This is a personal sadness. After being a massage therapist for 17 years or so, thinking that when people have suffered from physical and emotional trauma that massage is longed for because it usually feels so healing, it isn’t always the case. I’ve had this client for at least 12 years and they were diagnosed with something “scary”, and in addition are in pain because of a deteriorated joint.

Instead of wanting to come in, they have almost gone out of their way to avoid massage by being very busy. I feel like a failure right now. I feel like if I was a decent massage therapist, this would be when they should appreciate it the most. It almost negates the whole reason why I became a therapist.
