  • JING ADVANCED MASSAGE TRAINING 

    Rachel and Meghan from JING kick off their last thoughtful message for 2020 with a big congratulations to massage therapists for rocking such a tumultuous year! The team at JING have been so pleased to see the massage therapy community come together and in the words of Rachel's favourite mantra "keep on keeping on!" Whilst this year has thrown up lots of challenges for us to embrace as massage therapy business owners for Rachel and Meghan the key take away from 2020 has been that we need to diversify our businesses to really highlight our skills as professionals and this extends to upping our consultation game to really demonstrate our knowledge of anatomy, physiology etc and take our massage treatments to the next level! Finally Rachel and Meghan want to stress how important our practices are going to be in the near future and to wish everyone a very Merry Christmas filled with lots of well deserved R&R!.

    Emma Gilmore profile for Ask The Muscle Whisperer
    For Emma 2020 has in some ways been an incredible year. The second lockdown saw sports and remedial massage therapists receive recognition and be able to continue working and in general our industry has seen a fantastic shift and for Emma it is wonderful to see our skills be recognised on a wider scale! Despite the tumultuous times we have achieved huge amounts and there has been some interesting shifts for our industry that have allowed us to work in new and exciting ways, including with clients who are not local to us. Being able to access supervision is really crucial to Emma and the shift in our perceptions due to the lockdown has meant more and more therapists are able to get supervision as they are no longer soley depending on local networks! Emma wraps up her message by looking forward to a positive 2021!

  • EARLE ABRAHAMSON 
    Earle Abrahamson profile for Ask The Muscle Whisperer
    For Earle 2020 is best described as a year that required us to innovate to navigate the changes that were brought about by the Covid-19 pandemic. For massage therapists the year was a huge lesson, with time to reflect on what matters to us as massage therapy business owners and how we could adapt to the new situation we find ourselves in. Throughout the lockdowns the industry came together in a collective effort to receive the recognition massage therapy deserves. Earle believes that it has been interesting that through this crisis we have learnt to reflect on our practice and develop ways to enhance our work to a new level of professionalism. For Earle 2020 has been a year of hope, frustration, anxiety and anger, a year where we have been brought closer together yet driven apart and a year that has created opportunities for our industry to be elevated to a new level!

    • SUNITA PASSI

      For Sunita this year has brought a lot of challenges with many therapists being greatly affected by the lockdowns but there is hope on the horizon. Next year can bring lots of opportunities if we remain positive and continue with a self care practice so that we can give to others from a place of strength. This year has taught us that looking for an alternative income stream is always a good idea, whether that is being a product ambassador for a brand or teaching classes online. Tri Dosha have set up a course to help massage therapists navigate this change so you can get teaching self care online to your clients so that you are not solely reliant on hands on treatments for your income.

      Sunita feels that sadly our industry was largely overlooked by the government, with a lot of uncertainty around protocols and many massage therapists falling through the cracks of financial support. But through this our industry has come together and pulled our socks up and come out stronger after lobbying government for the recognition we deserve! For Sunita there has been lots to be proud of with some amazing displays of community in her town of Nottingham. This year has not broken our spirits and there is lots to look forward to in 2021!

      Carl Newbury profile for Ask The Muscle Whisperer
      For Carl Spring 2021 will be the time that we will see Massage Therapy start to bounce back! He is confident because the awareness around procedures needed to keep massage therapists and their clients safe is improving all the time. Professional associations have been fantastic at representing our interests and helping massage therapists digest information from the government and Carl stresses that massage therapists shouldn't hesitate to reach out to these organisations with any questions if they are nervous about restarting their massage therapy businesses. 

      For Carl the main lesson of 2020 has been to not take clients for granted! In good times it is easy to imagine our clients will never leave us but this year has taught us how quickly our circumstances can change! In 2021 Carl recommends massage therapists band together in their local marketing efforts and evaluate how their businesses might need to shift to reflect the changes we have seen in the wider world. For example anyone working in corporate massage might have to visit offices more often to catch workers who are now alternating between working remotely and in the office.

    Have you heard of a Mission Statement? Chances are you have - but chances are you’ve never considered creating one for your massage business.

    We often think of a mission statement as something that only the corporate world uses - but it can be really useful for us massage therapists too.
