This is a podcast or regularly released reggae show/DJ from France. I love hearing his voice speak in French when announcing show and artists. He plays a lot of new roots music and also has special dub and dancehall shows as well. I really love his selection and mixing!
I love this show!!!!!! Selector Jonathan does not fake any Jamaican accents. He comes across very authentic and so knowledgeable and passionate about Reggae. This show is so unique in that he will bring you reggae from all over the world. It is really fun because he broadcast on Western Michigan College Radio show. His shows are often tailored to specific types of Reggae or Reggae from specific places in the world. I highly recommend his weekly show and he makes all shows available for download with a huge archive. He has download link from Mix Cloud page
1. Find a specialist. Why are you seeking massage? To feel relaxed, to work out 'kinks' in your body, to move stagnant lymphatic fluid? There are many specialists within the massage world, like prenatal, sports injury, abdominal and oncology therapists to name a few. The variance between massage practitioners and their proficiency levels can be quite staggering. Therapists that specialize are likely to have extensive extra curricular education and a drive to be increasingly proficient in their modality.
2. Find a therapist in private practice. Wonderful and skill full therapists are happily employed at spas and clinics, however as a generalization, the most competent and passionate therapists are the ones who venture out to build their private practices. On line reviews of individuals are more consistent than reviews of massage establishments, where high employee turn over rates is often the norm.
3. Speak Up! Unfortunately it is way too common of an experience for people to be unhappy while on the massage table receiving their massage. From grinding their teeth to holding their breath, they are waiting for the discomfort to stop. A good therapist should get verbal consent initially regarding their treatment plan and intermittently throughout the session regarding satisfaction levels. I feel it is important to let our therapists know immediately if we would like an adjustment to pressure, technique and or position for example. A good therapist will be grateful for your feedback because they want you to be happy first. You have paid for the session and deserve the caring attention for the entirety of it.
4. Book your massage ahead of time. Even as a therapist, I'm guilty of waiting until it is too late and trying to book a massage last minute. If we wait until we are in pain to schedule ourselves a session, we may compromise our options and higher standards just for immediacy. There are reasons why good therapists are booked out in advance. Try calling ahead to talk to your therapist on phone, its a useful way to gauge their receptivity and proficiency.
Empathy to me, is the experience of a deep part of myself being heard and recognized. I believe our intrinsic need for empathy is very deep. We are complex beings with many aspects of ourselves that yearn to be acknowledged. from birth until now, Every experience adds more facets of ourselves that want empathy, to be shared and to be reflected.
Touch can be empathetic. I use my hands as well as my ears to listen. Practice sharing your empathetic presence with someone. When you listen to them with your ears and hands, listen from your heart, not your head. Practice letting the time you choose to spend with them be 'their' time. With a gentle steadiness practicing being their companion, so they may feel recognized.
