What is my first Phenomenal Touch Massage session like?

P1050755

The first session of Phenomenal Touch™ Massage can take up to 2 hours. The intake form you fill out prior to the session will be the starting point to, hear your story as well as establish your comfort level and our boundaries. There is space for you to voice any expectations, goals and concerns.

I step out of the room while you undress to your comfort level and get under the sheets on the table. I will keep you covered during the massage, just uncovering arms or legs being massaged.

We work on the massage table listening to your body’s story, finding spaciousness in tight areas; discovering how your muscles like to be stretched and moved and what feels nurturing and restful. There is no set routine, each session is based on where you are at the moment and what your goals and needs are.

After the massage I will step out and you can observe the changes in your body. When you are dressed you open the door for me to come back in, so we can have a short check in and see what felt great and if there was anything that felt challenging. This is a good time to reschedule your next session. For future sessions it is actually nice to prepay and pre schedule a number of sessions, so you don’t have to deal with logistics after your massage.

What is different about Phenomenal Touch™ Massage?

P1050740Phenomenal Touch™ is 3-dimensional massage, incorporating stretching and moving the recipient in ways that might include draping limbs over the table, or over the practitioner’s (my) leg or arm, letting gravity pull the weight of the recipient’s body into my hands. Variation in speed is part of the method, and sometimes momentum is used to move the recipient about. I use movement to enter tight areas, finding the spaciousness within restrictions.

Active participation:

The receiver is invited to participate and guide the session with 3 words more, less, stop. I let your breath direct me, as well as any non verbal responses like groans, moans and flinches. If you feel like moving and get into a different position, you can do so, I will follow you.

The more active your participation, the more empowered you might feel and the more your needs will truly be met.

Surrender:

Once you are more familiar with the work, you can use your session to build trust and surrender. It might bring you back to a childlike state of being held and nurtured. Trust needs to be earned, takes time and requires feeling safe. Over the period of a few sessions you will notice a difference in how your body is responding and is able to let go. Giving honest feedback will help me improve your experience.

Once a month I offer 15 min. Mini Sessions, so you can get a feel for my work and personality. This will help you determine if we are a good fit and if this work is for you. Give me a call at 207-542-4285 to reserve your spot.

Is your body ready for spring?

Ahhh, Spring is here!

We can get outside to do all the projects we thought about all winter long- work or fun. Just remember your body needs to get eased into physical work.  Building stone walls or putting a deck onto your house is heavy work.  So is cleaning up brush or digging up your garden to prepare vegetable beds. Getting on your bike or on a paddle board is requiring your muscles to work very differently than you are used to. Stretching and loosening your muscles is easy to forget, but your body will be very grateful when you remember.  This is a good way to stay healthy and prevent injury. Loose muscles will be able to work more efficiently and not get strained. Receiving a massage after strenuous work will help recover from aches and pains and get your body back in balance.

This is a video I did while still at The Maine Beehive, but the information still applies. Now you can call me directly at 207-542-4285 to schedule your massage to be proactive and stay healthy.

Stay loose, enjoy spring and your projects.

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

Welcome to Healing Arts Maine

How do you live in your body?HA_logo_square

Is your body your friend?  Do you feel at ease, peaceful and at home? Or are you struggling
with self-image, with pain, or unfamiliar changes? Has illness made you feel betrayed or are you taxing your body to the max and don’t have time to pay attention? Is your body speaking to you, trying to raise your awareness to change behavior patterns?

I would like to help you develop an awareness of living in your body with joy; help you understand the story it is telling and generate love and acceptance you can achieve living in this beautiful temple of your soul; building a relationship that is rooted in love, respect, honor and trust.

We will work on the massage table listening to your body’s story, finding the space in tight areas; discovering how your muscles like to be stretched and moved and what feels nurturing and restful.

Wherever your individual goals lead you, I will hold the space and intuitively move with you, while staying grounded so you can surrender to your process.

I am looking forward to supporting you

Antje Roitzsch
