Maybe you got into it for service to humanity. Maybe you got into it because, whatever your modality, it saved you at some point in your life and you need to share that experience with others. Maybe the drive comes from an unknowable place. It doesn’t matter though, because you’re here now. You’re a healer.
You’re an artist too. If that word rubs you the wrong way with its specificity let’s try ’ You are a creative’. You use your knowledge and innovation to trigger a change in your patient’s body. They, like patrons of the arts, can then do whatever they want with your treatment. But you made it. You created that trigger. That’s why you’re an artist.
