How much is your health worth to you?
Two people called me today looking for bodywork. They wanted to come in “right now” because they saw a social media deal. One had a long standing history of back spasms and bulging and herniated discs and the other a list of health conditions including autoimmune disorders. I don’t understand why those with such serious conditions would want ‘chance it’ with a social media coupon. Neither currently got massage and one of them was on vacation! I also started to think about the high (unspoken) expectations placed on a massage session especially when health concerns are at stake, left unaddressed to the point of pain, and allotted only 30 minutes to improve.
I am always happy to sell a massage session – don’t get me wrong – but when someone is only giving me 30 minutes to address such a chronic condition it is hard for me to see how I can help. Listening to the body is a big job. Providing what it needs is big too. I take that so seriously. I desire to do that for everyone who comes in. I value the health of all of my clients so much. I clients, now and tomorrows, to know ‘how’ to use massage in order to get the most benefit from it.
Personally I get regular massages and take weekly Epsom salt baths. People always want to know where I go. I go to various places, schedule, and pay just like the rest. I schedule my massages sometimes two months in advance. I know when it is my turn on the table and plan that time into my schedule to strengthen my health. I look forward to it!!
I can’t encourage enough all who are reading to do the same.
Care for your health while you have it.
Be kind to yourself!
Joy in your journey!
Last month I provided the wrong link! One would think I don’t proof read these before I send them!! I have the correct link up above to the February video on my method for fertilizing my garden. You can get to the January video from there too. Sorry about that!
