    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.

    Hope you don't mind me being frank. Not everyone is cut out to be a MT or self-employed. Luckily it has worked out for me. It's a natural vocation for my disposition I can't say if it's a good move or not. Only you can make that decision. If you do it, put your heart and mind into it and be the best god-damn Massage Therapist you can possibly be.

    Best Wishes
