Anchen Texter and Camilla Jørgensen, both double licensed DEI Trainers and Consultants, are also both experienced massage therapists. They are working on a new course for bodyworkers and would like your input. Here´s what they have to say about it:
Hello to all bodyworkers, treatment workers and massage therapists who have struggled with boundaries, stress, and burnout!
We have a vision of offering an online course to bodyworkers that helps them to work deliberately with their boundaries, their emotions, and healthy empathy in order to avoid stress and burnout.
We are developing a 6-week course for bodyworkers and massage therapists right now, and we would love to hear your input and to see what the level of interest is. Your input will help us develop the course so it matches your needs in the best way possible.
This course is for all types of bodyworkers: massage therapists, physiotherapists, chiropractors, osteopaths, acupuncturists, shiatzu bodyworkers, acupressure massage workers, treatment workers, body therapy workers, etc. – all types of therapists who work with and through the body, experienced or new, and who work with clients on a one-to-one basis.
Would you share with us your own experiences as a bodyworker – with boundaries, self-care, and empathy in your work?
If you feel inclined to do so, please fill out this questionnaire:
We – Camilla Jørgensen and Anchen Texter – both went through stress and burnout in our own massage work, and came out on the other side by learning to work with our emotions, strengthen our boundaries, and develop a deeper level of self-care. We want to help massage therapists and bodyworkers in the same position as we were, and also help new massage therapists learn the skills necessary to prevent burnout from ever happening to them.
We do that through the lens of working with emotions and empathy, something we both specialized in when we became licensed Dynamic Emotional Integration® (DEI) Trainers and Consultants at Empathy Academy with Karla McLaren, M.Ed.
Thank you so much for taking the time to share your insights!
