If these walls could talk, they would tell you tales of triumph and sorrow. Stories of achievement and disappointment, poetry weaved with pain and pleasure.
If these walls could talk, they would tell you that the hands of the therapist have held hundreds of pairs feet, cradled thousands of heads and felt the swift kick of many a babe in utero. They've soothed cramping calves and eased countless headaches. Patiently listened to tears of joy, sobs of grief, sighs of anxiety and worry. Heard of businesses gone bust, relationships cracked open, sudden deaths, engagements and long awaited pregnancies - oh these walls, if only they could talk!
But they can't, because they are walls. They are my walls, my space, my place for you to feel safe and unwind, to truly let go. These walls, hold the greatest level of confidence and trust. And that is Sacred.
As a Massage Therapist of nearly 20 years, I have been a confidant for hundreds, probably thousands, of clients There is no judgment, no fixing, no rushing. Rather, a compassionate ear and a pair of hands that see and feel right to the core - patient, nurturing, listening.
The human body is amazing and quite possibly, far more powerful than any of us realise. Often, when given the time to be still and relax, the body remembers. Past hurts, traumas or injuries get caught up in the body's cellular memory, the fascia, reappearing when we are overwhelmed or fatigued, when we are caught up in stress.
Sometimes, no words are needed. Sometimes it's the sigh of breath on the exhale as a trigger point eases and the pain is released, taking with it the pattern of holding, both physically and emotionally. The dance of unwinding, a subtle allowing of letting the tissue move to where it wants to go. Less push, more flow.
If these walls could talk, they would tell you the tale of a Woman who values her role as more than a job, more than a service, but a privilege. A Woman who is generous with her time and deliberate with her treatments. A Woman that encourages as much as she calms and supports. A Woman who is authentic in her approach, and keeps it real.
That Woman is Me.
