Our first contact with the world is through the sense of touch. A child feels protected with the touch of their mother. Touch has a soothing, healing and protective effect, and massage is the greatest form of touch that is able to provide both nourishment and detoxification to the physical, mental and emotional bodies.
Massage is the perfect representation of duality, it encourages the feeling of ‘letting go’ and also enkindles the feeling of closeness. Many people use massage once their bodies are exhibiting symptoms of pain and distress but massage is a key tool in prevention of ailments and sustenance of youthful radiance as we age gracefully.
The practice of using touch as a healing method derives from customs and techniques rooted in ancient history dating as far back as 3000 BCE. Civilisations in the East and West found that natural healing and massage could heal injuries, relieve pain, and prevent and cure illnesses. What’s more, it helps to reduce stress and produce deep relaxation, supporting the vagus nerve and allowing your body to shift into a state of rest and repair.
It is necessary for every being, just as food is necessary. Food provides us with the nourishment from the external sources, whereas massage excites the internal resources and provides nourishment in the form of proteins, glucose and other vitalising chemicals within the body.
