Internet Scams Target Massage Therapists

Massage therapists are now on the receiving end of a variation of an online con. Here’s how it works: An out-of-town “client” contacts a practitioner via e-mail wanting to schedule appointments for a time in the future when he/she will be visiting the area.

Student Success Tips

The trick to being successful is to constantly learn the best way to do things. As a student, how you study becomes a critical part of getting the most out of your training. Good study habits are deliberate skills that are learned. Some schools teach study habits. Most do not.

Being a Successful Student and Graduating on Time!

This may be the most important part of the program for you. It's great to learn the technical skills, but learning basic success skills and strategies can change all aspects of your life.

Learn to Love Feedback (Criticism)

This is a big one. If you master this, you are guaranteed to succeed.

Nobody loves to be criticized. Even when your goal is to be as successful as possible, feedback or criticism is often incorrectly associated with punishment or being wrong. It is natural. Most of our lives we have received feedback in ways that were tied to being bad or being punished. It is the legacy of the behavioral scientists who designed the educational and socialization structure of our society. Do something good and get a reward. Do something bad and get punished.

In preparation for working in a spa, salon or clinic, the art of getting a good clinic schedule starts with what you do in school. Although the cosmetology salon is done on a walk-in basis only, getting to work with clients in all settings requires some thought and action on your part to get the prime opportunities.

Tips for Completing Practice Sessions - Module 1 Massage/Level 1 Polarity

As a student enrolled in a Massage Therapy Program or the Polarity Therapy Career Program, you will complete 30 practice sessions during your first module or level of your program. While the actual sessions are not turned in until the first block of clinic, you are encouraged to have all or most of the practice sessions done by the Peer Review final exam class.

Like it or not, your appearance has a huge impact on your success. The cliché that, "You only get one chance to make a good first impression" is even more important in the industries of beauty and health than in almost any other profession other than sales (and let's face it, whether you are a realtor or a parent trying to get your kids to do something, we are all in sales on one level or another).

Every sport maintains careful and complete statistics on their performance and use systems (training, warm up, diet, body mechanics, etc.) to improve performance. The pros monitor the stats RELIGIOUSLY. They know their numbers inside and out. Why? Because the numbers are their tool for monitoring performance. It is the only way they can get to the top of their game. And they follow their systems RELIGIOUSLY because they know it is the only way to improve performance. Spirit and enthusiasm are important, but without the stats and the systems, they will not reach their goals.
