exactly what you need
The energy and footprint of every feeling, experience, thought or place we have been lives in the cells and energetic structure of our bodies. This, combined with the food we ingest and our environment create an ecosystem within us. This ecosystem can be a breeding ground for vitality or stagnation. It is normal for us to hold on to stress, fear, sugar, toxins, etc - but a clearing and “letting go” process is essential. Because our bodies are like any other home, cleansing is necessary for health, well being and optimization.
Movement, stillness, touch, and nourishment are all part of our body / mind “spring cleaning” process. Touch, in particular, helps us with the residuals lingering in our body from winter and can open and clear the musculoskeletal, lymphatic, meridian, glandular, chakra, nervous systems and more from blocks which can lead to disease, pain or discomfort.
Experienced massage therapists and bodyworkers can physically and energetically feel where stagnation lives in the body, and can use many techniques to release and revitalize. One of the greatest gifts of consistent bodywork is the continual purging of what we don’t need physically and energetically.
Springtime is an outstanding season to kickstart this process and launch into the season with a lightness of being.
