Massage and the art of touch

I have the great privilege of volunteering with the healing art of massage at Calvary Health Care with the Palliative Patients for years

Does it ever get repetitious or tiresome?  In my experience, massaging is one of the most creative and exquisite forms of expressing what is meaningful and life-giving and soul-lifting within me to share with the greatest respect for the sacredness of the personhood of the one receiving.  And when the 'healing touch' is sensed, I feel there is a delicate, flowing dance between the two of us,soothing and vivifying for both, to the tune of the rhythm of our breath of life in harmony with the rhythm of our compassionate heart, a precious moment of 'heaven on earth'
