My approach to massage works with the natural intelligence of the body – Its capacity to heal and adapt is truly profound. As well as being solution-focused I aim to facilitate a state of deep relaxation in which the body’s natural healing capacity is optimised.
I believe that health is more than the absence of pain or disease—it encompasses a state of complete well-being that allows us to thrive and reach our greatest potential. With this in mind, I take a holistic approach to massage therapy. Treatments address musculoskeletal issues at their root cause, considering optimal posture and identifying any underlying physical dysfunction in the body. They also take into account that, sometimes, our bodies hold tension in response to physical and/or emotional experiences as a way of armouring or protecting us. With this in mind, treatments always combine lots of flowing and nurturing strokes alongside deep tissue techniques. By allowing your body to find the sense of calm and safety it needs to surrender, we invite, rather than force muscles to release tension.
Every body is wonderfully unique and every body deserves massage therapy! Whether you are wanting to resolve musculoskeletal pain, reduce stress, or enhance your vitality – it would be my honour to walk with you on your path to wellness.
