Bodywork & Energy Therapy
I work with both men and women with a variety of physical and emotional symptoms. I believe that what manifests within is us will always be reflected externally. In other words, the body is the best gateway to understand our internal balances, blockages, pain, discomfort or ailments.
I practice an integrated form of bodywork or massage therapy that is inspired by Yoga Biomechanics & Physiology, Thai Massage Therapy, Traditional Chinese Medicine principles, Ayurveda principles, Myofascial Tissue Therapy, Vibrational Therapy, Sound Therapy and joint releasing practices. Each healing session is between 1.5-2 hours and focuses on breathing, releasing, stretching and manipulating the body to help restore its organic balance through the subtle energetic lines within it.
These are tailored private session. An initial evaluation and assessment will be made in our first session together. We will also explore aspects of your lifestyle, habits and various holding patterns to ensure you have a holistic experience. Please note that this is a private session and I only accept clients I feel that I can best serve or help.
About the modalities
Thai Massage Therapy
About Thai Yoga Massage Traditional Thai Yoga Massage is a therapeutic technique of bodywork that was developed over 2,500 years ago by Jivaka Komarabhacca, a friend and physician to the Buddha and renowned as a healer in Buddhist tradition. The founder was both a yogi and an Ayurvedic doctor. When Buddhist monks and nuns migrated from India to Sri Lanka, Laos, Cambodia, Burma, and Thailand, they brought the knowledge of Thai Massage and medicine with them.
Thai Yoga Massage stimulates and balances the flow of healing energy within the body, opening the areas which are blocked bringing the receiver deeper into balance and harmony for health, happiness and wellness of being. This type of therapy works really well to alleviate various physical and emotional ailments from back pain, digestive issues and stress-induced conditions.
Myofascial Release Therapy
Myofascial Release Therapy is a safe and very effective hands-on technique that involves applying gentle sustained pressure into myofascial connective tissue restrictions to eliminate pain and restore motion. This soft tissue can become restricted due to overuse, emotional and physical trauma, infection, inactivity, and muscle tension. When the Myofascial tissue is compromised, pain sensations often results due to diminished blood flow. The technique is slow and always waits for the body’s natural rhythm. The fascia then responds by elongating, rehydrating, and reorganising. In addition memories, associated emotional states and beliefs can rise to the level of conscious awareness and it is here that trauma can be released. Each treatment follows the unique lines of tensions in each patient’s body in order to reach deeply into the tissues and uncover significant restrictions. The treatment is performed on the skin with no oils or creams.
Vibrational healing is a practice that hinges on the understanding and belief that everything in our Universe is energy, including us. When we talk about health, we often only consider our physical bodies but as multidimensional beings, we are made up of different levels of energetic frequencies.
Our physical, emotional, mental and spiritual well-being are all affected by the health of our energy systems. Without considering our subtle energies, we may be merely covering up our symptoms.
Everything that we experience or come into contact with has an effect on our energy system. This effect is usually small, and our vibration corrects itself after a short period of time. However, some experiences can have a profound and long-term effect on our energetic body.
Through this modality, we learn to balance and enhance our individual energies encouraging our energy waves to vibrate at their optimum frequencies once again. Some techniques will focus on cleansing our auras of negative energies, while others will flood our body with positive frequencies that will encourage our vibration to restore & harmonise. This is known as resonance.
