Quotes on Massage:

Both "Touch"-By-Massage and "Touch"-By-water Restore the body To Its Natural Condition Of Non-"Difference" From The Universal Energy Of Which it Is Inherently A Part. Therefore, Practices Involving "Touch"-By-Massage and Practices Involving "Touch"-By-water Are Both Basic (and Even Necessary) To The Maintenance Of bodily Health and Well-being. (page 175)

Rightly Administered Massage Breaks The Apparent Isolation Of the bodily-sensation--"Reminding" the one Being Massaged That the body Is Not a Separate "something", but (Rather) Part Of An Indivisible Energy-Field. (page 174)

Both quotes are from the section from "Yogic Conductivity Massage" in Right Life Is Free Participation In Unlimited Radiance, by Adi Da Samraj
