25+ YEARS of helping wellington bodies feel good
HOW I LOVE TO WORK:
Intuitively, connecting with the individual needs of each person -finding out what YOU want. I specialise in deep tissue massage which releases tightness by freeing up the deeper layers of muscle and connective tissue, and also love to incorporate nurturing relaxing massage.
Understanding where the tension and pain are coming from, and unwinding the whole pattern, gives a more profound relaxation and longer lasting benefits.
Seeing people leave feeling freer, lighter, and completely relaxed is a wonderful thing. Each person is unique and I find after 25+ years my hands can feel where to go.
I'm interested in the whole person and everything that contributes to them feeling better, and in this sense sometimes the connection, conversation and exchange of ideas are almost as important as the massage.
