In retrospection to chronic pain, whiplash and or sensitivities, such as kinesio-phobia, light touch therapy techniques are vital and profound in re-building a new found relationship. A human system recalls positive, memory imprinting with the success of light touch given.

When you're physically close to someone, you tend to feel happier and healthier. According to Women's Health Magazine, "touching someone releases dopamine and serotonin, both of which can boost your mood and curb depression." The human touch, has been shown to drop a person's level of cortisol, the main biological culprit of stress. As Roberta Lee of Beth Israel Medical Center in New York explains, "Cortisol suppresses the immune response. Anything that increases the relaxation response activates the restoration of your immune response".
The result: Your body is more able to fight off viruses, inflammation and produce positive memory, making you happier and healthier. That is why I am passion about these four holistic wellness modalities. Cumulative Craniosacral Therapy and Thai Yoga Bodywork/Massage, Yoga/Somatic Movement and Uniq Aromatherapy sessions support this. Whether they are blended or individual sessions.

Effleurage technique is of two types. The first is a superficial stroking movement designed to produce a sensory reaction, either of relaxation (slow stroking) or stimulation (fast stroking).
It is in my experience that light touch profoundly assists in reducing chronic pain, managed whiplash symptoms while re-establishing neutral and healthy Central Nervous System.
Effleurage is mainly used in the Uniq Aromatherapy and Thai Yoga Bodywork (Head,Hand,Foot) sessions, to either spread oil or acclimatize the recipient of the touch and assist in deeper relaxation. In addition, the touch helps the practitioner to feel altered areas of tissue tension which may release during or after, possibly with the added assistance of essential oil application.
Petrissage strokes belong to the “kneading” category. Their perceived effects are to stretch soft tissue and increase blood circulation locally in the muscle and connective tissue. It has been shown to improve performance in relation to recovery from muscle stiffness and experienced lower-limb fatigue (Ogai et al. 2008). Research also indicates that petrissage can create a reduction in alpha motor neuron activity and thus have a relaxing effect (Sullivan et al. 1991).
Incorporating these self-care techniques on a daily basis, reinstates healthy sensory feedback, so our body recognizes and accepts light touch therapy. Thus the challenging baby steps, develop a positive mind body response.
