What Is Healing Gateway's Bodywork?
Many people confuse the term Bodywork with Massage.
There are many well-known styles of massage i.e.: Swedish, Esalen, Sports, Russian, Lymphatic, Craniosacral Sacral, and Sensual massage just to name a few. One of the primary goals of massage is the relaxation of the physical body by releasing stored physical tension. Most practitioners use lubricants, special strokes on bare skin, and body movements. Practitioners work on the soft tissues, muscles, and fascia with strokes, manipulation, and movement; to improve circulation, range of motion, and to increase energy flow and vitality.
There are also many well-known styles of Bodywork, i.e Tragger, Rolfing, Hellerwork, Feldenkrais, Alexander Technique, Reiki, Lomi Lomi and many more. From our experience all dis-ease begins as spiritual disharmony. At Healing Gateways we offer a variety of bodywork disciplines that begins with a spiritual intention. We work in a partnership to discover and explore the sources of body, mind, and/or spirit stress or dis-ease. The client and bodyworker together discover how to release stored emotions, pain, and memories to enhance the experience of wellness, inner-balance, wholeness, and self-healing, thereby, enabling a recognition of an awareness that self-loving choices are available in all areas of life. The client's initial spiritual connection is to his or her own Self, and this experience of Self-love allows for the sharing of an intimate connection, an experience safety and trust with the bodyworker. Most sessions are done fully clothed, with just shoes, socks, and jewelry removed.
The desire of many of our clients is to complete their past to enhance their experience of living a joyful life in the present moment.
