For over 25 years I have been exploring and developing my practices in massage and bodywork, yoga and chi kung. A certified therapist since 2000; therapies include:
Thai Yoga Massage - TYM is carried out on a futon. The recipient wears loose comfortable clothing. It is a unique massage therapy combining applied yoga, acupressure and gentle stretching. Dubbed the lazy person’s yoga because when relaxed we can stretch further (not only physically!)
Reflexology - The feet are an intricate map of the whole body and by subtle manipulation can be very effective in harmonizing mind/body /spirit.
Chi Nei Tsang - Developed by the White Cloud Taoist monks in Ancient China, Chi Nei Tsang (CNT) integrates the physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual aspects of our being. It is a profound treatment enabling detoxification, improving elimination and stimulating lymphatic and circulatory systems. CNT helps to correct postural problems resulting from visceral imbalances. It can be particularly beneficial for many digestive issues. As a harmonizing treatment, CNT can be effective for diverse issues ranging from sleep disorders to many female health problems. For a CNT treatment the recipient should where loose comfortable clothing.
Abdominal Massage - By working mainly on the abdomen with gentle pressure, using applied Chi Kung, CNT works on the major organs to release the memories of emotional trauma and stress that remain stored in the cells of the body.
Chi Kung - Literally meaning energy exercise, Chi Kung is known as an internal martial art (to master the self). Teaching various forms including Eight Brocades, Shibashi Taiji Chi Kung, Universal Healing Tao practices, Meditation and deep relaxation techniques.
Shiatsu Natural Facelift - A wonderfully relaxing and rejuvenating face and neck massage, unravelling tension from the face with connective tissue work, muscle release, lymphatic drainage and acupressure points on face and body, using Neal’s Yard Remedies oils, serum and moisturisers. Great for a one-off session to revitalize, or a course of treatments for longer lasting effects.
