Discover Four Handed Massage
In a four handed massage, Harmony works with a second massage practitioner to provide a massage to the whole body, often using synchronized moves. A four handed massage can be like receiving two full body massages at the same time.
We treat the client’s body as a form of canvas onto which we choreograph intuitive slow, detailed moves and strokes of varying paces and pressures to create a varied sensual experience. This offers an opening to whole body pleasure and relaxation.
These sessions use a variety of styles and approaches, depending on the needs, desires, and intentions of the client in the moment, and the choice of who is working with Harmony.
One thing that is apparent in all the sessions is the amazing heart and energetic connection shared between the two practitioners. When working together, this field of love expands to hold our client and the space, offering a tangible sense of love.
There is a wonderful flow in the way we work together; connected with you in breath, love and an intuitively led symphony of stillness, movement, touch, sound, breath and sensory awakening.
We work with a phenomenal level of presence, heart connection, movement of energy, surrender, trust and what can only be described as a flowing dance of touch. This massage can balance the masculine and feminine energy in the body.
The client often arrives in our therapy room in a place of openness and profound vulnerability, with a range of unmet needs and desires, both expressed and unspoken.
It is a privilege to create a safe and loving ritual space to hold these. In the impeccable container that we create during a session, we aim to meld seamlessly with each other, to give the client a profound and often transcendent experience of what it feels to be loved, honoured and welcomed fully into the body.
When the practitioners and client are able to surrender the urge to control, and are able flow with one another, there is a kind of magic that happens which is beyond words.
Styles of Four Handed Massage
There are a number of different styles of four handed massage (also known as four hands massage) that we offer depending on who Harmony is working with and what you are seeking.
Each session begins with a short connecting in, intention setting, and expression of need. The massage is then intuitively tailored to meet the individual needs and intentions of each client.
We want it to be known that the massage is appropriate for all genders and sexual orientations. We understand that there are clients who do not identify as ‘Man’ or ‘Woman’, possibly identifying as non-binary or gender fluid. Please see our FAQ page for more information.
“When we touch a person, we touch their entire history, their deepest wounds, their secret
identity, their healing powers and their most profound capacity for joy” (Caffyn Jesse)
The Four Handed Massage Session
Many massage treatments work with a routine. In this massage, the two practitioners work in a synchronised way, tuning into each other, intuitively responding to your needs as the client and creating a unique experience to meet what arises in the moment.
A four handed massage can be like experiencing two full-body massages at the same time. It may feel akin to experiencing a very much longer treatment time, leading to deeper states of relaxation and surrender.
The mind can also give up its holding as it lets go of trying to follow all the hands. This can be a relief for those who find it challenging to stop a busy mind and it can facilitate different levels of consciousness.
During this full body massage the receiver is usually naked to enable continuous movement and a dance-like motion over the entire body. Blankets or sarongs are utilised to maintain modesty as required.
Creating A Unique Experience for You
Adverse reactions to sustained levels of stress in modern life include areas of tension arising in the body which create ‘blocks’ to the free flow of energy. This has the effect of de-sensitising parts of the body and reducing the amount of pleasure that can be experienced from sensual or erotic touch. The busy activity of the mind also reduces our ability to drop easily into the full experience of the body.
The sensual diversity and tactile nature of this four handed massage, which includes a variety of different kinds of touch, for example using feathers, soft fabrics and fingertip stroking, has the effect of re-sensitising the body to gentle and loving touch.
We often utilise flowing, full body strokes to encourage a feeling of integration, wholeness and embodiment. The stretching, lengthening and releasing moves available to two therapists surpass what is possible in a regular massage.
The mind is unable to follow or predict all the range of sensations and the actions of the massage gradually ‘dissolve’ blocks to the flow of energy, creating a much deeper experience of pleasure and arousal.
There is a lasting impact of this experience in that it enables the body to adapt and relax more and more deeply over time, increasing the openness to pleasure.
Amongst our team we have more than 50 years collective experience of Bodywork, Energy work, Breathwork, Yoga, Tantra, Conscious dance, Meditation, Body-mind therapy, Trauma Release and Shadow Work.
