SWEDISH MASSAGE, STRUCTURAL THERAPY, SHIATSU
‘I aim to provide the conditions in which healing and growth can occur, according to each patient’s specific journey’.
With a background in Ballet, Sara has been practicing massage for over 10 years. She has experienced herself a wide range of body and psychotherapy techniques as well as training in Swedish massage, Shiatsu and Structural therapy. Sara works with Family Constellations on a one-to-one basis.
Sara incorporates Swedish massage with Shiatsu in her treatments. Swedish massage is an oil massage using fluid rhythmic strokes to release and relax the muscles. Shiatsu uses gentle pressure and manipulation to improve the body’s energy flow according to the principles of Chinese medicine. Sara also offers Structural Therapy, which is a set protocol of 10 treatments. The first treatment can be experienced as a taster session.
Sara uses a gentle touch during her treatments. Despite this gentle approach, the session is a deep one, working at the interface between the physical and emotional body.
I believe that healing is a process of exploration and development, and that it is innate to all of us. As a result, I tend to have an intuitive and non-judgemental approach and to encourage feedback and interactivity during and after the session.
I trained in Puro Shiatsu which is directly derived from the Namikoshi style, currently practiced and recognized as an official form of medicine in Japan.
Shiatsu is a Japanese bodytherapy, taking its roots in traditional Chinese medicine. The practitioner uses pressure, touch and manipulation in order to support and strengthens the body’s natural ability to heal and balance itself. As a holistic technique, shiatsu can impact all aspects of the being, may it be physical, emotional, psychological or other.
A session can be deeply relaxing or invigorating, depending on the needs and state of the receiver. The receiver remains fully clothed during the session.
As a student, practitioner, and teacher of thai massage, Daniel’s aim is to be co-create an environment for growth, learning, and exploration. Within this environment – safety, vulnerability, and truth can be uncovered and played with.
While thai massage is a physical practice on the surface, Daniel’s practice of this work intertwines other aspects such as emotions, thoughts, beliefs, and spirituality that affect human behaviour and health.
Originally from the DC area, Daniel teaches internationally and is currently based in London.

TRADITIONAL THAI MASSAGE & CHI NEI TSANG
My first contact with bodywork was being healed of severe back pain in Glastonbury festival in 1992. My curiosity was tweaked, so I studied Aromatherapy and Holistic massage in 1992, followed by Thai Massage in 1995. I have returned annually to Chiang Mai since that first trip, studying for longer periods as an apprentice to Masters; going deeper with the techniques and feeling the energy of the body, and energy blocks.
My study of yoga and qi gong over the last 20 years has deepened my insight into Thai Massage and the energetic body. In the last few years, I have concentrated on abdominal work with the Chinese abdominal massage of Chi Nei Tsang, which is a very powerful tool which remove the emotional energy blocks causing dis-ease in the body.
Paul has practiced professionally in clinics, resorts and Yoga Retreats in UK, Spain, India, Thailand & New Zealand over the past 23 years.

Reiki works on the premise that ‘life force energy’ (chi or qi) flows through all living things. If this energy becomes unbalanced, low or blocked, people can become stressed and unwell. The reiki energy which I channel during a session naturally goes to where it is most needed. It lifts the load, unblocks the river of your body’s inner energy highways, so that the flow of natural life force can move freely again. Your natural self heals itself, back to harmony, balance and peace.
I was introduced to the power of healing very early in my life after being involved in a car accident as a teenager and a reiki healing session from a friend had a huge impact on my healing. I started on a path to explore alternative healing therapies and in 2006 I studied and qualified as a Holistic Massage therapist and completed the First Degree of Reiki, in the Usui System of Natural Healing, where I really did see the light!!
My life has taken many directions, and this journey has lead me back to my true calling: to facilitate healing. Reiki gives me the tools not only to heal myself, but also to help others connect to their inner selves, Mother Earth and the Universal Energy. I have continued my training, refreshing the First Degree and completing Second Degree Reiki.
Showing love and care for our minds, bodies and spirits is the greatest gift we can give, to ourselves and to others. I invite you to come and relax, lay down on a massage couch and receive the lift you’re looking for and get your positive energy flowing freely again. OM
