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:
    • Help mother relax during birth and restore her energy after birth
    • Help baby’s energy to expand after birth to integrate birth experience

    *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.
