Holistic/Deep Tissue/Pregnancy Massage & Bodywork
Give yourself the time….
I have been practicing since 2001, and trained with both the Bristol School of Massage and the Bristol College of Massage & Bodywork (BCMB). I now teach with BCMB, and I also have a background in working with people with drugs and mental health issues.
My belief about & experience of bodywork is that it can be a different and nourishing way to help somebody to re-connect to ‘being in their body’, as well as supporting people on many physical & emotional levels, and with a wide range of health needs.
For example, sessions can help to:
Ease deep muscular tensions & promote joint mobility and flexibility
Improve circulation, stimulating blood & lymph flow
Reduce stress, anxiety and their effects
Aid digestion & promote deeper breathing
Support through trauma and illness, and promote optimum health and healing
Connect with emotions and increase self/body awareness
Massage & bodywork can also be fantastic during pregnancy, supporting you and your body through changes, in preparation for birth, as well as connecting and supporting you and your baby throughout the different stages of pregnancy.
I also believe this should not be something that is simply ‘done to you’, or that it should be a ‘routine’. I work holistically, which means the sessions will be tailored to your individual physical & emotional health at the time, and I work with you – everybody is unique, so every body holds different experiences and stories.
At the first session, I will complete a confidential consultation with you. We will always discuss and agree areas to focus on, and I will work with you throughout, adapting pressure & techniques (which may include deep tissue/mobilisations/stretches/holds/breathwork…) depending on your needs. At the end, I will discuss aftercare with you, to support you away from the session.
I can also offer seated appointments if it is uncomfortable for you to lie on a couch.
