I had a lesson taught to me recently that encouraged me to practice what I teach. The experience showed me my own vulnerability and honestly, it wasn’t comfortable.
Some months ago I received a Message Request on a business Facebook page, from a person who was seeking another Teresa regarding an upcoming High School reunion. I didn’t know the person messaging me and responded that the Teresa they were searching for wasn’t me. Apparently they didn't receive that message.
Something I hear often from clients during or at the end of their sessions is “I didn’t know that muscle was tight, or sore, until you were massaging there” or “I didn’t realize how tense and stressed I was until I was quietly lying on the massage/reiki table”. Most holistic therapies encourage relaxation, and when added to a quiet atmosphere many people begin to breathe more deeply, become more present in the moment and become more aware of where they are holding stress and tension in their body, mind and/or spirit.
