Today I was massaging a lady, who was so highly stung, her back was full of knots, it was kinda scary at the amount of tension she had in her upper back.
As I gently loosened the tension, trying hard to not try to comfort her in someway, by asking her if she needed a listening ear. My heart went out to her and I knew deep down, that if I was there having a message I would be as riddled with tension as she was.
Finally she relaxed into the massage and fall asleep. A glow warmed me as I realised I had helped her find a little peace, even if only for an hour or so.
When she came round a good hour later, she was so grateful.
I gave her a cd of music the I have made for my customers as a small thank you for their business and to help with everyday stress of life. It’s just a small token, that hopefully will help some people. I’m sure most go in the bin but that doesn’t matter, if it helps one person, then it is worth it.
In such a fast paced society, it is very easy to lose sight of who you are and how your mind works. From a young age, we are taught to think a certain way and act a certain way to the point that we lose ourselves amongst the crowd. Sometimes, it helps to take a break and rediscover parts of yourself.
With the right music, it has the magical ability to heal and calm the soul and listening to music while completing a task can reap benefits beyond belief. I have always been a strong believer in this, and have blogged many times about the benefits of it.
Today proved to me how powerful it really is.
I just hope she listens to it once in a while and I can help her de stress just a little.
