My husband surprised me yesterday with a massage (yay!)
Sadly, the massage therapist, while working on my legs decided to comment on the scars on them. I told her it was nothing I wished to talk about and went back to trying to relax.
Then when she was working on my arms she went on about the scars there. I told her again that I didn't want to talk about it but she just wouldn't let it go. "Abusive boyfriend? Abusive parents?"
Yes lady, I am a former cutter. I am 6 years sober. Damn, let it go!
Maybe when a client says they don't want to talk about it they mean that they DON'T WANT TO TALK ABOUT IT! I pay a very good therapist to talk about that stuff, I just want a blinking massage!
I wound up asking for another masseuse and there wasn't one available so I rescheduled for another day.
