Energetic Massage means an holistic therapy rather than just a physical treatment. The energy concept is based on the idea that we all have a "life-force" in the body. This life-force is common to all existence for example plants grown organically contain more life-force than those which have been chemically grown. They contain more of what we call "ENERGY" or CHI as the Chinese say or KI in Japanese. It is force or power in your body like electricity and like a light bulb is connected to a switch by means of wires, we are connected to this force through meridians or energy lines and when those meridians get blocked we suffer pain.
There are a variety of reasons why these meridians get blocked - through bad posture, lack of exercise, poor diet and nutrition, negative thoughts, sleeplessness, tension, anxiety, difficulty in relationships etc. We lose our sense of well being and our life-force, our energy gets depleted. What the E.M. Therapist is trained to do is to help the client to relax by using breathing tehniques and the power of touch which is the oldest healing method known to us. E.M. stimulates circulation, improves drainage of the Lymphatic System, clears Toxins in the muscles, eases stiffness and promotes the release of mental and physical stress. It is a drugless therapy and very safe.
