Why patients have been crying in my massage therapy office.
(And no, it’s not because treatment hurts or I’m mean.)
It can be exhausting just to think about your to-do list.
They are exhausted. They are frustrated. They feel helpless. And it all comes out in the pre-massage consultation. (Remember, unlike other massage therapists in the area, I don’t spend a mere 3-5 minutes in consultation with you; we spend almost an hour together before you even get on the table.)
YOU ARE NOT ALONE.
Feeling exhausted, frustrated, and helpless (as well as angry, cranky, sad, depressed) is COMMON among chronic pain sufferers.
Every time you try something new and it doesn’t work, it gets a little worse. Every doctor’s visit, every pill, every PT visit. You feel more and more helpless and more and more trapped by your dysfunctional meat suit.
Can I help every single person? No. I’d love to be able to.
Did I help most of the patients I’ve seen over the last 13 years? Yes.
Am I honest about whether or not I think my treatments are helping you? Yes. All I truly care about is that you are getting what you need to feel and function better; if that’s me, great. If it’s not, that’s okay too.
If you’d like to take the first step to see if and how I can help, book a New Patient Welcome Visit online or call 941-321-5311.
