speak your mind check out "Soothing moms' aches and pains" on page 102 Who needs a massage the most?  Stressed-out, single mothers with one or more children— they don't have a partner to unload some of the burdens throughout the day or someone's shoulder to cry on when the going gets tough. They can have time to be listened to; to unburden their weary souls; to be pampered, soothed, eased, and just totally relaxed, knowing that this time is just for them. Ceidre Culverwell London, England I have to say, we do. As MTs/healers/bodyworkers, we tend to take care of everyone else and neglect our own health. My goal last June was to make sure I got regular massages. Although I didn't make it to the table most months, I did make it to the chair. If I'm in good health, then I can continue my work with family, friends, and clients. La'arni Ayuma Austin, Texas I work at a pain clinic, and being able to help my clients decrease their use of painkillers and improve their quality of life is one of the most amazing feelings in the world.
