*We discuss why many people feel their physical therapists have let them down and how Aaron empowers patients to heal themselves.
*Thinking outside of the box and strategizing non-touch therapies are producing beneficial results for clients.
*Self-care education and empowerment on social media is key for practitioners navigating our current situation.
*In order to share our gifts as healers, it’s important to cultivate strong business skills so we can get in front of people and educate potential clients.
*Aaron doesn’t heal people; he gives them the information and tools so they can fix themselves.
*We explore how therapists can be helpful and resourceful to their clients in multiple ways. Education is key.
*Words are more powerful than we realize. Patients will take on a personality around a diagnosis. As a patient, you are not your diagnosis. As a therapist, you carry a tremendous responsibility with the words you use. Therapists can hold clients back if we don’t use words that empower. Change outcomes by choosing different words.
