Holistic massage is a non manipulative form of bodywork, suitable for all ages and body types.
It works with muscles, bones, skin, fascia, and many of the body’s systems including the digestive, cardiovascular and nervous system. It can also be used as a tool to work with mental and emotional well-being, hence being a holistic approach to bodywork.
Our physical well-being can be so intricately connected with our mental well-being, and this style of massage is particularly beneficial to those suffering with the physiological and psychological effects of stress, anxiety and depression.
Each treatment starts with a consultation to find out what you would like from the massage and what would be best suited for you on that day. I don’t follow a routine, and I don’t chat to you during a treatment so that you can fully tune into your body and the physical experience.
I trained at Bristol College of Massage & Bodywork in 2013, and have since completed courses in Indian Head Massage, pregnancy massage, hot stones massage, visceral massage, myofascial work, and more. I can incorporate different styles into one session.
I now teach at the college I trained at, and have also done a bit of teaching on the complementary therapy degree course at Cardiff Met. I trained with and am still a member of the Massage Training Institute.
