The Quiet Way
The Quiet Way therapeutic approach to bodywork pays attention to the unspoken words within our bodies and to that place where we have become stuck or frozen in our primitive responses to painful life events, or those we have inherited.
Inertia in our system is caused when we are unable to release the impact of trauma, to fully move through the physical and emotional reactions to our life experiences, ranging from the most painful assaults on our system through the experiences of war or natural disaster, a road traffic accident, cancer diagnosis, to the deceptively trivial perhaps moving home.
All of which can be translated into experiencing a range of symptoms such as: headaches, chronic pain, digestive problems, anxiety, depression or simply not living our lives to the fullest and with joy and vitality.
There are numerous benefits to massage therapies and vibrational healing, many still being researched, however it is accepted that they can:
• promote a sense of well-being
• relieve stress and anxiety, which may in turn help boost the immune system
• encourage a good night’s sleep
• ease pain, reduce muscular tension and improve posture
• encourage activation of the relaxation response
Reflexology, which has its roots in ancient Egypt, works on the principle that every organ and system of the body has a corresponding point or zone in the feet. The therapy involves massages each of the points around the toes, feet, ankles and claves to release tension, encourage homeostasis and promote feelings of well being.
Aromatherapy is the practice of using the essential oils extracted from flowers, bark, stems, leaves, roots or other parts of a plant to enhance psychological and physical well-being.
Aromasticks are a great way to deliver essential oils. They can be easily made up and tailored to suit the individual. Each time the aromastick is used, a relaxation response builds. A key skill to achieving a calmer state is the capacity to self sooth and the aromastick enables us to do this.
Craniosacral bodywork is a gentle non-invasive therapy that supports your body’s innate ability to balance, restore and heal itself, as well as helping to reduce stress and build your underlying energy.
