After the Certification: Where Massage Therapists Work

You have reached the end of your Massage Therapy Program – so what’s next?

Massage therapists have a large variety of settings in which they can work in. We offer our students diverse classes so they can discover what types of massage they like best.

One of the most important benefits of being a massage therapist is the amount of work environment options available. Massage therapists can work in any niche field of healing of their choice. Every work setting will provide a different experience as the needs of clients differ.

A few types of environments that massage therapists may work in:

 

Fitness Centers

Massage therapists have the ability to work in fitness centers with athletes of every kind. Sports massage therapy techniques treat a variety of clients ranging from the moderately active to the serious, competitive athlete. Therapists use deep, invigorating massage techniques to enhance the performance of athletes at athletic events or prior to weight training.

Spas

The most common places you will find massage therapists are in spas. Although spas seem relaxing for the client, that is not always the case for massage therapists as it can be a fast-paced environment. Working in spas allows for many types of massage techniques to be utilized depending on the client’s needs. Some places will offer set schedules while others are based off an appointment.

Healthcare

The need for massage therapists within healthcare environments is consistently growing. Whether it is in hospitals or rehabilitation centers, patients can heal much quicker through massages. Working in this environment is different than most settings because you are working with a team to treat patients. Self-employment options are limited when working in healthcare.

 

Although there are so many different environments in which a massage therapist can work in, the ultimate goal for all is to heal their clients. Our Massage Therapy Program allows you to choose your classes based off of preference and convenience, so that you can learn and practice the techniques you enjoy most.

Our fall schedule has been released, see what courses we are offering at each of our locations here.

Morning Routine: 5 Great Ways to Start Your Day

Most people can agree that mornings can be hectic from the moment you open your eyes. With so many things to do, we often find ourselves with not enough time to get it all done. The days can feel overwhelming before they have even started.

But don’t be discouraged; you have the power to transform your day from chaotic to productive through healthy morning habits.

Our Holistic Health Practitioner Program  trains students to connect the mind, body, and soul to build a healthy lifestyle. The courses included in this program provide insight on practices that will bring balance to your body. Implementing morning methods such as these helps our students promote overall wellness to their clients.

 

Here’s how you can start the day with a boost to your energy and mentality:

Stretch

A morning stretch can do wonders for your mind and body. Stretching improves posture, boosts energy levels, and reduces muscle tension.  A couple of minutes of this can ease strained muscles and get the blood flowing to your brain, preparing your day mentally and physically. Get yourself moving right away to enhance your productivity.

Make Your Bed

There’s a reason mom always told you to make your bed!  After a long day at work, a messy space is the last thing you should come home to. Don’t end the day as hectic as it began. Start small by making your bed the moment you wake up. As simple as this task sounds, it may bring you the most beneficial outlook on the day ahead of you. Making your bed will de-clutter your resting space and decrease your stress levels.

Set Goals

Incorporating mindfulness into your daily life is something we encourage all of our students to do at Healing Hands. One way to do this is by determining your attitude for the day through setting goals. Daily goals give us the ambition to get our work done and feel good about it. Take some time before you go to bed to think of your goals for the next day. Waking up with those objectives in mind will bring motivation to any aspect of your life.

Fuel Yourself

Is breakfast really the most important meal of the day? Yes! Your body is like a machine- the better you take care of it, the better it will function. Be kind to it by eating healthy, energizing food in the morning. Give yourself a boost by incorporating foods like Greek yogurt and bananas into your morning meal.

Soak up Sunlight

If you are like most of us, you spend a good chunk of your day indoors. Take a moment to go outside and embrace the natural sunlight and fresh air your body craves. That vitamin D can do wonders for you.  Try this by choosing to set your phone aside and drink your morning coffee in your backyard instead of your kitchen. Just a couple minutes in nature will ease your worries and bring clarity you need to crush the day.

 

Creating a holistic lifestyle starts with little steps like these. You will notice a positive transformation once you begin to make mindful decisions about your health and wellness.  

If you are interested in taking courses for personal enhancement and growth, enroll today.

How Massage Therapy Training Boosts Self-Esteem and Self-Confidence

“Self-confidence and self-esteem aren’t qualities we’re born with” said Harmony Curtiss, Director for Healing Hands School of Holistic Health (Healing Hands)- Laguna Hills.  “The belief that you are good and worthy of respect from others (self-esteem), and a belief in your ability to meet challenges (self-confidence) is an ongoing process. Fortunately, much can be done to change both for the better. Below is a list of concrete ways our Massage Therapy Training Programs help students gain a sense of competence, enhances their self-image and boosts their self-confidence”, she added.   

