This class is a two hours immersion in the healing power of human touch. Trough a loving-kindness meditation at the beginning, you learn to connect your heart and your hands. You will be then led through a guided massage - once as a giver and once as a receiver. We finish the session with a nourishing Savasana and a sharing circle.
During the Healing Touch session, you learn to meditate, connect to your heart and lovingly touch and give a nourishing massage to someone. You also get to know the meridian system used in traditional Chinese medicine (TCM) and Shiatsu therapy. Practiced regularly, Healing Touch can help to reduce stress-related symptoms, strengthen your immune system and increase your well-being.
Winter is associated with the element of water which lets us focus within and connect to the quiet and peaceful part within us. During this session, we'll focus on the Bladder meridian on the back of the body, which is one of the two meridians belonging to the element of water. Getting the energy moving within this meridian will help you to relax and focus inward.
