What makes a good massage therapist?
I think it takes many qualities and special abilities to truly be a good massage therapist . I believe one of the main qualities of a good massage therapist is to have a deep connection in some form of spirituality, or spiritual practice. Where does massage therapists inner strength come from? Whether it be from God, or nature, or a little bit of both, I truly believe this is one of the main facets that embody a good massage therapist.
Education and Experience
Proper schooling, continued education, and training are also very essential , but it also takes nurturing hands and a compassionate heart. To be awakened if you will , to be filled with empathy and caring for others. To have great knowledge of anatomy, physiology, as well as pathology are obviously needed to be a good massage therapist, but I do feel in the hierarchy of traits that make a good therapist, it first takes good hands and a good heart that is comfortable with having that nurturing touch.
I have been a massage therapist now for 7 years, and am continually learning new therapies, or advancing my knowledge in modalities I am already trained in, but I am still learning as I continue to work with new clients and a different array of problems they deal with.
Being fortunate to be in practice in Myrtle Beach, and live quite close to the ocean. I refer to the beach as my church, where I can recalibrate and find peace within,and I hope that my clients feel that peaceful presence within me as they allow me into thier space for a short time of therapy.
Looking so very forward to this summer season, and anticipate meeting some really great people and clients as I share my gift of touch.
If you would like to book a session with a unique and talented massage therapist, please do not hesitate contacting me to set up an appointment. Although I do work solo, I do accomodate couples as well as groups for massage sessions. Whether it is to simply destress and relax, or you are needing medical massage from muscular trauma… I am trained in many modalities and customize the massage session according to my clients needs.
I look forward to meeting you all, in good health… Michael Champagne LMT.(843-492-1764)
