Massage is the art and expression of therapeutic touch. I will always remember my first real massage experience with gratitude. I felt completely supported – held, nurtured and nourished. I had been unaware of how tight and tense my body was and massage became the catalyst for taking better care of myself.
Over the past 12 years I have studied how our human bodies’ communicate via and respond to therapeutic touch. Some clients respond positively to deep structural and fascial release work ; others soften through rhythmic, gentle glides to release stress.
I have accrued well over 10,000 clinical hours of massage experience and I still approach every treatment with a sense of fresh enquiry.
As well as extensive practical application I have a developed my appreciation of pathophysiology and the most effective techniques with which to treat musculoskeletal issues. I have completed many postgraduate massage courses and have been awarded the following massage qualifications:
BTEC level 5, VTCT, ITEC and FHT massage diplomas in abdominal sacral massage, aromatherapy, deep tissue massage, developmental baby massage, facial massage, Indian head massage, hot/cold stone massage, holistic massage, manual lymphatic drainage, pregnancy massage, Swedish massage, therapeutic massage and Thai massage. I have also studied clinical and medical massage, the myofascial body, postural assessment, trigger point therapy, kinesiology and energy medicine.
I integrate techniques developed from different massage styles and traditions and employ delicious aromatherapy oil blends to enhance your treatment and nurture the soul.
Massage can help with rehabilitation after injury, may effectively treat a wide range of musculoskeletal disorders, assist with stress related issues, ease emotional blockages, help you to reintegrate fully into your body, or simply be a very relaxing and pleasurable experience.
David and I had had a difficult year and we wondered what to do. Then we heard from a friend about the wonderful skills Natasha has. She is able to ‘know’ which oils (mixed by her) will be the best for each of us to enable us to relax and leave our daily problems outside the door. She also has the ability to listen to us and responds in a caring way which helps us to see a situation in a more positive way. We each have an hour and a half of relaxing massage which eases any muscle ‘knots’ and has a soothing effect, both mentally and physically. When we go back into the outside world we find ourselves feeling almost euphoric. Just amazing!
I cannot recommend her enough!
I suffer with stress and anxiety – in part as a result of work. I experienced my first ever massage with Natasha- I almost had to be escorted to the treatment but as soon as we began my consultation I was reassured. Natasha was warm, nurturing and caring. Her massage was so relaxing that I literally felt my stress easing from my body and mind. I continue with monthly treatments and use her blended oils in between. I cannot recommend her enough!
