Some stuff

So, here we are.  

I've left my other, second part-time job just this week in order to devote myself full time to my massage practice.  It's a risk, for sure.  But I don't like having people wait for 3 weeks to get an appointment, so I've opened up my schedule.  For you.  

I've been practicing for 10 years now.  The time flew by.  And some of my clients have been with me for nearly the entire time.  That's incredible to me and I am forever grateful.  I've had several physical setbacks, but I've come through them all with a better understanding of pain and recovery from pain.  That can only help me help you.

I've been in my current office for almost 3 years now.  It's been a heckova ride to get to this point.  I wouldn't trade any of it.  I've met some really interesting people along the way.  The stories I could tell you!  Perhaps I will use this blog to share some of the more interesting experiences.  Always learning!   

Be well people... and if you're not, come see me. 

Be afraid. Be very afraid

True story. Just ask anyone who comes into my office, especially after the first "act normal" visit.  Because I do this.  I listen. Closely.  "They" usually give me some insight as to what needs to happen in the visit. "They" tell me whether to start face up or face down. "They" tell me to mention  other healthcare practitioner modalities as possible additions to treatment.   Let's call them The Council for now.  "They" sounds so impersonal.

So, The Council doesn't actually have a voice, like you might hear from someone at your house yelling down, "Hey!  Where's the toilet paper?"  It's more like a feeling.  Like a thought that won't quit repeating itself until I give it a voice by saying it outloud.  Usually after staring off into space, often to my left, and saying, "Hmmm".  People who see me do this the first time will often say, "What.  What is that?"  Clients who've been with me a good long time will ask me what "they" said.  They understand that I'm not working alone.  Fortunately for me, I have a little bit of restraint left and don't introduce The Council until after my client and I have a decent rapport and they finally "get" why I named my practice, "a little Touched".  It's like the light bulb goes off in their brains when they put it together.  Then we're like besties after that.  We share a secret.  And you know what?  It gives them a sudden relief somehow.  They get to exhale and tell me about some weird thing that happened to them. They call it coincidence or serendipity.  I understand that it's their own council and tell them so.  It makes them feel not so odd.  Not so crazy.  Not so judged.  The best part of it is that it creates an openness that they didn't have before.  So that the other magic can happen.  The energy work works so much better after they get it. It's remarkable, really.

So, there it is.  The Council has left the building.  Off to the left, in a little spec of light. See it?  I do.
