As a massage therapist, but this is true for all people, it’s important to renew yourself and regularly learn new skills. If you don’t undertake these challenges, there’s a risk of your life growing stale as well as your craft. It’s healthy for your mind to expand and grow your expertise. Not only your customers or workplace will benefit, but you will also.
It is also a good break from daily life and treadmill to take time out and devote it to mastering a new skill. You gain new challenges, you get away from habits and routines. Once mastering what you set out to learn, you have the benefit of accomplishment and success.
Learning new skills can be a great way to boost your energy and obtain renewed interest in your profession and work.
Today, as this post is published, I’m sitting in the Eurostar heading to England. I’ll attend a 4 days intensive course in LaStone Therapy at LaStone UK in Chelmsford, Essex. The classes take place Thursday to Sunday from 8:45 to 5pm all four days.
The course I’m taking is called LaStone Original Body and teaches the techniques, information and theory needed to give good and therapeutic Hot and Cold Stone Massages. It’s the first step in an exciting journey and I greatly look forward to it.
