Thai Bodywork with Olga

Thai BodyworkThai Bodywork is an ancient energy-based healing system that combines acupressure, reflexology, and assisted yoga postures. Treatment effects are enhanced when the patient is fully relaxed and breathing deeply.

Traditional Thai bodywork uses no oils or lotions, and the recipient remains clothed during a treatment. There is constant body contact between the practitioner and client, but rather than rubbing on muscles, the body is compressed, pulled,stretched and rocked in order to clear energy blockages and relieve tension. The practitioner uses thumbs, palms, forearms, elbows, knees and feet to create a dance of movement on the body of the recipient. In this process, joints are opened, muscles and tendons are stretched, internal organs are toned, and energy is balanced. The overall effect is one of deep relaxation, rejuvenation, and physical and mental well being.

Thai Bodywork began to evolve in Thailand over 2,000 years ago. Based on healing principles similar to those utilized in other non-western healing therapies, the Thai system focuses on circulation of vital energy in major pathways called sen. The major energy lines are manipulated, and important pressure points along these pathways are stimulated to help break down blockages, stimulate energy flow and restore balance and harmony.

Identifying features of traditional Thai Bodywork are integrated yoga postures which are performed on the recipient. Through assisted yoga, the body is stretched in ways that are difficult to attain through individual exercise and yoga practice. The result of a full-body Thai treatment is often an exciting and powerful mind/body healing experience, bringing both the recipient and the practitioner to heightened states of physical and spiritual well-being.

For many, traditional Thai Bodywork is also a spiritual discipline in that it incorporates the practices of mindfulness (breath awareness) and loving kindness (focused compassion). These techniques, when shared by practitioner and client, help bring the treatment session to a focused and deep level.

Chakras are not magical buttons

chakras 2I am going to let you in on a little secret… Shh, don’t tell anyone… Chakras are not magical buttons you can turn on and off to fix your life. There! Now you know.

Sorry to spoil anything for you, but that’s just how it is. Your chakras are not preventing you from living your life to the fullest, having good relationships, or being healthy. No one can wave a magic wand over you, fix your chakras, and suddenly you are living someone else’s life. That’s just not happening. I know it would be great if it did, life would be so much easier, you would not have to do anything yourself at all! No crying, no processing, no dealing with your own stuff. Heaven!

Here is another little secret – your chakras are not broken! Isn’t that what is implied when you look to someone to fix them? We fix things that are broken, and chakras are not broken, ever. They are a dynamic reflection of the state you are in. You work on yourself, and your chakras respond and change. And you can work on yourself in so many different ways, there is no limit to what you can do. Positive psychology? Check! Exercise? Check! Gratitude journal? Check! Yoga? Check! Meditation? Check! Local, seasonal diet? Check! Leisurely afternoon? Check! Dream journal? Check! All the things you do for yourself, starting with a decision to take better care of yourself, will affect your chakras in a positive way.

Now, all absolute statements are not entirely true. If you are reading this and thinking, “but I did chakra balancing and it really helped me…”, think of what else you were doing at that time. I bet there were some ways you were already working on yourself, and chakra balancing session was just a cherry on top of it. And that’s how chakra balancing works. You are already working on yourself, maybe if just by deciding to start to take better care of yourself, and having some energy work done on you lifts the energetic imprint of trauma. It is part of the work, but not the whole work. You are still the one responsible.

And that is the last little secret I’ll tell you. You are responsible for your own well-being. Not only you are responsible, but you are in charge! You are the boss of you, no one else is. No one else can “fix” you. All healing happens from within. You come across people that can help you on your journey, but if someone tells you they have all the answers for you, do look at their motivation. The power should always remain with you, not in practitioner’s hands.

Sacredness of Touch

Physical touch is so important to us as human beings, yet we rarely have an opportunity to experience a safe, sacred, non-sexual touch as adults.

While this workshop is primarily aimed to energy healers, anyone interested would benefit.

We will practice guided meditation and a guided approach to touch that will allow you to connect to your own and your recipient’s divine nature.

My hope is that you will leave inspired to offer physical touch to your clients as a healing, supportive tool and that you will feel comfortable doing so.
