If you’re a massage envy seeker, you’ve likely noticed that your self-assessment is going down the drain.
“It’s not the massage that makes you happy,” says Lisa MacIntyre, a massage therapist in Sydney, Australia.
Instead, it’s how you perform.
The best massage therapy sessions involve a focus on the body and mind.
This approach is known as an empathic massage, which is an approach that focuses on the other person’s feelings.
Empathic massage is the best way to heal your own body.
MacIntrey uses the word to describe how she focuses on her own body, as opposed to trying to fix someone else’s body.
She has a long-standing practice of focusing on the feelings of the client.
“I don’t do it because I want to fix the body, I do it just because I need to heal the body,” she says.
Empathy is about the other party’s feelings and wants, MacIntryre says.
It’s an approach she’s used in her practice for over 20 years.
“We need to be aware of how we relate to others and we can’t avoid that,” she said.
Macintyre has a strong belief that it’s important to help others feel loved and accepted by their body.
In the early 1990s, she decided to start a massage therapy practice, and over the next 10 years she opened her own massage school in Melbourne.
MacIntis massage therapy focuses on using positive, non-judgmental techniques that focus on a client’s emotional needs and the body’s natural healing properties.
Emotional care is a very powerful approach to massage therapy, MacInters is an expert in this area.
“Empathic massage can be used to help people who are in a state of distress or who are feeling insecure or unhappy,” she explains.
“The key is to be compassionate and listen to the body.
Empathise with the body.”
Empathy MacInteris massage therapy is based on empathy.
“People can feel empathy for the body but it’s also important to empathise with their feelings,” she explained.
“There are many things we can do to improve our body and it’s up to us to help ourselves and others with that.”
MacIntis also emphasises the importance of being compassionate with the other’s body and that you should treat them as if they were your own.
“You should treat people as if their body is your own and they should not be treated like you would treat your own partner or loved one,” she advises.
She also emphasised that the body is not the centre of attention and that the other people’s body is the focal point of your attention.
“So, if you feel that someone is looking at you and your body is in the wrong position or you are feeling uncomfortable with something, try to find the cause of that and make yourself feel better.”
MacIntreys massage therapy technique is based around empathy and being aware of others feelings and needs.
She explains that empathy is not an act, it is a process, and when a therapist listens to the other with empathy, they can see how the other has feelings.
“For example, if they are having an emotional breakdown, they may not understand why their body feels this way,” MacInths said.
“They may feel like they are being looked at inappropriately.
So, being open to understanding the other body can help them be a better partner and feel safe.”
MacIns also emphasise the importance in treating a client in the right way.
“If you are concerned about your client, be understanding, listen and listen carefully,” she added.
MacIngtis said that clients have a lot of different needs, and that it was important to listen to their needs.
“Our clients want to feel comfortable and comfortable is a huge part of their massage therapy experience,” she stressed.
MacINtis massage therapists are known for offering a relaxed, warm, and supportive environment, but she also encourages clients to be themselves.
“Be yourself and treat everyone with respect and love,” she emphasised.
“In a therapeutic setting, being a caring person can make all the difference.”
MacIngtis massage therapists offer a relaxed and warm massage environment, which makes it an ideal massage therapy session for anyone.
She said clients can feel comfortable in a therapeutic environment, while also being aware that their body may feel uncomfortable.
“Being in a safe and comfortable environment allows you to feel and feel and be yourself and the other is not seen as an object,” MacIngts said.
The key is being a compassionate person, MacIngs said.
Emotionally aware massage therapy can help people with anxiety and stress.
“When we do our massage therapy we are not only helping people, but also helping to make them feel better,” MacIns said.
