I got a nice conversation with Lakay ALsent Magbaya Aghama tonight about the practice of Massage in Hilot.
Technically we teach Hilot is not massage and here in the academy we do not call Massage as Hilot but instead we call it as Pahid. So that is already given.
Now, in Hilot Pahid unlike massage we do not allow our patient to sleep compared to a regular massage that is quite relaxing Hilot Pahid is not.
Do not be mistaken that the pressure in Hilot Pahid is heavy or hard. We just only use moderate pressure. We do not want to create more trouble with our patient but instead we fix their problem rather than creating more injury. The pain you experience in Hilot Pahid is not because of the pressure that the provider is giving but it only means that the problem is being addressed. With constant repetition (orasyon) of the stroke, the pain will subside until it will be gone.
Hilot Pahid procedure is a form of conscious soul retrieval. It is believed that when a person goes to sleep, his/ her soul wonders away. But our purpose in doing Hilot Pahid is to pull back the wondering soul back to the patients body while awake.
As we talk about practicing hilot pahid through memory working on our experience, the Hilot Pahid session allows interactive communication between provider and receiver.
The whole Hilot Pahid session becomes a confirmatory consultation and at the same time as treatment.
Each stroke and manipulation we do to the body of our patient is a form of communication not only to the body parts but as well as to the emotional, mental, social and spiritual body of the receiver.
So again as i will emphasize, Hilot is not a Massage even we do massage there is a big difference between the two.
Hilot is an Interactive Communication as well as it is a Prayer in Action.
