Are you a practicing massage therapist and feeling some of the pressures of isolation, burnout, or physical discomfort from the work? Could you use some tips on self-care, exposure to new techniques, inspiration and support from peers?
This meet up would be a way to support each other with a few focal points. We can talk, work, demonstrated, watch short videos, stretch, inspire each other. All ideas are welcome.
This can be an isolating profession. I think we all struggle at times with these topics. Let's come together to share ideas, demonstrate techniques, and build a pool of knowledge that will help us continue this amazing work.
A monthly meeting that rotates among different locations might work, although I'm happy to host. I live in Emeryville, which is central to the Bay Area. We can certainly start at my place. If it seems popular, we can look for a space to rent.
Remember: you do important work in a highly specialized field. It takes a special type of person to be able to connect with, related to, and touch others in a helpful, healing way. Let's nurture that and find ways to grow it.
When: One Wednesday per month 7:00- 8:00ish Where: to be determined
