“I believe massage is a positive form of healing considering the whole person. Every massage is different, every person is unique and their bodies also. From teaching yoga, I realise the importance of individual needs within the body and I like to use my intuition to create a session for the individual, remaining aware of the whole body. Massage can also help you to realise the subtle sensations in the deeper layers of your body.” ~ Debra Ridout
In the eastern world, massage is an intrinsic part of the culture. Babies and children are massaged and this continues into adulthood. Touch is healing, therapeutic, pain relieving and provides a grounding connection between mind, body and spirit.
Massage helps alleviate stress and allows the body to enter a rest and recovery mode. Once the body realises what true relaxation feels like the mind can recreate it before stress becomes damaging.

“The real purpose of giving massage is to foster more depth of feeling for one another in order to bring out the love that often lies beneath the pain of everyday suffering” ~ Robert Calvert
