The first image is that of professional virtue, with the physician struggling against his own feelings to maintain an appropriate clinical distance from his patient. However, the alternate image is that of a foolhardy therapist who has endangered his professionalism by becoming so vulnerable to emotional involvement with patients.
In the shamanistic tradition, the wounded healer engages in battle with his patient's demons and, thereby, exposes himself to the risk of destruction. Declan, who heals by virtue of his own weakness and sensitivity, is more like a shaman than he is a Western physician. Though his lack of professionalism leads to tragic consequences, he, at least, understands the complexity of human need.
Contrast him with an alternative "healer" like Mr. Spaulding, whose devotion to numbers and theories probably safeguards him from personal harm, as well as from any genuine care for his patients.

Mad, driven passion can take on a universe of forms, but it usually leaves its victims feeling rather pleased with themselves in the end—possibly because they made it out alive, possibly because they fell apart so spectacularly in the first place.
In this case, narrator Claire Vornoff begins in the traditional way, unhappily ensconced in the quietly depressing routines of daily life. In order to find relief from her persistent migraines, she visits Declan Farrell, a practitioner of alternative medicine. Declan, married and a father, is somewhat distant and peremptory, his sessions consisting of a combination of massage, acupuncture, and some more esoteric exercises like biting on the caps of shampoo bottles.
