A good therapist will always meet a client where they’re at and work to build a professional relationship from there.

I am one of those shy ones, so I’ve never had a massage because the whole “take off your clothes” part freaked me out. LOL. Michelle, you are brilliant! Why did no one ever explain this before? Thank you! It makes perfect sense. I hope the whole world finds this post, or at least other people like me.

A more realistic approach might be to set general guidelines, then monitor how you work within them and make adjustments as necessary.

Comment on The Massage Client’s Guide to Perfume and Other Smelly Things by Michelle Doetsch http://newyewhealing.com/the-massage-clients-guide-to-perfume-and-other-smelly-things/#comment-8359 Sat, 15 Oct 2016 04:13:30 +0000 http://newyewhealing.com/?p=4874#comment-8359 Stinky, for sure. LOL. I’m aware of fennel seeds, but I can’t stand the taste and I’m not too fond of the smell as they’re being chewed, either… too much like licorice. Ick. There’s that pesky personal taste thing again. (pun intended)

Chew a pinch of them and you may banish any smelly lunch items lingering on your breath, such as garlic, fish, or onions. Love garlic. Love ballroom dancing. Happy to know this trick!
P.S. You can swallow or spit out. They contain phyto-estrogen, so choose accordingly.

I think I have witnessed every one of these 15 in my time of massaging 🙂

Comment on The (Upside and) Downside of Being Fully Present by Michelle Doetsch http://newyewhealing.com/the-upside-and-downside-of-being-fully-present/#comment-8298 Sat, 10 Sep 2016 02:19:11 +0000 http://newyewhealing.com/?p=4860#comment-8298 Part 2 of your comment reminds me that I need to read The Power of Now. It’s been on my reading list for a long time, but I never seem to get around to reading it. Your quote from it is the perfect reminder. Thanks!

Comment on The (Upside and) Downside of Being Fully Present by Carmen Maret http://newyewhealing.com/the-upside-and-downside-of-being-fully-present/#comment-8297 Fri, 09 Sep 2016 21:29:51 +0000 http://newyewhealing.com/?p=4860#comment-8297 This post was an important read for me and it makes me think of two things:

1) My husband and I are musicians. We had our first experience with a concert where no one showed up to hear us in 2005 at a church in Duluth, MN. The pastor of the church and the two of us were just sitting there pathetically on a beautiful Sunday afternoon in July in his empty church and he asks, “you know the serenity prayer right?” I’m already rolling my eyes and he says without flinching, “F*@!# IT.” I was absolutely floored, but also relieved. We all busted out laughing.

2) I like the way Eckhart Tolle explains in his book “The Power of Now” how to balance boundary setting/action with inner presence, he says “Do what you have to do, but in the meantime be in the present moment.” This is a nice way to think about awareness, that is is an extension of our own inner authority/owning of ourself.

She said, with a hint of sarcasm, “You ever heard of the serenity prayer?” And I replied “Oh stop right there. Of course I must do everything I can FIRST to change what I don’t want – I have to have the courage to give it all I’ve got! It is only when I am powerless and can do nothing that I need to practice acceptance of what is and let go of my need to control!” So yeah – you can add fans or air conditioning and change your home temp. And you can request adjustments in your office – just as your colleague requested adjustments. So everyone can change the things they can. But we all have to accept the blazing sun or the frigid snow ultimately. At least this is how I understand it so far. And I need to see it from this angle – because taking precise action to make my life what I want it to be enlivens me and that is where I need to be a good 70% of the time. The other 30% of the time . . . Well you know, I just need to chill and let it be! (No pun intended:)
