My Entire Body Is Smiling…

3 smiling faces - irene diamond mentor, coach

I remember it so well…  after his first therapy session with me he said, “My Entire Body Is Smiling…”.

This was one of my very first clients when I started my practice in 1985. (YIKES!)

And just yesterday I was told by a new client I was a “Hanukkah Miracle”!

There’ve been many wonderful comments and quotes form clients and patients over the years that make ME SMILE when I think of them.

I KNOW you’ve had some fun things said to you about how wonderful you’ve made a client or patient feel.
It is one of the joys of our professional life, right?

This post has 2 purposes:

  1.  So we all get to read the kind words your clients said about you! (when you post them below)
  2.  To give you a success-strategy for helping you get through the days when it’s hard to keep on keepin’ on.

So, before you read on — please post your top quotes from clients/patients so we can all enjoy.

AND, on to the Biz-Strategy:

Make a written list of every nice compliment, comment, and quote that has been written or said to you.
Write them down and place them in a very public place so both you and your clients can read them.

(You don’t have to include the author’s name unless you want to)

Post this list on your bathroom mirror, on your website, keep it visible at your front desk so people can see them when checking in and out, and in the reception area.

We all have days when we are struggling.

Sometimes we ask ourselves, “Is it worth it?” or “Why am I doing this?” (or things that have a similar, negative vibe that might be holding us back.)

So, once you have your on-going list of great things people have said about you, you can focus on them.

Remind yourself of them often, use them to spark the brilliance inside of you on the days that might be feeling a little tough.

You DO have brilliant skills that DO provide results for your clients and patients.

Believe in YOUR Brilliance EVERY DAY!

(Now, share below the quotes people have said about you for us all to enjoy)

    Stephanie can do more with my shoulder in 30 minutes than others can do in an hour.

    When I need a massage, she is the first I will call.

    Stephanie’s knowledge of human anatomy allows her pinpoint your pain and soreness.

    Stephanie has found her passion – to heal through massage therapy.

    In the end there is not substitute for Stephanie.

    I’m living with cancer and feel invigorated after each massage.

    Do you have any competition??

  • Paula says:

    I have one client who says he thanks me in his head every time he has run over the last year. At his last session he reminisced that before seeing me his MD said they would have to burn the nerves going to his left leg. Within 2 months that was no longer necessary.
    Another compliment that I received from a client was that she felt like I could see beyond the skin, to the muscles and connective tissues themselves and find the exact problem spots.

  • I’ve kept a comment book in my treatment room for the past 18 years, and I enjoy going back to read them. One is that my client felt as if she had been prayed over.
