sleep well…

do what you do before bed.

put your favorite music on.

light a lavender candle.

come over and sit with me.

we’re not going to talk.

we won’t even share a glance.

just snuggle down in the pillows.

listen to the music.

let your mind go where it will.

i have warm, clean hands.

i’ll take your right hand, in my left.

supporting it, as i work on the pressure points of your thumb…the web between thumb and index finger…the pressure points of your index finger…web between index and middle finger…the pressure points of your middle finger…web between middle and ring finger…the pressure points of your ring finger…web between ring and pinkie finger…pressure points of pinkie finger…pressure points of palm and wrist. i repeat the process with your left hand.

stay there.

i’m going to wash my hands.

and then, i’m going to rub your right foot. i work on the pressure points of your big toe…the web between big toe and second toe…pressure points of second toe…the web between second and third toe…pressure points of third toe…the web between third and fourth toe…pressure points of fourth toe…the web between fourth and pinkie toe…pressure points of pinkie toe…pressure points of arch, heel, and ankle. i repeat the process with your left foot.

i’m going to wash my hands.

scoot forward a little bit, please.

i’m working on your temples first and then moving down to jaws…relieving stress and tension. i massage your scalp and the base of your skull. i finish by rubbing your neck and shoulders.

i’m getting up.

i’m going to help you up.

do what you need to do.

i will blow out the candle, put a kiss on your forehead, bid you a goodnight, and leave you to slumber until morning.
