MIND OF AN MT The Middle Way When Clients Vent By Carrie Jones Let's have an open discussion of what it means to live life in the middle, also known as the Middle Way or the Way of Zen. The Middle Way is a term used in Buddhism that, in its simplest definition, means a balanced approach to life. But to some, the Middle Way approach is just another way of saying "riding the fence" or "playing both sides." I want to look at this from the angle of our profession. I have been a massage therapist for over 15 years. Ideally, we want our clients to relax and receive their massage for both the emotional and physical effects it can have on the body-mind connection. However, I am seeing a rise in clients who want to talk throughout their treatment. I have listened to just about every Mind of an MT provides a space for your voice in the pages of Massage & Bodywork magazine. Have your own insights or inspiration to share? We'd like to hear from you. Email
