Massage is almost as old as time, even Julius Caesar (100-44bc) had himself pinched all over the body for his pleuralgia daily.
Massage therapy is a prime example of communication on a non-verbal level. The way we touch others triggers a physical sensation as well as an emotional response. We all have the need to be touched, nurtured and pampered and made to feel cared for. Massage eases both physical and mental tension. As we become calm, peaceful and subdued we can make important decisions that are positive and unbiased.
Physically massage encourages our body to heal itself and become balanced in this hectic and often unforgiving world. There are many benefits to massage therapy which includes keeping skin healthy and elastic, cleanses the toxins through the lymph glands, helps with sports injuries and tension in the muscles.
“The physician must be experienced in many things, but assuredly in rubbing…for rubbing can bind a joint that is loose and, and loosen a joint that is too rigid.” Hippocrates, 5th century BC
I am a certified holistic massage therapist through Healing Hands International Massage Academy. I qualified in 2017 and happy to be joining the Vertebrae Chiropractic and Wellness Centre. I am happily married to my darling husband Stephen for 5 years and hoping to start a family soon.
I am passionate about helping people heal from within. I regard each patient as a whole, rather than an illness to be defeated. I believe in nurturing, rather than battling against the body. To date, I am qualified in holistic massage Therapy which includes lymph drainage, deep tissue, and Swedish massage. I will also be broadening my knowledge with hot stone therapy, sports massage and aromatherapy in the near future.
My Holistic Services are as follows
