A classic massage lasts from 20 to 60 minutes, depending on the part of the body that has been worked on, a holistic massage even up to 90 minutes, and what about this Lomi Lomi, someone asks?
- Okay, I’ll have that Lomi Lomi.
- Great. Please book yourself 2 to 3 hours for a massage with an introductory talk.
- How much?!?!!!…. I can’t last that long. Besides, I don’t have that much time!
Words that are repeated and tapped out go from head to head. This increases the importance of the collective “lack of time” and the daily rush. The lady at the checkout counts up the goods on time. I finish packing my shopping. The goods of the customer behind me mix with mine, and another has started to be served. Beep, beep, beep… The pressure of “wasting time” grows into a collective madness.
One rushes and the other feels rushed. Beep, beep, beep… The relentless pressure becomes so ingrained in us that even brewing our morning coffee on our day off, or taking a walk in the woods, becomes another task to be “done on time”. Beep, beep…. Insomnia appears, hyperactivity, mistakes, anxiety, Beep, beep… Questions why? Calming pills.
Mistakes. Spades, spades… Illnesses. Seeing a psychiatrist, spades, spades… psychologist, therapies.
Don’t you have the feeling that you are chasing after nothing?… That this rush is coming out of you, but it is not yours, and that everything you do, you do for someone or something?… that you are in the last place of the puzzle?… that you are giving away your energy and power? Who is able to stop this chase of fear and seeming waste of time?
The body cannot be fooled. It needs you. It needs time to settle down during a conversation, to be able to accept the first touch. The body needs time, which is why a gentle, slow touch without the pressure of time is so important – even though it may seem otherwise to you.
This is how trust is built up in you. First the mind lets go, only then do the muscles and the whole movement system relax. When you give the body enough time, it will give you permission to work harder, at the level of deep tissues and the nervous system, so that it can finally give you information that you won’t be able to reach by working only from the level of the mind.
I have time for you. Please accept this and also give yourself this time to come back to yourself.
Who if not you will break this seeming game of lost time?
Who if not you is able to give it a new meaning and give yourself inner peace?
I invite you to my Sessions and Trainings
