Based on a simple truth! We therapists are not magicians – we simply aid ones body natural ability to heal it self. The very second you read this, your body being that amazing mechanism that it is, is working constantly to keep you (and me) healthy. As a therapist what I do, is boost that process by increasing your blood circulation, release toxins and relieve muscle tension where needed.
What it takes then to be a good therapist? Well, I think it comes down to three things:
- A strong sense of touch – being able to spot the issue and understand it (that’s innate and can’t be taught)
- Have a good technique
- Love for it (that’s also innate and can’t be taught)
