If we have a pain, bodily or emotionally, our first
reaction or response may be to wish it would go away as soon as possible.
Yet the cause of pains, some pains at least, may be as warnings that something is wrong physically (part of our body), or troubling our minds (part of our soul or spirit), and these may be interlinked at times. With some massage, some pain may be caused, or seemingly feel worse, as things are done to get to the root of conditions.
Have a massage if needed. The aim is to help, to do good,
not sadistically inflict pain and end up leaving a massage session worse than
when you started it!
