Happy January 😄

I just joined this team, as I am a student and am so looking forward to the exciting adventures that touch therapy will bring me to.

I'm slightly older, lol. I have three children 17, 14 & 6. One at every stage... Sometimes I add my husband into the mix of children, because he is just fun to be around.

I am looking to regain the health I had, and now that I am learning massage I truly understand the importance of self care, and for me that is stretching, eating better and shedding about 70 pounds.

I know this group is a bit quiet, based on the posts --- but I need the accountability and will be posting as often as I can.... No my goal is daily.... I need to stop giving myself a way out.

So cheers to being stronger today than yesterday, smarter in choices that affect my body...
Be blessed. emoticon

We have never been called to be more than who we are..... Be yourself

HI!

"Tell us a little about yourself:"
Okay, I think I can manage to do that!

how long have you been a massage therapist? or are you currently going to school to become one?
I have been a massage therapist since 2007. I work part time for myself doing outcall massage and sports and injury massage on location.

what type of massages do yo prefer doing?
I love doing trigger point and structural integration, injury massage... I also enjoy reflexology and accupressure. There really isn't one that I do not like doing.

What are you currently doing to become a fit, healthy and Successful Massage Therapist?
Making the time to come to sparkpeople for starters! Working on kicking my cola habit, drinking more water, and getting more movement.



Service is love made visible.

Hi I am going to school to be a massage therapist and graduate in 165 days! Not like I'm counting or anything hahaha! Anyway I am currently in all mean listed as Obese. However I find it is hard to share the healthy lifestyle I want to show people about if I am not even looking like a healthy person. I am trying to get myself back into shape so that when people see me as a person they will think I live a healthy lifestyle and I will be living a healthy lifestyle.

"Tell us a little about yourself:"

Okay. :-)

"how long have you been a massage therapist? or are you currently going to school to become one?"

I finished certification in November, and have been working on becoming nationally certified, as well as licensed in my particular city.

"what type of massages do yo prefer doing?"

I enjoy muscular therapy and deep tissue the most!

"What are you currently doing to become a fit, healthy and Successful Massage Therapist?"

Working on losing weight, getting strong and flexible, and making sure that I include stretching as part of my workouts. Also getting regular massages myself!

"You can add anything else you would like to share with us..."

I'm glad to see us represented here, so many of us working on this link in the Wellness Continuum!

Hello out there! I am just coming back to SparkPeople after about a year of avoiding it.

how long have you been a massage therapist?

About 4 years. I'm at a turning point in my career, time to move on from where I'm at and branch out on my own and go more specialized I think.

what type of massages do you prefer doing?

I have a hard time sticking to just one modality for a whole session. I jump around and mix and match as I think applies to what I'm feeling in my clients. But I like sports, stretching and rehabilitation modalities best.

What are you currently doing to become a fit, healthy and Successful Massage Therapist?

I am doing a boot camp with my sister 3 days a week. It's great and I love it! I really feel that my weight is holding me back. It's hard being over weight and talking to people about taking care of themselves. I have struggled for many years on and off with my weight and I know the battles that my clients are facing. So I'm motivated to get myself into shape and prove to my clients that they can do it to, I do take my health and wellness seriously and so take theirs seriously as well.

Hi everyone! I am new to this forum & the SparkPeople.com pages. I am still learning my way around but I like what I see.

How long have you been a massage therapist? Or are you currently going to school to become one?
*I am in the last 19 weeks of massage therapy classes! I am looking forward to graduation, taking the licensing exam, and starting down my new career path.
It will be a little bit of a scary step since I've been working in a completely different field for the last 19 years but I am hoping for the best.
I enjoy getting to know people who are in the massage therapy field & have tips, tricks, and info they can share with the "new kids".

What type of massages do you prefer doing?
*I have learned a little bit of various modalities in school & I look forward to taking some continuing ed classes to learn methods that can help with sports related injuries. I'd like to work in the sports/fitness industry.
I also have an interest in equine or companion animal massage. Does anyone know anything about this as a career path? I was thinking of doing it as a "side job" or donating time to a sanctuary/shelter.

What are you currently doing to become a fit, healthy and Successful Massage Therapist?
*I have decided to try tracking my food intake and purchased a heart rate monitor, so that I can further my fitness goals.

Hope you have a great day!

Hello My name is Katie

I have been a licensed massage therapist for about 12 years. I focus mostly on chronic pain and sports massages. I have worked with international world class athletes but I enjoy helping people who hurt. Their eyes light up when they find they don't have to feel the pain. No greater reward.

I am also a registered nurse and work in public health. I have incorporated infant massage in my classes with new parents. It is such a non threatening way to teach parents about their little ones.

I have owned my own business for the whole 12 years and have the business part down to a science. I am not taking any new people as I want to balance home and work. I started having a 3-6 week waiting list and decided to start referring my people.

I am certified in Ashi, Muscle Release, Infant Massage, Pregnancy Massage, and Therapeutic Touch.

Thank you,
Katie
