We are all on a quest for meaning and alignment

Making a massage powerpoint

I have been a massage therapist for almost thirteen years.  I am supposed to put together a power point presentation about massage and its benefits and present it for half an hour at a university in a couple of days. 

Awesome, right?  Yes.

And yet I find myself stumped as I face the computer screen.  There is so much to say about massage and so much that no one will ever understand from me speaking.

I was working with a client recently who I had never worked with before.  She described herself as under a lot of stress in the interview.  As I worked with her, I noticed her skin felt tighter when I did long strokes down the back (which most people's tissues respond to well).  I changed to circular strokes and her whole body relaxed.  She took a deep breath and then we could work. 

How do I put that in a power point?

Being a massage therapist has a lot of benefits.  It has taught me to be more present in all my interactions.  Not that I am always 100% present, but that I tend to at least notice if I am not now. 

It has taught me to understand people.  Being in a healer's role will teach you about how we become who we are.  We tend to tell our stories with our bodies.  

Above all, I think massage has taught me how to be quiet with people.  And how to let them be quiet with me.  That is such a gift.  Just letting go of the personality for an hour and just being.  I feel much more able to just be quiet with people in my whole life now.  I give thanks for that.

So now to get back to that power point...
