Bodywork - Reiki & Shiatsu
The human body is a remarkable machine. An intricate system of trillions of cells, in seemingly effortless fashion the body builds what it needs and releases what may become toxic, allowing all systems to maintain balance. Or so we would hope.
Have you ever noticed how little children can throw themselves on the ground literally hundreds of times a day and never have an ache or a pain? Why is that? From an Eastern Medicine perspective, it is because in their youthfulness, their chi, or life force, is vibrant and highly effective. There is a flow to the young, a flow in body, mind and spirit, moving rapidly from activity to sleep, from the cognitive to the imaginative, from laughing to crying.
As we age, the functions of the body, mind and spirit become stressed from too much or too little use. The internal systems that regulate the elegant flow we see in the young become stuck, or stagnant.
This is where bodywork can help.
Bodywork brings our attention back to the functions of body, mind and spirit. It is a time for both passive and active conscious reception of healing and restoration. It is a vital part of the experience of healthful living.
It is anticipated that most of those alive today will have the likelihood of living 100 years. In what condition do you envision yourself to be over your 100 years? Do you visualize mobility? Clarity of mind? Happy relationships? If so, begin the process with attention to your body.
Your body is a precious temple. It deserves care and maintenance. If you own a car, you realize it needs to be maintained through regularly scheduled appointments. Your body needs and benefits in much the same way from careful attention to maintenance through bodywork.
