Massage: Gentle Touch
with Yolente Verbeek
Massage is a helpful tool in caring
for our bodies. When you receive a massage, you can experience deep relaxation
and become more aware of your physical, mental, and emotional state. Massage
stimulates your circulatory system and soothes an array of energy disturbances
in your body.
Massage has a direct influence upon both the conscious and unconscious parts of our minds, as well as upon the body, which has its own natural intelligence.
As a masseuse, I offer two main
forms of massage: full body and meridian massage, an ancient Chinese form
of massage based upon the energy paths in the body.
A massage session with me begins with a brief conversation, in which we decide what type of massage is most appropriate for you. For a full body massage, I use a variety of techniques to relieve tension and to activate under-used muscles. For a meridian massage, I first assess your mobility and inspect the connective tissue along your back. Based on the information gained from this, I create a treatment tailored to your individual needs.
As part of either type of massage, I also can offer help in relieving problems such as: stress, insomnia, gastrointestinal complaints, poor circulation, headaches, stiff and painful muscles, fatigue, distress, anxiety and depression.
