The Path to New

Yesterday, in the pursuit of flexibility and energy, I allowed myself to be pulled and twisted into knots before being stretched out of them. This is Thai massage, a practice where masseuse actively leverages the subject’s body using her hands, elbows, knees, feet in order to align the ten major sen. When all is aligned in the body, so the theory goes, energy flows properly. A body feels better, ready to face the days ahead. I don’t necessarily believe this so I went in with a healthy dose of skepticism. And yet I did it anyway. Against this backdrop, anything feels possible.
