Two clinic shifts down...

19 to go...

I'm not counting or anything! ha ha. This morning was my second shift of massage clinic. Both last week and this week I did 5 one-hour massages in less than 6 hours. The time sort of flies by because you are busy the entire time, either massaging a client or changing sheets/washing hands/etc in-between clients. I feel like I am holding up well but by the end, I do feel pretty exhausted physically. I am sure it will get easier and I will adjust to it soon. It has overall so far been a good experience. Out of the ten clients I have worked on only two have been men and all but one of the ten had gotten massages before. So that is sort of nice to not have to explain everything over and over :) I am sure I won't always be so lucky...but that's okay.

I have finals this week. End of my third quarter!! Three down, two to go. Monday's final is anatomy III but it covers all the anatomy I have learned since October (anat I, II, and III). Yikes. Good thing I enjoy my anatomy class. I might even be sad to not have anymore quarters of it...maybe. But I WILL NOT miss cadaver lab :)
Tuesday I have my cranial-sacral therapy final.
Wednesday is pathology I final and then Thursday will end the week with my Sports Massage final. YAY!! I am looking forward to finals being over and for the new quarter to begin the following Tuesday. New classes!!! Exciting. My classes in Quarter 4 are Trigger Point Therapy, Structural Bodywork I, Pathology II, Shiatsu, and Professional Development III. Doesn't it sound fun?!?!

wow I didn't know that you wanted to be a masseuse (I don't know how to spell). That's cool that you are doing this. Good luck with all your finals!
