Salvere Blog: Building Your Team

January 28, 2019
team puzzleAs we discussed in our last blog we want to take her deeper look into utilizing various modalities keep your body running in good condition. We like to encourage our clients to develop a team of people to help them maintain optimal movement and advise when something does not feel quite right.
Like your car or your house, you utilize various professionals for different problems. For example, you wouldn’t call the roofer to fix your plumbing. Now, lets take this mindset to our bodies.
First thing to remember you are in charge of your own body. Give feedback and as much information as you can when talking to someone. For instance, provide details on any old injuries, illnesses, accidents, child birth issues, medications, etc. Find people to be on your team that ask for and want to listen to what you tell them. Your feedback provides the road map for us to help uncover what might be the cause.
Second, be sure they’re willing to talk to other people on your team to help you feel your best. Encourage conversations and ask a lot of questions. Expect the same from each and every practitioner! Do they receive your feedback and implement it into their treatment plan? Do they follow up after your initial sessions to get to know more about how your body responds?
Finally, change practitioners if someone does not listen or let you be the one in charge of your body. Do you job and follow thru on the suggestions and if something makes it worse, better or no different, give that feedback. Often we let things go and it takes time to uncover what might be the root cause. It takes time for someone new to learn your body. Don’t wait too long if you see little to no progress. For instance, you may need to go through one or two massage therapists before you find the one that works for you.
Pain does not mean that the problem started there! Start when it’s minor, be patient with the process and do you part outside of your time with the practitioner. Yes, it takes an investment in time and money. Find partners willing to be on the journey with you, in a positive environment.
