Hello, I’m delighted to be your Relaxation Massage Therapist here at HANDS from HEAVEN. Previously I’ve worked mostly in my own private practice but have also spent time as a Massage Therapist at a Day Spa and in Aged Care facilities.
Over the years my clientele has ranged in age from 6 to 101 years and has been quite diverse, including palliative care patients, elite sports professionals, clients living with disabilities, mental health patients, as well as those who need a massage to ease discomfort brought on by everyday activities like sitting at a computer for lengths of time, playing social sports, lifting heavy objects, and of course dealing with stress.
I really love that massage can help people reach a state of deep relaxation, which stimulates the natural restorative processes of the body to bring it back into balance. With the fast-paced lifestyles we experience today, it is very common to be in a constant state of fight-or-flight, which increases blood pressure and heart rate while slowing digestion. Inducing a state of deep relaxation has the opposite effect, reducing blood pressure and heart rate while stimulating digestion, allowing nutrients to be delivered to where they are needed for proper functioning of the body’s systems at cellular level.
I believe massage plays an important role in assisting people to achieve and maintain better health and well-being so that they can live their lives in limitless possibility. It never ceases to amaze me that this is what I do for my clients every day!
