Keeping a positive mindset for my clients is of utmost importance to me, as 80% of my clients are generally in pain, and pain can color a person’s perception of the world that may not be totally accurate.
Each morning after waking up, I spend time reading and studying the Bible, talking with God, and praying to show up as His hands, heart, ears and mouth, and I strive to bring a bit of joy to each person who allows me to work with them. I work out to keep my body in condition to deal with the demands of massage therapy.
I believe that bodywork requires a level of trust, and I want my clients to feel comfortable in my presence. With every new client, I do an intake where I can learn a bit about their body and it’s particular needs. On the first visit, I do a bit more talking than I generally do, as I guide them through the massage to let them know what to expect. I do my best to establish ‘sacred’ space for them, a place where they feel comfortable, free of judgement.
I end each massage with a centering prayer, and hope that the short time they are in my presence they feel relaxed, safe and supported during their session. I then share some self-care tips as it is always my goal to help others take care of themselves.
