Here at Venustus, we work both energetically and physically. Before your treatment, we will sit down together and talk about how you’re feeling, any energy you want to attract or shift, where you’ve been feeling pain, and most importantly, how you want to feel when you leave us.
The treatment begins with energy work & strategically placed heat packs
energy work includes clearing & cleansing with sage smudging, sound bowl & singing bowl, smudging with palo santo & tibetan cymbals. The massage begins in the prone position (face-down) with the three senior staff at the feet & leg area in synchronised movements, working on the feet, calves & upper legs, releasing tension with movements which are firm enough for relief. The back area begins with the three therapists & their layered hands working together down the back area, this area is always very firm & energetically connected, one therapist remains on the back area, while the two therapists move to the lower back & gluteus area, all three are still working in a completely flowing ritual
