Push on the Pain and Breath

My masseuse Dan finds the knots, gently pushes on them and asks me to breath into the spot. At first it is painful and then, magically, my body lets go and the knot is reduced in size - eventually it disappears. That's how I've been this past week. Instead of ignoring the myriad feelings of an unexpectedly ended relationship I sit with it, feel it, breath into the spot and now it is 80% relieved.

Good thing I have a massage scheduled today with Dan. Maybe he can help get that last 20% down to 10% or less.
