Today at school we had guest instructors and we spent the whole time with class discussions and hands on demos by these guys. One was the owner of Southeastern School of Neuromuscular and Massage Therapy....there are currently 6 campuses throughout the south east I think...It was so great to meet him and learn his story, and watch him in action. I know practice is the key to anything and the more I get my hands on people and familiarize myself with what I'm feeling without seeing, the better intuition I'll have. I think it's kind of like quilting in a way. I know I can thread that bobbin and insert it in the quilting machine, underneath the quilt, without ever looking and I'm right dead on because perception increases with practice. I started out having to replace the bobbin under there by peeking under the quilt....making sure everything went just so. Now I can just reach under there blind and it's like nothing at all to replace that bobbin. I'm looking forward to being that perceptive about what I feel when I have my hands on treating people through massage therapy.
Having the drawing for the quilts today was really fun too! I wish I could have done one for all of the graduates, but there was just too many of them for that to be feasible or even obtainable and realistic....so collecting names from everyone, and having the instructor draw the names was very fun :c)
The pics I got aren't the greatest, but I did get pictures! I was really touched by the big hug I got from Shaun when his name was drawn! He is such a big guy, but quiet and gentle. I think that's the most open I've seen him ever! (Quilts have a way of doing that to people?)
