Self Massage

A dimension in self awareness and care

Just like our mind can affect our body, our body can affect our mind. Often times, anxiety and tension will build up in our bodies, making it even harder to get rid of.

What massage does, among other things, is to bring attention to your muscles so you can relax them most effectively. Ideally it’s great to be massaged by someone else, but its also something you can do regularly to help relax and feel better about yourself.

Tips

You don’t need to be an expert, just do what you like in the way of stroking and rubbing over your skin. You can do your head, neck and face without oil, but some

Beauty Therapy

Are we being real or just kidding ourselves?

There is an old saying that beauty is in the eye of the beholder and this is true. Any number of people can look at something but not all will agree that it’s beautiful because everything we see is in fact an interpretation of our own mind. The idea of beauty is also associated with ideas of glamour, however glamour is a completely different subject although it can complement or even replace beauty.

The ideas of beauty are mostly associated with sight, sound and touch. When we see someone or something, the light reflected from the object passes through the lens of our eyes to land on the retina from where an

Sex Therapy

Humour

Two women had been having a friendly lunch when the subject turned to sex. “You know, John and I have been having some sexual problems”, Linda told her friend. “That’s amazing!” Mary replied, “So have Tom and I.”

“We’re thinking of going to a sex therapist”, said Linda.

“Oh, we could never do that! We’d be too embarrassed!” responded Mary. “But after you go, will you please tell me how it went?”

Several weeks passed, and the two friends met for lunch again.

“So how did the sex therapy work out, Linda?” Mary asked.

“Things couldn’t be better,” Linda exclaimed. “We began with a physical exam, and afterwards the doctor said he was certain he could help us. He

A History of Lomi Lomi

An ancient art for modern times

The Lomi Lomi style of holistic bodywork is often referred to as ‘the Rolls Royce of massage’ that’s best known for the deeply relaxing long strokes that sweep the body from tip to toe, over and under, massaging two areas simultaneously and fully engaging the senses so that stress evaporates. As well as being deeply healing, this massage style can also be a divine or transcendental experience.

While Lomi Lomi or Kahuna style massage is thought of as having its roots in Hawaii and other Pacific Islands, it’s actual beginnings were likely bought from India as Hindu’s have been sailing the Pacific for thousands of years. This massage has many modern counterparts; in the

Getting Massaged

And how to get the best treatment – a personal story

I love being massaged and the first few times I was rather shy and thankfully I was treated respectfully. On the few occasions I went to a male therapist I became aware that I had this unique power, and on reflection I became aware that it was not nice.

I must tell you that most guys think I am pretty hot although I think I’m rather average although if I scrubbed up I guess I’d fit quite nicely into any sexy magazine although I don’t do that. If you’re a woman you’ll probably understand that almost every guy is attracted to you in some way and it’s very easy

Part onepart twopart three

Jody spent a year treading the rivers of indifference and cold streets of pride in California. She spoke a deep and ancient truth that was applauded by those who were sufficiently enlightened, but her key message was like that of the Buddha, that people always had a choice.

Despite the corruption of civilisation and that most people endured a lifetime of suffering, it was eminently possible to step out of that suffering. She continued to advise people that they could either wallow in their suffering and be grateful for moments of pleasure or they could be

Definition and History of Massage

The most ancient of healing arts

No one knows when massage was first practised, but over the past 50 years it has become a popular treatment for aches and pains and those who have regular massages proclaim to be one of the best forms of preventative medicine.

This page presents a simple summary of massage including its history, common use and some of the different types of massage that are also described in more detail on this site.

History:

Massage is an instinctive human response that when we bump ourselves that we rub it and the ‘ouch’ soon goes away. This basic instinct has been slowly developed over the countless generations into a sophisticated healing art and science.

Massage for her libido

The sensitivity and power of full body holistic massage (R)

Now semi retired after massaging for many years, I continue to be amazed by the transformative effects of a full body massage. Typically clients are grounded, they become more relaxed and unconcerned with the world around them, but they also become more aware and able to engage with life.

As a male working in the industry, I’ve always had guys wanting extras like hand relief that I’ve never been into. But some women have asked for this service. But what is more significant is women who have lost interest in sex. They are often labelled as frigid and cold, but they lose interest in sex for a variety of reasons

Sex Therapy

Restoring relationships with self and others

There was a time that most people when they felt an urge to express themselves sexually, they went ahead, found a person with whom to share that expression with and they got on with it. They did not necessarily have to be in any particular situation and until recently sex between consenting adults often took place in public although not in anyone’s face.

So what is sex therapy?

It can mean different things to different people and while sex therapy has become a recognised practice with therapists receiving state certified training, it still remains a very vague term covering many aspects in terms of ones personal sexual perception and gender orientation and fetishes, addiction,
