Gentle Release Therapy

GRT is a form of therapy offering a light touch based on a variety of energy techniques. Bringing together acupuncture points, cranio release techniques, and hands on to allow the body to find its way to health and let go of patterns, stories that can accumulate over the years as well as the wear and tears of everyday life.

A session is normally done fully clothed, lying comfortably on your back with the support of pillows and bolsters. It can be used at any stage of life and can treat a range of issues like muscular problems, pain, digestive problems, fertility issues, stress, headaches, fatigue…

Here is a project I wrote about GRT that connects this work to what I offer with fertility massage:

GRT for couples and women going through fertility challenges and IVF.

Working with fertility massage and seeing more women these days coming after trying for so long and deciding to go the IVF road I feel I want to support them along the way. I offer GRT already for women coming for fertility massage and have had very good feedbacks, one of them is that it allows them to go deeper while receiving the massage and its benefits.

Couples could benefit from GRT as men can be worked on as well… Recently I treated a couple with the massage for the woman and gave her husband a short session of GRT as he suffers from stress and it affects his sperm quality, having already done all the supplements. In case they were not pregnant this month he decided they would both come back in few weeks.

IVF puts a lot of pressure on the physical and the emotional bodies and very often when seeing a client while they wait for the embryo transfer I tell them to support their body and I believe GRT would be ideal for that (very often now the transfer is done a month after). They tend after a cycle of injections to suffer from bloating, mood swings and just an underlying anxiety.

The drugs put immense pressure on the liver and obviously like many sessions a lot of time would be spent there first.
Good digestion means good hormonal production and therefore good fertility…So the treatment could follow the protocol of the front body addressing the liver, the digestive system and clearly the kidneys as they are the battery of our bodies and maintain fertility health.
During an IVF process couples experience a lot of stress which affects also the nervous system.
Any work on the cranial system will help with resetting and preparing in a calmer way the body for the transfer. And we can also work with the hormonal reset on the feet as sometimes IVF put women in a state of “fake menopause” to then restart it with these strong drugs and produce many eggs. As during the stimulation phase I do not massage women for risk of overstimulation, if they wanted, GRT would support them emotionally and work wonders to balance everything.

I believe GRT could be positive for couples going through this challenging time and especially women who put their bodies through a lot and this is my joy to support these couples with this choice and sometimes challenging process…

A prayer

Here is a beautiful prayer shared by Caroline Myss in one of her recent workshop…
Enjoy.

​Let me imagine That I am dying Lord​.
Let me imagine that I am leaving this world,
And preparing to say farewell to this life that I have been given,
And to everyone I have walked this life with.

Let me feel the depth of that anguish
In my heart and soul farewell.

I need to feel that feeling.

I need to feel and to know how much I would break in sadness so that I might
Wake in gratitude for this life that I have, for every second, for every minute, for every Breath of this life that I have.

Let me feel the sorrow of parting with those I love so much,
That I may never see them again so that I may not feel anger but that I may look at them With gratitude and wonder that they are with me.

Let me look at every flower in nature as a miracle of creation,
Knowing that when I die I will Never touch one of them again.

Let me wake up every morning knowing that everyday could be my last
And everyday I must be fully in each day of my life, not in yesterday, and not worry about tomorrow.

I must give each day the best of all I am.

So let me visit my end so I might start yet again with the fullness of my life.

I want my soul to be in charge of my life’s choices now, do not want to waste my life dwelling in pettiness or anger, pride or disappointment, wanting what might never happen, regretting what never did happen.

Keep me from creating my own suffering and harming others in the process.
Hover over me Lord, with Grace and Guidance.

Amen

Exposure

                                       I feel drawn to write today as I am about to fly back to Mexico after 6 weeks spent mainly in the sacred valley of Peru and Copacabana in Bolivia to walk once more across the Island of The Sun. What a fruitful time and as I was walking across that magical, mystical island/land few days ago I came to receive many messages (note: when I write that I receive, the source is always the same, within) and today I want to share to inspire us to live more authentically, from the heart.

Love your bellies

Have you ever had your abdomen massaged? Most people will say no and very often many of us would be quite reluctant to have this part of our bodies touched and seen. That has always surprised me. What most of us do not know though is how beneficial this kind of therapy can help on so many levels.

Therapy of the month!

     More and more I try to introduce people to that wonderful therapy called Craniosacral therapy. What is it? Before anything more is written, let’s say it is just magical!

 
     Craniosacral therapy is a gentle, non-invasive therapy that has its roots in the early 1900s in the osteopathic field. It has evolved over the years into different forms. It could be divided as a more structural approach, which is considered the biomechanics method, or/and as a  biodynamic system, which would be more considered spiritual or energetic approach (which is how I  use it).
 
     What it does is detect the subtle imbalances in the basic rhythm of the body by listening deeply and awakening to the sacred presence of body intelligence. The practitioner places his or her hands at different places of the body, listen and help the body release the blockages. The light listening touch of CST (Craniosacral therapy) awakens your body to a deeper awareness and recognition of where tension is held and how to release  it safely.
It can treat many conditions from high levels of stress, jaw tension, headaches, insomnia, babies with colic, neck, back issues and much more. In general people who have been treated with it will report a better sense of well-being, feel more balanced, sometimes sleep for the first time in years after just few minutes, and results are often much more profound than they expected.
 
     It can be a treatment as itself or can be combined with a massage, or other therapy. 
 
Until I see you next, stay warm and well.
