This wonderful full body massage has a deeply calming effect on your nervous system.
It looks to move the energy in your whole body and generates a holistic sense of well being.
It is both relaxing and relieving, both deep and subtle, depending on your needs during each individual session.
Each session starts with a brief conversation so I can understand your needs and expectations for that particular session.
When we are holding tension in our skeletal-muscle system it can have many adverse effects upon our physical, emotional and psychological well being. A good massage can be the means to alleviate tension and open up the doorway to improved health and happiness.
My work combines Californian Massage with techniques from different styles of massage, such as Deep Tissue, Reflexology, Indian Head Massage and Lomi Lomi (traditional Hawaiian massage).
This holistic massage provides a great feeling of rest, relief, support and relaxation.
It is characterised by long, fluid and enveloping movements which generate a sense of integration in the entire body, giving space to release any tension, anxieties and blocked emotions that can emerge during a session.
The different strokes are performed with the hands, forearms and elbows, using oils and creams to help the movement flow and feel good. The massage may include passive joint movements and stretches as well as deep and precise work in the areas of more tension using deep tissue techniques.
Some of the essential characteristics that differentiate this manual therapy from others are the quality of touch and the state of presence– being here and now, with what you feel and what you need.
This style of massage is an invitation to let go of everything that you’ve been holding onto. It is a moment to stop and release which helps alleviate physical and emotional tensions, bringing about mental clarity and the feeling of well being. It is an invitation to feel and rediscover your own natural balance.
After receiving this massage it is common to feel lighter, in a better mood, relieved, with an overall sense of emotional and physical well-being.
Healthy physical contact in a respectful environment can be a great step towards your well-being. It is an experience that brings awareness of the state of the body, the mind and the emotions, encouraging and empowering you to take responsibility for your own well-being and happiness
