I’m having a bit of a wow moment. Five years ago today, I officially became a qualified Massage Therapist and started a very new journey.
In my previous working life, I was an executive assistant and worked a lot of hours supporting high level, very busy, very stressed out people. I decided that life was too short for that degree of anxiety and stress, and I decided to make a massive change.
When I see how far I’ve come, it’s truly humbling and my “work” still makes me ridiculously happy.
Even this week, I’ve had clients comment on the changes their regular massage treatments have made to their lives, beyond what they originally came in for.
One is training for their first marathon, but noticed that overall their stress level has decreased significantly at work and at home, and they feel they are dealing with issues in a much calmer, clear-headed way.
Another client, said that partially based on their first treatment, they decided to make some positive changes to their health, the biggest one being that they quit smoking.
Being a working therapist and business owner is the hardest, yet most rewarding work I’ve ever done. A massive thank you to everyone who has been a part of my journey. I’m excited to see what the next five years hold!
