Reading through massage magazines I've read that most therapists last about 6 years in this field. If therapists don't take care of themselves it can leave us not only physically depleted but emotionally drained. Being an empath I can take others pain mentally and physically.

I took three days off to go on a mini vacation with my daughter this past week. I don't take many days off, I've always felt some guilt turning down clients. I felt a newness even more mentally than physically. I've been working 6 days a week, 8 hours shifts and I still have clients who want me to see them on my time off. I've noticed I can't give my best to the session when I'm overextending myself. It has also been affecting my health. So I've made the decision that I have to put me first so I can give you my best. You deserve to have a session/healing given by a therapist who can give you their 100%.
