I work with many people every week. Some of them I may see only once and many I see ongoing and I observe they all have one thing in common. People tend to hold on to “stuff”.
What do I mean?
Stuff is anything that weighs us down. It can be memories that are played out over and over in our heads. It can be an emotion that predominates in daily life which interferes with our experience of joy, hope or innocence. And I believe this “stuff” also directly affects our health and wellbeing.
It is generally recommended during a massage that silence is maintained; however, there are many clients who talk. As I work on the body the client spontaneously releases thoughts, memories, feelings and insights. Body work supports the process of letting go.
“You will find that it is necessary to let things go; simply for the reason that they are heavy. So let them go, let go of them. I tie no weights to my ankles.”
