Investigation of Manual Therapies
We just completed our first class of the fall semester! I was so proud of everyone who participated. It was such an honor to watch everyone's confidence soar. Manual therapy can feel pretty overwhelming. It can be hard to wrap one's head around the concept that structures can actually be palpated beneath the skin. It can also be quite a challenge to our mindsets; to not power past the will of the body. We have to remember that, to the body, we are invited guests bringing gifts of healing. We might think our gifts are perfect, but the body may not. Learning to respect the tissues and offering just the right amount treatment will result in happiness and success all around.
To everyone who participated, you now have the task of figuring out how to put your new tools into practice. This can be scary! We learned a lot yesterday. I would like to offer this space as an opportunity to stay connected. I would love for you to share your successes and Aha moments. Let's talk about the things that didn't go quite right. We can also clarify how do do certain techniques.
I look forward to hearing from you!
