Space

As a teen in art school my life drawing teacher said to me that it was as important to consider the space on the page as it was the placement of the shapes and lines.  That awareness of space resonated in me and I remind myself of that idea when working with each person and their body.  As the therapist allows for spaciousness in their contact, in their own body, in the pauses between techniques used; then the nervous system has time to integrate treatment.  With this awareness of space and breath, there can be a listening and engaging with the fluid rhythm of the body.
