Massage is the oldest form of physical medicine known to man. This ancient healing art is an instinctive therapy and modern clinical research has provided increasing scientific evidence for its therapeutic use. All cultures around the world have always understood that ‘the laying on of hands’ has significant beneficial effects, not only on the body but also on the mind.
You use this innate ability in your daily life — if you have a headache you instinctively rub around the neck and the temples and if you hurt your knee or bang your elbow your first reaction is to massage it to relieve the pain. If a small child who has just fallen and hurt their knees; the reaction of the parent is to hold the child with a loving touch and gently caress, (rub), them.
This is deep rooted deep in the human psyche. The comfort and relief gained by this touch is due to one of the fundamentals of healing - the transference of caring or loving energy from one person to another.
The healing power of massage not only helps to ease physical discomfort but also enhances our mental, emotional and spiritual well-being.
The word ‘massage’ comes from ‘mass’ the Arabic term denoting ‘to press’.
In all of the course I run the aim is to encourage and enhance your innate abilities. And to give you the expertise to carry out a full body massage safely and effectively. Be this on your family or friends or within a professional massage setting
