Name: Ausra Kubiliute
Years in the Wellness/Beauty Industry:
LMT for 20+ years
Most Memorable Tip (monetary, gift or advise):
A really nice client from Indiana gave me $80 in cash because we “just connected.”
How did you choose a career in the Wellness industry?
I was a professional woman’s basketball player. While playing I experienced a lot of therapeutic massage. It occurred to me that I could pursue it after basketball.
Greatest reward of doing the work?
Helping other people makes me feel great and because of that I have a lot of requests.
Top two things you wish or would like to change in the industry?
I think the most important thing for LMTs to recognize and remember:
- You need to be your best
- You need experience to determine the best technical approach for each client
- It’s not about fast & easy money. If so, you will tire easily.
Who is your Mentor and why?
My nanny, Emilia. She raised me from birth until I was 20 years old. She taught me everything I know. She taught me how to love people, the importance of honesty, consequences and respect. She gave me a lot of love and attention. She helped everyone she met. She had incredible strength to survive a hard life. She lived to be 85.
