Pillow me…

Ellen SymonsBy: Ellen Symons, RMT
Ellen is a registered massage therapist and the owner of Body Poets. She finds many poems in her work each day.

Why do we use pillows on the massage table? A client asked me this the other day. There are several biomechanical and postural reasons. There is also the way that being pillowed lets us sink more deeply into relaxation and into letting go of our burdens.

Pillow me

Let my body be cradled
by the loft of down
and fine-textured cotton,

bolstered against the openness
of air and space –

of life,
which could some days
let me fall forever …

Let me rest
against my own edges,
safely held.
