Recently I asked myself why it feels important for me to get a massage. Is it because I give them so often and long for the receiving experience? Am I just trying to follow my own advice for clients? Do I simply need my muscle tightness relaxed? To some degree I can say yes to all of these. But what I discovered as the main reason I'm drawn to receive massage regularly is in caring for myself and receiving from someone who loves what they do and is nurturing in how they do it, while I enjoy taking it in.
