For those who are 'givers',
this testimonial offers a profound insight:
As a massage therapist that's been playing your music in my massage room for what, over a decade now?!! The music invokes a different level of relaxation and overall feeling in the mind and body when I am listening to it as a "receiver" of massage than when I am "giving" the massage. I just noticed it this last week.
I think as the "giver" I am focused on my client and just appreciate the tempo and mode of the background music. As the "receiver" I am more focused on "me", my feelings, emotions, state of body and mind. At first I didn't even realize my friend had your music playing. Didn't notice, no clue. But at a point in the massage while I was super relaxed, I had the AhhHaa moment realizing it was indeed Amy Camie playing the harp. I didn't say a word, I just became focused and noticed how different I felt as I "let" the music sort of soak in.
Funny after so many years that I just had this massage music revelation! Sometimes I get a massage and I absolutely abhor the music being played. Annoying! Or I like it, but it really doesn't touch me, so to speak.
I am chalking this up to life, age, wisdom, experiences and always changing and evolving into new seasons of life. Profound, yet simple.
