A client recently commented that they had a feeling of “sangfroid” after receiving a massage from me at my massage practice in York.
I had to look up the meaning of sangfroid… According to my dictionary it means “Freedom from agitation”.
As my client had arrived in a state of quite some stress due to various pressures, this was an achievement.
Massage can be very relaxing and calming. Many clients fall asleep during a massage. They are often tempted to apologise afterwards. I always assure them that there is no need to apologise as all they were doing were showing how relaxed they felt.
That feeling of calmness so often brought about by massage can be an invaluable antidote to the stress of modern life.
