This week, I was working on a first-time client in San Rafael who had contacted me for a deep tissue massage. When I got to the part of the massage where I climb on the table and stand on the soles of a client’s feet, he was delighted and said, “No one has ever done that to me before.”
On my recent outcall massage and bodywork visit to Santa Fe, New Mexico, I asked a client during a pre-session intake interview about his exercise habits. He said, “I do lots of yoga.” Intrigued, as I love to practice yoga, I asked him, “what type?” “There is a lady who teaches at the clubhouse and she instructs in Hatha, Vinyasa and Kundalini,” he stated. “Which is your favorite?” I queried. “Kundalini,” he answered.
Just before Thanksgiving 2019, I was walking with my wife to get a morning coffee at Cafenated – a café in North Berkeley – when I was hit with an insatiable desire for electrolytes. Not a preference I normally have, but my desire had a word and I asked my wife to go into the store while I rested.
