The word Ziva comes from old Slavic culture. The word Ziva is used for describing universal life energy or force. It is known in other cultures as Prana, Chi, Ki, Qi, it depends on in which part of the world you are at. 

There is nothing better which would describe the healing power of massage as Ziva.

It is an energy, which is present in whole universe, in every single cell, in every single atom of our body, massage as well as yoga or many other techniques helps its fluent flow. Ziva in itself is invisible. However, in certain situations, the results of its “work” are strongly visible on the body. 

It is thanks to Ziva that a wound heals “by itself”. Ziva is a vibration with no beginning and no end. It keeps changing, like everything in the universe. All that exists has been created by this power. When a person is active and looks healthy, it shows thathey have plenty of Ziva. When energy flows fluently in the body, everything works well. However, when energy flows slowly, we feel weak and tired and we can fall ill, eventually. During massage like shiatsu, etc. we stimulate the body, so we restart energy flow and we can use it. The energy flow can become smooth.

History of Massage

Massage is an intuitive healing art that has been around for millennia. Massage therapy is based on our instinct to rub areas that hurt. The oldest written record of massage is approximately 4000 years old. It was found in a Chinese medical text, dated at about 1800 BC. These text informs in detail the application of massage techniques for therapeutic purposes. Other cultures had their own take on the massage therapy, Greeks and Romans have been using it for centuries as well. Although massage is as old as humankind, massage began to emerge as an independent and widely used therapeutic modality in the 1950s and 1960s, fully coming into its own in the 1980s and 1990s. During those decades, massage was more widely accepted, recognized, used, developed, marketed and organized than at any other period in its long history. And, it continues to develop into the new millennium. Specific massage types, such as Reflexology, have been depicted in Egyptian hieroglyphs as forms of hand and foot therapy Massage includes many methods such as deep tissue massage, myofascial release and trigger point therapy as well as reiki, osteopathic techniques, cranial-sacral techniques and many more types can be used to work with various medical conditions. Light massage is also used in pain management and palliative care. Most recently, there has been an explosion of research, development and interest in massage therapy.

About me

Ziva Massage Therapy Newtwnards

I'm Michal, holistic therapist or holistic health advisor. I started my career as normal ordinary massage therapist. During the years I was doing further and further studies and courses to improve my ability to treat people's problems. Though, it was never enough, the more difficult the problems, the more studies I've been through and still there are people which needs better solution for their more complicated issues. That's why I started looking where the problems come from. Why there is so many people having health problems and why I can't keep up with the growing numbers of clients even there is so many therapists around. I've found the reason and then, I realized you don't need me. You don't need us — massage therapists, physiotherapists, healers, etc. No, you don't, unless you need to help us with your recovery after accidents, break-ups or when you seek nice pampering, when you need a warm human touch, when you feel down or stressed and so on. That's what we are here for. To help you find a balance. To guide you back to your natural state, which should be happiness, joy, freedom of your body and your mind. As a business owner I should say, " Hey, come every week for a massage, take this herb, or whatever I can tell you to have good profit out of your problems." But as a holistic therapist I know it's not true.

All you need is to start owning your body. Owning the responsibility for your own health. All you need is working hard on building up your own temple-your body, the only thing you really own your entire life.  This commercially based society creates an illusion, that it's OK to feel bad, tired, ill, stressed at any age, as there is a whole army of professionals waiting to help you with that and you don't have to worry about it, what you eat, what you don't/do. And that is very sad. Money and profit took over the nature. All of you have the potential to keep yourself in great condition by focusing on prevention. How you feel in your body is only a mirror. It shows you how you don't/take care of yourself. People are getting this illusion ever since childhood, that someone else can take the responsibility for their feelings, which makes them lazy. Ready made, heavily processed food, so you don't have to cook, water in the bottle, so you can drink anywhere and anytime, cars, so you don't have to walk, therapists, so you don't have to exercise, psychologist, so you don't have to learn how to manage your own mind. And that is sad. You grow up with this illusion without even question it. No one teaches you at schools how to cook healthy, how to eat healthy, how to exercise your body and your mind, how to be an independent and self-confident person. That's why I stopped being a part of this army of helpers. That's why I stopped being the one, which helps you out any time you need me. Instead, I become a teacher. I teach my clients how they can take care about them self’s. My purpose in life is to help people to find the root of their problem instead of just treating the results. My purpose is to guide them step by step and showing them how to enjoy their journey instead of showing them where to go. My purpose is being the light, which lights up their path, instead of walking it with them or for them. I can open the right door for you, but it's up to you to take the steps. Start owning your body, your life, and your happiness. I'll be more than happy to teach you how to do it, how to become a self-confident, healthy, independent, shining, free and happy person. All you need to do is to accept that fact that you already are one and always was, you just need to find where you've lost it, where is the smiling, flexible, baby full of energy and enthusiasm. When and how you become stressed, ill, stiff and unhappy adult. I can help you with the answers to this question and how to change it. I'm holistic therapist, and this is what I'm here for. To find that amazing person your already are, that person which has been forgotten in this fast moving society, in this busy lifestyle we all live today.
