Chair Massages during Community Clinic

Seeing the benefit of the 10 min chair massages inspired me to offer them on a regular basis.

Here is how it works:

Location: 91 Elm St. Camden at Camden Whole Health.

Amy Jenner, our acupuncturist has started a community clinic.  A Community Clinic is a group experience where the healing effects are made more potent by the energy of the group.  We will be gathering in the large front waiting room. Amy will offer acupuncture treatments by appointment only. Please call (207) 542-1575 to reserve your spot.  I will offer chair massages, one after the other, for everyone who shows up. Other practitioners might join us in the future.

Date: It will be every 2nd and 4th Wednesday of the month.

Time: It starts at 5:15 pm and goes to about 6:15 or 6:30 depending on how many people show up.

Since I can only work on one person at a time, I suggest you call ahead and reserve your time slot, especially if you are planning to come later. Or come and prepare to wait a little, surrounded by the relaxing and healing energy of the community setting.

Payment: Camden Whole Health is donating the space and I as well as Amy are donating our time, so the session itself is free. But we are collecting donations to go to the food pantry and hope you generously participate. Again- this is in the spirit of community- if you can’t contribute much, that is fine as well.

Contact: call me at 542-4285 or email info@healingartsmaine.com

I hope this offer is well received.  Please join us and stay well during this holiday season.

What to do when you see swarming Honeybees

The Honeybees are swarming.  If you see a swarm, stay calm and give me a call.  207-542-4285. The flyer  gives you some guidance of what to look out for and what info to give me. I will give them a loving home.

This is not too related to my massage practice- but bee guardianship is a healing art in itself 🙂

Open Studio Invitation

Come and join us on May 24, Tuesday from 2-5 pm

Antje Roitzsch has joined the Wellness team at “Camden Whole Health” with her Phenomenal Touch™ massage practice “Healing Arts Maine”.

To introduce herself in the new space, she will offer free 15 min. sessions on Tuesday May 24 from 2-5.

P1060180Antje will add to the center her enthusiasm for helping clients build a relationship with their bodies that is rooted in love, respect, honor and trust.

Antje brings her ability and talent as a sculptor to the massage table, giving her the sensibility to touch and work the tissue of the body like clay. She listens with her hands in a three-dimensional, sculptural way.

“I love being the bridge for people to live in their body with greater joy.”

She is especially excited to join a team of wellness practitioners, where it will be possible to offer treatments that complement each other, giving clients support from different angles. For example, if a client is working on shedding old behavior patterns with a counselor, those patterns are also reflected in the muscle tissue of the body. Antje will support the client in releasing those old patterns and create spaciousness for new movements to emerge, giving the client a full mind body opportunity to change.

Besides the well-known benefits of massage, such as maintaining comfort & mobility and dissolving tension & stress, Antje offers support during life transitions. This also may include releasing old trauma, building trust, raising self-esteem, adjusting postural patterns or restoring the body after illness.

To reserve a special timeslot for the free 15 min. introduction call Antje at 542-4285 or check out her website for more information: HealingArtsMaine@wordpress.com
