Energetic Healing frequently combines different modalities. Many practitioners combine intuitive skills gained from years of experience, with their practical and theoretical skills to deliver tailored results for their clients.
Energetic healing looks beyond the merely physical to utilise the body’s subtle energy systems, where the cause of the ‘dis-ease’ is often actually located.

An Energetic Healing Restorative Massage is a holistic, healing hands-on treatment with a focus on the organs, fascial layers and their connections –  using gentle holds and palpated touch (slight pressure) to assess and treat. It allows a releasing of tension using the foundational breath to listen to the body. The treatment begins with Usui Reiki and builds from there.
Our entire history of experiences, both lived and imaginary, good and bad, is held in the body.
By gently listening to the body and tracing possible origins of attached tension (also called referred pain), this helps to let go of disturbances in the body and resistance to that letting go.
This activates your body’s healing response to begin it’s work of rising to a more conscious level, noticing and acknowledging the stressful area; to release that tension, and restore an enhanced sense of wellbeing in you.

What are the benefits of an Energetic Healing Massage?

A healing therapy massage calms your SNS – Sympathetic Nervous System (regulates skin, bones, ligaments, tendons and parts of the somatic nervous system, plus the skeletal muscle as well as some organs).
It ALSO calms your PSNS – Parasympathetic Nervous System (more visceral and related to the internal organs, including the vagus nerve).

  • Stimulates your vascular system, also called the circulatory system. Made up of the vessels that carry blood and lymph through the body.
    The arteries and veins carry blood throughout the body, delivering oxygen and nutrients to the body tissues and taking away tissue waste matter (lymphatic system takes away the waste part).
  • Stimulates spinal pathways (carries information up and down spinal cord between body and brain)
  • Activates lymphatics
  • Articulates ribs to release thoracic tension
  • Deepens the breath and activates diaphragm
  • Connects you to your body and mind

Therapeutic massage therapy creates an opening space via the breath for you to access your spiritual self and aid your recovery and healing
Provides a gentle focus on releasing old wounds

What to expect in an Energetic Healing Restorative Massage?

  • Your areas of tension (physical and other) will be noted and what your expectations of this treatment is for you on the day; and we will proceed from there.
  • Your treatment will be as individual as you are. However, a healing point massage is likely to include your spine, neck, shoulders, ribs and abdomen.
  • Your spine is the gateway to all of your nerve endings.  Gentle digital pressure on either side of your spine taps into the body’s electromagnetic energy (from you and the therapist) and the sympathetic chain ganglia. This is both stimulating and relaxing tapping into multiple body systems, lymphatic, endocrine, circulatory, musculoskeletal and the fascia.
  • Abdominal massage invites all of the organs to participate and to give you useful information about lifestyle, diet, rest and recovery choices.
  • Stimulation of the cranio-sacral rhythm by cranial and sacral techniques – Cranial stimulation is done at the end of a treatment and affects the fluctuating slow-wave of what’s called the cranial rhythmic impulse (CRI). A quietly powerful technique all by itself.
  • Safety and trust in your therapist will determine how spiritually deep your treatment will be. Sometimes, silence is the best space to be in and to simply experience what is happening for you.
    You will not be expected to talk about your internal state unless you choose to. Mostly, your insights are best to keep private and to process later on.

You may expect a gentle unwinding of your mind and body for a spontaneous somatic healing release and gentle reset.

The somatic nervous system, or voluntary nervous system is the part of the peripheral nervous system associated with the voluntary control of body movements via skeletal muscles. Wikipedia

Chakra positions in relation to nervous plexi from the book "The Chakras' by C.W.LeadbeaterYour Chakras are energised.

The chakras are thought to vitalise the physical body and to be associated with interactions of a physical, emotional and mental nature. They are considered loci of life energy or prana (which New Age belief equates with shaktiqi in Chinese, ki in Japanese, koach-ha-guf[75] in Hebrew, bios in Greek, and aether in both Greek and English), which is thought to flow among them along pathways called nadi. The function of the chakras is to spin and draw in this energy to keep the spiritual, mental, emotional and physical health of the body in balance.[76] https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Chakra

Hands and Healing

Touch is an ancient pathway to physical and spiritual healing.
A Healing Hands Massage is more than a concept!
The earliest recorded use of the human hand for healing and therapeutic purposes goes back to ancient Egyptian times, where they wrote about feeling a therapeutic energy (sa ankh) flowing from their fingertips.
It is recorded that the pharaoh or his high priest held daily morning healing sessions, during which he made vertical passes with his fingertips up and down a patient’s back.
This was an early, yet still highly sophisticated, form of healing hand therapy. The highly sensitive fingertips were approximating the insensitive human back.

