I have worked as a massage therapist for many years now and I have developed my own style over that time. It has come from the training that I have done and also from my experience of both giving and receiving massage. I would describe it as therapeutic and holistic in that it can help with any aches and pains, particularly ones that have been going on for a long time. Also, I view the body and mind as intrinsically connected, so when I work with clients I may help them realise (through what I have noticed in their bodies) the way their mind is creating certain patterns. I am also interested in lifestyle and how that effects the tension and patterns in our bodies and I can help to advise on ways to counteract these effects. I am a very sensitive person and therefore tend to treat others with sensitivity and a relatively light touch. Though I may use more pressure towards the end of a treatment and for clients who particularly feel the need for more pressure, however, generally I am guided by how a body responds to my touch.
Of course everyone is different and for those of you who prefer a very aggressive massage I am probably not the right therapist for you! Many clients however, are surprised at how ‘deep’ their experience of my massages go in terms of their physical, mental and emotional well-being- for those with an open mind, a session with me can be relaxing and restorative.
