In short, many do not. After all, vacation is: a time of respite from something; a period spent away from work/business.
We all need time to re-charge our batteries from time to time.
In order for your massage therapist to perform best, he/she will need to take periodic vacations to rest the hands and also the brain. It takes both physical and emotional effort to provide good and solid bodywork.
If, and when, your therapist can get away from work for a given period, it can be a welcome opportunity for personal rest & relaxation.
Soft music and dim lights during scheduled sessions doesn’t mean the massage therapist’s job is an easy one. It may look simple, but it takes real effort for your therapist to provide a healing space for the client to begin to let go of their baggage; to allow the body to rejuvenate.
Good clients will understand this and encourage the therapist to get some rest for themselves as well, without being angry or so self-centered as to complain about the therapist taking time for themselves and/or their family.
It is always more beneficial to the client when the therapist is at their best.
