The massage I give works into deep tissues, releasing both acute tension and chronic holding patterns of tension, addressing muscular, skeletal and soft tissue imbalances. My training also encompasses myofascial release techniques, allowing me to work with restrictions in connective tissue that account for symptoms such as limited flexibility, pain or tension that recurs over and over, and emotional imbalances.
Clients repeatedly comment on the uniqueness of my treatment, as it is so tailored to the individual. I have been told I have a sixth sense that manages to tune in and connect with the person’s body and mind, going much deeper than just a physical treatment.
What are my treatments for?
What interests me as a massage therapist?
Working closely with people to engage the natural healing process of the body. I greatly value the personal relationship that is built between myself and my clients, through sensitive listening, intuition and working across styles from different therapeutic modalities.
I am very interested in how mental dis-ease manifests in the body, chronic illness and its effect on the body, and also the effect of trauma.
What will the massage be like?
Each treatment I give is unique and is based on how I feel your body is communicating through your energetic field and in response to my work.
I begin each treatment with a consultation or a catch-up if you are a returning client, and between us we determine how I can best treat you today, and any priorities you have.
I normally treat the full body to address the energetic flow throughout your whole being, and to promote a sense of mind/body connection.
Compared to other massage therapists I work quite slowly so that I can work more deeply and intuitively, and for this reason I also do not use an excessive amount of oil.
My approach address musculoskeletal tension and dysfunction, but I will always consider and work with restrictions in fascia (the continuous band of connective tissue that runs throughout the entire body). I also incorporate some techniques from thai yoga massage, as this is a part of my practice.
Clients always leaving feeling lighter, rejuvenated, relaxed and usually booking a follow-up session!