Promote Health- Be Excellent to Yourself!  As a leader of education in the Holistic Healing Arts, Healing Hands is in the business of advocating for whole health, mind, body and Spirit.  By educating students about Anatomy, Physiology, Massage, and Body-work techniques, Healing Hands’ Instructors empower them to facilitate healing and promote optimal health for themselves and clients.  Through lecture, demonstration, and lots of individual guidance, Healing Hands Instructors help students develop a sense of competency.

Try something New!  Sometimes the familiar path gets a little too comfortable and we can fall into a mindless routine.  Learning a new skill, like Massage Therapy can be invigorating.  Learning massage with a group of like-minded people can make you feel alive and enthusiastic again.  Knowing how to provide immediate therapeutic relief from stress, pain and injury is a skill Students can be proud of.  Massage Therapists experience a a gratifying sense of purpose. Professional pride and a sense of purpose boost self-confidence.

Move Your Body!  The physiological effects of joint movement, muscle exercises, whole-body stretching, Tai Chi and Yoga practice are  beneficial at any age.  Regular workouts boost your sense of well-being. They also contribute to self-esteem as you feel a sense of accomplishment. Students can count on getting plenty of exercise at Healing Hands.  In addition to the full-body work-out they get when giving a massage, all class includes an instructor led, full-body warm-up segment. 

Celebrate All Successes!  Rather than wait to celebrate only big successes, acknowledging small accomplishments can be very satisfying, reaffirming and prepare you for even greater challenges.  At Healing Hands, our Instructors provide the guidance that allows students to master basic skills before progressing to those more challenging.  By encouraging students to build on their successes, students move beyond their comfort zones, gaining confidence in the process. 

Groom Yourself and Dress for Success!  These are two strategies that can instantly, enhance your self-image, boost confidence and brighten your mood.  Taking time to groom yourself and address your personal hygiene is a must for all Massage Therapists in training. Working closely with others, requires conscientious attention to their breath, body-odor, hair-style, nails, and cleanliness/neatness of their clothes and over-all appearance.

Healing Hands has been serving residents in SoCal for over 26 years.  Boasting more than 80 Massage and Holistic Health courses and two Certification Programs, Healing Hands has prepared more than 7,000 students for rewarding careers.

What Meditation Can Do For Your Overall Health

While there are countless ways to promote your health and wellness, people often overlook the importance of meditation. If there is one thing you should be doing daily to remain healthy and happy, it is meditation. The power of your mindset depicts your outlook on life. So why aren’t we trying harder to train our ways of thinking through meditation?

One of our main priorities at Healing Hands is teaching our students how to maintain a balanced and healthy life. An essential piece of this balance is a healthy mind. We teach meditation practices to our students so they can create mindfulness for themselves. Because this type of practice can influence one’s life so heavily in a positive way, they are shown the importance of meditation in their courses and are encouraged to practice outside of the classroom.

We believe meditation has the ability to heal your mind, body, and soul- here are a few reasons how:

Reduce Your Anxiety 

Anxiety is no simple struggle, and everyone experiences it in some manner. It leaves our minds and bodies feeling chaotic, confused, and exhausted. One of the best ways to eliminate this feeling is through meditation. Mindful practices will give you the ability to control your thoughts, even in ways as simple as breathing. By activating and training the area in your brain that regulates your thinking and emotions, the feelings of worry begin to diminish. Let yourself truly live in the moment by meditating to feel your anxiety fade away.

Elevate Your Mood

You may believe the only way to get those “feel-good” chemicals in your body flowing is through exercise, but that’s not the case. Meditation practices increase the levels of serotonin and endorphins in your brain, leaving you feeling happier than you began. It allows you to transform your mindset in order to get rid of those negative emotions, giving you more room for lasting positivity in your life. Once you tune into this way of thinking, you’ll notice your ability to make rational decisions will become easier, and you will be happier.

Gain Self Control

Do you ever feel as if you have no willpower? Meditation might be a good way to retrain that! It activates your anterior cingulate and prefrontal cortex; which are the parts of your brain that are connected to self-control. Disciplining your mental weaknesses requires practice, and meditation is the perfect way to train your brain. Meditating will give you the strength to resist those negative thoughts or temptations you may be facing.

