I'm irked. I am one of many independent business persons in a small facility. I work as a massage therapist. Let me start by saying that I had to learn a great deal about the human body-anatomy, kinesiology, myology, pathology, and of course massage. I am also the on-site yoga instructor (I have 14 years experience). Anyway, I just finished teaching a yoga class and found L, as we will call her, talking to a former student of mine. L is a reiki practitioner. My former student was explaining that she was out due to a torn rotator cuff she had suffered two months ago. She was in physical therapy. Of course, I told her that I could help her with massage and asked which muscle exactly she had injured. She didn't know, so I wanted to assess her range of motion and was in the midst of asking her to lift her arm when L started saying, 'No, don't make her do that. That's not a good idea.' Long story short. After my former student left, I took L aside to explain that I was doing what was in the scope of my practice and that she was NOT to demean my judgement in front of a client again. I mean, REALLY. I didn't go through a gruelling course in school and get straight A's to be supervised by some energy worker that is completely untrained in my field. Yes, I'm a pissed off yoga instructor. Apparently, she is very angered with me and doesn't want to let it go, but I also refuse to let up on my ground. Anyone else have to deal with this kind of crap? How do you deal with it?
