It can be relaxing yet alteing experience. Guided journey healing massage begins with a discussion of your personal intentions and goals and favorite scenery. A prerecorded (in your massage therapists voice) journey is sometimes used, but often the journey is conducted ‘live’.
Next an appropriate aromatherapy blend is chosen. This aroma can help bring you ‘to the place’ by mimicking the smells of that place- think pine for mountain forests or jasmine for deserts etc. or those smells could help bring you a sense of calm or peace in order to help alter your consciousness. they could also be for specific purpose- muscle warming or headaches relieving. The choice is up to you.
The session starts with aromatherapy opening the way to your personal inner visual journey of healing with a relaxing massage using various massage techniques to ease you back into alignment while supporting greater self awareness and personal energy transformation.
You will be guided to your place, experience that place and how it relates to the massage and then brought back to ‘reality’.
The session may start with words like ” think, see or feel a doorway- it can be one you know or one you imagine..” Later the massage therapist may say things like “As you in on the forest floor and breathe in the earthy smells around you, feel this area of restriction releasing” as they increase the pressure in an area to bring your awareness to that area. Or things like ” As you lie on the beach and feel the heat of the sun diffusing into your torso, allow your heart chakra to open”. Finally the LMT may say things like. “as you take a deep breath in, think see or feel the doorway you came through is back in front of you…”
This can be a truly transformative experience and I hope you get to go through it someday. .
