Holistic Five Pillar Massage is a sacred physical, energetic and spiritual bodywork practice where the thinking mind is allowed or persuaded to rest and not interfere with the enjoyment of the massage or the inner unfolding and release process.
It is an inclusive form of massage that has been devised to address the conscious and unconscious therapeutic needs of the whole person, which are missing in other massage forms.
It contains the best from traditional eastern massage forms including Shiatsu, Tantric Massage and Thai Massage; as well as the best from modern western massage and bodywork practices including Swedish Massage, Aromatherapy, Contact Improvisation, Reichian Therapy and Body Armour Release work.
Each "Pillar" is an independent, self-contained body of knowledge and training that together with the other four makes a comprehensive whole.
The pillars are
- Breathing, Centering and Connecting
- The Art of Loving Touch
- The Art of Rocking and Releasing
- Postures, Positions and Polarity
- Techniques and Routines
Facilitated by: Laura Gubbins and James Khan
Time: 6-9 pm
What to Expect

- Introduction to Holistic Five Pillar Massage
- Massage Tuition: Demonstrations and Practice
We will start with an opening circle, where we introduce ourselves, how we are feeling, get to know the other participants, and mention any prior experience, personal needs and preferences for the massage work - whether you prefer to be a giver, receiver or to do both.
The massage tuition will include demonstration and practice with others.
Whether you are new to bodywork or experienced, you are welcome.
