I do mobile massage in Airlie Bech and surrounds. We believe in the well accepted Eastern medical theories that the physical body is a gross manifestation of a subtle body composed of life force and emotions and other subtle energies. We refer to this life force as chi or Ki.
A blockage or disruption in the flow of chi or Ki will cause an area of the physical body to become tight, blocked or forced out of position in the case of the bones.
We also believe that the body is one holistic organism and we don’t believe that dealing with one part in isolation is as effective as dealing with the whole person. So, in this way we recognise that one part of the body may be tight but that area is being held tight by another area which could then also be held tight by another area again.
We also recognise that the subtle body of emotions and the gross physical body are related and so we see that some tension may not be released in the body unless the corresponding emotion is also released. In this way we work holistically not just with our massage techniques but also with our rhythms. We encourage our clients to breathe deeply into their bellies during the treatment and to allow any emotions out that need to come out and to not hold them back.
