Masseuse Offers "Art of Touch"

How can the simple act of touch promote so many health benefits? Dr. Andrew Weil, an expert on traditional methods of healing, says that for one thing, the skin is the body's largest organ, containing more than 5 million touch receptors that send messages to the brain.

He points out research which shows that the rhythmic pressure of massage lowers your heart rate and blood pressure while it improves blood circulation, ferrying oxygen and other nutrients to the cells and removing waste products (such as lactic acid) from the muscles. It also promotes the flow of lymphatic fluid (enhancing immune function), lowers levels of stress hormones, and boosts production of endorphins, the body's natural painkillers.

Inside the SunBreeze Hotel in San Pedro, there is a small massage studio that practices the power of human touch: The Art of Touch Massage Studio, just off the lobby near the gift shop. Karen Taylor, the owner and a licensed therapist, came to Belize from Toronto, Canada, bringing with her a wealth of knowledge in massage therapy and the healing arts.

Among the therapeutic services she offers is a practice called Reiki (pronounced ray-key) a natural healing treatment in which Taylor uses a series of hand positions placed on the client’s body to convey the type of human energy flow so powerfully demonstrated by the story of the Massachusetts twins. Reiki is a Japanese word meaning “Universal Life-Force-Energy.” She also offers aromatherapy massage – the use of revitalizing oils to help elevate your mind and body to complete relaxation.

“A treatment with Karen is an excellent finish to a long day on the waters of Ambergris Caye, or after exploring the sandy streets of San Pedro,” says Julia Edwards, general manager of the SunBreeze, strategically located just across the street from the San Pedro airstrip.

The Spanish-Caribbean style SunBreeze Hotel is right on the beach overlooking the Caribbean Sea, with 42 spacious air-conditioned rooms with ceiling fan, direct dial telephone, cable TV, private bath with hot and cold showers, and most rooms that feature two double beds. There are five premier ocean-view rooms with jacuzzi bath, and mini-refrigerator, perfect for honeymooners. There are 13 newly designed standard rooms and 24 deluxe rooms; all boast partial ocean and garden views.

The hotel features a dive shop, bicycle rental, beach volleyball and a fresh water swimming pool surrounded by a large wooden deck. The popular “Blue Water Grill” beachside restaurant specializes in island cuisine with a twist. Adjoining the restaurant is an open-air bar that offers a wide variety of tropical drinks.

SunBreeze Hotel is perfectly located within the town of San Pedro, with easy access to activities and entertainment on Ambergris Caye.

Reiki and the massage would be great, especially for people in chronic pain.
