Being a client makes you a better therapist. Besides the obvious self-care benefits, it heightens your awareness of good bodywork and the specifics that make or break a session. Listen as Cindy Williams puts on her professional educator hat and details moments from a challenging bodywork session where she was the client and her suggestions for improvement.
Cindy has spent the last 20 years in private practice, and as a school instructor, administrator, curriculum developer, and mentor. In 2010, she joined the ABMP Education Team as a school liaison, then continued her work as a content writer and facilitator for ABMP’s Instructors on the Front Lines program. She currently works as a freelance educational content writer. Combining her training in massage and polarity therapies with her extensive background as a yoga practitioner and instructor, she loves teaching how the body operates holistically and how each component of the individual must be addressed in order to create change. Cindy also writes the Back to Basics column for Massage & Bodywork magazine.
