MY TREATMENTS:Apart from one to one Moving Stretch sessions she also offers cupping therapy. Cupping is a very traditional form of manual therapy that is finding a new lease of life in view of the recent research on the fascial system.
Acupuncturist and Naturopath
Acupuncture is a Traditional Chinese MedicineIt is based on the concept that your qi, or energy, circulates the body via channels or meridians (12 primary and 8 secondary). 'Good health' is when our qi is strong and flowing smoothly. TCM always aims to treat the cause and not just the symptoms.
MY TREATMENTS:Acupuncture has the potential to help a wide range of conditions because it works holistically with your qi, or energy, so that your body can heal itself. People often visit an acupuncturist for pain (chronic and acute), hormonal issues (PMS, infertility, period irregularities), digestive issues and during times of emotional difficulty (stress, anxiety, grief).
Multi-styles, inc Indian Head // Deep TissueI always felt massage belonged to a world I wasn't part of or didn't understand until I had a cathartic massage in 2014. I then had the privilege of training in Full Body Swedish Massage with Yvonne Potter in 2016.
MY TREATMENTS:I am qualified in 6 different massage styles so can offer you Indian Head massage, Seated Acupressure Point massage, Thai Foot massage, Face Rejuvenation Massage, Full Body Swedish Massage, and Deep Tissue Massage. You can request Lomi Lomi techniques to be included in your massage too. I ran Salt Of The Earth Massage from my flat from Jan 2017-Feb 2019 before moving to Bristol.
Holistic Swedish MassageI am fully insured and qualified to VCTC standard in Deep Tissue and Swedish massage by the excellent award winning Wiltshire School of Beauty and Holistic Therapy in Swindon. In addition, I have completed various training courses in a Thai massage school in South Africa plus some Thai yoga massage workshops in the UK. I have been practicing for several years, mostly here at the Adona Centre. Over my life, I have been involved in a variety of sports; competing in triathlon, teaching swimming and participating in hockey, running, cycling, yoga and more. That experience has helped my knowledge of the dynamic and active body.
MY TREATMENTS:I specialise in deep tissue techniques to work on those sore muscles. Most people keep tension in their upper back and shoulders which really benefit from specific deep tissue work. However I can use Swedish and Thai yoga techniques to give a more relaxing or dynamic treatment. If desired, I finish with a very relaxing head and face massage. I use a heated massage table for your comfort here at the wonderful private treatment room. All treatments start with a consultation so the massage can be tailored to your specific needs.
