Do you realize the impact your massage therapy work has on every aspect of your client’s life?
I was sitting with the family, watching “The Voice”, and I heard one of the contestant’s fathers giving her a pep talk before she went on stage.
“People aren’t going to remember what you said. They’re not going to remember what you did. They’re only going to remember how it makes them feel.”
This profession of massage therapy is also a gift, because we’re in a powerful position to impact the physical body of our client. We help them increase circulation, relax muscles, or release tension and increase range of motion in joints.
In Lomi Lomi, we have the ability to also impact someone emotionally through loving touch. We hold a beautiful space that’s safe for someone to be able to soften and completely let go.
The foundation of the work we do in Lomi Lomi is spiritual. This is just one unique aspect of our work within the field of massage therapy.
Lomi Lomi practitioners have the ability to affect change on the level of the soul and spirit. We hold an amazing space for clients to release pain, suffering, blockages, even old traumas.
What an honored position to be in, where someone trusts us enough to shift their perspective and change their whole life!
I was teaching in Europe this summer and had the opportunity to speak with a woman who shared her experience at Ho’omana Spa Maui. After receiving a massage from one of our Lomi specialists, she would normally have walked out onto the deck to light a cigarette.
However, this time she had a new thought.:
“Why would I do that? I’m feeling so good. My body was just held with such beautiful Aloha that I don’t even have a desire to put another cigarette in my mouth.”
She quit smoking cigarettes that very day and hasn’t had one since.
Furthermore, since that moment so much has changed in her life. She had called in the partner she wanted to stand beside her and manifested the perfect lane in her career path.
It all began with a decision to begin to caretake her own spirit. The direct result of being taken care of on the massage table.
Even if you’re not a massage therapist, with every interaction we have that same ability to make an impact on another human being.
Take the opportunity to make them feel something, to remember something about who they truly are. Create a sacred space for the people around you to become the person they really want to be and manifest the desires of the heart.
What a gift.
I’m filled with gratitude for the gift that massage and lomi lomi Hawaiian healing has been to me over over 20 years of being in this profession. The work we do as therapists is it’s own special reward.
