it is sometimes difficult to make time in your busy schedule for your own well being, it is critical to receive massages as a massage therapist. This not only keeps your body well and feels amazing, but it also reminds you how it feels from your clients’ perspective to receive massage and helps you grow as a massage therapist.
Some massage therapists report experiencing “massage burnout” when they do not receive massages at least once or twice a month (at the very least! More is always better). When massage therapists receive massages from either a co-worker or another massage therapist at a separate practice, it helps to refresh the reason behind the desire to become a massage therapist, helps you recognize the benefits of the therapy, and gives you energy and new ideas to bring back to your own clients.
If you work in a practice with other massage therapists, it is important to block off your schedule once a week or once every two weeks to relax, stay centered, and trade a massage. Burnout can truly be avoided from even just one or two monthly sessions! These sessions do not have to be long or intensive, but should address any specific areas of concern, adhesions, or tension.
