Massage & Self Consciousness

We recently stumbled upon a beautiful blog post by Megan Spence, a bodyworker from Brooklyn, New York, about the often thought of and rarely discussed topic of massage & self consciousness. We found her writing to be inspiring, delving into the realms of our own body acceptance & perception of ourselves. This is a topic massage therapist often talk about amongst themselves but clients feel to shy to ask us – Do you think I’m gross?

“Over the years, friends and acquaintances have remarked either that they would like to get a massage but are too self-conscious, or they have asked how I deal with “gross” clients. Seriously. People have asked. And my answer? Clients aren’t gross. Bodies aren’t gross. You aren’t gross.”

Many thanks to Megan for allowing us to link to her words!
