I haven’t practiced massage therapy for a year and a half, mainly because of the arthritis in my hands. But my sister in law hurt her back and could hardly get off the floor for about 6 weeks. She was even on the way to surgery but made a narrow escape and is now in the process of finding a balance and living with herniated discs. She may opt in for surgery later, but for now she is managing and healing.
Anyway, while she was horizontal and unable to move without excruciating pain, I was in her toolbox to help her manage and move toward getting pain free. As I was working with her it felt so empowering to be back doing the work I love and I thought, “I could do this.”
So now I’m not doing 12 hours in a massage room in a day the way I was. I’m doing a limited number of massages to spare my fingers. But it feels great to be back doing what I love, helping people get out of pain, and reconnecting with the people I miss.
