Wednesday, April 08, 2009I've decided that it's time for me to come kicking and screaming into the 21st century and learn how to "blog" about massage, massage therapy practice and its benefits and all the other things that truly loving the profession and the clients it brings into my life have brought to me. That's a big change for me. Really, quite a huge change. Websites, blogs, urls, html and all of that are quite new to me and, honestly, are somewhat daunting and just a bit scary too. When I got to thinking about it, massage must be like that for folks who haven't experienced it - a bit daunting and scary - at first.
After all, for the first time client, it entails trusting someone you don't particularly know to touch your body in an effort to relieve it's stresses, strains, tensions and anxieties; you are made to listen to music you generally wouldn't ordinarily consider listening to because it's supposed to help you relax; then, you have to pay that person you didn't know for doing goodness knows what to your body to help it unwind. That, in and of itself, has been known to be enough to discourage a first time client from coming into a therapist's office and partaking of massage services. BUT, and it's a huge but, if you can let your guard down just a little bit and give it a try, you can be pleasantly surprised that the experience not only didn't kill you, but, that after undergoing the care of the massage therapist, you actually have ended up feeling much more relaxed, muscles aren't screaming in pain, tensions have eased and the world seems just a tiny bit more bearable.
