This is a brief generalisation and does not claim to represent the different styles, influence and nuance that each practitioner will bring to a session.
Holistic Body Massage is performed by a therapist who will be multi-skilled with different bodywork treatments. Working from a base of oil massage the therapist will use a more intuitive approach to the session. A good therapist will be able to feel on which level an imbalance exists and use energy and technique to rebalance.
A good example is a therapist who would use Aromatherapy oils to massage with Shiatsu, Swedish or Thai techniques, then allow Reiki healing to flow wherever it ‘switches on’. Crystal healing, sound therapy, guided meditations are all possible. These treatments are generally very nurturing, peaceful and have a restorative quality.
