Massage Therapist’s Work Deepened by Playing Guided Imagery in Session

26 Nov

We got this note attached to an order for several CDs.  

This massage therapist would appreciate hearing from any other practitioners who have some experience with combining guided imagery with their massotherapy or energy/biofield therapy practice.  So please post something if you have the time.  Here is his note:

I’m a massage therapist with a large, long-standing practice outside of Minneapolis. I always say that I’m always learning from my clients.  Last week I most definitely did. 

A new client brought the Healing Trauma CD with her, for me to play while I worked on her.  Clients bring in their favorite music to sessions from time to time, but this was the first request I’d gotten to play guided imagery during a session.

It proved to be a powerful experience for both of us.  The work I did was deepened and further potentiated by the imagery.  I suspect that the imagery experience was deepened and further potentiated by the deep tissue massage and acupoint work I was providing. 

It was a real eye opener. I intend to experiment more with using guided imagery in my massotherapy practice with selected clients.  I would like to hear from any other practitioners  who have experiences with this combination.

Thank you in advance.
