MASSAGE & BODYWORK
"We don't only carry the weight of our own stories in our body, we carry those of generations past.
It's time to unravel the unnecessary strain and come back to wholeness..." Emma
I work with advanced massage techniques from Swedish Massage and Sports Massage.
I also offer Bodywork which incorporates many techniques including; muscle testing, breathwork, intuitive massage, deep tissue massage, myofacial release, and movement. It helps to understand and initiate healing in our bodies and creates space for both physical and emotional release. I also combine energy work, reflexology and shamanic healing as appropriate.
These sessions can benefit everyone, helping to unwind physical and emotional tension.
When we carry too much from our past and our environment, our bodies respond. We can become withdrawn or highly reactive. Who we truly are becomes incased in tight bands of connective tissue. Massage and Bodywork gently tease open these tissues, providing freedom and the return of life force energy to our mind, emotions, skin, meridians, nerves, muscles, joints, organs and bones.
You can choose to recieve this work fully clothed and on a mat or with organic grapeseed oil, covered with towels and on a massage couch.
Modesty is always kept intact during oil massage as only the areas being worked on are exposed at any one time and the rest of the body is kept covered and warm with towels. This treatment uses a variety of light and deep pressure specifically designed to relax the muscles, providing relief from tension, numbness and pain. Other techniques are applied to really work out the tension, working on the deeper muscle fibres, loosening out the knots and preparing them for activity. This allows for a healthy flow of circulation, helping to restore damaged tissue and relieve muscular tension after exercise. If required, specific stretching techniques can also be incorporated to help increase the strength and flexibility of the muscles.

‘I had persistent pain under my right shoulder from years of dragging my computer mouse around. Emma’s deep tissue massage sorted it out and her insight and advice helps me keep it away.
Professional, knowledgeable and caring is how I would describe the treatment provided.’ Jim
