The term SMassage is a research into how healing & massage practices can take use and inspiration from techniques and methods present in BDSM.
The action of consciously applying pain as part of a massage has the potential of releasing deep tensions and old memories stored in the body. The deep relaxed and receptive states we arrive in during a massage allow us to let go of our usual mentally created control and protection patterns. This opens up for possibilities of shocking the body -without the body closing in on it self, but allowing us to enter and heal the subconscious. It is a creative and nonjudgemental process of applying unfamiliar touch and using pain as a positive vessel for possible healing. A deep listening into what type of engagement a certain situation is asking from us in order to touch the essence of what is needed.
In this work I use my wisdom in how the force of Eros moves in the body, how to open gates and give space, to release, unblock and bring back balance. I do this guided by curiosity, open heart and intuition.
You are invited for a session of sensorial surrendering.
