There is something I want to share with you that has been coming up a lot in my practice in the past couple of months. A client will come to a session and tell me what has been going on in their body. Once we start to work, we will get to a place that needs attention and the client will say, "I didn't know how messed up I was until you touched that spot!"
As many of you know, my work is not what you would get with a typical massage. I continue to work and study the body so that I can more easily assess what is happening in the alignment when you come to a session in pain or discomfort. When we work therapeutically and really get to the source of the issue, we are much more effective.
Seeing yourself as "messed up" gets in the way of you're healing. You are human and from time to time, you will get out of alignment, but the good news is you have me! We can work together to bring your body to a place of easy movement.
So the next time you are feeling off, try to connect to your body and become kinesthetically aware of what is going on. Feel the good, feel the bad, and really listen to what your body is telling you. The more you connect your mind and body, the less "messed up" you will feel, because you will catch misalignments before they are an issue.
