Paweł Massage

Pawel

INTUITIVE HOLISTIC MASSAGE

 
 
 
 
 
Paweł Wieczorek, is a holistic therapist, who approaches each session with a client individually. During sessions, he use various techniques chosen intuitively. Intuitive Massage is a unique massage, individually tailored to each person.
During this massage, we want to meet the needs not only of the body but also of the mind and the emotional and physical state (sadness, depression, joy, lack of strength, fatigue, resignation, trauma, etc.). We determine the Intention for which the massage will be performed.
Through music, candles, appropriate aromatherapy and a unique atmosphere, you feel that all tension and emotions are released and your body regains vitality and health. The aim of intuitive massage is not only to relax tense muscles, but also to work on the whole person by removing tensions or blockages inside. Help in regaining conscious breathing and integrating the feelings and emotions that accompany the person on that day or for the last majority of their life.
In this Ceremony we are Support, Presence.
 
During the treatment, regression may occur, i.e. a return to the moment when the energy was blocked in the topic related to the intention. Repressed emotions are released. Thanks to this, the free flow of energy is restored.
 
What are the effects?
The first noticeable effect is a feeling of inner peace, lightness, joy and gratitude. Often a desire for positive changes. Moreover: the client gains body awareness, which perfectly stores all memories in cellular memory…
 
“I came to work with the body through a tribe of healers, the world of therapist and shamans. My path as a holistic therapist changed when I discovered that the connection between mind and body is deeper. I moved away from standard theory and practice and adopted completely different models over time. I have engaged in a more holistic and intuitive approach to people. The body is a highly subtle intuitive receiver; we must be entirely within it to heal ourselves”
 
Pawel is a student of Julia Szczepaniszyn,, the teacher of the original MER method – Myofascial Energetic Release.     
 
His training at ‘Body Freedom’ broadened his knowledge about massage healing techniques, including joint release, healing trauma.
 
A trained Master Reiki practitioner, Pawel also adds these techniques to his sessions tailoring his methods to what the client needs at that time.
 
Pawel path led him to Old-slavic traditional method for healing and keep body and spirit in balance.
