I decided to pursue a career in massage therapy because being able to provide a healthy, happier life for the community has always been my passion.
Favorite part of this program was able to learn more about the body and the different types of modalities. I look forward into learning more about lymphatic which is one of many modalities I am interested in. All this modalities taught me something different , specially Swedish massage. Swedish massage is a modality that promotes relaxation, and for me, being able to release stress is very important.
The most valuable takeaway from this program is having all this knowledge and go out there and help the community.This program has taught me a lot. It has changed me as a person and how I see my body. I feel myself being more positive and aware of me and my surroundings.One of many strengths I discovered about myself is being more grounded and present for my clients. Being able to work more on my energy has helped me a lot.
I see myself using the skills I learned, in a Spa environment. I am able to work in a positive energy a safe space and help others through my healing hands.
My biggest advice for anyone looking forward to be a massage therapist is having an intention and be present in all the moments. This is an awesome experience.
