Cornstarch Me

October 3, 2021

Good morning and happy Sunday! I’ve recently gone back to school to study massage therapy. In our first week of class, we learned a concept of “corn-starching”

Here is a short video that I hope explains the idea…

Let me know your thoughts in the comments. How do you think the idea of “corn-starching” may apply to everyday life?

Thanks for watching and for sharing your thoughts!

With love and gratitude,

Nina 💓

  1. Hi Nina,

    1). It’s important to understand the focus of healing; understand the nature of the art medium one proposes to manipulate into pliability and know how to move past the rigid resistance (what may be locked in and holding dis-ease) and how to relieve its resistance (and help create ease)

    2). There is a modality of body work called Myofacial Release. This system may be energetic, but it is technically a physical principle of body manipulation that releases from the facia (a connective tissue within the body though to be a venue of communication within the body and covers all the organs in the body; particularly visible covering muscle groups) blockages that cause pain, indicate held trauma that can lead to serious diseases (in theory of-course) YOUR BREATHING AND HOW YOU ALLOW YOUR FINGERS TO EASE INTO THE CORNSTARCH remind me of how one would initiate access to facia manipulation.

    3) Reiki work would be exemplified by your demonstration as an analogy – ease and breath into the work being done.

    Im sure there is more to be distilled from the demonstration, but these were what came to mind.

    You must be in a very dedicated and devoted high quality/integrity program to teach this.

    It’s very impressive.

    1. Hi Grumpy! So good to see you!
      Thank you for sharing your thoughts—I always read and reread them.
      Breath and ease…yes. In all things. Especially when communicating with touch. Be it physically or energetically…ease and breath.
      Is it ok if I send a virtual hug your way?
      Nina 😊

    1. Hahaha! I love your response, Renee. I had the same…Whoa. Super cool.
      Fun activity to do with the kids. Just mix water and cornstarch to a thick (let stand a bit) consistency—kids can take markers and draw on the top. 🤪

  2. Your post made me read up on corn starch for massages. It seems it beneficial. I can remember my Mom using it for areas of the skin that chaffing happened. I use it for thickening gravy, or other liquids. Love that one more massage therapist will be going out there in the world. My son is one and I love to get them.

  3. Very cool Nina! I’m glad you’re heading into massage therapy, you can be a great help to many people that way. That is something I need, but the cost was too prohibitive unfortunately. But it sure helped a lot while I was getting it. Enjoy your day Nina!😃🖐😻🌞

    1. Thank you, Steve. I used to practice massage therapy years ago…this time is different. I am different and it is my prayer that I can be a help to others. How? Not sure yet…letting the process happen…like cornstarch. Without forcing it—just a gentle surrendering. ✨😊🖐😻✨
