The healing power of touch is so necessary for life that babies not touched regularly don’t grow and develop normally. It reduces pain, decreases autoimmune disease symptoms, lowers glucose levels in children with diabetes, improves the immune system in people with cancer, accelerates wound healing and helps premature babies grow at a faster rate. The power of touch is amazing!
And you don’t have to be a licensed massage therapist to help another person feel better. A simple pat on the back, a kiss on the cheek or holding someone’s hand helps connect one being to another which can not only help your relationship, but also your health.
But there are some skills that a non-professional massage therapist can learn that would increase the benefits for another person. Learning about pressure, directions of movement and hand position give you the information you need to give someone a massage that they will feel thankful for. You and a partner can learn the basic massage strokes for Swedish massage and proper body mechanics so that you won’t get tired or hurt yourself.
We live hectic which contributes to feeling disconnected. The constant chatter of to-do lists, errands, worries, decisions and criticisms depletes energy and disconnects you from your body. Giving someone a massage provides a connection between you and the other person. Regular touch establishes a mind-body connection and has been proven to decrease anxiety, increase feel good hormones and help the person sleep better.
Giving someone a massage is a gift that heals in many ways…..physically, emotionally, and mentally. Bring a partner and together you can learn a skill in this private, 2 hour class and begin offering this gift of healing touch to your family and friends.
