Julie has been practicing Massage Therapy since before she was old enough to have a license! More than half of her life has been spent taking care of others and at a certain point she realized that she had never really learned to take care of herself. Through a lot of self discovery, Julie recognized what might be missing for Massage Therapists in their training and what the term “self care” truly means. Now as a Massage Therapy educator in BC, Julie wants to be sure that therapists truly understand how to communicate with their patients, how to deal with certain situations, and how to be sure that they aren’t burning out mentally, physically, or emotionally before it’s too late. Listen to us talk about how different self care can look for each of us and if we have ever experienced burn out.

Joanna is a business strategist that works with innovative holistic practitioners, personal trainers, and bodyworkers that have the passion, the technical skills, and know how when it comes to their work but still there is something missing. Joanna’s background as a business owner in the fitness industry taught her that even the best and most knowledgeable practitioners that have the appearance of being successful because they are “busy” might not be living up to their fullest potential. For the last 5 years or so, Joanna has shifted her career to focus on helping innovative practitioners learn how to implement specific strategies to become the type of leader that has a lucrative, self- sufficient practice that allows for the business owners to be wildly successful versus busy! Listen to Joanna’s story to learn how to have a business that reflects your own passion for your work.
Charlie is an avid listener and has opinions on many of the topics we discuss. She originally wanted to come on for a good old unprofessional hour but we wanted to just hang out, talk, and see where the night took us. We talked about getting into the profession, her journey through the last 15 years, and many thoughts about the college, the role of schools in weeding out inappropriate therapists, and the ongoing conversation about healthcare versus service and where Massage Therapy fits in.
Janette is an Athletic Therapist and Registered Massage Therapist that has renamed herself a perinatal therapist because she focuses her practice on the most intense sport in the world…pregnancy.

Pregnancy, labour, and delivery, affect a persons body immensely and it is even more intense when it ends in major surgery- a cesarean section. So what do we need to do? Step one…ask Janette! Listen to someone who talks real about pregnancy, labour, delivery, and post-partum care and is doing some amazing work to ensure these athletes get back to their optimum function.

If a person could be the definition of go-getter, it might be our guest, Dylan. We had her on the podcast in 2020 when the RMTAO featured her in their member spotlight and she was published in Massage Therapy Today. 2 years later and this therapist has continued to kick some gluteals in our profession. She is the lead therapist at her clinic, a board member with the RMTAO, and she has her own line of muscle trading cards and study guides to help students and therapists who need to brush up on anatomy, physiology, pathology, and more! She has displayed no signs of having any intent to slow down and even said she is living her dream. We wanted to pick the brain of someone who is always moving onto the next project and find out how her brain works and what motivates her. Whatever it is we should all be thankful!

I started listening to this as background noise but it's caught my attention enough that I'm adding to my watch list for replay later. You guys touched on so many things that resonated with me about either myself or a couple friends. I'll be sending them a link after I replay. Thanks for touching on this subject. There is a lot we can do for clients that have had these experiences to make them feel accepted and comfortable with touch therapy.