Decrease Your Stress

Meditation lowers the amount of Cortisol- the stress hormone- in your body. If you ever feel that the pressures you are facing are too much to cope with, allow meditation to clear up space in your mind. This will give you the opportunity to prioritize your tasks and calm your nerves. Being able to organize your thoughts through self-reflection practices will bring clarity and peace. If you want to discover more ways to reduce your daily stress, check out this blog post

 

When you begin to put your walls down and let healing energy in, you will notice a positive shift in your mood and thoughts. Meditation is something everyone should incorporate into their lifestyle, and it’s so easy to start! You will be surprised at how just a simple 5-minute practice can enhance your life.

Our Holistic Health Practitioner Program trains students to recognize the connection between the body, mind, and soul through practices such as meditation. Learn more about this program here.  

Massage Therapist Instructor, Denise Fultz, Promotes Benefits of Reflexology

We couldn’t be happier for Staff Instructor, Denise Fultz, whose article “Reflexology” was recently featured in the Spring 2018 Issue of California Current” said Paula Curtiss, Founding Director for Healing Hands School of Holistic Health (Healing Hands).  Denise is a dear friend and a talented, multi-subject Instructor who has been with us for more than 20 years.  To have her expertise recognized by the American Massage Therapy Association, is well-earned honor and an occasion to celebrate.  Congratulations Denise! Thank you for your dedication, and for your advocacy of the Holistic Healing Arts“, she added.

The article Paula is referring to shares a brief history about Reflexology and specifics about how it works.  It outlines the general health benefits of the modality, like its effectiveness in reducing tension and inducing relaxation. Denise also shares anecdotal stories of her experiences using Reflexology in class, with students as well as with Hospice and Palliative Care patients.

Reflexology’s goal is to remove energy blockages in our body’s system, increasing circulation and re-establishing homeostasis (a state of balance within the body/mind).  It can be used as an integrative therapy, stand-alone therapy, and as an effective technique to soothe anxious clients. 

Known to diminish pain and speed healing in areas that cannot be directly manipulated, it’s effective for treating broken bones, cancers, Organ and digestive disorders to name a few.  To read Denise’s full Reflexology article, click here (http://ca.wp.amtamassage.org/wp-content/uploads/sites/55/2018/06/Final-California-Currents-Spring-2018.pdf

A Certified Massage Therapist and talented Practitioner, while teaching for Healing Hands, Denise also worked as a Massage and Energy Therapist for Hospice in San Diego.  There, she was credited with developing, organizing and directing the first Massage Therapy Program for Hospice patients. Her team of Professional Massage Therapists provided therapeutic massage and natural therapies to enhance patient care and comfort. The Program was so well received, it inspired Denise to author her first book; “Comfort Care: Natural Symptom Solutions for Palliative and Hospice Care, which she hopes to publish next year.

Holistic Massage School Shares the Benefits of ‘Sun Salutation’ for Aspiring Massage Therapists

As a school of Massage and the Holistic Healing Arts, the Instructors at Healing Hands School of Holistic Health (Healing Hands) consider exercise as an essential holistic practice.  In fact, most of the 80+ classes include an exercise segment designed to warm up the student’s muscles in preparation for delivering Massage.  These segments may include Tai Chi, Yoga, Chi Gong, Therapeutic Stretching, and a variety of “flow” movement sequences.

“Our bodies work best when in motion”, said Harmony Curtiss, Director for Healing Hands – Laguna Hills. “It only takes about 30 minutes of continuous exercise daily to make a substantial impact on our long-term health.  Below is a 12-step Yoga flow series known as “Sun Salutation”. Practicing this flow daily increases the fluidity of the body’s fascia (gel like substance that surrounds body structures) which lubricates joints and facilitates greater range of motion. A strength exercise as well, it prompts the body to build muscle, so it’s a great way to get your daily dose of exercise”, she added.

(Photo Credit – ‘The Monday Campaigns’, backed by John Hopkins, Columbia and Syracuse Universities, that dedicate the first day of every week to health.)

The Sun Salutation, as the translation indicates, is a gesture of respect to the Sun.  Today’s practitioners often dedicate each round of this flow series to something they are grateful for. Many claim it uplifts their Spirit and mood.  Additional physiological benefits of Sun Salutation include:

  1. It lengthens and tones your muscles
  2. It immediately Increase your energy level
  3. It increases lymph movement which cleanses and repairs body tissue
  4. It increases our respiratory function, exercising our heart and lungs
  5. It increases blood circulation which delivers oxygen and nutrients to our muscles and organs
  6. It helps stabilize blood sugar and blood pressure
  7. Is a way to experience moving meditation, which enhance emotional wellbeing
  8. It focuses you on the positive so you start your day centered and grateful
