Body Work

Body Work is more than just a massage, it's a whole concept. Body work theororizes that within our anatomy, is a story of unresolved problems and past traumas -- both physical and psychological. Body Work is a massage technique where deep, hard pressure is applied to the acupressure and related points of the blockages (in the body). This form of body work massage frees the client to release tension and feelings; is usually done through yelling, crying, muscular vibrations, release -- then followed by an overall sense of well being.

A body work session begins with breathing exercises. (Preferrably with a selected partner) While breathing, the client's eyes are closed. (Inhalations and exhalations are monitored.) Downward pressure is then applied to the intercostal spaces between the client's ribs. Concurrently, feelings of sadness or joy may be revealed and released during this part of the body work therapy.

Body work focuses on the upper body first; gradually massaging downward. Chi breathing is utilized through the duration of the massage session to evoke feelings from within. Employing Chakra massage and gentle touch to balance energy in the body; body work "frees" the body of stress, tension and aids in overall well-being.
