What is Akashic Bodywork?
Akashic comes from the Sanskrit word "akasha" which refers to the fifth element often understood as spirit, ether, or love. I chose this as the name of my practice because all of my work is done with the utmost empathy and compassion for my clients, and I feel that akasha best expresses this.
I also look at massage and bodywork as being the fifth element in our wellness routine. We all try to 1) eat right, 2) get enough sleep, 3) exercise, and 4) visit the doctor when we are sick or injured; Massage naturally fits in to this picture as the fifth component by providing balanced maintenance for not only our body, but our mind and spirit as well!
