Need Some Insight in to Career Opportunities in the Beauty Industry?

Career decisions are tough... every time I think about it, the scene from the old Twisted Sister video "I Wanna Rock" echos in my brain where the teach yells out "What do you want to do with your life?" Of course at some point, I think every young adult actually does think "I Wanna Rock". Unfortunately, we can't all be rock stars... there is not that much opportunity for the masses in that career choice.  However, the beauty industry has bountiful opportunity and there is a terrific book to help boil it all down.

Industry IN:Site 101 Top Beauty Careers - Second Edition by C. Jeanine Fulton is a one of a kind resource guide lists 101+ career opportunities within the beauty industry.

Educating Your Clients with Anatomical Charts

We've all heard the saying at some point in our lives, "knowledge is power". This is an accurate statement as long as the correct information is being relayed and learned.

For massage therapists, many times people don't understand the systems of the body affected by manual therapies. They also don't generally understand how a spot underneath their shoulder blade can be the cause of their neck pain and look at you sideways when you try to explain a trigger point.

A great way to help your clients understand their bodies and how massage works with the body's own systems is through anatomical charts. There are wall charts and table charts that are great to use while you explain things to your clients.

Some popular charts include:

Whatever method works best for you, your clients will appreciate you taking the time to help them understand not only their bodies but why the service you are providing is so beneficial to them!
