I am a fully qualified and insured massage therapist. My priority is to give a bespoke treatment, always making sure that I reach an extremely high standard. I offer client-focused treatments, tailored to your needs and abilities. Having loads of inspiration in yoga and meditation, my style of massage is distinctly relaxing and stress-relieving, with a blend of deep tissue strokes and massage tools like hot stones.
My further offerings include:
Lomi Lomi - a traditional Hawaiian massage that uses a combination of massage techniques, nut oils and elements of prayer, breathing and dance to restore energy and soothe the body. It is also known as a ''Loving Hands'' massage. This name helps to explain principles - the massage works gently yet deeply into the muscles with continuous, flowing strokes allowing the recipient to relax and give in to the nurturing touch. It is a ceremony with an intention. Lomi Lomi works from the belief that memories are not just stored in the brain and mind, but also in every cell of the human body. The long, continuous strokes of the massage are designed to help the body let go of its old patterns and behaviours, which can cause as many stresses and strains as muscle tension.
Ayurvedic Yoga Massage - a combination of deep, oil massage strokes with coordinated breathwork and assisted body stretches. The entire treatment takes place upon a mattress on the floor, which allows me to use both hands and feet for a highly effective technique to the massage and yoga-based stretches. A small amount of oil is mixed with a scrubbing powder called Calamus, an Ayurvedic herbal remedy that stimulates the skin and pulls out the toxins from the body to improve circulation. The unique, comprehensive approach to the body dissolves physical and emotional blockages, helps eliminate toxins, promotes correct posture, improves respiratory patterns and enhances energy levels.
Pregnancy massage - this treatment is adapted to the needs of all mums-to-be. It's a wonderful way to prepare a woman for childbirth physically and emotionally. It is one of the best choices that a woman can take for prenatal care. Pregnancy is a special state, which changes body and mind, brings about a big range of emotions, unusual pains and aches. It's a magical time, and a regular massage can enable you to enjoy this journey fully. Prenatal massage has its own sets of benefits that it provides to both the expecting mother and the baby. Some benefits include relaxation from nervous tension, leg cramps, backaches, stiff neck, swelling, encouraging lymph and blood circulation, reducing stress. Also, provides relief from various hormonal changes such as anxiety, stress, and depression. It also helps to improve the sleep of a pregnant woman. After 9 long months of pregnancy, every woman is relieved to go through successful delivery and to see their baby strong and healthy. However, this experience can be life-changing, affecting the entire body and thus requires proper management.
Postnatal massage is one of the vital procedures required after delivery and helps in the recovery process for the new mother thus helping restore the body to its normal shape. It’s good to note that the recovery process normally takes time especially when it comes to the healing of internal scars. This can cause the mother to experience uncomfortable cramps which could range from mild to severe. Many other issues do normally come up including fatigue, body aches and anxiety all of which can easily be dealt with using postnatal massage.
Soon, I will be also offering holistic facial treatments.
