My friend, M, is a massage therapist. Last weekend I complained about constant pain in my shoulder. As she began to rub it, my knees buckled.
"You need to stand with your shoulders back. Look at you, you're slouching," she said.
"I am?" I'd never thought of myself as a sloucher.
"You're holding everything in here. Did you know that the left side of your body represents your father and the right side represents your mother?"
"What?" I asked.
"The stress you hold for your parents physically manifests itself in your body. Father on the left, mother on the right."
"Seriously?" I asked.
"Seriously," she said. Then she hit another pressure point and I yelped.
We took a quick poll among the people around us and her theory seemed to hold up.
Does that theory stand true for you?
