Butterfly Touch Massage and Brazilian Toe Massage
* Butterfly Touch Massage
It was founded by Dr. Eva Reich in 1950s, to help premature baby survive and to help mothers/fathers and baby bond. Later, this technique evolved and can be used for all aged group for healing and personal growth. As the name suggest, this technique is inspired by the gentle way one might hold a butterfly so that the scales do not come off your fingers, and by the rhythmic grace of the butterfly’s movement during flight. This gentle touch invites the life energy of the person receiving it to expand outward so that he/she might experience life richly.
Eva learnt from her father, Wilhelm Reich that at the core of all of us is our life force. This life force pulsates, expands and contracts. However, this natural flow gets blocked as the result of trauma and the building of protective armor. Reich demonstrated that stroking the skin lightly results in the expansion of the life energy, while probing forcefully caused the energy to contract inside.
Eva observed that light stroking melts tension, healed trauma, and resulted in the life energy flowing from the core to the surface and beyond.
This gentle touch is particularly useful for:
Birth, babies and children:
This simple, yet profound technique is gentle and non-invasive.
It will not tend to activate any history of abuse and will help both physical and emotional primal trauma.
*Brazilian Toe Massage
Brazilian Toe massage is a gentle, brief treatment. One partner holds the toes of the other from 5 to 15 minutes in order to balance the entire body’s energy. This is a simple tool that often produces profound results.
Ohio. Judyth Weaver of San Francisco demonstrated the technique and explained that it was an adjunct therapy treatment used in Brazilian hospital, thus the name Brazilian Toe Massage.
Many have been amazed at the changes in the themselves and their partners. Hyperactive children and adults simply relax and fall asleep. It has been used with individuals in pain or sickness and has watched them relax and get much needed rest. For pregnant women, it can be useful to get energy into the pelvic segment, the womb and the legs.
