What is the Metamorphic Technique?
Everyone can benefit from the massage from new born babies to the elderly.
Studies have shown that the baby is aware of what is happening outside the womb.
Any trauma through the pregnancy or during the birthing process, would cause anxiety, which could cause energy blocks, the person could then carry this characteristic with them into later life.
The Metamorphic Technique is a gentle and soothing massage of the feet, hands and head which can help to release the energy blocks created during pregnancy, or during the birth.
After sessions of the metamorphic massage, when the blockages and anxieties have been removed, people realise they have great potential.
Many people find themselves managing their lives in a more positive way.
Relationships may improve and they often take a different path in their career, as they transform their old patterns of behaviour.
The training has been available for many years but the subject is still not widely known.
Robert Saint-John (1912 - 1996) was the founder of the method, which he originally called the Pre-Natal Therapy.
Pre-Natal Therapy was later renamed The Metamorphic Technique, the name by which it is referred to today.
Robert Saint-John, while practising reflexology realised that while working on certain parts of the foot a client would speak about their mother or father often releasing memories of their birth.
He concluded that reflexology works on a physical map of the body, but that there was also a psychological map, of the time we spent in the womb and our experience before and during our birthing.
Our birth is one of the most traumatic things that will ever happen to us, we carry the memory in our subconscious mind throughout life.
The first decision we ever make in life is the decision to be born.
Caesarean births are necessary for the safety of the mother and baby, but the baby was not able to make its first decision i.e. to be born, therefore can often be indecisive in life.
If a mother-to-be experiences any trauma, anxiety or is unhappy the baby will pick up the emotions she is feeling. An unwanted baby will be aware of this.
If there is an unhappy or argumentative home environment the baby will also experience this, and become anxious.
The baby will then carry the anxiety into the world with it and this could have an effect on their behaviour throughout their lives.
Another theory is that if a woman is afraid of giving birth, it could be that she had a traumatic birth herself, and is carrying the memory in her subconscious mind.
