Neuromuscular therapy is a system of massage techniques that were developed in the 1930's by Dr. Stanley Lief in England. It uses a holistic approach towards healing, emphasizing and stimulating the body's natural ability to heal itself. Neuromuscular therapy also enhances the function of joints and muscles, and accelerates the overall healing process by facilitating the release of endorphins.
Myofascial release is a form of soft tissue therapy intended to eliminate pain, increase range of motion, and rebalance the entire body. It does this by using massage techniques to stretch the fascia and release the bonds that exist between the fascia, muscles and bones. Fascia is the connective tissue that connects and covers all muscles, organs, and skeletal structures of the body. Direct myofascial release is sometimes known as deep tissue work. Indirect release applies light pressure and gently stretches the fascia; this allows for increased blood circulation and relief from pain.
Deep Tissue Massage is a form of bodywork that aims to relieve tension in the deeper layers of tissue in the body. Deep Tissue Massage is a highly effective method for releasing chronic stress areas due to misalignment, repetitive motions, and past lingering injuries. Due to the nature of the deep tissue work, open communication during the session is crucial to make sure you don't get too uncomfortable. Keep in mind that soreness is pretty common after the treatment, and that plenty of water should be ingested to aid with the flushing and removal of toxins that will have been released from the deep tissue during the session.
From the shamanic perspective, soul loss is at the core of dis-ease and illness. When we experience trauma or sustained stress in our lives, parts of our soul, or our true essence, leave our body to find safety in the spirit world. In the moment, this is extremely valuable, as soul loss occurrence is a defense mechanism against experiencing the full impact of the pain – our innate selves know how much is too much. But if these parts don’t return, which is often the case, we continue to function without them. Other parts of our being work harder to compensate for the lack of wholeness, causing us to become unbalanced, or, we simply exist with the voids, often times without understanding why we don't feel "right." Over time, the fragmentation of our whole selves becomes apparent as we find it more and more difficult to create a life filled with joy and a vital connection to this life. Our soul was created perfectly whole, with all parts equally vital to our experience here on earth. If parts of our soul are estranged from us, we are not able to live whole-heartedly and receive the gifts that await us here in the form of a healthy body, a healthy mind and healthy relationships.
A shamanic practitioner deals with the spiritual aspect of illness and dis-ease. They are trained to navigate the spirit world with the help of the drum and their spiritual allies, in order to search out and invite home the soul parts that are ready and willing to return at this time. Upon collecting the parts, the practitioner will blow the parts back into you through your heart and the top of your head. The result is a more whole, full, vital version of YOU. While soul retrieval does not solve problems directly, it gives you back parts of yourself that are vital to dealing with the pressures and joys of life in a way that reflects your divine being. As these parts become more integrated into your being, the more empowered you become.
Common ways soul loss occurs:
Physical trauma – car accident, animal bite, bicycle accident, or any major physical impact (difficult birth into the world)
Abuse – sexual (incest, rape, molestation), mental, physical, all forms of neglect or bullying
Loss of relationship – romantic (divorce), familiar, close friends or admired ones
Death – of a loved one (including pets)
Loss of job, home, other investments of time or money
It is important to know that trauma is subjective. It may be something much more simple, something less extreme, that has caused soul loss for some, such as a difficult yet profound interaction with someone.
Some symptoms include:
Sudden or gradual onset of feeling apathetic, numb, or “dead”
Inability to stay physically healthy due to compromised immune system
Addiction to alcohol, food, sex, TV, shopping, etc.
Difficulty moving forward after death or divorce
Feeling of being “stuck”, loss of resilience or inability to understand why you can’t “get out of this”
Depression, personality disorders, other states of mental dis-ease
**Soul retrieval is for anyone who wishes to deepen their relationship with themselves, with others, with the earth and with spirit.
