Phenomenal Touch- more than a massage, Part 2

BAA_020

Take in this image. How does this resonate in your body? Ahhh, I can feel the stretch, the elongation; slowly, gently and fully supported from underneath.

Every body likes to get stretched and moved differently. Finding the unique unfolding of the tissue for every client makes it interesting and fun. It isn’t just the arm that is being stretched; you can see the whole shoulder joint including the clavicle, the neck, almost the whole torso is engaged.

A client described feeling pulled like taffy. It takes warming up the tissue to be able to sink into deeper layers and the image of taffy works beautifully to envision how muscles will soften and stretch. If one tries to bend taffy when cold, it will not budge or be brittle and break. When warmed up it can almost be sculpted like clay.

In the image you can see a quality of surrender in letting the whole body respond to a stretch or move. Surrender only can happen if there is trust and the feeling of safety. One can only feel safe when there is enough support and the move or stretch is at the perfect speed for the muscles to let go. If the speed is too fast, the muscles will want to guard and tighten.  Trust also has to develop over time between client and therapist.  Finding and building that trust and providing the safety for the body to unfold is one of the most important goals in my Phenomenal Touch Sessions.

As the image from Part 1, this image is part of the exhibit “Body as Art”; a collaboration of Antje Roitzsch and Deborah Cautela, both Phenomenal Touch Master Practitioners, Photographer Lisa Elizabeth and 4 models.

This exhibit was inspired by having massaged many different bodies over the years and developed the sense of awe, reverence and honor to meet the person where they are. To work with different bodies and body types, treasuring and celebrating each and every one of them as a creation of art.

I will pick different images for the next few posts to describe the many different facets and qualities that make Phenomenal Touch so unique.

 

Gazing upon this image, what feelings and emotions rise up in you? Take a moment to pause and feel into yourself. What part of you resonates with this image?

I take a deep breath and feel a wave of peace come over me. My shoulders drop. The image presents to me a moment of stillness, rest, a quiet presence. There is nothing active happening. It feels like the end of an exhalation, the moment of empting and complete quiet and peace. Yet it feels supported and witnessed. It evokes the feeling of trust and surrender. The space is being held for the receiver to completely connect with themselves. This is the moment I love to facilitate in my Phenomenal Touch Sessions.

For this reason I chose this image to introduce you to Phenomenal Touch even though there are so many undulation, 3 dimensional stretches and moves to choose from.

Exterior life is busy, pushing and pulling us in all directions. I feel it is important to experience the pause; the moment between exhalation and the new inhalation where you can connect with yourself in the stillness.

Let this image remind you that you can tap into your inner peace in the pause between each breath.

 

 

 

Relax your tight back

All of us get a tight back once in a while. First make an appointment for a massage 🙂 and in the meantime, use this very effective, helpful way to relax your back, using 2 tennis balls in a sock.

I hope this helps you manage any discomfort and feel much better.

The Joy of Letting Go

The Joy of letting go

Have you been swept up by the magic cleaning and tiding craze lately?

My sister inspired me and I started with my cloths. Now I am in the process of finding homes for some books (let me know if you want some German books)

I think the reason we started examining our belongings and see what still has relevance in our present life is that our mother passed away recently. Having first moved her to a small apartment and then dissolving the household after her death gave us practice in sorting out.

For me it was a process of realizing that even the most prized and cherished possessions, containing fond memories, boils down to being “Stuff”. It doesn’t matter if it has external value or not. I felt suffocated by the sheer amount of belongings that are left behind when a person crosses the threshold to another reality. If I where living in Germany in a large house, I would have been tempted to keep a lot of art work and books. Luckily I had to be very selective in what to take or mail. This process set in motion, continues with examining my own “Stuff”.  What is truly important to me? What served me in the past, but is now outgrown? What do I drag around as a burden? It is not just my material possessions that undergo scrutiny. It is deeper questions- who am I without my mother? The main anchor emotionally rooting me in Germany is cut loose. I am drifting and having to find my own new identity and roots. What do I want to invite in, what do I want to create space for? It seems to me that my external surroundings are a mirror of my internal cluttered state of mind, emotions and also relationship to my own body. I am longing for a clean slate, a new start, a lighter unburdened existence.  Below the dread and fear of change, there is a kernel of joy for the new that I can glimpse. My heart is already joyfully jumping, being surrounded only with relevant possessions. I am looking forward to shedding habits and behaviors that I developed as coping mechanisms to past events. What else is holding me back? What about the armor I build up around myself for protection? How much of it do I still need? How much of this is also reflected in my posture? Can I retrain my muscles? And how much more self esteem do I need to develop to truly embody a new posture? What does my soul need to be nurtured and my body to be nourished? What can I tackle by myself and what do I need help with? Luckily there are quite a number of practitioners in this area here that can support this transformation.

It is a blessing and gift to be willing to tackle all these questions. I have a sense that after this process my life will be much more clear and have more purpose. I will feel freer and my body will move and function with more ease.

I know I am not the only one going through this life change. Reach out, ask for support. I certainly can help you discover your new body.
