When I was in Massage school, there were questions unanswered about healing that I longed for. Soon enough though, it was revealed that the Yoga teachings could quench my thirst for this knowledge and fulfill the desires of spiritual curiosity(for a while). Fortunately by 1999, I was enrolled at the oldest Yoga school in America, Integral Yoga Institute, founded by Sri Swami Satchidananda. (The Woodstock GURU:)
I incorporated Yoga philosophy with clients intuitively and continued to practice meditation and asanas regularly while being initiated into teaching at the same time.
By 2001, I stumbled into Ayurveda. Ayurveda, like Yoga is a pure and beautiful science designed by ancient spiritual healers.This began the marriage of my Yoga studies into Massage studies at the same time. I was happy to incorporate the beauty of the PURE teachings into working with clients.
You may find, as a therapist or as a practitioner, you wonder about the subtle aspects of your massage experience. Some questions that may arise include:
- What oil should be used for each individual?
- How do the seasons and time of day affect each individuals healing?
- How do emotion, thought and prayer play into affecting the healing process of each person, in relation to massage therapy?
- How do I address conversations about holistic healing with my massage client/therapist?
- In what way do stretches play into my healing in the ayurvedic model?
Simply, what we are looking for is to EXPERIENCE WHOLENESS WITHIN AND IN RELATION TO OUR ENVIRONMENT.
Ayurvedic Massage is a tool to experience the bliss we seek, for the “giver” and “receiver.”
