My goal is that you fully experience
rest and haven working with me.
Though I am here to guide structural correction and provide safe and helpful touch, please remember that you are in control.
Recognize that there really are two kinds of pain: “Good pain” and “bad pain”.
“Bad pain” makes you tense, want to pull away or run away. “Good pain” is the pain or discomfort that indicates that we are working in the right area. This discomfort is mild, manageable and “hurts so good” – we will call it “work”. It is also the controllable, quickly resolving soreness that comes from getting stronger. Sometimes you will appreciate this mild, therapeutic “work”, but at other times, you will want to be comforted and refreshed. Both rest and work are important aspects of physical therapy. It is important to let me know how you are feeling and what would be most helpful.
