In ABMP’s latest edition, Douglas Nelson wrote about a massage session he was conducting. His patient said, “What you do is so important”. He replied, “Thank you. I am a complete stranger, yet they allow me to contact and explore where they feel discomfort. I have never taken that for granted. And, people do this at their most vulnerable time, physically or emotionally”. I found this true with myself and, in differing degrees, with people I’ve met, patients, and lifelong friends.