There is a close relationship between our skin and our nervous system.
As a developing foetus in the womb, our body is composed of three primary sets of germ layers.
One set, the ectoderm, (ecto=outer, derm=skin) forms our nervous system and skin. the mesoderm, (meso=middle) forms our muscles and bones, and the beginning of the heart because it’s both an organ and a muscle!  The third set, the endoderm, (endo=inside) forms our internal organs, such as our liver, lungs, kidneys, stomach, and intestines.

Our skin is so full of mechanoreceptors (tactile nerve endings) stemming from the ectoderm layer in our embryonic form; and in a sense is an extension of our skin and brain, giving us a complex and wonderful tactile sense of touch.
We feel, we see something or imagine it, and our brain makes an interpretation about it!

This is also why a ‘Lomi Lomi’ massage feels so good in our bodies with its long and flowing strokes, soothing our various layers of nerve endings and receptors.
The repetitive stroking dampens down any resistance and the therapist’s breathing, acts a conductive and protective bubble, allowing us to let go as much as we dare.


What is the fascial system?

The National Institute of Health (USA) defines it broadly as: The fascial system interpenetrates and surrounds all organs, muscles, bones and nerve fibers, endowing the body with a functional structure, and providing an environment that enables all body systems to operate in an integrated manner.

The fascia, also known as connective tissue, is the transparent skin-like structure that protects our muscles and tendons in a layered sheath like tissue. Fascia is everywhere in the body both connecting and surrounding all of our organs and complex structures. Tight fascia at more superficial layers can feel like a knot or bumpy raised bit of tissue that stops the flow of circulation, innervation and movement.  Like a road bump that then attracts more tension to the area creating more tension. Working the fascia is like smoothing it out, firmly and gently depending on the area, the type of tissue, so to soothe it down, and let the hyaluronan liquid reassert itself so the multiple layers of fascia can glide and ride the necessary functionality.

Organs in the abdominal cavity

Organs abound in the abdomen. There’s the liver, gall bladder, kidneys, spleen, stomach, pancreas, duodenum, small and large intestine.
The uterus, also an organ and muscle, sits deep in the lower abdomen between the bladder and rectum. Have I missed any?

Organs outside the abdominal cavity

The heart is also an organ and a muscle. The lungs are organs of the respiratory system.  The brain rests in the cranium (skull) at the top end of the body.

What’s the healing part of this massage treatment mean?

  • We all have an ‘inner healer’ that is a foundational part of who and what we are-  and this inner healer supports our sense of self and our ability to heal.
  • Calling upon your inner healer (or whatever name you prefer), is something you may already do as a conscious act or it arises during meditative practices or similar.
  • Calling upon your inner healer during a treatment such as this one, is for the purpose of deepening your treatment to heal yourself, at whatever level is deemed right for you.
  • We often talk about those different levels as emotional, mental, physical, or spiritual.
  • However, when we divide ourselves into these levels or aspects of self, it can create an artificial separation of who we actually are. Which is, a multi-dimensional self composed of spirit, soul, body and mind, or a living unit of being!
  • Perhaps for you, there is more to that as well, but the point is, to not divide yourself into parts and simply enjoy the cumulative experience of what and who arises. This maybe experienced during a treatment on the day, or later when you are settling yourself in a private space into your own meditations.
  • A healing space is one where you can gently unwind your sense of thwarted or disconnected self and allow your inner compass to navigate to a place of peace, contemplation and discovery, and more importantly, receive.

What’s the difference between wellness and wellbeing?

Not much. Often these words are used interchangeably, or someone has a preference for wellness or wellbeing. However, it might be helpful to know if you find it confusing.

Wellbeing or well-being describes a state of mind, in terms of feeling more happiness, contentment and fulfilment in life. ” I feel full of wellbeing!”
Wellness is the actions and behaviours that contribute to that state of wellbeing. “My wellness contributes to my overall state of wellbeing!”

The Healing Practice offers many other types of massage for you to choose from as well as ‘Add On’ Treatments like LED Light Therapy, Gua Sha Facials and more!
