(Back) in good hands

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.
