Why I Love Massage (3)

I don’t know if you’ve noticed (ha!), but I love talking about massage.

I guess that’s why I have this blog. Some special offers every once in a while, but mostly just a chance to talk about my most favorite thing in the world. And it’s a good thing for a practitioner to be enthusiastic, right? I love what I do for a living and that motivates me to learn new skills and improve on the ones I already have.

You wouldn’t use an auto mechanic who hates talking about cars or a chef who doesn’t care what he eats. Massage is my profession, not just a way to pay the bills, which means that it’s an important part of my life. It’s not the only part (thankfully), but it’s often the most prevalent, and the best way for me to connect with others. Not just by giving free back rubs to friends (although I do plenty of that), but also by explaining to anyone who’ll listen how muscles act the way they do and why muscles hurt and how you can make them not hurt so much. I know a lot of useful things about massage and I don’t think it’s fair to keep that knowledge all to myself.

Of course, it’s a fine line between being excited and being pushy, and sometimes I have to be careful how much I geek-out at people. Sure, I would love for them to come and schedule massages with me, but more generally I just want them to know how awesome massage is, period. Getting new clients out of the deal is really just a bonus.
