Elemental Energy Balance Bodywork is based on five element system, an ancient way of looking at the human body, human personalities, the environment and much more. Wood, fire, earth, metal and water are viewed as the primary natural elements.
The five elements theory is a system of correspondences and patterns, which include processes and functions of the body, mind and spirit. Each element is symbolically represented by Wood, Fire, Earth, Air/Metal and Water. The five elements are symbolic for the different phases, or primal forces within the universe, nature, and our bodies. Each element is also attributed to a certain personality archetype. Knowing which element(s) predominates our personalities can help further insight into our lives and relationships.
Ancient Chinese philosophy proposes that human behavior, emotions, and health are also influenced by these elements. If we understand these elements, we can use them to stay in balance physically, spiritually, emotionally and mentally—or to return to balance after unhealthy living, illness, stress, or other disturbances.
Our Elemental Energy Balance Bodywork begins with the Kinesiology technique, muscle testing, to identifying elemental imbalances within the Hara, the elemental energy centre. Once we’ve identified which element requires tuning, we are able to choose from a specific group of essential oils, flower and gem essences to combine with your chosen massage medium, to provide a uniquely tailored bodywork session. We can also draw from a vast range of supporting energy tools such as affirmations, oracle cards, crystals and singing bowls to enhance the session.
Your elemental Energy Balance Bodywork session includes a 45 minute massage, using Hawaiian and Swedish massage techniques together with subtle energy work focusing on the torso, abdominal region*, head and neck and feet* (*optional), to relax the body, ease muscle tension, soothe the mind, and bring balance to the elements. The session concludes with the South American tradition of rebozos and “closing the Bones” and clearing the space of negative and residual imbalances.
We also provide you with a feedback info sheet and a refreshing herbal tisane at the conclusion of the session. You are welcome to take away with you your unique massage medium, so you can continue the experience well after you’ve left the bodywork space.
Elemental Energy Balance Bodywork is an 90 minute session. If applicable you can claim the 45 minute relaxation massage if your Health fund allows.
