Recently I had the pleasure of experiencing an Esoteric Massage at Gentle Rhythms. Within the suburb of Warrawee, is a heavenly sanctuary that Katie has created. As you walk up the garden path towards the sandstone oasis, the day bed at the end of the enclosed verandah beckons you to sit, be still and take a moment.
Moments later I meet Katie for the first time. Katie has a calming presence and on completion of the information sheet, she walks me through my medical history. This is comprehensive, and Katie has a way of tapping into your psyche, enabling her to heal not only your body but also your mind. Then the softness of the bath sheets envelop me on the bed and I am there, five days before Christmas, completely relaxed.
Esoteric Massage is described as a deeply ‘stilling’ and healing technique to receive and reaches far beyond relaxation. It provides you with the opportunity to reconnect with your own natural gentleness, which it did, before my snoring rudely interrupted me.
The Gentle Rhythms website explains: ‘Esoteric massage enhances the body’s natural ability to rebalance and therefore heal. providing you with the opportunity to reconnect with your own natural gentleness. Once this connection has been made, the massage can help clear the stress and tension and hence allows the body to return to its natural way of movement.’
It is very gentle and soothing, like no other massage I have ever had. There is no need to worry about the pressure being too hard, only about falling asleep. Afterwards, I felt like my hand, arm and shoulder had been stretched out to release tension.
If it was in my power, I would consult with Katie every day to experience the relaxation and nurturing, for want of a better word, I encountered in my session. I found the experience both relaxing and empowering and walked away with my head feeling lighter, my neck tension dissolved.
Katie at Gentle Rhythms is doing great things in Women’s health and offers Esoteric Healing and Self Development Sessions, amongst other services. I would strongly recommend her Esoteric Massage and look forward to the next time I can indulge.
