Massage offers many benefits.
From relaxing muscles, soothing aches and pains, and releasing energy blockages massage can teach us about our body.
Are we willing to listen?
Our customized massage services are designed to put you first. We tailor each massage to what your body needs. Some days that's relaxation, other days it may be deep tissue work with stretching.
Whatever you come in with, our intention is to provide you with relief and educate you about how you can continue nourishing your body at home.
listening to our body
"Transformation is through the body, not away from it. This is why no true master has ever advocating fighting or leaving the body, although their mind-based followers often have." -Eckhart Tolle
Are we listening to our body? If not, why not?
Our physical body is a portal to what is really happening deep within.
By deep within I mean beyond the mind and it's thoughts/story/narrative.
For example, ever notice how physical pain causes us to "do" something when it no longer becomes tolerable?
The moment we feel "we have had enough of feeling sick/tired/achy/lonely" (i.e.: suffering) we can decide it's time to make a change.
Time for transformation!!!
Perhaps we decide to become conscious of our food habits and choose to eat better.
Or, maybe it's time to lace up those sneakers and exercise.
For some it's time to ease up on the physical body and get a massage or finally try yoga, etc.
And still for others there's a sense of the inner body that feels "off". Anxious, afraid, alone...endless cycle of emotional up and down.
Why does connecting with the physical body matter?
From a practical sense, we need it in order to live so why not take care of it the best we can?
On a deeper level, the physical body is a powerful doorway to access wisdom and therefore transformation. Can't change what you don't know/want to know :)
While some wisdom traditions may teach denying the body and/or ignoring the body, in my experience, it is the exact opposite.
We must pay attention, listen, and learn. Then we apply those lessons in the form of action.
How do we access the physical body, in a deeper sense?
One thread runs through all of it and that is the practice of presence...awareness.
Some of us pay attention quite naturally and either choose to take action or not. Doing nothing is also a choice :)
Others of us engage in movement practices - yoga/running/walking outside/dance... to help us get in touch/feel the inner body.
And still others rely on meditation, massage or other forms of energy healing to assist in bring us into deeper awareness.
There's no right or wrong way.
And the "way" may change over time as you change. Nothing is permanent in this world of form. Ha!
As I say-- the only "wrong" way to meditate is simply to not do it all.
And so it is with life and dealing with change.
We will either consciously choose to listen to our body or not.
Regardless, life / transformation happens anyway. We can embrace it (peaceful path) or fight it (suffering path).
I don't know about you. I rather the peaceful path.
