- cause (someone) to feel confused because they cannot understand or make sense of something:
"one remark he made puzzled me"
- a game, toy, or problem designed to test ingenuity or knowledge.
I like puzzles. I have always liked them. I like the feeling of being puzzled, of being faced with something I cannot understand and I especially like the feeling of making sense of something that previously perplexed me.
Often, clients present themselves in my office with baffling soft tissue issues….that rhymes….I’m into puns too….they’re fun..... It often requires me to put together a customized treatment plan. My bodywork style is non-routine. I have basic protocols that I can draw from, but they are often just starting points to be heavily improvised upon.
Since 1998, I have been studying many different massage, bodywork and movement based techniques in order to help people move more comfortably in their lives. If I don’t figure it out right away, you can be sure that I will be looking for the answer and hopefully getting another chance to solve it. Like I said in the beginning, I like being puzzled…..but I don’t like it for very long.
Give me an idea of what something is supposed to look like or how it works and I will figure it out. I’ll study it, break it down, research it, sleep on it, do whatever I have to. I can be relentless in my pursuit of solving the confounding problem.
