The Heart Path of Massage and Meditation

by Judith Ashton BA ITEC MFPhys IMTA

Judith trained with Gerda Boyesen as a body psychotherapist and massage therapist in London in the late 1970’s, she is held in high regard by her profession and was many times President of The Irish Massage Therapist’s Association. Her “Touch for Healing” courses received special commendation from the English Nursing Board.

She has massaged hundreds of bodies and trained many therapists and has lectured and taught both at home and abroad. The lives of many people and health professionals have been enhanced by her heartfelt way of working.

Take this week to connect with your body and to celebrate its sacredness and deep inner wisdom. Learn to listen to it, to unlock its secrets, to nourish and to love it. The body is a powerful subtle complex organism with its own intelligence and rhythms which need to be responded to wisely, not exhausted or forced into shape.

 

Listening to and listening with your body empowers you on your journey through life. Your body tells your truth and will always guide you in the right direction if you listen to it.

Here you are offered a rare opportunity to slow down, to take time to tune into your own unique rhythms and to explore what your body needs to express to be truly alive. This is a very special week; much time is spent simply resting. By the week’s end you will know more about your precious body, the value of meditation, touch and massage.
