The Similarities & Differences of HELLERWORK vs. MASSAGE THERAPY
Hellerwork feels great! Massage feels great!
To be touched consciously with compassion is a lovely stress reliever and something that is deeply rooted in our DNA. Human touch contributes to an enhanced well being, effectively promoting relaxation and healing.
Why HELLERWORK, and not a MASSAGE?
I don't recall how many times chronic tension motivated my choice to seek out and receive a massage. The process is wonderful. I let go for a good hour and trained hands attend to the sensitive and tender spots in my neck, shoulders and back.
When the hour is over and the reality of once again facing the details my life, the benefits and comforts of the past hour rapidly dissipate and the tension returns!
I have met many therapists with great hands and hearts and good intentions but the result is generally the same.
Until I received Hellerwork.
I'd been a practicing Massage Therapist for 8 years and severely injured my back seriously incapacitating my ability to continue working.
Several months following the initial injury to my back, I received Chiropractic, Acupuncture and massages but continued walking around with the familiar chronic tension and discomfort that limited my ability to work. Making matters a bit more challenging, I had broken my big right toe and was rendered fully immobile. Desperate, I sought out a good friend for comfort and solace. She was and still is a body worker of the Heller variety.
After one session I felt different. After several sessions, nearly pain free and felt an improvement in my ability to get around, even with the walking cast! I asked her what this magic was and she explained it was Hellerwork Structural Integration.
Deeply impressed, I immediately enrolled in the next Hellerwork training as this process made good physical sense to me and I wanted to offer Hellerwork Structural Integration to others for lasting change.
