Warm Hands, Warm Heart

 by Ezekiel O'Brien in Life, Massage

One of the joys of spending time in a new area as a skilled massage therapist is getting to build a new practice and meet different and interesting clients. And, one of the anxieties of touching new clients as a severe traumatic brain injury survivor is that my circulation is not good and my hands are cold.

It is tough to lead with cold hands in the massage business.

A couple a weeks ago, I met a lovely man who is a massage connoisseur whom I hope turns into a regular client. In the process of doing the pre-massage intake interview, I divulged my frustration at my cold first contact.

Our initial massage went well and he rebooked for a couple of weeks later. When I arrived for the second session, he informed me that I had a gift but I had to close my eyes. I can read people well, and I trusted him and closed my eyes. He placed a USB-charged hand warmer in my hands. I had no idea such a lovely comforting product existed.

Again, one of the greatest things about touching new clients deeply is getting to meet all the love the world has to offer.
