The medium is the body, the muscles, the tissues, the energy of my clients. I love love love watching how a hardened body/mind will release and relax when I apply my brush stroke of intentional presence with deep touch or light touch.
My art is about helping you reconnect to your body masterpiece and your own master peace within.
There is more to the body than tight physical muscles. There are energy pockets in many people of tight bound up emotions and stress. Mental and spiritual stress.
Feeling into the body on the physical, mental/emotional and spiritual levels takes intention, skill, focus, presence and experience. Can you feel deeply into yourself or someone else? Do you understand what that means? Feeling into yourself or someone beyond the regular 5 senses is another sense in and of itself.
Of course someone can learn to rub muscles in a massage class. The true skill is being able to sense and feel the many layers that exist in the human body. Often times this cannot be taught in a class but is honed through years of intentional massage.
True massage skill is knowing how to massage through these layers. Steamrolling someone with deep tissue massage therapy, can release muscle tension, but it doesn't get to the pockets of energetic stress stored in a person's mental/emotional body. It won't be subtle enough to sense the lighter bindings or tenseness in someones spiritual body to be able to release that with softness and ease. Sensing that and helping release the emotional, mental and spiritual stress takes presence and intuition.
Many people are confused about the emotional body or the spiritual body because they do not see them and therefore assume they do not exist. They exist, it just takes a finer eye and finer attunement of the hands to be able to see and sense them.
As I glide through someone's body I am not just searching for tight muscles or tissues, I am sensing and feeling where their mental/ emotional stress is, I am looking for pockets of energy that are holding on from lack of inner love or trauma. I am looking to help release those so their spiritual energy is more open and free and they can see deeper within themselves from a spiritual perspective. This is where peace and relaxation is on the deepest level.
It is totally intuitive, meaning I just do what my hands are guided to do. Most times now I don't have to think about it because I trust what I sense and what I am supposed to be doing with my hands. Like a metal detector searching for metal, my hands are energetic detectors focusing in to find these bindings and then doing what my hands are guided to do to help the energetic bindings release. When they release there is greater ability for relaxation and peace to happen in someone's body, mind and spirit.
This is the art of holistic massage therapy. It is therapeutic massage on all levels. A massage of the body, mind and spirit. Holistic body art that is created and re-created all the time through skilled, focused massage.
