The most sophisticated tool in the known universe

“The human hand, acting in concert with the heart, mind and spirit, is arguably the most sophisticated tool in the known physical universe. With its pressure and warmth, guided by intelligence, care and inspiration, we can work with muscles and fascia, literally remodelling the human form and dramatically altering each and every human function.”

Reawaken the client to his living beauty

I love this quote from David Lauterstein from Massage Magazine:

“What is astonishing is how often clients come to us having completely forgotten or never having known what miracles they are anatomically, physiologically, and psychologically. They have often lost the sense it is an incredible gift to be alive.

When giving a massage, the therapist has the responsibility to help reawaken the client to his living beauty; to help him feel the presence of goodness; and to help him recognize important inner truths. … All we need to do is work with respect and wonder, and have the knowledge of anatomy to reawaken the person to the marvel she is. In touch, wonder is coupled with joy.”
