This is a very hard job. It hurts when you do your best, and the client is not happy with your work. There have been days over the years that I left the spa depressed, doubting myself.
I can tell that you care about your work. That’s what counts.
Thank you that helps! It just happens and maybe I shouldn’t get so excited when they really like my work because then I won’t get so down in those more rare times when they don’t.
We can't be all things for all people. When that happens, they either need a different therapist or you can try again the next time they come in, tweak as best you can, and see where the chips land. It's happened to all of us.
