MOON SPA CEREMONIES
The phases of the moon effect influence over the ebb and flow of the Earth's
oceans. Like the oceans, our bodies are also influenced by the phases of the moon.
Energies wax and wane in rhythms similar to those of the ocean. At times we need
stillness, at others great waves of energy engulf us and inspire us to be out going
The Balinese pay a great deal of attention to the phases of the moon and it is through this understanding that Oazia have developed a full phase of lunar energy treatments.
By tuning into your own rhythms you can sense if your body is aligned to the moon's phases. The treatment that is right for you, the one that feels the most appropriate, may not be the current phase of the moon but this is not significant. This can be because as a 'civilization' we have moved beyond our natural connection to the physical universe. So chose the treatment that 'feels' the best and slowly realign your 'self' to the natural planetary cycles.
TILEM - Nurture of the Dark Moon
"An excellent treatment to take when the body needs retreat and the moon is dark. Healing during Tilem can support the core inner strength of the body to make changes both physically and emotionally. It is a time for concentrated perception and self-awareness where the focus of the mind can be inward.
