Hello all, Yesterday I tried a one day introduction to Holistic Massage course and found it very enjoyable. My back was aching a bit after but I am currently exploring a few ideas for a career change and is one of them. I thought about holistic therapies for a long time before I ever tried practicing them as a career. Now happily getting stuck in and trying out my ideas. I would love to hear from any massage therapists doing this for a living: is it lucrative or very tough to get by financially..do you combine your work with other therapies or other jobs? Also I imagine it would be very physically demanding.. I have been working in offices my whole life and suffered burnout with stress several times. Keen to find a fulfilling way to help people, either holistically or in a way that would also benefit my own health as I am doing it (teaching Pilates, Yoga or Dance). Naturally I am very friendly, sociable and genuinely enthusiastic about wellbeing and therapies. I also have other ideas like Teaching English as a Foreign Language (I want to live abroad) and help people. Financial reward is important to me as I have been saving to get on the property ladder however I know in the long run I am probably not used to Admin and high pressure office jobs. I definitely see myself running my own business (or businesses), perhaps with multiple income streams. Finding it hard to decide! Advice would be most helpful.
