Hi Angela, I have been a MT for 15 years. My story is long. I want to tell you the sweating is good. I wear a headband to help with the "drips". If you are using proper body mechanics , this will help so much. Especially, deep breathing( no loud breathing sounds). I use to teach at the Cayce Reilly School of Massotherapy in Virginia Beach. I hope to return to work there after I have the surgery. My date is Feb. 8th.2006. I use to have several clients that Preferred me on the heavy side. Being they were a bit heavy too. Then I lost 90 lbs. (years ago) and they seemed to feel a bit shy when I was thinner. I got pregnant and just started putting on the pounds again. Now , I 'm so big , I can't work... Arthritis. The surgery will save my life. Keep up the GREAT WORK ANGELA- Don't SWEAT the small stuff! Rachel in VA Beach.
