If you are thinking about opening a massage therapy business there is one thing that you need to include in your budget. Sometimes these contraindications can be so absolute that a massage is not appropriate at all. Shiatsu massage has its origins in the Chinese beliefs of Ch’i (circulation of subtle energy) through meridians or passageways throughout the body. Massage stimulates the brain to produce endorphins, the body’s natural mood enhancers and pain suppressors.
Massage can rejuvenate your body and your mind. On the other hand, it is the responsibility of the client to communicate with the massage therapist in a manner that allows the therapist to provide the service in a manner that puts the client at ease. A good massage responds to the mother, giving her more pressure when she needs it and less when she does not.
A therapist could be perceived as taking advantage of a client who might be in a vulnerable state due to stress or physical ailment. Heated stones covered with oil are then used by the massage therapist to massage and work the muscles of the body. The benefits I get out of massage are an addition to all the other things I do to reclaim my life from Multiple Sclerosis.
Before beginning a massage, clients should be evaluated by a physician, since it is outside of a massage therapist’s scope of practice to diagnose a Baker’s cyst. The massage therapist can ask a client to leave for not respecting their boundaries or for any various reasons discussed.
The point I’m trying to make is that massage is a form of touch and if you have a problem with touching people per se, you need to overcome this to reap the benefits of massage. People from lands in the northern hemisphere are far less touchy-feely than people from warmer climes; however, they are more likely to cuddle and stroke their cats, dogs, and horses.
