Return on Intention We hear so much about ROI these days. Everyone wants a return on their investments. But in bodywork, we often focus on another sort of ROI—return on intention. The intent you bring to your session is matched in intensity only by the healing intent of your therapist. You come to relax, soothe pain, or perform better, and you've chosen a therapist who can help you meet your wellness goals. As a complement, your practitioner has followed a personal and professional calling to pursue a career in bodywork, seeking education for the proper tools to address clients' various needs. Making a difference in each client's life is a clear priority. We at Body Sense magazine are your partners as well. We work to ensure that same healing intent is reflected in these pages. This issue addresses two modalities—reiki and infant massage—that very much benefit from the strength of positive intentions. The research backs up the work: patients' healing appears to be enhanced and stress levels appear to be reduced thanks to reiki; infants (and young children) clearly thrive and grow faster when lovingly touched. What a wonderful partnership we all have! So take advantage of it. Recognize and build on the healing intent reflected by you and your therapist. Enjoy and benefit from every minute.
