I have an appreciation of engaged manual work which can mean very deep pressure to as light as necessary to effect an optimal response.
After discussion with you and we devise a plan for the session, the style may involve one therapy or a combination of modalities. Your preference always leads the work to ensure open communication and a comfortable approach.
I do a lot of therapeutic work but also love relaxation sessions.
Patients sometimes ask me to decide how best to resolve an issue with any combination of modalities. For example: I may add essential oils to the massage oil to elicit a better response and if something is stuck that my hands can't move I may use a cup or a few needles to get things happening.
Other times patients know exactly what they want such as a 100% shiatsu session or lymphatic flush. When a patient knows what they want it's the best approach for the job.
My aim is to listen to what you are looking for, carefully pay attention to your body’s unique feedback and thus allowing me to best deliver a tailored treatment to help restore your most optimal sense of well being.
"When you touch one thing with deep awareness,
you touch everything."
