Sensation-based bodywork for wellbeing, rehabilitation and fitness.
Integrated bodywork combines massage techniques, gentle mobilisation, subtle listening and awareness with highly effective forms of movement repatterning to meet the specific needs of each client.
Explore the richness of the relationship between body, mind, movement and touch through increased awareness.
This is a non-invasive clothed treatment that recognises that health is inherent in the body. Through this gentle touch and a listening approach it can be a subtle and profound healing form. The work assists the body in doing what it needs to do in its ongoing search for balance.
This treatment can release muscular tension, improve circulation (blood and lymph) and nerve function, and help improve joint mobility. It works at a physical level, alongside a listening and nurturing touch, to meet you at an emotional level and help bring balance to your body and mind.
These sessions aim to attend to the cause of a particular issue rather than simply focusing in on a particular symptom.
