I’m rather gentle with my massage, although I’ve not yet met someone who has said, “deeper,” when I give deep tissue massage, so I figure I can be pretty strong too, when necessary.
Just quietly, though, I think strong massage can be more harmful than helpful. We can get more bees with honey than with vinegar, that sort of thing.
So I lull your body into relaxing it’s concerns away.
I also work with the acupuncture points and channels when massaging (as well as massaging the points and channels when doing acupuncture!).
Inevitably there’s some Reiki, Qigong, and CranioSacral woven in there, too. It’s pretty hard not to. And why would you want to, anyway? 🙂
