The Somatic Reality of Love

"Love is a bodied truth, a somatic reality" - Stanley KelemanThere is much to be said and argued on the subject of love.  Zillions of books, songs and movies provide endless interpretations, many we can all relate to.  For this alone, it can be plainly seen how love is a truth that lives in us all.  Something we were…See More

A Gripe

This picture here shows what I was hoping to receive today, not what I got.I received a massage today from a set of hands that had so much tension in them, I almost wanted to switch places with the therapist and help the girl out.Good body mechanics have been hammered into our brains at school, with soft hands being among the most important if one wants to have a career that lasts more than a year. Quite frankly, I don't know how this therapist makes it though a day at Massage Envy with EIGHT…See More

She has been through the wringer.Her latest hernia repair has been tough to get over and the initial need of pain killers made it difficult to go to the bathroom. Naturally, after a while of chronic constipation, her intestine became inflamed and infected.Horrible cramps brought us back to the hospital for a CAT scan…See More

Calm after chaos

I am a bad blogger. I let my last semester at school suck away my energy and motivation to sit down and write. The whole point of this blog is to share my reflections of school as I go through them, not give a three month re-cap. This semester was an interesting one indeed, but telling about it now in summary would be quite the bore.While I was learning a great deal in the class room between boney landmarks, muscle attachments, new stroke techniques and giving massage to the public, I probably…See More
