A little while back, a client came in with some small physical aches and pains, but nothing major. “But there’s been a lot going on,” she said, “and I can just tell I need a massage.”
We spent 2 hours together on a combination of relaxation and deep tissue massage, energy work and aromatherapy. Afterwards, I walked her to the door. She turned and gave me a big hug and said, “Thank you so much! My life has been moving so fast that I couldn’t figure out what to do — and while I was on the table, I realized what my next steps have to be. It seems so obvious now!”
Sometimes all you need is to unplug and get quiet for a little while. Some people run, some people meditate, some people go sit under a tree. But sometimes, it helps to have another person to hold the space — and massage can be an ideal vehicle for an hour or two of quiet time.
