A Classical face-up, roll-over and face-down massage that includes traditional hallmark Swedish techniques such as effleurage, pettrisage/kneading, tapotement, friction, bending, stretching and vibration.
These are all combined to create a smooth, flowing massage that releases tension from the uppermost layers of muscle, stimulates circulation and soften connective tissue to leave you feeling super-relaxed yet lighter in yourself and re-energised! Swedish massage can use varying degrees of pressure depending how deeply your body is holding knots, tension and tightness although its often the lighter pressure work that helps your body release and let go of what it no longer wants to hold on to.
Swedish massage uses a range of techniques with the aim of releasing tension. By warming and lengthening the muscles we work to ease tightness and knots and create more relaxed muscle fibers. This is a relaxing treatment which uses varying amounts of pressure depending on your preferences. Every treatment is bespoke as I aim to hone into your unique needs and we discuss which areas you would like me to focus on. A very beneficial and relaxing treatment which helps release stored toxins from muscles, physical and mental tension as well as more specific aches and pains.
I first discovered holistic therapies in 2006 when a friend introduced me to Reiki. The thought of becoming a therapist had never entered my head at that time, but as soon as I started practicing my Reiki skills with friends, family and animals, I realized I had discovered a new passion for the healing arts; something that has influenced my direction in life ever since.
Eager to learn more, I went on to train in Massage Therapy, EFT, Quantum Touch (which I now teach) and Meditation. In June 2014 I went to Chicago USA to become a Facilitator for the highly acclaimed “Passion Test” which has since introduced a coaching element into my therapeutic work.
I am currently studying with the Meta Health Academy in Solihull where I’m learning to identify the specific emotional triggers of dis-ease symptoms. I am always looking for an interesting new case study! Get in touch if you’d like to volunteer and you could gain new insights into your body messages.
Whilst my Number 1 Passion is being a therapist, other things I love are the countryside, nature, walking and amateur photography. I love all animals, and have been a keen horse-owner/rider for many years. I have also played on stage in various folk-rock bands at parties, pubs and festivals for more than 20 years (I think my early experiences of “stage-fright” are what drew me to learning EFT!). My old fiddle and saddle are now quietly – but temporarily! - gathering dust while I concentrate my energy on learning and growing as a therapist.
