Massage Therapists: Self-Care

May 09, 2016

Becoming a Massage Therapist requires a true passion for caring for others and that makes you incredibly special! But because you give back so much of yourself to others, it’s easy to forget about taking care of yourself. As a Massage Therapy professional, establishing a work-life balance will not only make you a better therapist, but will help you stay healthy, happy and focused. Below are just a few ways to ensure you’re always in tip-top shape.

Physical Care

Massage Therapy is both mentally and physically challenging, and can take its toll on your body. That’s why it’s imperative you take care of yourself; good eating habits and exercising will help you stay healthy. Also, nobody knows better than you about the benefits of receiving a massage – that’s why you should get one at least once a week to maintain the healthy mind and body it takes to be in this incredible profession.

Mental Care

Your mental health is just as important as your physical health, and as a Massage Therapist, it’s important you find the right mental “exercises” to stay clear minded and relaxed. From meditating to yoga to keeping a journal, it’s always smart to take time for yourself each day to relax and alleviate stress, and keep you from feeling overwhelmed.

Enjoy Your Personal Time

Everyone needs a break from the job from time to time, even when you love what you do. Embrace and enjoy your time off. Massage Therapy is a demanding career, and a day off is necessary to recover from the physical and mental strains sometimes associated with your job. Leave work behind and do something you love – your mind and body will thank you for it!

Choosing the Right Massage Therapy Career
