Californian Massage is a truly amazing therapy based on the conscious touch. It is far more than just a massage. It is a dynamic healing dance, one that connects rhythmically to the client’s energy and surroundings, to give a somatic bodywork technique that is much needed in today’s modern world. A world where we find ourselves disconnected, lost, untethered. Our busy minds constantly whirring, never at rest. Our bodies sluggish and in pain. Our spirits weary.
Here in a Californian Massage session, I create a safe harbour for you. I help you switch off and switch on with yourself. I help your mind, body and spirit reconnect and so restore inner balance, which is vital to your health and wellbeing. I bring you into a state of deep relaxation, stillness and calm, using long, slow, circular, deep, enveloping mindful strokes of conscious touch. I help you release all the physical and emotional tensions that have been weighing you down for so long. Whether you arrive stressed, tired, or in pain, you will leave energised, freer, serene.

In my opinion and from my feeling, the Californian Massage is a reunion with oneself, with the body, the heart and the senses through true contact, through conscious contact. This technique is based on a special quality of touch (conscious touch) characterized by total presence and attention to the present moment. Another fundamental characteristic of this technique is the movements, strokes and passes that are long, slow, circular and enveloping, with depth and delicacy, which generates a sensation of integration of the body itself and which induces the person to states of deep relaxation and rest. It is only from that place of stillness and calm from where it is possible to release rigidities, release physical and emotional tension and restore energy, integrating body, mind and soul during the course of the session. For this reason, I like to say that it is a massage offered from the heart that gives life and deep rest, it is a true pampering of the soul. A superb tune-up experience. More than highly recommended, it is a must.
This is how this set of movements combined from a state of total presence, performed with precision, detail and awareness, become a healing dance, one that connects rhythmically to the client’s energy and surroundings. Since every dance contains different rhythms, this is especially relevant since each rhythm stimulates a particular type of energy. The fluid and circular rhythm is the fundamental axis of this massage as it is especially nutritious for the nervous and endocrine systems, the great regulators of muscular tension.
The therapist works through her touch establishing an authentic and responsible dialogue with the patient without trying to manipulate the person towards any goal but accompanying him or her in the healing journey. This quality of contact exerted by the palms of the full hands and characterized by sincere care, warmth and acceptance is based on finding the person as they really are, listening to the soul, the true Self. This somatic technique of bodywork works through the conscious healing presence of the masseur in a trusting relationship based on true contact which helps the patient to deepen their experience and expand their consciousness.

Silence arises as a necessity for the expression of the subtle. What technique and the quality of contact evoke in each patient is related to the receiver’s availability, the energy contained in their body and mind at the moment of receiving the massage… it is compassion, integrity, and the nobility of the heart that allows any manifestation arising from the experience of giving and receiving the massage to be expressed.
