Massage Challenges the Modern World

Dealing with Competition and Political Correctness

There is no doubt that massage has a wide range of uses and applications, but in today’s increasingly narrowminded world, it is being reduced to a placebo. This is largely due to the distorted perception arising from political correctness, and social movements based on habits and fears that distort reality.

The people of the modern world seem to have lost any connection to their roots as human beings and they have become human doings. […]

Self-Massage

A dimension in self awareness and care

Just like our mind can affect our body, our body can affect our mind. Often times, anxiety and tension will build up in our bodies, making it even harder to get rid of.

What massage does, among other things, is bring attention to your muscles so you can relax them most effectively. Ideally it’s great to be massaged by someone else, but its also something you can do regularly to help relax and […]

What is Holistic?

No ‘thing’ can exist or be understood except in relationship to the whole.

But what is the whole?

To begin to understand holism, we must first suspend our disbeliefs and open our minds to infinite possibilities. Holisim is a paradigm which explains who we are, why we are here and how we can live our lives in harmony with ourselves and our natural world.

Holism takes into account the whole of our knowledge from what is accepted as the big […]

Massage Attire

Practicality and aesthetics

Clothing is determined by local customs and those people who perform a superficial part body treatment as performed in many beauty therapy establishments will probably have a uniform. The therapists performing other styles of massage like shiatsu without any oils are free to choose although the best clothing option is comfortable and made from pure cotton.

Just as some professions wear uniforms, many spas and salons provide uniforms that staff must adapt to, but this page is […]

A substitute for love

And the need for human touch

Massage is needed in the world, because love is leaving and people are losing touch with reality – the ground that is their bodies.

There was a time when the touch of those you loved was enough. The husband playing with the body of the woman or the woman stroking his body with affection; that was massage and that was enough. It was a deep relaxation and part of love, but that is disappearing […]

Evolution

Growing Up In The Sixties, Los Angeles “The Times They Were A Changin”

By Linda Lee Laurel

It was 1967 The Summer of Love. The times they were changing, I was noticing that guys were growing their hair and my hip friends were dressing different. There was something in the air and I could feel the excitement. It would be an extreme understatement to say there was a whole lot going on that summer.

I know for me it […]

Navarātri

A celebration of the divine feminine

Navarātri is an Indian festival dedicated to the worship of the divine feminine. It is usually held in October and the exact dates of the festival are determined according to the lunar calendar.

These nine nights celebrate the Divine Feminine, and are a time of great festivity in India (Bharat), but this is also an appropriate time to remember our mothers and the gift of your life that she facilitated into the world.

During […]

Our greatest love

Is created in our minds

Love is an idea and like all great ideas, it takes place inside our mind. Remember that perception is something that happens through our senses and our mind that interprets what we see, feel, taste, smell and hear. All experience of our world is internal.

When you fall in love with someone you can interact with physically, in other words love a person you regularly spend time with, who they are even though they exist […]

Massage Taboos

Life based on ignorance

Negotiating the politics of massage and the complexity of morality against what it means to be a complete and fully responsible human being in today’s world.

Most people identify themselves as their body and mind with an ego as a public identity. This is a very limited level of awareness, or in other words a form of ignorance.

Many people like to use the expression that ignorance is bliss, however to those with a degree of […]

Response – Ability

A confused word

The meaning of responsible is to have an ability to respond to whatever life presents us with, but in recent times its meaning has become confined to mean a person who has performed a particular action and is therefore responsible for it, or in other words the person responsible is the person to be blamed.

Dictionary’s say:

Responsible is an adjective meaning 1590s, “answerable” (to another, for something), from obsolete French responsible (13c., Modern French responsable, as […]
