Holistic Massage and Bodywork For Relaxation, Healing and Wellbeing
I’m convinced that massage makes life better and is a profoundly positive influence on mind, body and spirit. Alongside the many physical benefits of holistic massage, a good treatment offers a powerful way to reconnect with your inner self, accessing the wisdom and knowing that you hold deep within. When we allow it, this reconnection can lead us to peace and healing, to compassion, growth and creativity. The profound relaxation that bodywork brings can take us to places we’d almost forgotten amid our busy lives. Whichever way you come to it, from pampering treat to medical referral, holistic massage is most beneficial when it becomes a regular part of your wellbeing routine. This is where my passion lies – working with clients in an ongoing fashion, tailoring treatments to suit and support, as you journey through life. This way we can work together to explore and discover what works best for you, deepening and enriching the massage experience session by session. One day a treatment might be engaging with a specific physical issue. Another day the theme might be grounding and acceptance, following challenging news or a difficult situation. Of course, massage can be celebratory too. What better way to enjoy a day off or to kick-start your holiday?
A Blissful Experience
Customised treatments, using an integrated blend of techniques* including, kneading, draining, compression, cross-fibre work, muscle energy and neuromuscular techniques (MET, NMT), deep tissue massage, stretching, joint mobilisation, subtle energy balancing, chakra holds, polarity work, connecting strokes, fascial release and craniosacral style holds, amongst others, leave people feeling profoundly different from when they arrived. Clients speak of feeling… clearer; freer; more comfortable; a deeper sense of peace; refreshed and ready to face the world; more connected and in tune with their body; so very relaxed and sleepy! It’s a different experience every time, and that’s what makes it so powerful. Many clients use ongoing massage for personal development and self awareness. Others come and go through injury recovery; in periods of illness or medical intervention; during pregnancy; and in times of change or difficulty. Massage works well alongside other treatments and many clients use it to complement acupuncture, counselling, chiropractic, osteopathy, physiotherapy or psychotherapy. Often GPs recommend it alongside their care.

Techniques are important”¦and so is appropriate selection and sensitive application, combined with presence and responsiveness during the treatment. There is no formula to massage – it’s a process of touch and response, not a simple routine. My intention is always to provide you with an integrated, flowing, heartfelt massage rather than to perform a series of techniques “on” you.
