Welcome to our community of massage, bodywork and reflexology practitioners. Therapists, if it's been more than two weeks, it's time for your massage.
I've gotten pretty good at detaching from the outcome, but my impatience still frustrates me. I know that there are many reasons beyond my control why one person improves at one pace and others at another. I am patient overall, though. Just look at my choice in football teams.

It might be so subtle that we don't notice it, but I had a lady once tell me that the fact that she was starting to get a few hours of sleep at night after getting a massage was simply monumental to her after being told she had fibromyalgia and being sleep-deprived due to pain for nearly 12 years. I had lost focus on something that seemed small to me since she still had a lot of pain during the day, but I'll never forget how she thanked me in tears for giving her those 2 hours of sleep that was so insignificant to me at first.
As for football, it seems that we get an emotional attachment to a particular team for some reason or another and even when they're constantly losing, we're always their biggest fan; we always have hope for next year
