Randy, you are the massage king! I notice that you receive two massages per week, and that is one bit of advice that I plan to implement in my own life/practice. As a therapist, it can be challenging to create the time to take care of ourselves, but you have reminded me of the importance, so thank you!
I have only been working as a MT for 14 months now, and average 10-18 hours a week. When I first started, I couldn't work more than 12 per week, but with time and building up my endurance and learning new body mechanics/techniques skills to make it easier on my body, it has become easier to increasing my hours.
I didn't vote because I don't know what my hours per week goal is at this moment because it depends on the direction my career takes in the next few months. I have an upcoming interview at a hospital, and they have asked me what I would consider full-time in that environment. They suggest 25, and that is something I need to think about. It is interesting seeing such a wide range of goals and actuals here.
