As we move through our overview of the different modalities of massage I am amazed that newer styles of massage are often combined with or take their roots from well established or traditional modalities. A good example of this would be Hellerwork, and that will take us back into our overview.
Hellerwork follows the principals of Rolfing but has more emphasis on dialogue between the client and practitioner. The overall goal of Hellerwork is to empower clients to grow and experience more freedom and energy in their lives. This is accomplished with releasing patterns of stress and movement exercises designed to eliminate bad habits and move with greater ease and flexibility. Hellerwork was developed by Joseph Heller, the first president of the Rolf Institute.
The Hemme Aproach stands for history, evaluation, modalities, manipulation and exercise. Developed Dave Leflet the principals are taken from physical medicine, osteopathy, chiropractic and physical therapy.
The Holographic Technique was developed by Chloe Wordsworth and is a six step process of body/ mind healing. Holographic Repatterning identifies life-depleting patterns through kinesiology and transforms them into life-enhancing patterns by means of numerous modalities based on movement, energy balancing, sound, light breathing, and many more.
Hoshino Therapy is an official medical therapy in Argentina and is a particular form of acupressure. It recognizes 250 acupuncture points that correspond to the bio-mechanical functioning of the body.
Hot Stone Massage was developed in the Middle East for use in health spas. The stones are heated and positioned on the body and are gently moved about with light pressure on the warmed stones.
Infant massage is becoming more and more popular. It is taught to new mothers as a way of bonding with their newborn and promoting infant health. Infant massage incorporates nurturing touch, reflexology, and massage in a fun one on one interaction.
