My yoga came after I was in a car accident that left me with 13 pelvic fractures. After the relief I found, all I wanted to do was share the benefits of yoga. Students come to me for a variety of reasons but they are always joyful when their pain leaves.
As for a price, well students won't come for something that is free. I make it a point, however, to tell my students that I only teach so that I will practice myself. If they reap any benefits from my teaching that is great, but I'm teaching for me. They usually smile and then tell me again how happy they are that they feel so well.

Its all about my clients and what I can do to make them forget about whatevers negative going on in there life. At the end of the day I feel so great seeing everyone walk out with a big smile and head high. :)

This is one of the reasons I love what I do. It is so gratifying to help someone. I may reduce their pain or discomfort or it may simply go away all together. To be able to do that for someone within a 50 minute session is really amazing. Granted sometimes you have to see a person many times to get the result you're looking for, but it definitely happens. It is so great to be in a profession that is so positive. We are forever helping people, it's a wonderful thing. There is no price for that, it just warms your heart.

My ultimate goal is always to make the client feel better when they leave. It is up to them to say if the price was worth it or not. If it was, that makes me very happy, if they feel it is not, then they should find another therapist.

no, it's priceless to be able to help relieve someone's pain. As a therapist, I have lots of back pain and have had back pain for years. Massage is what helped me most with my pain and it is what inspired me to become a Massage Therapist in the first place. Pain relief is a huge blessing.

I love giving and helping people with there problems. It feels wonderful when they show you appreciation back whether it is through monetary means or verbally.

Whenever I am able to help a client feel better I feel better myself. My ultimate reason for getting into this career was to help people feel better, ranging from just helping them relax after a stressful day to helping to relieve pain caused by an injury or any other means. As long as the client is happy the price is worth it, if the client isn't happy I would refer them to another therapist who could help them better than I could

It's the reason why I do acupuncture. Simple as.

It's a business I charge a price usually below market at present, as I prefer to be busy rather than average. I offer many packages to allow the client to have options. That being said, we who do this as a calling who's life is all about massage are compassionate and caring people whose goal is to help others with awareness and pain. I have at least minimum prices because I to have value and into days world $ is how we judge a service at face value, results are how we judge a service for repeat purchase. I love that my clients bring their husbands, boyfriends, coworkers, sisters, aunts, fathers, mothers and friends to my table. How that makes me feel I cannot put a price on.

As a Reiki practitioner, I trust the Reiki energy to always benefit the client. Sometimes the results are perceptible eg relief from pain, feeling relaxed, not stressed, improvement in health and wellbeing over time, feeling more balanced and centred/grounded, accelerated recovery from an injury/surgery/illness, it could be a whole lot of other benefits too; sometimes the results are less perceptible immediately.
Perceptible results are obviously an added blessing and wonderful to experience for both the client and myself the practitioner ie I have helped facilitate the client's healing process.

As some one who knows someone closely who suffered with chronic pain most of there life. I don't think there is a price I can put on taking someone out of pain. Also, from personal experience I would have paid anything to the therapist that help relieve my pain . The feeling of being without pain is almost priceless. It is the reason why I do what I do. That's why I became a massage therapist to help heal people.

Of course I put a price on it. I charge for my services. But the satisfaction is priceless.

It is wonderful to help clients reduce their pain and discomfort levels. When they come in after a session and tell you that they were able to sleep all night or they can now have better range of motion in their neck. They finally realize they don't have to just learn to live with pain. That massage is not just a pampering it is a nessary part of life. the price becomes something they can live with because they are becoming healthier.

It is the most satisfying part of the job. To know that you have relieved a persons pain and thay can leave feeling happy and more relaxed. What more could you want, it is priceless.

The price is irrelevant measurement as the amount of pain client is able and willing to release mentally or physical is subjective. According to my experience and knowledge, I have my price list fair to self and affordable to clients. I do my best for them and hope they benefit as much.

Clearing pain short term through massage is good but healing system resonance patterns can clear pain and many health challenges for good.

Hi I am Julia Rhodes , principal colon hydrotherapist at West London Colonics.
What's not so well known is how coffee enemas mediate pain .
Dr Max Gershon used them partly for this purpose in his famous cancer treatments.

It's very gratifying to know that the pain that someone came to me with is gone. What do you mean can I put a price on it; should it be a free treatment; should it be discounted? This question has the tone that I shouldn't charge anyone to relieve them of their pain.

Well, I'm really concerned about how a client feels, over how I personally feel about pain relief or what I get out of it. The price I ask for compensation for my professional knowledge and time is entirely appropriate. Bodywork is an art that I very much enjoy practicing.

Great answer - I try to keep detatched from clients outcome although it is nice when they are happy - what they feel is there path while my energy is my own path. Thank you for sharing.

The fee for helping a client is what enables me to learn more and refine my skills, whilst supporting me financially so that I can make myself more effective and focus on what I do.
As for how much I like what I do? There are two questions which will tell you if you're in the right job for you - these come from Micheal Neill, whose books are excellent.
Q1) if all jobs paid the same, would you still want to do the work you do?
Q2) if you won the lottery tomorrow, would you still do what you do?
For me feeling good is something I choose to do regardless of how I measure my achievements. Of course it's great to be able to show someone how to feel better, but it's the client that does the fixing and the changing, I see myself as an educator, and yes I do love what i do.

There are days when no payment in the world is enough for the rudeness and indignity a client may have exhibited towards myself or my proffession.
Then there are days when the relief from my therapies are well recieved and offers to tip are stated again and again. And then there are days when a free session is given, a karma point massage so to speak, and whether the client is greatful or not, I am happy with my work. At times payment is met through bartering. At the end of the day I may feel the days work was worth my time or not, and it is our time and intentions that truely "pay" us.

I feel great about it. I'm not sure I understand your question, but if I read it right you think people should get pain relief for free? Who got them into pain?

Being able to help anyone as a therapist is priceless whether by helping to support on an energetic level, emotionally with aromas/crystals, or physical pain its rewarding seeing the positive impact it has in all levels of the clients well being.

I feel special and blessed that I was given the gift of healing people with my hands. Not everyone is a good therapist. You have to know the knowledge but also really care about the people. My most said and favorite compliment is that I have such compassionate hands.

The price is £40 an hour - you can book 4 1hour sessions at the Quantum Pain Clinic by emailing me.
It makes no difference to me how I feel: this is what I do.

No you can not put a price on pain relief only on the service you supply, if you ask the client before you treat, how much they wound pay many say anything to be pain free.When your treatments work the look on the face of your clients say it all. THIS IS PRICELESS.
