a little update for May 2018

Hello dear readers!

I have been back from Massage school for over two weeks now (!!) And my bodywork practice is already picking up – hence not many posts here recently.

I am feeling several desires pulling at me, tugging, yanking, urging. One influence wants me to get as many days full of clients as possible (three clients / day is my current limit – in a couple months that might go up to four) and to schedule a few weeks out so I have a full calendar.

Another smaller timid subtle gentler voice wants me to rest and relax, to take a day off every once in a while, to go slow, to do Slow Eye Rolls – a technique from Zapchen Somatics which is very therapeutic and relaxing. It wants to exchange with a good bodyworker once / week at least to maintain some semblance of self care and it wants to find my own spiritual / self care practices which are extremely gentle, slow, and deeply resourcing.

And then yet another need is to study. I have one assignment left for massage school – but it is a big one (at least twenty hours left on it) and once I finish that, I can sign up for the national massage exam – the MBLEX. So I get in an hour or two of studying when I can. This is starting to become urgent however, so I’m guessing tomorrow might be a four or five hour binge of studying and workbooks and completion.

I also need to unpack my body mind and soul. My journey to Colorado was something powerful and special. I am noticing positive changes – bringing some of the Sacredness of Crestone Colorado back with me. Somehow in the midst of all this unpacking, I am continuing to see and treat clients! Like I said about two or three / day!

What I love about the bodywork I am doing, for the most part, every session is unique. Having a number of modalities under my belt allows me to do Integrated Reflexology or Foot Shiatsu, or 30 mins of Shiatsu blended with Craniosacral Therapy, or Swedish Massage with 20 – 30 mins of Acupressure. I love the creativity that is possible, I love how I don’t know what is going to arise, and I both love and internally cringe when a client says, “You know Kirby, you seem very knowledgeable about this, what do you think would be best for me?” I am being stretched in a good way!

Actually, I’m thinking I need to finalize an idea I have been toying with – that is to come up with a protocol of muscle testing to determine what is best for a client. Using muscle testing to discern what is the priority treatment(s) for them at that moment.

Oh – and I am doing a few astrology interpretations as well! Wow 🙂

If you miss me for a week or two, now you know what I am up to!

Feel free to drop me a comment or question.

Thank you reading!
