Every organ in our body has a natural or ‘healthy’ state of functioning as do our emotional, mental and spiritual states. When we are out of balance, we feel
like something is out of place – whether it comes in the form of emotional or physical pain or discomfort – and we naturally want to return to our natural state of harmony, when everything ‘works’ as intended.
What happens in the body reverberates almost instantaneously in the brain. For instance, as the bodywork reduces tension in the body, it calms the mind. Holistic healing acknowledges that the root cause of a physical illness may in fact be non-physical. The ultimate goal of aligning the body, mind and soul promises a happier, healthier, more balanced state of being. We approach massage
therapy training in this way.
When a massage therapist can understand therapeutic rebalancing for a client, it results in repeat clientele, increased revenues and industry recognition as an accomplished therapist.
Working holistically on the physical body entails addressing the body as a whole unit, instead of a collection of parts. The arm does not end at the wrist–it continues energetically and psychologically through the fingertips. The leg does not end at the upper thigh–it continues over the hip and into the lower back. This thinking provides the most relaxed and fluid therapy session for your client.
