Q & A with Tanja Richter LMT

Why does your work stand out from others who do what you do?

I customize Massages, there is no one fits all kinda deal with me. All my massages come from a caring and compassionate Heart and Clients can feel that difference.

 

What do you like most about your job?

That I can help people and make a difference in their life and Health :)


What questions do customers most commonly ask you? What's your answer?

What exercise or stretching routine I prefer. I love Pilates and Swimming or any other routine that is gentle on the body and joints and helps to keep and restore a good posture.

 

How Often Should I Get a Massage?

How many times should I schedule a Massage?

Well that depends very much on what you are trying to achieve. If you are going for relaxation, once a month for an hour is ok, unless you want to come more often.

For general health maintenance at least twice a month. Clients that have some type of chronic condition (i.e. headaches or back pain that are often due to postural problems and stress) should come at least twice a week for a month and then back to twice a month for general maintenance.

 

Tell us about a recent or past job you did that you are particularly proud of:

Working with the Pensacola Ice Flyers for the 2009/2010 and for the individual players for the 2010/2011 season. The boys were the best and I will always be thankful for their love and support during that time!!!

 

Do you do any sort of continuing education to stay up on the latest developments in your field?

Massage Therapist always have to get CEU's to keep their License up to date (12 a year). Our Education and Learning never stops. And the Massage Therapist that tells you that they know it all, is the one you should stay away from.   ;)

 

How long does it take to become a Massage Therapist in Germany?

It takes 3,200 Hours (an average of 3 Years) to become a Massage Therapist in Germany compared to the 6-8 Month it takes to become one here in Florida. 

Is one training better then the other? 

Without a natural gift and a love for the healing arts I think it truly does not matter how long you go to school for. When it comes to basic knowledge of the Body, Massage Techniques etc 3 Years of training give you of course a more detailed knowledge then 6-8 month could do.

What questions annoy you the most?

What question  from clients or potential clients annoy you the most?

Questions about what religion I am, what political or social views I hold etc. I am a Massage Therapist, not an ethics coach or spiritual counselor. I welcome everybody at my Office, no matter who you are, where you came from, what you believe in or how you chose to live your life. I am concerned about you as a person, your health, your body, your stress and tension level, your gait, structural issues, tense muscles etc etc. I want to help you and your body along the journey to heal itself. That is all I am and all I want to be.
