I can never stress enough how important it is for massage therapists to continue developing their skills. No matter how confident the therapist is with the execution of the massage, he/she can benefit from continuous education in a variety of ways. Training isn’t just about the technique.
So why is continuous training so important for therapists? Let’s consider the following points:
> The spa environment is always changing; clients have new expectations, spas are equipped with new technologies and techniques need to follow new trends.
> Routine is the enemy; repeated actions can cause loss of interest and lack of concentration.
> The research on mind, body and soul is constantly developing; the work of massage therapists doesn’t revolve around massage only, it is a complex job that requires emotional, intellectual and spiritual alertness.
> Sense of isolation
A spa can offer the best experience possible to its clients only by employing a team of professional, dedicated and passionate therapists. I believe that behind successful spas there is always a successful team who is able to deliver consistent high-quality service.
Continuous training allows health practitioners to keep up with the environment they operate in, enables them to stay alert, curious and passionate about the job; this means that if they are doing something that makes them happy, this happiness gets transferred to the clients by proxy. New challenges keep therapists inspired and force them to leave their comfort zone while meeting like-minded people, sharing ideas and suggestions.
