Kim's words of advice on finding a therapist of any kind, be it a psychiatrist, doctor, massage therapist, sex worker, or what-have-you: never settle. I ran into this thought yet again because I plan to never see this massage therapist I saw today ever again, and yet I found myself using the same mental excuses I've heard other friends use before coming to that thought: "maybe they're right" "they're the expert" and, most insidiously, "I wouldn't want to offend them."

BZZZZT. You go to a therapist because you expect them to serve your needs. If they aren't hearing your needs or even if they just had a bad day that causes them to underserve you, they're not doing their job right. Leave. Pass "GO".

Is that a tough standard? Hell no. It's creating a better market of people who can better serve others. I don't want to be a part of a field where clients walk away unhappy; no self-respecting therapist would.

Meanwhile, my stomach still hurts, although the therapist did show me a stretch I can use to wring out my back a bit better. Sigh.
