I often encounter clients who have a look of "darkness". Sometimes spiritual, sometimes physical (in my eyes). Upon their departure from our sacred space, its as if a light has been turned up or on within their soul. This "light" I also witness can take place within the skin. I've worked with many many clients of various ethnicities and walks of life who have literally become 2-3 shades lighter after a session. I have had to adjust my eyes because they don't look like the same being who laid on my table 60 or 90 minutes prior. I see both men and women come in holding specific body parts or limping because of pain, tension or stagnant energy that has been trapped within their bodies. These same individuals leave with improved posture and breath, dancing and in one case a 72 year old man immediately began shadowboxing because the pain and stiffness that had resided in his shoulder for so long had been set free. I've experienced dull, low eyes become bright, big and clear. I witness these shifts occur in pregnant and postpartum Mommies as well. These are just a few examples of what I also refer to as Divine healing(restoration) and transformation.
I attribute these "Shifts" to the many benefits of massage such as:
Increased blood flow
Increased oxygen flow
Decreased levels of stress hormones
Increased flow of the lymphatic, circulatory, respiratory and digestive systems
Deep breathing which detoxifies the body and is encouraged during therapy and beyond (breathwork).
The use of medicinal plants through the application and or inhalation of essential oils and herbal teas
The physical manipulation and stretching to muscles, organs, ligaments and tissues that assist in the release of toxins
Reflexology to the feet, hands and scalp/skull which promote healing and relaxation throughout the entire body
I am forever grateful to be a vessel of divine love, healing and light for so many. I am forever thankful for the lives that I have impacted as well as been impacted by on this journey as a Healer. Through Sweet Serenity Pampering Co., my bath & body refinements, hands that heal and the gift to hold sacred space many heal, transform and also reach levels of higher consciousness during this work, myself included.
