Maily’s Massages, Ahimsa & Aparigraha
I asked Maily, our gifted Massage Therapist to write this blog with me to inspire more mind-body self care and understanding of the full benefits of massage, and her approach to personalized treatments. Surrender is necessary to let her do her "magical work." In yoga, self-care and love is practicing Ahimsa, surrender of attachments is Aparigraha. When we let go of unnecessary things that don't serve us like negative past, or future expectations perhaps due to stress, we can open up to receive mind-body care.
Maily (pronounced my-lee) our compassionate, gifted Licensed Massage Therapist enjoying the beauty of nature.
Usually when people think of a massage, they think “relaxation". Although this is a wonderful benefit, it is surely not the only one. People are seeking massage therapy now more than ever, to alleviate and cope with an array of conditions and stresses.
We know that some of the physical benefits of massage include; improved circulation, decreased muscle stiffness, decreased joint inflammation, better quality of sleep, quicker recovery between workouts, improved flexibility, less pain and soreness, strengthened immune response, and lower stress and anxiety. Beyond our physical body, massage helps our energetic body as well.
Energy Healing Massage stimulates our body’s natural energy flow, accelerating its powerful healing process. By applying pressure in specific points on the body, we can unblock any stagnant energy. Combined with beautiful rhythmic massage techniques and intention we lead the body into deep relaxation and bliss. I think of it as a dance, an art in which I help people be “in flow”, as we are in flow for them with soothing intention. They usually feel this warm welcoming to surrender their thoughts and focus on their body. Where are you tense? Where are you holding on to pain, trauma, and stress? As you become more aware, so do I, then you relax.
I am passionate about helping people heal, and find the root causes of pain through massage therapy. Then gradually we can re-route to a more compassionate world, and holistic approach to medicine. ✨
