Why does she always ask me that? 

If we’ve had more than one session you made have noticed that I start most pre-session interviews with the same question. 

‘What is your goal for today?’

Sound familiar? There are several reasons why I do this. But first,  I’ll share what naturally occurs to some clients:

A. I forgot everything we did before. 

This patently untrue. Not only do I keep copious charts, I actually care about your needs, your history, and your desired outcomes. 

Here are a few reasons why I DO ask this question in almost every session.

1.  We change. We fall off ladders painting our bedroom. We his our heads on open cabinet doors whilst unloading the dishwasher. We go through emotional trauma. We lose jobs, end marriages and decide to start Couch to 5k programs. 

Each of this changes are carried around with us. Our needs in the Therapeutic environment change from week to week and I truly want you to get the most out of our time.

B.I’m also very goal oriented in my work. I feel like our effort is best served by working together to achieve a common goal. In order to do that, we need to adjust occasionally. 

In almost 16years, I’ve never given the same massage twice and I don’t intend to. You deserve all my effort, passion for learning, and creativity each time you are in my table. So please pardon the fact that I start with the same question every time, and I’ll continue to keep helping you meet your needs. 

It is my priveledge.
