CLINICAL MASSAGE THERAPY
Massage therapy is a powerful tool in the process of helping people out of pain. Most pain problems originate from patterns of use that cause imbalances in our structure, putting strain on certain areas while others become overstretched. My treatments are deep and anatomically based, working directly with the muscles and tissues of problem areas and unwinding the string of tension back to the root cause of the issue.
Massage therapy is most effective with a course of 3-6 sessions. Reflexology, deep tissue massage and aromatherapy can all be effective as one-off sessions, for pleasure or relaxation or as occasional maintenance aids.
I use yoga asana to teach body awareness, and to help students bring balance to the whole body. My teaching style has influences from Ashtanga, Iyengar, Classical Hatha and the ideas and approaches of many individual bodyworkers. My classes are often athletic and challenging but always within my students’ capabilities. I pay close attention to alignment and depth and encourage softness and stability in practice. My intention is to help people feel good in their bodies, to notice where they are blocked and what helps to unblock them, to feel all-round stronger and more energised, and to connect with the sensations they experience. With time and practice, students will notice a distinct improvement in strength, tone and flexibility.
My yoga teaching follows a 12 year journey of self-practice and study that has taken me all over the world. I have trained extensively in the UK, India and Thailand and taught in Nepal, Thailand, Laos and Vietnam.
I offer private and group sessions for adults of all ages and abilities.
