Low self-esteem can have a profound impact on our quality of life, affecting our mental, emotional, and even physical well-being. Fortunately, various therapeutic approaches can help us rebuild our self-confidence and self-worth.

In the cacophony of our modern world, amidst the relentless chatter of social media and the clamour for attention, there seems to be an imbalance and a growing gap between self-expression and the willingness and ability to listen. Have you noticed that too? Our digital age celebrates and promotes the freedom to speak, post, and proclaim our thoughts to the world through platforms like Facebook, Instagram, and YouTube. It is liberating and encourages creativity, yet, in the process, it seems we are gradually losing the ability to truly listen. We find ourselves in a world where the art of listening is quietly slipping into the background, drowned out by the constant noise of self-promotion and the desire to be heard.

In this article, we will explore the common misconceptions surrounding these aspects in bodywork and touch therapy, with a specific focus on the traditional Hawaiian massage technique, Lomi Lomi, which holds a special place in my heart – both as a practitioner and teacher, as well as a receiver.
In our increasingly fast-paced and digitally connected world, the art of mindful connection is getting a new significance. Both touch and mindfulness are powerful ways of experiencing the present moment, and their synergy offers a unique pathway to cultivating deeper connections with ourselves and others.
