Butterfly Touch Massage is developed and patterned by Dr. Eva Reich, MD while working with premature babies in Harlem Hospital during 1951-1952. Eva realised that Butterfly Touch Massage works equally well for children and adults as well as with elderly. Butterfly Touch Massage is a light touch therapy that helps to relax the person so that more work can be done to free the person of negative emotions that are trapped in the cells as a result from traumatic life experience. Butterfly Touch Massage melts the body’s defense system and it is the first step towards expansion of life force.
Eva Reich is the daughter of psychoanalyst Dr. Wilhelm Reich who later discovered orgone energy-the energy responsible for the biological pulsation of life on Earth.
Eva Reich coined his father’s gentle work and developed it as Gentle Bio-Energetics. Gentle Bio-Energetics is an educational and therapeutic model that integrates verbal and body therapies for healing and growth. The gentle aspect refers to the non-invasive role of the therapist/helper, who nurtures with both touch and verbal interventions. Bio-Energetics refers to the individual’s life energy; how it flows freely or is blocked by armor, which results from traumatic life experiences.
