Mindful touch creates a space for healing, the body needs to feel listened to in order for it to express and release, just like in a verbal conversation. Bodywork is two-way communication between the giver and receiver. The body responds and lets go with the presence of a listening hand. Sometimes the deepest shifts can occur through still and present touch.
Within my Thai massage practice my hands listen and respond to what is felt in my clients in each moment. This is fundamentally how Thai massage is a form of meditation, because the giver is present each moment with what is for the receiver. Listening, observing and continuously adjusting pressure and pace as part of this conversation.
