Massage and Bodywork

The benefits of massage have been known and talked about for hundreds, if not thousands of years.

Regular massage can reduce stress, calm and soothe.

It helps relieve muscular tension and general aches and pains.

It stabilises heart-rate and blood pressure.

It improves circulation of the blood and its vital nutrients.

It works as a detox.

It promotes feelings of well being and connectedness

It stimulates the release of endorphins (the feel-good, pain relieving chemicals).

It helps you become more present, more aware of being in your body. And it can help us remember that this is a wonderful thing!

Above all, It feels wonderful to be touched and nurtured by therapeutic hands.

I love giving and receiving massage. I rate it as one of the most profoundly healing and pleasing therapies there is, and I use it in conjunction with Somatic Experiencing and Cranial work or as a complete modality on its own.
