The Power of Empathy in Massage Therapy

Empathy supposes a fusion between self and other, between subject and object. In massage therapy and other healing professions, you also need to be able to withdraw from that connection and move on to another client.


Empathy can be a helpful dimension to your therapeutic practice. By nurturing it and keeping it in balance, you may be able to add to your effectiveness as a healer.
