Holistic massage is an individual treatment that is specifically tailored to each client. A holistic practitioner treats the client as a whole, taking into account their emotional and spiritual wellbeing, as well as their physical body.
A practitioner masters a wide range of massage techniques. These can range from subtle energy work to deep tissue methods and gentle holds. Flexibility in applying this knowledge is paramount since their appropriateness must be determined by the client’s particular needs. Every treatment is unique providing a creative opportunity for the practitioner to adapt to the given situation.
Great importance is placed on how the practitioner communicates and interacts with the client. The therapist works ‘with’ the client rather than just giving a massage ‘to’ them.
What Is Holistic Massage?
Holistic therapy treats the body as a “whole”, which means that not only will a massage treatment pamper your physical body but it will also establish internal and external problems and provide an effective method of rebalancing. Holistic massage is a therapeutic application of touch that is also a supportive, relaxing treatment that encourages the mind to slow down whilst energy is increased. This treatment also lifts the spirit on an emotional level.
How Holistic Massage Can Help You:
Holistic massage benefits the mind, body and spirit. Massage relaxes taut muscles, aids lympathic drainage, releases toxins and benefits the “whole” in many other positive ways. Physical and emotional stress can be reduced through therapeutic touch and a myriad of other restrictive problems can also be alleviated.
Daily life impacts on our body in many ways. Although we can easily become tired, stressed, anxious and exhausted we seldom create the space to explore the therapeutic form of beneficial relaxation. Holistic massage can create instant improvement in the quality of sleep and concentration, improve circulation and waste removal and encourage deeper, more relaxed breathing.
Holistic massage is an ancient method of healing that clears the lymphatic drainage system and releases toxins from the body. By recognizing that illness and stress affects not only our physical but also our emotional, spiritual and mental well-being, holistic massage allows the body’s natural healing abilities to come forth and balance the entire body as a whole.
