Q: What inspired you to be a massage therapist?
I got a job at the front desk of a spa and was introduced to massage. I loved the holistic approach and knew it would be a perfect fit.
Q: How long have you been doing massage?
There's always more to know.
It's a leap that I would encourage everyone to take but it's challenging because there is additional learning that needs to happen in order to be a success.
You can be the best massage therapist technique wise, but if you don't learn to be a business person as well, things can be overwhelming.
There are lots of good online programs as well as in person programs out there. Check out free resources for small businesses and read books on ethics. Find a mentor and be open to receiving help.
