Swedish and Holistic Massage

Fridays 2 - 5pm

About the Therapy:

Swedish massage involves working on the soft tissue of the body, using four different types of massage strokes to relax the whole body.

Holistic massage is an individual treatment that is specifically tailored to each client, treating the whole person, taking into account not only their physical health but also their emotional and spiritual wellbeing.

Benefits of the Therapy:

Alleviates muscular tension and stiffness, and improves skin elasticity.
Reduces overall stress, anxiety and depression by releasing endorphins, the body's natural painkillers, giving that feel-good sensation.
Increases energy levels and promotes general relaxation.
Encourages better circulation and boosts the immune system by stimulating lymph flow, which helps to rid the body of toxins, waste and other unwanted materials.

About the Practitioner:

I have been a student and practitioner of Complementary therapies for many years. My emphasis is on integrating physical, emotional and spiritual wellbeing, also using crystals and semi-precious stones in my sessions when appropriate. My background is in Psychology, which I studied and practiced in my native Brazil, and in Art, which I continue to practice in my studio at home, regularly exhibiting in exhibitions throughout London
