New Year, New Resolutions

By Massage Today , Editorial Staff

Every new year provides us all the opportunity to refocus our goals. This year brought the additional lesson of perspective. It also brings an equally strong sense of focus to remember what’s most important in our lives. Whether it’s catching up with friends virtually, getting more physically fit, or finally working on that new hobby you’ve been putting off, massage therapists around the country are hoping to bring more of what they love into their practices in the New Year. 

As we welcome 2021, massage therapists share their resolutions.

Emilie Alice Palmer, LMT, CLT

“Every year I pick a word that is a ‘theme’ for the year. In 2021, my word is: Value. What can I do to bring more value to my life? How can I be more valuable to those around me? 

I am committing to being more present in all areas of my life.”

Erik Dalton, PH.D.

“Every year, I resolve to spend more time outdoors with my wife and two dogs at our home in Costa Rica and less time sitting at the computer. Sometimes that happens and oftentimes not. I do know that all of us are looking forward to hanging out with friends and relatives again and loving every day.”

Michael Salveson

“I always resolve to improve my skills, take good care of myself, increase my compassion and joy, and serve the best interests of my clients.  I have many clients whom I have treated for many years. So, among my resolutions is a desire to continue cultivating gratitude for these relationships.”

Phil Okazaki, NMT, CMT

“I resolve to lead by example. I will continue to learn because we should all strive to know how our touch affects the body and the mind. I resolve to share my knowledge and experience with any therapist who wants to evolve and become the therapist they’ve always wanted to be.”
