I’ve been a massage therapist for over ten years and I’ve been receiving massages for even longer than that and there’s one thing that I’ve learned really matters when it comes to giving and receiving massage.
It’s mindfulness-the simple,profound act of being absolutely present and mindful of the person you are with.
This isn’t something that only applies to massage,though, in all situations, giving the gift of our mindful attention makes the difference.
It is felt by the body it is instinctively known by the soul when we are with someone.
As a therapist, once I enter a room with my client and place my hands on them, I become present,mindful,completely with that person. It’s my honor,my privilege,and my gift to be able to touch,to massage,to hold space and in order to do that, I focus with intention on who I’m with and what my purpose is at this moment.
Massage touches the body,the mind and the spirit and every touch matters. We simply can not touch the body without also touching the soul.
That’s one of the many reasons why I my clients come to me.
They can feel that my attention is centered on them and they know that I’m focused on giving them the best massage,each and every time they come to me.
Mindful massage-it doesn’t just sound good,it feels wonderful.
