Ancient Massage, like most Asian methods, is a technique used to give an experience of the total body. It is similar to acupressure and Shiatsu combined with stretches and yogic Asanas. Its nickname has become, “yoga for the lazy”. It combines techniques often used separately in western physiotherapies such as Trigger Point Therapy, Myofascial Release Techniques and Neuromuscular Therapy.
Ancient Massage works on the major meridians, also called energy lines or Nadis, which run throughout the human body. It aims to harmonize the body, to loosen blocks, and to recoup deficiencies along the energy lines. In contrast to traditional Chinese medicine, which uses acupuncture to manipulate the pressure points, Ancient Massage stimulates these same points with healing touch. Therefore, the points suffer less stress, and life energy, or Prana, is allowed to freely circulate.
Concerning the treatment, Ancient Massage is a floor massage. The fully dressed client lies on a pad or light mattress. Every movement is designed to support the client as well as the therapist. The massage is given in silence to allow the therapist to better care for the client and to give the client a chance to focus and learn about himself without distraction.
All what can be written or said is not to be believed but experienced. Then one will discover the real value of a teaching. If it is not your experience it is of no value what so ever. But for the ones who have not yet experienced the benefits of Ancient Massage, it should be clearly described as to give confidence in this art.
You can help others tremendously by giving Ancient Massage, and it will bring joy to yourself also. Ease and comfort, a well aligned body and open chakras, a more peaceful mind and a relaxed heart are some of the benefits for both the receiver and the giver.
