We think that in the quest of a happy and healthy life, one key factor is to keep the body and mind connected. And even if we don’t feel it, it is often not the case.
I was like that too, I was over thinking, my mind was leading without listening, keeping asking too much to my body. Even when my body was tired, under stress, asking for relief, my mind was not listening to that voice and kept working…
It is very common, more and more, everywhere in our modern cities, burn-out became a trendy word, living under stress became the norm, so called “stress deseases” appears, when you don’t listen to your body he finds other ways to talk to you, louder…
Massages, body works, yoga asanas, have that magic thing: even if it is addressed to the body, it talks to the mind, it is bringing together the body and the mind.
It restores communication between them, it restores the balance, the mind feels again the body, and through the body, it is connected again to the environment, the nature, to the infinite energy of the universe.
The aim of the body work we propose at Le Lotus Bleu is to restore that communication, that balance.
ESALEN® MASSAGE with Maiko
120 min -12000 yen internals*, 14 000 yen for externals.
Maiko: I was born with weak knees, which led to lots of injuries and accidents. And as I was not listening to my body, I experienced pain quite often, and got more accidents and injuries. What took me out of that loop is the Esalen massage. It did not fix my knees, but it allowed me to make peace with my body and find back my balance.
Esalen massage is a very special massage, there is no fixed pattern, techniques applied depends on feelings between the practitioner and the receiver, each massage is unique, because every moment and every people are different.
If we try to describe an Esalen massage, we can say it is an oil massage of all the body, with very long strokes, from feet to head, with some still moments. With some very simple touch, it allows to convey humanity and feelings. It is not a massage to relieve specific muscle pain or heal some body pain, it is like a mind massage, to integrate mind and body.
As it works on the parasympathetic nervous system, it is very calming, almost like a meditation session. To benefit the full effect of the massage, it is better not to plan physical activities just after.
I am Chie, the owner/therapist of massage salon ‘Wakka healing’ specialized on Swedish massage and head massage.
In my 20’s, I had disorder on both mind and body. During that time, I met several healing methods which gave me so much calm and warmth through the hand touch. The experience led me to become a therapist.
In our modern life, people are using computer and smart phone all the time without giving any rest to our brain. We don’t listen to our internal voice any more although our body is giving us many alarm signals, such as stiffness, chronic fatigue and insomnia…
Le me help you to listen to your body.
My Swedish massage will bring you calm and relaxation feel by using deep and light pressure changing like a wave.
