Finnish Self-massage 

Release subtle tension in your body and mind!

Let go of deep inner stress

Finnish self-massage is a new movement practice for releasing subtle tension in your muscles, fascia and nervous system. With minimal, but profound movements, you can work with deep-lying stress that drains your energy and emotions. Afterward, you will feel fresh and rejuvenated.

What is subtle tension?

We can often feel when we have a tense neck or tense shoulders, but there is another type of stress that goes deeper and affects us on a more subtle level. Normally, we don’t feel this kind of strain. However, even though it goes under our radar and mostly operates on a subconscious level, it drains our energy and emotions.

What is emotional tension?

Sometimes subtle tension is physical in it’s nature, sometimes emotional. When we experience loss or sadness, it also affects our bodies. As protection, we might slightly contract our chest and heart areas. If we don’t release the tension, our bodies can conserve the reaction for a long time after the actual experience has passed. 

Movingness, Helena Wirén-Westerlund, testimonial

While working with Peter, I found there’s life in my body. Something I can listen to, be in touch with, and communicate with. Today, I’m listening to my body. I know when to say yes, and when to say no. My body tells me.

Overview of the training

The course includes

  • In every station, there are three different movements.
  • When you you’ve gone through all stations, you have gently worked with and opened up your whole body. 
  • You will learn three stations at a time, so after three lessons you will know the whole series.
  • The whole practice takes about 20 min to do.
  • Every lesson includes, videos, illustrations, and downloadable audios in mp3 format. 

Learn how to

  • Awaken your interoception and become mindful of your body.
  • Feel the feelings in your body and gently work with them.
  • Use micro-movements in different positions to release tension in muscles, fascia, and the nervous system.
