Massage Therapist Decalogue

Massage Therapist Decalogue

Massage Therapist DecalogueIn every day practise every one of us, professional massage therapist, considers very important issue of helping another human being. We learn it as we grow up, thanks to our family efforts. These practices help us in our adult lives; they influence our need to be with another person for good and for worse. Our mentors from whom we learn the work ethics also stress the importance of helping others. All these factors make us feel needed, and very often irreplaceable. My own experience and contemplating on my profession have made me think of sharing with you my own idea of a Massage Therapist Decalogue. It would be a collection of guidelines we should consider in our everyday work with a patient. Please feel free to share your own views.

Massage Therapist Decalogue

  • When you meet your patient anticipate their needs, shake their hand, introduce yourself, show them respect and warm feelings you would have for any newly met human being. Respect their experiences and wisdom, which come from them. Remember that although they need your help, they are still a human.
  • Listen carefully to your patient. Talk about their uncertainties. Try to create a friendly atmosphere to win their trust.
  • Show care and interest in their health problems through your words and behaviour. Make them believe that you are able to tackle their aches, and their will feel part of the process.
  • Do your best to make the condition the patient has come to you an important problem to be resolved with the aid of your professionalism, empathy and care.
  • Fear and uncertainty are common feelings for many patients. Try your very best to console your patient.
  • Be there for your patient. Let him feel that apart from your empathy you can also offer them your professional expertise and skills.
  • Remember, that the patient will interpret your bad mood as depriving them of a chance for getting better.
  • Always bear it in mind, that you are responsible for yourself and your patients.
  • Make sure you recognise every single patient as an individual case.
  • Do all you possibly can, and treat your patients the same way you would like to be treated.
