"When you touch one thing with deep awareness, you touch everything." - Lao Tzu

Looking through the lens of Oriental healing principles, health is based on the free flow of "Chi" - our vital energy.

Following stress, injury or disease, we are in a state of "imbalance" and the vital body systems can be blocked, preventing the body from functioning optimally.

Through the Western view, it is recognized that a very high percentage of diseases are attributed to stress. Stress greatly impacts all of our bodily functions and emotional well-being. And it disrupts the free flow of "Chi".

We might experience pain and tension due to blocked energy/stress, have physical symptoms or feel emotional upset.

Through whichever lens we look, we can see how our physical well-being affects our emotional/mental health and vise versa.

What can Holistic Bodywork & Energy Healing do for you? 

By applying gentle pressure techniques to the body (and sometimes light touch, or hands-off), our vital energy can be accessed, blockages are released, the energy flows freely and health can be restored. While we relax deeply, our body is in a parasympathetic state - also known as "Rest & Digest". In this relaxed state, the body-mind can rejuvenate, restore and heal.
