One would think that with the is virus penetrating the suburbs, people would be more reluctant to go for massage . However, quite the contrary has occurred.
Practitioners have seen an average 30% rise in massage bookings during this time, this is due to the entire globe being forced into isolation and being deprived of interaction & touch with others human beings. Those who know our practices, understand the safety, have acquired the professionalism and can distinguish the difference between quality and quantity.
The one very special feed back I've received from a trusted friend and equally skilled massage professional was that he felt all the thoughts around the restrictions & the worry of covid-19, a type of Coronavirus, disappeared from his mind.as the practitioner& the client completely forgot about they were in lockdown for that moment during a session, they both had a sense of overwhelming peace. I can see that the calling to help others is very real & much needed.
The information below gives you some insight into the field of massage therapy & to get a feel for the demands of our industry world wide. We are always updated and current as to what is happening..
In South Africa Specifically, Massage and other Natural Touch practices have grown in demand by up to almost 300% since 2012. South Africans are have been educated and have been exposed to massage and what it has to offer in terms of Lifestyle, Health, Prevention and Cure. Clients today, with their growing general knowledge in the subject of health and massage, look for Massage Practitioners that are well rounded in what they can offer. The industry at large has placed standards in what practitioners should offer to be seen as experts in their field. This in itself is based on what clients request in private practices, spas, massage studios, and wellness centres across the globe and RSA. Today, the need for highly skilled and dynamic practitioners is a bare minimum based on what practitioners are able to do today. Gone are the days where getting a run of the mill "Holistic massage" would suffice, or going for that stock standard"Advanced sports massage" that you bought from the Tannie with that tuisnywerheid franchise

However, clients are picky and are looking for real therapists with proper skill and high standards, they are loyal, are willing to pay and will promote you if you are good. When students study with Balancingtouch, they learn how to achieve these standard.
