WHAT IS “LEV’S HOLISTIC MASSAGE”? (and how does it differ from other massages ?)
When clients initially come for my massage, I always explain what I mean by the word HOLISTIC , as it applies in the context of my healing work. HOLISTIC is a “fashionable” label these days, so I always explain what my HOLISTC MASSAGE includes, as other therapists may mean something very different!
Firstly, I see the client as a human being, not only with a physical body which can gain relief from muscular aches and pains by skilled manipulation – but each of us has also an “emotional body” , and a “spiritual body” –unseen, but also deserving of tender loving care. This “ three bodies” concept is the first part of my “Holistic” definition.
Secondly, I aim to combine both “east and west” in my massage. The “west” is represented by 25 years of various western trainings. The “east” means engaging the more “subtle energies” taught in eastern traditions – of acupuncture, reflexology, or kinesiology, working with energy channels, meridians and chakras.
Any “energy blocks” may often be detected and shifted, – perhaps working with the breath – helping clients to achieve release of longstanding stuck patterns.
Using this subtle approach , “mechanically powerful” pressure, such as in sports massage or deep tissue work,, is unnecessary – I believe in the phrase “less is more ! ” So, the touch is gentler than many massage styles, but effects often transformative, as I guide the subtle energies to the deeper place of healing and the outcome is usually profound.
Chakra Balancing helps the client to realise their potential in all areas of life. The east/west combination, together with the 3 layered model, provides a complete healing journey, given professionally but with loving intention. That’s why I spend at least 2 hours with each client, so all the parts of an holistic experience are integrated, for maximum benefit to my clients.
I also offer inexpensive B&B, so you can relax and stay as my guest without having to travel after a session.
