As a new citizen to Sydney for less than one year I was honoured to participate as a volunteer in one of the world’s largest fun run: The City2Surf. I was giving post-race massages in the Heart Foundation tent and my work was well appreciated for all the runners on the receiving end.
Most of them were not use to massage, so I took that opportunity to explain to them some of the benefits. Those who exercise and particularly do a growling exercise like City2Surf.
My experience over six months as a massage therapist has given me the opportunity to hear explicitly from my clients their main phsysical concerns.
Behind these words I identify two things. Firstly, the value that they give to their health and, secondly, the struggles that sometimes they have to introduce life changes prolonged.
