What renders a massage to be Sacred?
What render a massage to be a sacred massage are the intention and the attention given to the massage by both the client and the practitioner. Any massage has the potential to be a sacred and a profoundly healing experience when client and practitioner mutually focus their intentions for the client’s healing. Practitioners may use various methods for creating a sacred space for the massage. Such methods include: giving attention to energetic and physical elements in the massage room; using tools of vibrational alignment such as sounds, aromatherapy and gemstones; giving reverence to the lineages of the massage modality and the healers who have come before; and practitioner and client mutually or individually inviting divine presence to assist the practitioner to perform the massage in a way that is in their client’s highest good.
At Windemere we teach our practitioners to perform Sacred Massage, whether it is Hawaiian LomiLomi, Therapeutic Thai Massage, Marma Therapy, Chinese Tuina, Abhyanga, or Circulatory Massage, etc. We also encourage our students to tend mindfully to their own healing in order to bring a stable and pure presence to the massage and to their clients.
