5-Body Therapeutic Massage Protocol at Pulling Down the Moon

Massage is an ancient and essential part of holistic medicine that has been shown to improve circulation and decrease stress. If you have only explored "relaxation" massage at your local health club or spa you may be missing the full range of benefits of hands-on work. The Pulling Down the Moon 5-Body Therapeutic Massage Protocol™ is a five-part series that focuses on specific aspects of healing: detoxification, circulation and blood flow, breathing, mental acuity mind/body integration, and relaxation.

These massages can be used individually or as a series of therapeutic treatments that support whole body and spirit health. These sessions are also recommended in conjunction with Pulling Down the Moon 5-Body Yoga™ class, to support and embody the class curriculum based on the traditional healing model called the koshas. Each massage, like each yoga class, explores one of the 5 kosha bodies:

  • Physical Body = Circlulate™
  • Energy/Breath Body = Breathe™
  • Mental/Emotional Body = Integrate™
  • Wisdom Body = Detox™
  • Bliss Body = Unwind™

These 5-Body protocols will be fine-tuned to your specific health goals. Each session is 75 minutes in length, which includes 10-15 minutes of assessment, education, and self-care. The 5-Body Therapeutic Massage Protocol™ is the sister series to Pulling Down the Moon's Fertility Enhancing Massage Protocol™, and adheres to a similar approach and philosophy to holistic healing.
