     It takes many, many years of practice to learn how to soften your hands when you become a physical therapist. It takes time to build a reflective practice, to explore your values around “fixing”, “healing”, or “cure”. When I first became a physical therapist I was taught to “go in” and perform a big technique and “fix” or “sort out” a shoulder, hip, or rogue meridian. Hopefully, as we mature as therapists we move away from the therapist-as-healer ideal to the principle of the therapist-as-facilitator. We are here to facilitate our client’s transformation process; we are here to support our client to garner the resources to achieve good mental and physical health.

Uh Oh!
