Massage Hands and Arms

Have you enjoyed a wonderful weekend outside, working in the garden, doing a project, trying out a new sport? Your Arms and Hands might be very sore now.

Here is a guide to loosen up the tight muscles and stretch the forearms and wrists. Your body will appreciate stretching before and after the work. Take a little time to recover faster from the strain.

Oral health- Reduce viruses and bacteria with these cool tongue scrapers

I recently saw the video below explaining the benefits of tongue scraping in Ayurvedic medicine. I had heard about it before, but I didn’t really understand the reasoning. This video explained it to me. And especially why copper is the ideal material for it. Right now oral health is so important. This helps reduce the viral and bacterial load.

Well, copper- I have plenty of copper wire! So I made myself a copper tongue scraper. It works great! So I made a few more. Send me an email if you want one of them. info@antjeroitzsch.com

I make them all with different texture or curves so people in the same household can keep them apart. I charge $10-15,  what ever you can afford plus shipping if we can’t meet. I hope it helps you as well.

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.
