In Chinese medicine the facia–that lattice-like network of tissue connecting all of the structures inside our bodies (bones, muscles, organs, vessels, etc.)–is considered an organ. They call it the “triple-burner” or “triple heater.” It is in this “organ” that the Chinese believe the unconscious resides. It makes sense then that with continuous massaging of the skin and facia, insights, questions, images, and solutions often surface. People ofter report transcending normal conscious awareness and dropping down into a deeper connection with the person that lives beneath their personas and egos. When they say they feel more like themselves I believe they are referring to feeling more connected to that deeper part of themselves that feels more truly like who they really are.
Please give it a try and tell me what your experience is like.
