Self-Care Techniques for Massage Therapists

Placing a priority on self-care helps you center yourself and reduce stress. It helps equip massage therapists for the stress of running a business or managing a career in addition to the strenuous physical effort.

Time Management for Massage Therapists

Massage therapy is a demanding profession. Taking care of yourself is essential not only to your health but also to the longevity of your massage therapy career. Part of a good self-care program is learning time management skills so you don’t get burned out or injured.
