22 SO, WHY ARE MY CLIENTS CRYING AND MOANING AND BITCHING? IF MASSAGE PROMOTES CALMING AND THE PARASYMPATHETIC SYSTEM, THEN WHAT GIVES?

23 S.D.M.L.B. State Dependent Memory, Learning and Behaviour State Dependent Memory, Learning and Behaviour The linking of memory to particular states of the mind/body. The linking of memory to particular states of the mind/body. The linking of particular states of the mind/body to memory (and behaviour) The linking of particular states of the mind/body to memory (and behaviour)

24 Clients reveal emotional concerns that have sublimated as physical traumas. As massage releases physical trauma, related emotions may also be released in various ways – talktears body movements breathing patterns

25 WHAT IS HEALING?

26 Healing is an intensely personal, subjective experience involving a reconciliation of the meaning an individual ascribes to distressing events with his or her perception of wholeness as a person Healing is an intensely personal, subjective experience involving a reconciliation of the meaning an individual ascribes to distressing events with his or her perception of wholeness as a person Accessed 26/04/2008

27 You are not the healer You are a mechanism in the individual’s healing process

28 H.A.R.M.O.N.Y. Happy – the contented satisfaction of feeling you are doing what you are meant to do. Happy – the contented satisfaction of feeling you are doing what you are meant to do. Able – having the capacity and the capability to act. Able – having the capacity and the capability to act. Responsive – to be empathetically aware and sensitive in your reactions Responsive – to be empathetically aware and sensitive in your reactions Mindful – having an awareness of the present moment, uninhibited by judgement. Mindful – having an awareness of the present moment, uninhibited by judgement. Open – acting with unconditional positive regard Open – acting with unconditional positive regard Nascent – sensing that something new is coming into existence. Nascent – sensing that something new is coming into existence. Yes – no barrier to what is being created - Positive Yes – no barrier to what is being created - Positive (Hill:2006)

29 PLACEBO RESPONSE We can now understand that any drug that alters any aspect of the body’s sensory- perceptual or physiological responsiveness on any level can disrupt the more-or-less fragile state-dependent encoding of symptoms and thereby evoke a “nonspecific” but very real healing effect that we can call the “placebo response”. Rossi (1993)

30 Techniques

31 1. THE PROBLEM IS A MESSAGE A problem is something you have to stop for and fix. A message is something that tells you what you need and points to where you can go.

32 2. THAT’S INTERESTING. The world is full of information and every bit of it is interesting.

33 3. WHAT CAN I CREATE? When you give up the distracting game of winning and losing, you are left with the exciting prospects of what you can create.

34 4. WOW! To be fascinated by the events of another person’s life makes every life worth examining

35 5. REPETITION Repeating what has just been said with involved enthusiasm supports what was said and entreats what is yet to be said.

36 6. SHARED PERSONAL EXPERIENCE To show empathy not just by sympathetic intent, but also by personal experience. This, however, must be very gentle and supportive. CAUTIONS: Clients can easily feel that they are not special; that you think you know everything; and you can be sorely tempted to give advice as if you know the answer.

37 Remember: everyone enjoys a little massage
