Why NO HANDS Massage is probably the Best Massage Approach in the world … Traditional “Specific” Massage v “Systemic” Massage and Touch
Pure and simple… We adopt the view that there is simply only one expert in the room and that is the client on the table…
After all who else knows what is going on in that clients head, emotions, spiritual being? Who knows the journey that they have had to get to this massage and the journey they will have in the minutes, hours, days and even months after they leave following their treatment? In truth it can only be them…
As a massage therapist and tutor with many years of successful practice behind me I realise that this can seem like a massive and somewhat contradictory statement to make in particular as when training to become massage therapists we are traditionally taught to work towards always being portrayed as the expert in the room – afterall we want our clients to come back time and time again and appreciate us for our skills and knowledge!
About 90% of my massage work is No Hands based and one of the major things that makes No Hands Massage stand out from all of other out there is its versatility and the invitation to any client to make their massage session individually there’s…. furthermore I think that most of my clients will agree with me that in this freedom for the client essentially being invited to order their own “massage a la carte” no two massages that’s they receive from me will ever be the same – It’s a virtual impossibility!
Traditionally, most people have a specific reason for coming to see a massage therapist.
Perhaps they have a bad back or have shoulder injury and feel that they need fixing?
They’ve been working hard and the stresses of daily life have been getting to them and they feel in need of a bit of tlc and time out?
Whatever the reason – as a professional body worker massage will no doubt be able to help but what is it that gives the No Hands Massage the WOW Factor?
The answer is quite simply because we work the body as a whole with a Systemic Holistic approach rather than simply focusing on a specific thing.
We work with the knowledge and acceptance that all human beings no matter where, why or when they come for a treatment are all made up of several complex layers including:
Physical (often the presenting body problems – stiff hips, aching lower back, sore neck and shoulders etc);
Energetic (feelings of tiredness, disconnection of the mind and the body, heaviness, scatty etc);
Emotional (feelings of not feeling well or how you should be, teary or sensitive etc);
Mental (feelings of head spinning and heavy, not knowing whether your coming or going etc) and
Spiritual (needing a sense of direction, why are you here, needing clarity or reassurance etc)
and that anyone of these can be touched or released consciously or subconsciously when the time is right for that client.
In doing this and by inviting our clients to dare to ask clearly for exactly what they want and hope for, knowing that they are in a safe environment and have control of the entire massage they can simply breathe and enjoy the massage enabling a possible 630 muscles in one breath to be released rather than the traditional 1 muscle at a time….
It is for this reason that so often client feedback is that they have gotton results that far exceed their expectations… the pain is gone or limbs easier that have been uncomfortable for years… Their energy levels have increased… they have suddenly released a memory from years ago in the past… the human body is an amazing complex piece of workmanship and is capable of amazing things when placed in the right circumstances and given permission to do so…
