Using Momentum – Allowing momentum to aid you in the massage moves, rather than using force.
Oppositional Resistance – Using opposition and resistance, both together and on their own, to deepen the openings in the muscle and joint.
– Embracing and moving the body in space, honoring its three dimensions

requires; going beyond the form into what that particular body in that
particular moment needs.
Connecting With Spirit
– Allowing the sacredness of spirit to enter the room, being open to the
