"I wanted to feel that satisfaction that I got from massage in a way that you don't get when you're doing an office job" - Annie Milović
Annie Milović considers herself Canadian even after 21 years of living in Edinburgh, Scotland. She works part-time as a massage therapist out of her home and works flexible hours as a civil servant for Scotland. She used to be a political adviser on Parliament Hill in Ottawa and it never occurred to her that she could be a massage therapist.
Annie loves learning and seeks out opportunities to learn which is how she discovered the benefits of giving a massage though she had always been getting them before.
She describes the way her work life is balanced between the little control she has at her office job and the complete control she has over her massage practice. We talk about the job satisfaction one gets from massage in a way that you don't get at an office job. How does her day differ in Scotland compared to Canada and how does the massage profession match up to Canadian trained RMTs?
She has even inspired a few of co-workers to give their own interests a go and see that maybe it's not that scary after all.
I hope you enjoy this chat with Annie Milović!
