Hello, my bucket list friends ! I’ve talked a little bit about my job as a massage therapist but I thought that it would be a good time to give all of you a deeper look into my career. I know people consider career changes all the time. If you happen to be considering a career in massage therapy , I hope this gives you some valuable information to help you make your decision. Anyways let’s get to it !
Christina Epperly MT ( My life as a massage therapist)
I don’t think it matters what career you choose or if you go to the best school in your field ( like I did ) nothing can fully prepare you for a career until you’re there. NHI (The school I went to) provided me with excellent information and hands on experience. NHI went to great lengths to prepare all of the students for the real world of massage and I’m very thankful for that but one thing I’ve learned in life is that experience is truly the best teacher. Now, that I’m officially working as a massage therapist I find myself learning more and more everyday . My co-workers have been very helpful in sharing information with me and I’ve been soaking it up like a sponge. I’ve also got to be honest my body is not used to having to do the amount of massages in a day that I’m doing now. I’ve been sore but I can also feel my body getting stronger ! I’ve been making sure to stretch and to stay hydrated to help myself be the best I can be. I’ve been getting some great feedback from my wonderful clients, I love being able to help people relax and reduce their stress. Giving massages can also be relaxing for the therapist. I like the relaxing music and the fact that I just have one thing to focus on it’s a break from the stress of the outside world. A career as a massage therapist is challenging but rewarding. If you are interested in the topic of health and wellness and enjoy helping others you may want to look into a career as a massage therapist . Thank you for reading !
