Why I Became A Massage Therapist
I became a massage therapist because I am interested in the human anatomy and alternative healing programs. I enrolled in a Reflexology course and Massage course during my free time during my college days.
I wasn't able to finished my course in college and the best thing for me was to practice massage until it became my profession.
My Life As A Massage Therapist
I came from a poor family in the Philippines and it was answered prayers when I was hired to work in a hotel in the kingdom of Saudi Arabia.I worked very hard and my sponsor was very happy with my performance. I was slowly able to help my family get out of debt and also saved some money for my own savings.
Now I have 2 houses and some savings from all the years of hard work.Also I got married to the girl of my dreams using part of my savings.Just a simple ceremony but I didn't borrow any money.
- I learned that there are a lot of misconceptions about Saudi Arabia and its people. I want to share that Saudis are very friendly and hard-working people. It is true that their culture is very restricted, but I was able to adapt their simple way of life as well.
How Long I've Been A Massage Therapist
I've been a massage therapist for almost 15 years.
Where I Went To School & What I Thought Of It
I went to a government college that has a vocational program for poor students. It wasn't a professional school for massage but we studied very hard for it and many of us had the chance to work abroad.
What I've Learned on My Journey
I learned that doing the work you love is always productive. I'm still learning many things about life concerning about my work and those I cherish the most.
What I Wish I'd Known Before I Started
I wished I have known about massage theories and practices more before I got started because I was a bit rusty on some techniques.
