I always ask clients, “How do you feel?”  Today the client replies, “I am so sore”, which easily sounds like, “I want more”.  It was an innocent mistake but humorous.  A lot of times clients say, “I can’t do anymore.”  What I hear is, “I can do more”.  Sometimes a client says, “I am dying,” and I say to them, “You are living.”  Occasionally a clients says, “My muscles are hurting,” and I tell them, “Your muscles are changing.”

What I hear isn’t always what you say.  I am not only listening to your words.  I hear your tone, your body language or facial expression.  I hear it all and take it all into consideration when I ask the question, “How do you feel?”
