I LOVE MY JOB!!!
This is what I did at work today:
First I saw a client who is recovering from a concussion. He has been seeing me every week for therapeutic bodywork, which has been fun because I have been experimenting with various techniques and approaches. Today I incorporated vibrational healing from a Tibetan Bowl and a chime, both with sounds that evoke the sacred space within. After the session he said that it was the best session he's had so far. Yeah!
Then I saw my weekly Traumatic Brain Injury client. I've wrote about him before on the Upward Spiral blog. Though his movement and communication is limited, we've worked together so much that I feel a fond friendship with him. Today when he came in he said hi to me for the first time. It may not have sounded like that to someone else, but I heard him. For an hour I got to help him feel relaxed in his body that he may often otherwise feel trapped in. I even got some good laughs from him in sharing some funny stories. He may not say much but he sure loves to laugh.
Last I saw a client that came to me originally for physical pain and in that we've found other emotional traumas that were tied up with it. We had a long discussion about where she's at and where she'd like to be. She left saying that it was like counseling and massage all-in-one place, and that she feels like she can get through the rough road she's been traveling. We brought in some light where there was darkness. To top it all off, we helped make significant difference in her chronic pain.
And I get paid for all of this! That's just the icing on the cake of transformation. More please!
