By using the term SMassage we engage in a research into how healing & massage practices can take use and inspiration from techniques and methods present in BDSM. The action of consciously applying pain as part of a massage has the potential of releasing deep tensions and old memories stored in the body. The deep relaxed and receptive state we arrive in during a massage allow us to let go of our usual mentally created control and protection patterns. This opens up for possibilities of shocking the body -without the body closing in on it self, but allowing us to enter the subconscious. A deep listening into what type of engagement a certain situation is asking from us in order to touch the essence of what is needed.
During the weekend we will be introducing SMassage techniques dealing with rhythm, speed, stretching, contraction, tension, acupuncture points and breath. Basically everything we can do with our hands, feet, knees, elbows, mouth as well as the whole body.
We will be exploring how to allow yourself to receive with out giving anything in return, as well as simultaneously how to be able to give without asking anything specific in return and how to use our minds in supporting us to loose our minds.
No previous knowledge is required in either healing massage or SM but curiosity, playfulness and intimacy are appreciated.
