♥♥♥I was a massage therapist for many years and that experience has served me well in my Breathwork practice. When I hold space for my clients in a Breathe, I often use touch to help them get the most from their session.♥A hand placed on the heart area can open up so much energy when the breath becomes unsteady. Holding my client’s feet can be such a gentle way to return the focus to the body. Sometimes I use my hands quite a bit in a session, and other times I don’t physically touch my client at all. There are so many ways to help someone feel safe. Below is from an email a client sent after her Breathe:♥I remember a moment where I had some really bad epigastric* pain (just after one of my waves of nausea, of course), and you put your hand right over that spot for a bit. Just before that, I’d had some pain in my right trap*, and you moved your hand from where it was to hold that spot exactly. It amazed me, as it does every time you do that, that you knew exactly where it hurt.♥* Epigastric pain is in the upper abdomen just below the ribs.* Trapezius: upper shoulder muscle♥♥♥
