You may be wondering what is a Holistic Bodyworker?
Holistic is a term used to describe therapies that attempt to treat the person as a whole person, a general term for therapeutic methods that centre on the body for the promotion of physical health and emotional and spiritual well-being.
Bodywork includes massage, various systems of touch and manipulation, relaxation techniques, and practices designed to affect the body's energy flow.
I have been a fully qualified and insured sports and therapeutic massage therapist since 2004 but am interested in you as a person, not just a body!
"When you touch one thing with deep awareness,
you touch everything."
- Lao Tzu
where East meets West
Fusion Massage is coined from a phrase used by
The Jing Institute of Advanced Massage www.jingmassage.com
where I completed some training.
These people seriously changed my way of looking at massage.
I have been qualified for over 18 years and have always advertised myself as a 'Sports Therapist' or 'Remedial Massage Therapist' because I thought it made me sound serious about my work - which believe me, I am - but these guys showed me it is ok to include some of the Eastern influences I am interested in into what I do.
So if you come to me in pain I will call upon my knowledge of traditional sports and swedish massage with myofascial and trigger point work, perhaps hot stones and a little Shiatsu thrown in.
The end result is to get you out of pain and on the way to feeling yourself again.
My way of working is intuitive; I do not use routines but work in the best way to treat what I have been presented with.
I do not however claim to be able to cure you in one go - if it feels better after one visit then wonderful but the chances are we will see each other a few times and then for maintenance - much like servicing your car!
Sometimes a deep-tissue massage is not what you are looking for;
you are tired, stressed and need to unwind
I can look after you with:-
Relaxing Massage - 30/45/60 mins
Whole body or the area that needs the most love (back, neck and shoulders?)
Hot Stone Treatment
Add these to your massage at no extra cost and you won't want to leave!
Thai Foot Massage - 45 mins/Express Treatment - 30 mins
You are on your feet all day - do you give them the attention they deserve?
Thai Foot Massage is a massage of the lower legs and feet that originated in Thailand about 2000 years ago. With elements of Shiatsu, Reflexology, Chinese massage and Yoga incorporated into the treatment.
Stimulated lymphatic drainage
Helps remove toxins
Helps reduce stress
Holistic Facial - 45 mins/Express - 30 mins
Not only a wonderful way to relax and promote a sense of well-being, but a holistic facial can also improve the texture of the skin, increase circulation and encourage rejuvenation and cellular activity
I am pleased to announce that I have now started to use
Using techniques and natural products rather than complex and unnecessary additives, fantastic results can be achieved
The natural and healthy alternative to cosmetic surgery
Full treatment includes head massage and hands or feet
Express treatment includes hands or feet
Reiki - 45 mins
Reiki (universal life energy) is a Japanese technique for stress reduction and relaxation that also promotes healing, bringing you into a state of balance.
A complete Reiki session is offered to you fully clothed, with you lying on a treatment table or sitting comfortably supported in a chair.
Most commonly, Reiki is offered through light, non-invasive touch with the practitioner's hands placed and held on a series of locations on the head and front and back of the torso. The placement of the hands will never be intrusive or inappropriate, nor should there be any pressure.
A treatment feels like a wonderful glowing radiance that flows through and around you. Reiki treats the whole person including body, emotions, mind and spirit creating many beneficial effects that include relaxation and feelings of peace, security and wellbeing. Many have reported wonderful results.
You pay for my time, regardless of the treatment
