A bit about me. I am a 32.75-year-old female living in Vancouver, BC, Canada. I am an RMT (Registered Massage Therapist) by trade and have been since I graduated in 2003. I was drawn to the field of massage therapy because it was one where I could be in service to others, “help others” is what I said in the interview when asked.
What I have learned along the way is that I was drawn to this field for some very specific reasons. Little did I know when I started that my own personal and spiritual journey would be intricately interwoven into my chosen career. I think that due to having my hands on people in a therapeutic context has been a huge factor in my journey. When a person does either hands on body work, counselling, or both, you find out that more than just the physical or emotional aspects of the work are taking place during that treatment. Because I felt like there is more, I started asking “what is it”? Even before I had entered my field, I was already asking why things are the way they are, and had some sort of ‘knowing’ that there was more to life than what we are lead to believe, perceive and see.
With your help, if you are interested, I plan to explore the “more” (aka conscious awareness). I will share my theories, stories and experiences as a way to inspire discussion.
