Do you have random aches and pains that you've failed to find relief from?
You've tried various treatments but the discomfort keeps returning?
You had an injury and have been told you'll never be free of the problem?
Physical issues are starting to mount up and you don't know what to do?
There are several factors that need to be addressed when treating chronic or acute conditions -
the condition of relevant muscles
the muscle attachments to the bones
the state of the surrounding lymphatics
your current energetic state
So as well as the necessary anatomical knowledge to deal with the above, there can be other factors, relating to what we can't see ... the energy of emotions. As we move through life we experience various mental and physical traumas that we automatically react to. Our reactions create emotions that can be overwhelming so we suppress and store them in the body in order to avoid feeling them.
The body is largely self-correcting, so it takes continuous tension to hold these emotions within the tissues; the longer this continues the more energy backs up and the body, being less able to self-correct, has less available energy.
Such blocks inhibit the natural flow of energy through the meridians of the body causing an array of symptoms as diverse as hip or gall bladder pain, even arrhythmia; this scenario may last for years and solutions can be evasive. Its my job to free up those blockages and get the energy moving again, relieving pressure and pain, increasing the range of movement.
My 27 years of experience as a bodyworker provide
Structural & Deep Lymphatic massage
Energy - rebalancing and releasing old energy patterns
Healing - physical and spiritual
My work is effective for treating structural issues like frozen shoulder, back pain or sciatica, as well as lymphatic problems like lipoedema or the effects of cellulitis.It is NOT the same as a generalised massage where the masseuse has little anatomical knowledge and is merely soothing the client for a few hours. These treatments have a lasting effect.
I act as a conduit that facilitates the release of tension and trauma from within your body, relieving pain (somatic release). These days, more people seem to present with problems that are rooted in energetic blockages with complaints as diverse as painful sinuses or persistent sciatic pain that manipulation has failed to alleviate.
Each treatment is guided by the responses of your body on the day, so where there is resistance, we wait until you are ready to release whatever it is you’ve held onto. Your body is never pushed beyond what it's ready to accommodate.
Timewise, and to get the best value, first-time sessions are best at 1.5 to 2 hours. Most issues can be covered thoroughly in that time and the body gets the chance to work as a whole again. You will be advised of necessary exercises or self-maintenance techniques at the time.
