Massage has been very rewarding because I am able to help people relax or relieve the muscle aches and stress they bring into the spa.
The best part of my job is being able to know instantly that I am bringing comfort to someone. Very few occupations allow you to help others directly, or to see the benefit of your efforts while you're working with them.
If you're sitting at a computer all day there is a good chance that you have stiffness in your neck, shoulders, forearms and hands. If you lift small children on a regular basis then I'll bet that your lower back, arms and calves are sore.
People live with this kind of discomfort for years without seeking out the relief a therapeutic massage can bring. Even something as common place as job stress or as uncommon as the loss of a loved one can be comforted by massage.
Do not underestimate the power of massage to bring lasting comfort to mind, body and spirit. Human touch is an amazing medicine.
