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!
I love being able to customise a treatment to help clients get the most out of their sessions at Nautilus Dublin. Sometimes the focus is to relax and reduce stress levels. Other times, it’s to relieve muscle tightness, manage pain and improve flexibility.
One of today’s clients is training for the Dublin marathon and completed a VERY long run yesterday – 30km!
To help the body recover, I combined a Swedish massage targeting the legs, back, neck and shoulders with the use of specific essential oils. If you run, you may notice the tendency to raise your shoulders, which can cause tension in the back. To help further encourage the recovery process, I also used an essential oil blend of lavender, lemongrass, rosemary and vetiver in an almond oil base.
These essential oils help relieve over-exertion with warming, pain relieving, anti-inflammatory properties and are especially effective when used during a massage.
Low Back Pain. Did I get your attention? That kind of pain has gotten mine! Like many of our massage clients, I usually suffer from shoulder & neck pain – stress does not nice things to our bodies! Recently though, I’ve become well acquainted with low back pain. It’s distracting & frankly makes me feel older than I should! Massage Therapy can be a very effective way of reducing the pain and improving your mobility. Naturally, I’m a big fan! Learn more here from our friends at the American Massage Therapy Association.
