In the last week I’ve seen a wide variety of health concerns on my massage table. This is not unusual– but it occurred to me this morning as I was stretching and noticing the areas on my own body that feel tender, sore, tight: Every Body Needs Massage.
Just a quick glance at some of the issues brought to my table in the last week have been
- A grieving widow, exhausted and needing comfort
- Two Mama’s to be
- A woman with whiplash and emotional overwhelm from her car accident
- A hamstring injury
- Plantar Fascitis
- Anxiety & depression
- A stressed out and over worked single mama with 3 jobs who had her first complete day off since Memorial Day Weekend
- Sciatica & TMJD
And of course, many knots/adhesions in the Rhomboids (that area between spine and shoulder blades), tired feet, aching low backs, and some who just needed to be touched. I’ve also had a competive athlete and a retired couple who feel great because I see them every week and they know it keeps them movin!
Skilled hands CAN be effective treatment for so many ailments, as a stand alone or with other practitioners, like physicians, chiropractors, mental health therapists, acupuncturists, yoga instructors, etc.
I absolutely love that I get to spend atleast an hour with these people, with focused intention on their well being. I love watching the body relax into that Zen state, where the breathing is rhythmic and the muscles and joints release their attentive grip. I love the conversations about life, about wellness, the questions I’m asked, the trust I’m given. It is such an honor to get to do work I love, work I’ve devoted myself to for 15 years.
