Why Massage Ministration?
"Is anyone among you sick? Let them call the elders of the church to pray over them and anoint them with oil in the name of the Lord." --James 5:14
Ministration is an odd word, an old word. Its first meaning is "the provision of caring assistance." That's what Dr. Teresa Eisenlohr does. With care, she assists you in connecting with the healing force.
No doctor or therapist heals you. Not really. Healing comes from the mysterious Life-force beyond us that brings us into existence, holds us, and works in and through us for our well-being. Teresa calls that Life-force God, realizing that there are other names by which you can call this.
Ministration also refers to the hands-on approach of a minister who cares for you as if she were administering the sacraments. As an ordained minister herself, this is what Dr. Eisenlohr does when administering your massage: she treats you as a sacrament because you are. That's why she chose the name Massage Ministration.
Does this mean that when you get a massage here that you'll be met with some crazed minister who'll worry about whether or not you've been saved? "Don't worry," Teresa laughs. "I'm not one of those annoying folks who try to get you to find Jesus like he's some lost puppy." Instead, she maintains that she's just someone who's on a journey to find wholeness in the midst of hurt and chronic pain. "Massage helped me find healing," she said. "I just want to pass that blessing along to others in pain."
