The Cure for Work Exhaustion—It’s Not What You Think!

The practice of massage or bodywork requires a significant amount of mental, emotional, and physical energy. We bring our best selves to our clients—and it can be exhausting. “Hectic,” “stressed,” and “drained” describe the ethos of our times as we multitask like crazy, striving to get more done in less time and balance the demands of work, family, friends, and the goals we set for our personal development. This session is about learning from fatigue and using its teachings to examine our lives, ourselves, and what it means to bring heart to every massage without depleting our own energy levels.
