touching possibility

The possiblities of touch are endless.

Many techniques are available to be learned and used. They vary considerably from energy-only modalities where the surrounds of the skin are worked on (ie the aura or energy body), light touch to deep tissue massage.

Awareness of the intent or quality of touch is essential: is it giving vs recieving or taking vs allowing? The same technique might be applied but a different intent infuses the touch with various qualities and creats a different experience for the reciever and giver.

How the experience of being touched is supported by the therapist is also an important consideration. Is the work done in silence? Is there guided meditation or coaching?  Can the therapist integrate verbal processing with her touch therapy? Is sound or breath work included?

The beautiful capacity of our body to be moved by touch is an area worth exploring with great reverence, scientific integrity and wisdom.
