Wouldn't it be great if you could have avoided some of the common pitfalls new massage therapists fall into? Have you ever wished you could pass on a valuable lesson learned to your past self so that you didn't have to learn it the hard way? Have you ever watched a brand-new massage therapist at work and thought to yourself, "Don't do that!" ❱❱❱ "I have found that the act of massaging a client is just a small piece of what we do as massage therapists.
