May 18th 2011 - As a Massage Therapist you work so hard and diligently at helping people release physical pain. As an expert in human anatomy you know the exact area to target on your client’s body to relieve pain and prevent further discomfort.
You spend hours every week massaging people and restoring them to good health from the stress blocked in their body. In doing so, you are also using your own body as a healing tool and absorbing the energy that is being released by them.
This negative energy remains with you, unless you know how to release yourself of them or protect yourself from absorbing them. If your energy field constantly gets disturbed, eventually you will wear down physically and/or mentally.
As an expert in your field of work, you want the best for your clients. You educate yourself continuously to offer the best massage modalities that best suits the client’s needs and in return for your outstanding efforts your client refers their friends to you.
As part of the required continuing education for massage therapists, not only should you learn new modalities that will improve your practice, but you should also consider learning methods that will bring healing to yourself as well. You are the most important person in your business, if you break down your business breaks down; therefore maintaining your health should be your highest priority.
Consider energy healing methods such as Reiki for example, one of the most effective energy healing systems amongst alternative wellness professionals. Learning how to use Reiki on yourself will help you heal, release stress, and balance your body’s energy field, to name a few. The benefits are endless.
You may also use Reiki on your clients while massaging them to enhance the healing and relaxation process. As a Reiki practitioner you will be able to generate more energy through your hands chakras and create more heat as a result, thus making the massage more effective.
Adding Reiki to your practice will also help you expand your business as well. As a Reiki practitioner you may offer private sessions of one hour in length and charge a fee for the service as you do with massage. Fees vary from $55 up to $100 per hour depending on the location you live in.
Take some time and explore the possibilities of introducing Reiki to your business. Start by learning how to heal yourself first. Attend a Reiki Level I class and grow from there on, moving forward to Reiki Level II and level III.
