Pakeh Appropriate Body Language

Decent Essays
Appropriate body language in the realm of health care is somewhat difficult to determine with different nationalities and requires a greater openness and appreciation of other cultures. In the case of Pakeha, Mark Twain (2017) isolates the key idea in his statement “if we were supposed to talk more than listen, we would have been given two mouths and one ear” (p. 2). He articulates that learning to read people is of utmost importance and truthfully the key to body language is in listening to people, especially in health care and more importantly, massage. This would mean that understanding your patient is most important and asking effective and sympathetic questions is a great way to approach them before entering into any care (Brinuof, 2016).
