my first day

today was my first day of massage therapy school. we don't have our books quite yet (and i can't wait until we get them). i just wanted to let all of my readers know that it went really well.

we talked about the history of massage and a few techniques. what i was happy about was that the instructor told us that we would find our own techniques and our own rhythm. i appreciate that because what may work for some may not work for others. she also said to keep moving - make the massage a dance. i love that! if you've ever had the pleasure of watching someone give a massage, it is like watching them dance.

i also wanted to thank you for all of your well wishes for my first day and all of your continuing support. i love you guys!

Wishing you a great experience with massage therapy school.
You had asked on my blog if I did Reiki, yes I went through the 3 levels to become a Reiki Master. I have been lagging on my self-treatments and am looking forward to getting back to them.

I so agree. My masseuse is amazing, literally moves like a dancer when she massages me (or at least it feels that way!). Looove. You're making me want a massage!

I'm so happy that your first day was a success!! It's refreshing when instructors can step outside the box and appreciate that everyone is different and learns and adapts differently!! Can't wait to hear more! :o)

Good for you! I'm glad your first day went well. I know first days of anything are hard, at least for me.From what I have read on your blog I think you will be an Awesome Massage Therapist. Cadyn is so cute, I have a rat terrier named Capone. He is my little cuttle bug with an attitude:) Thanks for leaving a message on my blog, and I hope moving on to truth will bring you more joy!
