It felt like coming home. It had been too long. And my back, neck and hips told the story. There is such a powerful connection between the body and mind, to neglect one is to deprive the other. The two must be nourished in tandem. And so, as I lay there, concentrating on my breath and trying to go with, rather than against, I was reminded how important physical therapies are, alongside and complementary to, talking therapy. I hadn't exactly forgotten, yet this felt like a revelation. There is head knowledge, and there is body wisdom. I guess I got a taste of the latter. My spine will thank me.
