In one of my first massage school classes, the instructor made a remark I’ll never forget. She welcomed the students and then said that it was unfortunate but “men have very little success in this industry.” Being one of three men in the class, I didn’t know if that was meant to be discouraging or to be a challenge. Being a glass half-full kind of guy, I told myself “challenge accepted!”
When I graduated in the top of my class, my goal was to find ways to encourage people to view bodywork in a different way. After months of searching for the “next step,” I was fortunate to find my way to the Dalton Crew.
Thanks to Erik, Paul, Kim and the rest of the gang I was able to learn how to make full use of my scope of practice as a bodyworker. Becoming a MMT has made me a more skilled therapist, more thorough in assessing my clients, and better skilled in how to help the variety of pain and injury conditions that I see in practice today.
My clients truly appreciate the time and effort I have invested in becoming a MMT. Although my practice is located in an area saturated with LMT’s, I have had no problems attracting clients and staying busy. Being a MMT or even working your way to becoming a MMT will set you apart from the fundamentals that we learned as entry level massage therapists. I am very happy, grateful, and excited to now be part of the Dalton Crew!
