Free, Roving, Indie project by Lidia Jaldo Suarez

In each Californian Massage session, I listen to the body. I see beauty. I feel life. I breathe in your spirit. 

I sense emotional scars, buried deep within. I go behind the pain. I peel away your mask. I reach your true self.

And then, almost mystically…mind, body and soul connected…we enter together into a symbiotic journey through conscious touch…

The photographer Cristina Martinez Izquierdo, with great sensitivity, elegance and human warmth has captured the essence, the beauty and the magical moments during the live massage session to Carlos López Gutierrez.

It is my heartfelt wish to share this incredible experience with you and introduce to you my art, my profession, my life’s work, whilst at all times maintaining the utmost respect for my client’s privacy.

So, I invite you now to accompany me on a profound journey to discover the wonderful technique of Californian Massage, a holistic technique that for me, is a way of life.

A look through Californian Massage

For each photograph in this exhibition, I have written an explanatory note to accompany it. Obviously, all photographs featured are available to purchase, but also, we have many more amazing moments captured on film that are available too, just contact me. Perhaps at the same time as treating yourself or a loved one to a Californian Massage, an opportunity to experience the star of this exhibition in person.  

But before we start the interactive tour, let me share with you a couple of thoughts that should help you better understand the technique.

“The Californian Oasis Massage is a set of principles and techniques that define a holistic form of body work which conceives the individual as a manifestation of consciousness, seeking physical, mental and emotional integration to achieve an internal balance of strength and harmony, necessary to maintain health and well-being”. Dr. Marcelo Bartrolí.

“The term transpersonal means “beyond” or “through” the personal, and refers to experiences, processes, and events that transcend our usual limited sense of identity and allow us to experience a larger and more meaningful reality”.  Daniels.

I am extremely passionate about Californian Massage and have witnessed first-hand what a powerful transpersonal body work tool it is. Which is why I am constantly working on myself, physically, emotionally, spiritually, to raise my own consciousness, to ensure that I am always a potent conduit for this holistic therapy.

It is my ambition to make a difference to each and every Client I treat with Californian Massage, to enrich their health, their wellbeing, their lives, so that

La Fascia

Fascia is the fibrous semi-flexible membrane of connective tissue that unites the distinct components of the human body. Within the fascia, small bags are formed that contain the organs of the human body. Mio means muscle. The Miofascia covers, serves as a support, and separates the muscles of the body. Each muscle fibre is wrapped within Mio-fascia, and furthermore, each muscle is also wrapped in Miofascia. The Miofascial tissue has a dynamic behaviour: under tension it augments its density and relative rigidity, giving the muscle greater structural support. As a result of the augmentation of the density generated by the increase of tension, the body becomes more rigid and less flexible, which in turn produces restriction of movement. Generally, these are the result of misalignments and mechanical-postural or functional imbalances, many of which have emotional roots. Deep Miofascial massage addresses the treatment of chronic pain, and also the treatment of lesser pain caused by this lack of flexibility and movement.

La Fascia

La fascia es la membrana fibrosa semiflexible de tejido conectivo que une las distintas componentes del cuerpo humano. Dentro de la fascia se forman bolsillos que contienen los órganos del cuerpo. Mio significa músculo. La miofascia cubre, sirve de soporte y separa los músculos del cuerpo. Cada fibra muscular está envuelta en miofascia y a su vez cada músculo también está envuelto en miofascia.

El tejido miofascial tiene un comportamiento dinámico: bajo tensión aumenta su densidad y rigidez relativa, dándole al músculo un mayor soporte estructural. Como resultado de este aumento de densidad que se genera al incrementar la tensión bajo la que se encuentra una estructura corporal se puede generar rigidez y falta de flexibilidad que a su vez producen incapacidad de movimiento. Generalmente estas son el resultado de desalineaciones o desequilibrios mecánico-posturales y funcionales, muchas de ellas con raíces emocionales. El Masaje del Tejido Profundo tiene como foco principal el tratamiento tanto del dolor crónico como el agudo causado por esta falta de flexibilidad e incapacidad de movimiento.
