TouchPro Certification

Post by cfaye » Sat Oct 18, 2014 9:58 am

I'm currently a student and we had an opportunity to become certified in TouchPro. Since its part of our tuition, I figured it made sense to do so (and I found I really enjoy it!). However, I'm stuck on just how to get in my 100 massages. I'm 30 down and 70 more to go. I need do to the full 15 minute "kata" in order for it to count. So, I'm trying to avoid setting up at a large event. We did a health fair where we did a 3 minute "kata" and we had a big line! I figure I need to stick to a smaller venue to do the 15 minute one. Any ideas of where I ought to set up? So far, its been just family events (that 30 was just my husband's family :) ). Thanks for any ideas :)

I have been doing chair massage for many years - welcome to the club! I am assuming that these sessions will be for free? What about a school, or gym, or health food store? What about asking the people you worked on at the family event if they have contacts.

Or, contact TouchPro and ask what suggestions they have. Many people must have gone through their training in the past and they might be able to give some pointers.

100 x 15 minute massages is quite a lot. Good luck.

How about tying it in as some kind of community service? Fire station, police force, volunteers at the Humane Society...is there a cause you'd like to support? That might be a great way to "donate" your time & efforts to people who would really appreciate your work.

Update!

I had a wonderful friend who got me into a local school district. I'll have all of my massages in my the end of the year. Thanks for all the ideas :)

Awesome! I never thought of the school district!
