You guessed it! Austin Body Therapeutic Center has officially turned 21! And we did a little table for two outdoor dinner celebration. My first time to a restaurant since the pandemic.
The first signs of autumn have always inspired me. Taking a glance back in time, fall has brought me a variety of new beginnings. One of those happened twenty-one years ago. And if I am honest, I just remember it being subtle and sweet. I bought my first new home with the purpose of tucking a brand-new bodywork practice inside.
I picked it for being the last house on a dead-end street. Literally where the sidewalk ends. Its entrance a covered courtyard with its only view from the massage room. It felt like coming into a little hideaway from the city. And though Austin has grown in leaps and bounds around us, this space still feels pretty much the same. A safe haven. I know at the time, I didn’t even realize how important a safe haven really was. How in order for a body to truly heal it has to feel safe. To be truly present with another is the best gift you can offer.
So thank you all for the gift of having a practice that is still going strong because of you.
