I read <<this article
>> and it made me think of our thread from a week or two ago, about whether we are touchy feely. Do those of you who normally like a lot of personal space feel differently when it's a paying situation? I'm thinking yoga class, massage, fitness, tattoos and piercings.
I'm a touchy feely person and for me it's almost essential that a fitness class includes hands-on adjustment from the teacher. I feel like if I'm not getting the personal attention to my alignment, I'm not really getting my money and effort's worth. Especially stretching and yoga-- PLEASE help me with active stretching. It feels so much more effective. I love getting massages. The shampoo is my favorite part of a haircut.
So do you seek out professional situations involving touch, or avoid them? What about those of you with professions that involve touching-- do you end up feeling more connected to your clients/patients?
