Rubbed the Right Way

Today was really the “final” important practical massage class I had. At this point, I have a fairly complete set of tools for making people feel relaxed and good, and even occasionally help them heal. I still have 6 weeks of class left, but that’ll be a lot about refining my skillset. Now it’s just all about practice, practice, practice. I worked with Christine today and we gave each other a massage lasting about 50 minutes. She did great, and I felt fantastic working through my strokes. The jitters are finally gone. I even managed to gracefully do the draping work.

It’s really pretty great to get those little groans of pleasure here and there. It totally feeds some part of my psyche and brings me a great degree of joy.
