Butterfly Touch Massage Therapy

Good Beginnings GBE - Butterfly Touch Massage

Butterfly Touch Massage is developed and patterned by Dr. Eva Reich, MD while working with premature babies in Harlem Hospital during 1951-1952. Her experience came from working with her father Wilheim Reich, and her teaching workshops around the world. After which, Eva realised Butterfly Touch Massage works equally well for children and adults as well as with the elderly even though it was developed to help mother and baby bond.

Dr. Eva Reich is the daughter of psychoanalyst Dr. Wilhelm Reich who later discovered orgone energy, the energy responsible for the biological pulsation of life on Earth. Dr. Eva Reich coined her father’s gentle work, and developed it as Gentle Bio-Energetics. Gentle Bio-Energetics is an educational and therapeutic model that integrates verbal and body therapies for healing and growth. The gentle aspect refers to the non-invasive role of the therapist/helper, who nurtures with both touch and verbal interventions. The nature of the gentle touch heals both physical and emotional primal trauma.

Bio-Energetics refers to the individual’s life energy; how it flows freely or is blocked by armour, which results from traumatic life experiences. Butterfly Touch Massage is a light touch therapy that helps to relax the recipient, increase life energy to expand outward. Hence, this can be done to free the person of negative emotions that are trapped in the cells as a result of traumatic life experiences. Butterfly Touch Massage melts the body’s defence system, and it is the first step towards the expansion of life energy to flow.
