Not all people are made the same.
Not all massages are the same.
Not all experiences are the same.
Massages are not all made the same and
the experiences are also very different.
We often judge according to the past, unfortunately. If we are not careful we set ourselves up to experience a habit and not something new.
This client in the video is a good example since he thought he knew what massage was. Relying on the past more technical get-it-done with no intention and presence then and a restorative massage showed him how little and how much you can feel from the bodywork.
Well, guess what there is a big difference in how you receive when you give more profoundly. Thus until he experienced Joanna's LOMI LOMI, he just thought massage was only what he experienced in the past which was no feelings or restoration.
Now he knows you can feel much more and deepen the connection to the body....he felt the massage and the aliveness that wakes up body and mind.
That aliveness means many things but in essence, you will feel your body's reactions and aliveness in your personal way.
For many, a somatic experience has a different vocabulary that you will learn as you go..... he like you has difficulty tuning in and finding the words. We can all learn if we want to.
Connecting is a life-changing and awakening which ripples over.
