When I graduated from massage school in 1985, I found myself in an awkward position of trying to grow a practice in a climate that was generally wary of it. Therapeutic massage was not understood nor sought after the way it is now.
So the irony is not lost on me that 29 years later I find myself as a Certified Life Coach growing my practice in a relatively young profession that is not really understood or in the mainstream.
Back in the early days of my massage career, my innovation and creativity help me build my practice while bringing greater visibility to massage as a needed and respectable healing modality. It was very exciting, and at the same time so challenging that sometimes I felt like giving up. I know now that had I had a professional coach to support me, someone who believed in my potential, who would have my back when I felt like quitting, would have made it so much easier for me in those early years. This is what inspires me to provide coaching for Massage Therapists.
Massage nurtures; so does coaching. When you partner with a coach
- You get an objective sounding board, focused entirely on you; your purpose, your goals, your unlimited potential.
- You begin to identify and shift the thoughts and beliefs that can get in the way of having what you really want.
- You ease overwhelm by sifting through choices, prioritizing, strategizing, and taking small, manageable steps.
- You gain an accountability partner so you stay committed to doing the things you need to do to get where you want to go.
As a Massage Therapist, you are called to make a difference in the lives of others. It’s up to you to shape your career in whatever way you want, to bring it into harmony with the full expression of who you are. Coaching helps you do that.
