It's All Good, Really

Kate Bartolotta is a newbie to the massage world, but she has some good things to write about what her hands say to her. "When you stretch, you open up space. This is physically true, and emotionally true. When you physically stretch (or allow yourself to be stretched) you create space and allow for greater movement, greater vulnerability and more growth. It’s the same when you stretch yourself emotionally, too. Your physical and emotional selves aren’t separate––stretch one, and you usually stretch the other, too. It isn’t always comfortable at first, but it’s a wonderful thing."

and

"Your weight is the least interesting thing about you. I promise."

Required reading for anyone who touches people for a living, regardless of your modality.
