Bodywork Reminder (Posted on April 8, 2010)

Posted by

“The bodyworker is not an interventionist; she is a facilitator, a diplomatic intermediary between physiological processes that have lost track of one another’s proper functions and goals, between a mind that has forgotten what it needs to know in order to exert harmonious control and a body politic which increasingly utilizes disruptive demonstrations, terrorist tactics, and even the threat of all-out civil war to regain its governor’s attention. Touching hands are not like pharmaceuticals or scalpels. They are like flashlights in a darkened room. The medicine they administer is self-awareness. And for many of our painful conditions this is the aid that is most urgently needed.”

~ Deane Juhan, “Job’s Body, A Handbook for Bodywork”

This quote struck me quite strongly last night as I received a much needed intense massage.
