“The only true wisdom is in knowing you know nothing.”
When a young therapist eager to fulfill the promises of his/her professional training first realizes the limitations of her abilities she assumes that she does not know enough. Therapists desperate to find a tool to help their patients dwell into studying new approaches since the old did not produce the desired outcomes.
New modalities surface regularly promising great results. Kinesio taping, Myofascial release, Cranio sacral therapy etc. Fortunately the new modalities can help in many cases; yet there are patients in every therapists care who just do not get better regardless what modalities a therapist knows or uses.
"Once we accept our limits, we go beyond them.”
What can one do when one realizes their professions limits? Look outside their profession to supplement the missing components.
There is lots to help a therapist achieve better results other than massage and exercise. Our modern world suggests wholesome nutrition, supplementation in a capsule, meditation etc. Introducing other modalities do bring better results helps the child to overcome several physio-therapeutic limitations.
A physio-therapeutic approach co-working with other professions is more successful but does not bring 100% results. There are therapists and clients who are "stuck" in every practice.
“Unless you try to do something beyond what you have already mastered, you will never grow.”
Ralph Waldo Emerson
After years of searching and studying but getting only partial improvement with clients, I realized that the new modalities are a result of desperate therapist searching for better outcomes just like I do.
My continual search led me to the conclusion that there is one common dominator in all professions of the body.
I turned to seek answers in the psyche. The personality, the soul of the individual.
"Never mistake knowledge for wisdom. One helps you make a living; the other helps you make a life.”
With the new perspective I started to observe the children's self image during different movement patterns and our relationship during sessions.
I found that to achieve results I had to "hear" their level of consciousness regarding the asked movement pattern. I also had to learn to "speak" to them on that level of consciousness ie. via their "language". I had to get into their world, their understanding, their consciousness. Parents started calling me "baby whisperer".
“I am enough of an artist to draw freely upon my imagination. Imagination is more important than knowledge. Knowledge is limited. Imagination encircles the world.”
My experiences took me deep into the mysteries of my own, and the children's psyche. My life became full of wonder, excitement and took me into the world of miracles. Firs it felt like I am imagining. Imagining that I understand, that I communicate without words.
Than in became reality. The children were getting better.
Slowly, but always improving. Joy has returned.
Movement through consciousness was born.
Movement through consciousnesses brings joy to therapy.
It celebrates every little achievement. It brings hope back into the hearts.
It focuses on life.
“I have been and still am a seeker, but I have ceased to question stars and books; I have begun to listen to the teaching my blood whispers to me.”
