For some, massage therapy is a way to get in touch with the body of emotions that life has heaped upon you. The physical body when injured locks away the experience in scar tissue. As these scars are released during a massage session, the emotional energy of the situation that has been trapped inside a scar releases along with the gentle stretch or pressure.

When you do have emotions coming up on the massage table, please feel free to let them go. The release of emotional energy as the body unwinds brings a deeper, more lasting effect.
Many Blessings and Happy Holidays!
