Hi I’m Sundae with Natural Sundae. If you’ve
ever wondered what a Holistic massage is, I can tell you. Now the word Holistic means
affecting the body as a whole unit. It doesn’t mean just working on one part, because after
all the body is interconnected. If you affect the body, you affect the mind and the emotions.
So being Holistic means you affect the physical body, the mental body, and the emotional body.
And this is what the term Holistic means. Now massage by nature is very Holistic. No
matter what kind of massage you do, whether it’s relaxation, whether it’s deep tissue,
whether it’s Craniosacral, whether it’s Shiatsu, or whether it’s Lymphatic Drainage, it is
all a Holistic type of massage. It affects the physical body in so many wonderful ways,
by increasing circulation, increasing endorphins, which are happy hormones, they make you feel
good, they make you feel very positive, decreases stress hormones, decreases muscle tension
and pain, increases muscle mobility, flexibility, and range of motion. Now when your body is
free of pain, then your mind is free to concentrate on other things, and to perform at it’s peak.
Which means improved memory, improved ability to focus, improved concentration, improved
mental clarity, and improved performance. And the third way that massage is Holistic,
the third way that massage affects the body is emotionally. It really takes away frustration,
and irritability, improves your mood. It really makes you feel supported and warm. And touch
in itself is very soothing, and calming. So you can definitely surmise, and take from
all that information how it would make you feel better on the inside. So massage is very
Holistic. It affects all the parts of us. Body, mind and soul. Hope you’ve learned a
little bit today about what Holistic means. I’m Sundae with Natural Sundae.
