The History of Massage

My Massage

I initially trained in Swedish Massage, back in 1997. I have since developed my own personal style that is intuitive and meditative. I ‘read’ my client before we start; by this I mean, I get an idea of how they would like to feel when the treatment is over, what their needs are at that specific moment, where their pain is and where their mind is. Sometimes I guide them into a meditative state verbally, sometimes we stay silent, it is as variable as the weather. No treatment is ever the same.

Due to many years of teaching yoga, adjusting bodies, studying movement, teaching meditation, I feel confident in treating anybody and pretty much anywhere. I have my own practice in my own home, with beautiful sea views, or I can do home visits if needed/preferred. 

Massage is touch. As nurtured and cared for infants, we were touched continuously, held, rocked, stroked, unfortunately this seems to taper off as we mature. Touch is the keystone to massage. How we touch is of paramount importance to enable the other person to feel both safe and relaxed. Not only will you be enveloped in a safe, soothing space, you will also receive a deep sense of mind/body connection.  The message being we are not the chatter, we are not the emotions, we can become the space, the surrender, it’s a joint venture. I guide you to places you can let go, down to your bones.
