My name is Guillermo. To the art and practice of massage I bring years of intense training and experience, including in chiropractic techniques and yoga -- to my clients with the skills I have acquired, and insights gathered from them, and my teachers. Let us come together to enlighten each other.
One of my massage instructors observed that in my developing technique I was leaning toward the reparative and therapeutic aspects of the discipline, toward fixing what hurts. , which he remarked was an inherent component of it. I explained that in my native country the teaching had concentrated on that healing side and I was trying to enlarge my knowledge and skills beyond it, to become more “professional”. (Even to the point of having worked as a chiropractor’s massage assistant to learn some of those techniques to enhance the purely physical reparative mode of my work.)
But he went on to remind me that massage mode was as old as a mother’s stroking of her infant, crucial to the child’s lifelong sense of love and security. and sometimes essential in providing the full sense of “well being” that should be one of the goals of our work. One of the most interesting of his own memories was of training he received in India that included observing his master instructor performing a massage on his own son, no intimacy being overlooked. He said that lesson was bracing and quite a revelation, and helped him to eliminate any inhibitions with his own clients.
