An integrative and conjoint approach
Massage therapy and Psychotherapy are two different things. Massage therapy works with the body to improve a person’s quality of life while Psychotherapy works with a person’s mind to achieve the same goal.
Plenty of issues can make a person look for psychotherapy and massage therapy. Issues ranging from eating disorders to sexual and physical traumas as well as countless more can all push a person onto a quest for help.
It is well documented that talk therapy works but can only go a certain distance when a person’s issues involve the complete alienation of their body. Touch has been found to be an important and understated part of the process.
Increase serotonin and dopamine levels
Massage therapists have been observed to increase serotonin and dopamine levels. They serve as a pillar of safe touch, body acceptance and also help in reducing hyperplexia which refers to exaggerated startle responses. It is often quite outside the skill and scope of many masseuses to talk about issues while giving suggestions to their clients.
On the other hand, psychotherapists help people process and cope with painful memories and emotions while they are also usually pretty skilled at knowing their boundaries. They are also particularly good at picking out especially tricky dynamics that have a tendency to arise in interpersonal work such as transference, projection and more. Masseuses use touch whereas touch and body work is outside the scope of most psychotherapy training.
A masseuse who’s skilled in both fields is invaluable and highly sought after. Many such professionals are difficult to find but not impossible.
