I have talked with many clients and massage therapists about the benefits of meditation and there are always a number of questions. The most common is how do I meditate? I answer that there are many ways to meditate and give examples of many of those. However, this answer many times creates confusion because when people meditate at first they think their mind is going to go blank immediately. They don’t understand that they just need to observe what the mind is doing while focusing on the process. Since there are so many types of meditation I am going to discuss progressive relaxation, mantras, countdowns, guided meditations, and my personal favorite – the Light Meditation that can also be used as a very powerful distance healing tool. If you would like to learn to meditate, or would like to try another form of meditation, please read the following article

If you are a massage therapist the Governor’s Executive Order #20-72 on March 20, 2020 resulted in your being unable to treat clients creating a financial hardship. Whether you work for a business that provided massage therapy, had your own business, or were self-employed you are no longer able to make a living doing massage. Both the State and Federal governments have made financial assistance available. Massage therapists who either worked for a business or were sole proprietors qualify for unemployment for up to 16 weeks. This is accessed by applying online to Floridajobs.org. Unemployment will also be subsidized by the Federal government with an additional amount up to $600 a week. There is also a small business loan available from the SBA with a paycheck protection program for sole proprietorship or corporations, and any small business is eligible to borrow 250% of their average monthly payroll expenses intended to cover eight weeks of payroll expenses and additional amounts toward making payments toward debt obligations. Find out how to file for the financial assistance that you qualify for.
