A holistic massage does many wonderful things to you. On a pure physical level it relaxes the muscles, it stimulates the circulation, and it helps your body to drain its toxins. This in turn has a positive snowball effect on all your tissues, organs, hormones, nervous system, etc.
Body and mind
The emotional and mental effects are even more important. From a holistic point of view everything is interconnected. So as you turn your attention to your muscles while they’re being massaged, you’ll also make contact with the emotions and tensions that may have become stuck in that particular area.
A holistic massage treatment can be an interesting journey, a safe voyage of discovery through your own body and mind. It will feel like coming home, as you’re invited to just start feeling for a change, instead of thinking and worrying.
Energy and healing
At The Cocoon Of Light energy and healing are an inextricable part of every treatment. And the massage sessions are no exception. Just as a massage stimulates your physical circulation, it also helps and restores the flow of energy.
Spiritually and energetically a massage will invite your bodymind to turn its attention to your blind spots, to put an end to stagnation on any level, and to clear the obstacles in its energy pathways.
The result: becoming whole again
Physical, emotional, spiritual and energetic: all these different effects of holistic massage work together and offer you the opportunity to be a truly sentient being again.
Being aware of your own inner world, being in touch with your thoughts and feelings, this empowers you to live life to your fullest potential. Because deep inside you already know what it is you need to do to be happy in life.
Two formats: lying down or sitting up
You can choose between lying down on a soft massage table, or sitting in a comfortable massage chair. They’re both very relaxing and the effects will be the same, physically, emotionally and spiritually.
The difference is mostly practical. A chair massage is a bit shorter in time, which can be handy if you have a busy schedule. It costs less, so it’s a great solution if your health and happiness are important to you but money is a bit tight at the moment. And you get to keep all your clothes on.
