Kithara : Massage




Kithara is a full body massage and combines the most pleasant strokes, techniques and structures from the worlds of classic, ayurvedic, hawaiian, polarity-, thai-, qi gong und the breuss massage. Embedded in the framework of the neo-tantric massage according to Kenneth Stubbs. Much more characteristic than the specific origins is its overarching flow of movement.

The body and all its needs gets perceived as a musical instrument and the massage as a performance thereon. It's also a somewhat like a dance. Freely configurable massage strokes get indvidually integrated in a classical bodywork.

Recurrent themes, changing tempos, dynamic rythms of movement, varying arcs of tension and relaxation and repetitive arrangements unfold in a full-body dramaturgy. Two hands play different components of the same melody, interlocking and complementing each other. Every massaged part, after some intensive attention, gets integrated back into the overall flow of the body.
