Aloha, #letstalktouch! Today’s talk is about touch as our universal language:
👉 what does it mean that touch is the first language and the last? how do I understand it? 🙌 how much touch do you need and can lack of touch actually kill you? (spoiler: YES) 🤲 do I, educated as a psychologist, believe in traditional psychology and psychotherapy? 🙏 how massage and touch can take you where words will not 🧡 why do we need other people for our wellbeing and development? 🤩 why did I start organizing circles with massage? 😍 are you a natural-born massage therapist? ➡️➡️➡️ and about my new project: People InTouch – massage for everyone.
“Aren’t you afraid that you are creating competition?” I heard MANY times after I started teaching Hawaiian lomi lomi massage here in Iceland. Ok, so let’s talk about it, openly, honestly. I will tell you what I’m afraid of and what I want to believe business is about.
This is a recording of #letstalktouch from 9. November 2019.
Today I’m talking about long massages, short massages, full body massages and part-body massages. What are the benefits of long massage sessions? Can massage be too long? Why I don’t do “just your back”? All this and more in today’s #letstalktouch:
Aloha, #letstalktouch! Today I give you my introduction to a huuuuuge topic: ➡️ what does it mean to feel your body? ➡️ Be in touch with your body? ➡️ Listen to your body?
I translate metaphorical into literal and give you ⭐one simple exercise⭐ that immediately helps you to feel your body (but first, I explain what does it even MEAN to feel your body and why we don’t want that 🤔🙈).
Being a massage therapist sounds like a perfect job. Or if not perfect, then at least really, really good one. I help others. I genuinely change their lives for better. I have flexible working hours. I massage when I want to and don’t massage when I don’t want to. I constantly learn and develop. Every massage is different, so it’s never boring. I meet amazing people with amazing stories… all this is unicorns and rainbows I’m telling you 😉
Here’s the thing: sometimes I don’t like my job. I sometimes feel so frustrated, tired, hopeless that I seriously think about quitting. And I will tell you why. In this video I am talking about disadvantages, drawbacks, limitations and shadows of masseuse’s work. 5 reasons of my frustration, tears and doubts. Because as much as I love what I do, this is not like Christmas every day.
