With Christmas and New Year just around the corner it’s time for a big thank you to all my lovely clients, students and supervisees. It’s been a wonderful year and wouldn’t have been the same without you!

All best wishes,
I’ve been doing Bikram yoga since December 2011, when my sister bought me a set of classes to help me through the winter. I’ve always hated hot, humid environments so I thought it was going to be hell on earth! But being a lover of physical exertion, I had to give it a go…
…and oh my word, I love it! The heat remains a challenge, but the focus required to remain in the room and engage with the postures, and the quieting of the mind that comes from that, is awesome. I feel my body changing shape, and my mind getting stronger, week by week.
I also love discovering parallels between yoga and massage. In my massage sessions there’s the same blend of activity and stillness, as with the alternating of active postures and restful savasana. Often we might work with deep pressure and strong focus to help something release, and then there’s the all important pause when the integration can happen.
Through the physical sensations of touch, movement and different pressures, paces and rhythms there’s the opportunity to drop into a more inner place where the outside world of expectation and busyness disappears. This inner place is often a place of rejuvenation, of creativity and of peace.
And with awareness of the breath we can link body and mind in the simplest and most profound way.
That’s why I say, Love Bikram ~ Love Massage!
Happy sunshine days,
I want to take a moment to thank everyone who attended my first ever Effortless Massage workshop on Saturday. It was so lovely to share my approach with other professionals and explore and enjoy ways of working more effectively with less strain; creating more presence and engagement and needing less busyness.
Integrating qi gong worked, as I hoped it would, to highlight the essence of doing more with less; of creating ease and efficiency through relaxing and letting go of outcomes and expectations.
I have Dario Gerchi to thank for my love of qi gong. I think I’ve been attending his classes for longer than I’ve been massaging. You can find out more about his work by following this link to his qi gong website.
I’m getting a chance to revisit the workshop in Devon on May 20th, when I’ll be visiting the MTI South West Regional Group. If you’re a member of MTI and you’ll be in the South West on May 20th, please come and join us! It’ll be more fun if you’re there.
Call me for more details.
Saturday March 17th I’ll be taking it easy with a group of fellow massage practitioners as we explore how effortless massage can be.
My one day workshop will explore themes of economy, efficacy and effortlessness, through a variety of exercises and activities, including plenty of hands-on massage. We’ll explore how much more less can be and how to maximise self-care simply by paying really good attention to yourself.
We’ll be stepping back a bit and allowing the magic to happen… trusting in the body’s innate drive for health and wellbeing, and facilitating its expression through effective touch.
I’ll be drawing on my ten years massage experience, my ongoing qi gong practice, and my explorations and pennies dropping whilst running and swimming.
And I’ll be sharing my ceaseless desire to do as little as possible, but to do it well!
Come and join us. It’ll be even better if you’re there too.
I’m really looking forward to February 5th.
I’ll be facilitating a massage practice day for the Bristol College of Massage and Bodywork. It’s essentially a day long mentoring session with a group of lovely massage lovers.
The group sets the agenda and I facilitate, support, encourage, share and generally keep the day moving smoothly (kettle on, biscuits out…).
Want to practice and develop massage of a particular part of the body? Want to refresh techniques you’ve already learned to boost confidence? Need to talk some client issues over in a safe, confidential space? Maybe you want to revise some anatomy or pathology to fine tune your hands-on work?
Yes. Yes. Yes.
You can be part of the fabulous Feb 5th group if you’ve done an introductory workshop with the College, are currently on, or have done, the professional training course, or are in professional practice as a massage therapist.
Call BCMB on 0117 3771201 to book your place. Or call me on 07976 710368 to find out more about the day. Places are limited, so make sure you get yours.
I look forward to seeing you there.
