TRAINING AND QUALIFICATIONS:
I qualified in Holistic Massage (ITEC) in July 2003. Around the same time I saw a demonstration of NO HANDS Massage at a complementary health exhibition. I was deeply touched by the beauty and the power of this treatment; the focus on empowering the client, and the way music is used as part of the treatment (not just as background noise.) I immediately booked on all of the NO HANDS courses.
Once I started learning NO HANDS, I was even more impressed with the effectiveness of this approach to Massage - it feels absolutely wonderful, both to give and to receive! And I soon learned that each and every treatment is different - even better as I love variety! NO HANDS is like a dance between practitioner and client. Beautiful to watch; even better to do or feel!
I qualified as a NO HANDS Practitioner in May 2004; and continued to learn more about this 'Gentle Giant' of Touch. I passed 'the toughest Bodywork exam in the world' and became a NO HANDS Master Therapist in June 2006, and have continued to train with Gerry and Geraldine on the NO HANDS Mastery Programme for 8 years. All in all I have completed over 2500 hours of Massage training. There is always more to learn!
I am a senior member of the NO HANDS Massage Training Team.
Over the last four years I have trained in the field of bio-energetic medicine and I have recently started training in Nutritional Therapy to be able to further support my clients in creating balance and wellbeing.PHILOSOPHY:
I believe that regular Massage is absolutely essential for a healthy, happy and successful life. And in 10 years as a therapist I have not found a more powerful or effective treatment than NO HANDS. That is why I make sure I get my own regular NO HANDS treatments. To encourage you to experience the power of NO HANDS Massage, I have a very generous introductory offer for new clients which means you can book a treatment with a highly qualified and experienced therapist for the price a newly-qualified therapist would charge - and you receive a free copy of the world's first novel about Massage, too - so you can read all about what to expect in the treatment room - just ring to ask me for details. (Only available to first-time NO HANDS Massage clients; if you've already had a NO HANDS Massage before, you know what you are paying for, and that it is worth every penny!)SAFE TOUCH:
I believe that SAFE TOUCH should be available to everyone who needs it - even those who cannot afford to pay for regular Massage. For this reason I offer five sponsored 'Pay what you can afford' treatments a month to those who need some support. I am thinking here especially of people who have experienced 'unsafe' touch; e.g. abuse survivors, armed forces personnel or anyone who has experienced a traumatic event or who is going through a tough time - OR someone who is always giving to others and really deserves a treat but would never ask for one. Please note this is not psychotherapy; it is simply respectful and safe Massage. If you are interested in booking a sponsored treatment for yourself, or know anyone who you think could really do with a Massage but would never book one, (or even if you would like to sponsor a treatment for someone else) then email me via the 'Contact me' page, explaining why you think you/they qualify. Remember to leave your contact details so I can book you/them in! After the first treatment we will then decide on possible follow-up treatments.
