Massage and Bodywork

I have been working as a Complementary Therapist for 8 years. Since I was a child I have always felt a deep infinity with nature which sparked my interest in Holistic Therapies. I look to natural forms of healing as way of treating mind, body and spirit , which with all the day to day stresses of modern life can become out of balance, creating tension and illness , both physically and mentally in ourselves.
I am trained in a wide range of therapies such as Aromatherapy, Reflexology, Deep Tissue Massage, Indian Head Massage, Hot Stone Massage and  Seated Acupressure as well as Spa treatments such as Scrubs , Body Wraps and Facials.
Many of these therapies originated in the Far East thousands of years ago and their roots can be found in Ayurvedic and  Chinese traditions. They treat the person as a whole rather than the isolated symptoms. Massage and reflexology not only relax the body and mind, but boost the immune system, release natural endorphins that can combat depression and anxiety, aid lymphatic drainage and blood circulation, tone the muscles, and release blockages in the energy channels  resulting in increased vitality and energy.
I believe the more we listen to our body’s messages the more it responds with increased health and vitality. We all deserve a bit of time out for ourselves to relax, switch off and recuperate in an environment where we can feel tranquil and safe. Holistic Therapies are to me a stepping stone on the pathway to self love, self awareness and spiritual development, where the needs of our body , mind and spirit are nurtured as a whole.

Integrative (about 1.5 hours): very popular and truly holistic, this session includes a full-body check-in and a multi-approach, full-body, flowing Esalen massage.  Plenty of time to focus on specific areas and integrate all into a complete whole – a bespoke, spontaneous, multiple-modality, eclectic, and explorative, bodywork experience.

Deep Integration (2 hours): this session is for all lovers and connoisseurs of massage and bodywork.  Plenty of time for including therapies such as deep lymphatic drainage, craniosacral work, energy balancing, and more.  Lots of time to enter timelessness – therapeutic and deeply integrative.

Carla HanreckI started studying Shiatsu in 1997. At the time I was working in a charity in London. Shiatsu gradually came to become the new direction for my life. In 2004 we moved from London to Frome, Somerset.

I then added the Bowen Technique and Thai Foot Massage to my skills.

As of March 2013 I completed the first year of Donna Eden’s Energy Medicine training, which focuses on how we can adapt our systems to meet the new stresses – be it chemical, emotional, physical or spiritual  – that we have never met  before in our evolution.

I trained at the well-respected Bristol School of Shiatsu and am a certified member of The Shiatsu Society.

My personal experience of this form of bodywork is a profound sense of ‘coming home’ both physically and emotionally.  I believe our fears and anxieties, hopes and dreams, can be best explored from a place of peace and ease in the body.

Leaving mental clutter behind and relaxing in to our physical being can allow for the calm, wise and intuitive core of ourselves to come forward.  From this grounded place we are more able to create meaningful, connected and fulfilling lives.

Shiatsu can help with a wide range of health problems including all kinds of aches and pains, insomnia, digestive, respiratory and circulatory problems, fatigue, as well as many kinds of emotional and mental problems such as anxiety, stress, tension and depression. It incorporates the use of meridians and acupressure points from Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM), along with the practitioner’s skilled intuition and sensitivity.

“Central to my approach is a warm, nurturing touch rooted in a sensitive and responsive connection between us.  Although every client is unique there are universal human needs which I am attuned to throughout the treatment.
The Siddha Marmani Massage (Marma Point Massage) is a relaxing remedy rarely found outside of India; due, in part, to the protected Siddha lineage it hails from. The Siddha System is the oldest traditional treatment system in the world and deeply guarded. I hold my training in great esteem and feel honoured to have learnt this practice under an indian teacher who worked for many years to gain the respect and trust of her master-teacher so that she too could share this powerful treatment with her students. Each body contains 107 ‘marma points’ and the systematic stimulation of each; interspersed with varied flowing strokes can facilitate and accelerate the systems natural healing capabilities.
Alongside and sometimes combined with reiki energy and the specialised Indian head; neck and upper back massage, my offering is balancing, thorough and deep and addresses all manner of weaknesses, ailments, discomforts and emotional-needs. If you want to try something different; you won’t look back. One client described the treatment as “like a tune-up” ”.

Information for new clients for Marmani Massage 2016

I gained a special interest in holistic health, wellness and natural beauty on my travels around the world. Having worked in the fashion industry for many years and still modelling well into my fifties -I have had a vested interest in how to look and feel ones best totally naturally!

I am trained in Reiki, Cranio-Sacral Therapy , Reflexologist AOR and specialise in maternity treatments often combining aromatherapy, massage and reflexology. Rejuvanessence and Facial Energy Release- face therapy. Qualified in Advanced Massage in 1990 and became an IFPA registered Aromatherapist and Rejuvanessence® practitioner in 1991.

My treatments often draw on a mélange of all these techniques with a strong holistic lean; I offer advice on how to optimise health naturally with life- style and supplements suggestions whilst complementing any conventional medical treatment. In a busy and often stressful world I believe that treatments can restore and revive the person, as well as offering support whilst going through a stressful time, recovering from illness, low energy or grief. Treatments can help to release pent up stress and tension to help you regain balance.

I have run many practitioner trainings since 2004 /2013 for The International Institute of Rejuvanessence and now run practitioner trainings in Facial Energy Release-face therapy.

Facial Energy Release – face therapy

Anna’s passion for complementary therapies started when she received a short reflexology session, which helped to release pain that she had.

She has been constantly upgrading her knowledge and skills by attending reflexology, massage and healing workshops.

She has been supporting different types of people, specializing in dealing with stress and stress related conditions and also supporting people that face emotional challenges.

Holistic Massage (sessions adapted to the needs of my clients).

Includes – mobilisation, deep tissue, trigger point, remedial, pre and post natal, lymphatic drainage and deep relaxation.

I qualified in 2010 with the world renowned Bristol School of Massage and Bodywork- under the tutelage of Andy Fagg. The extensive training taught me the power of massage. 

I strongly believe that massage and body work is essential to health and wellbeing – to put you back into your body and create awareness of posture, health issues, support injury or reduce stress and reconnect with self.

I am particularly interested in the ability of massage and touch techniques to reduce stress and support recovery with mental health issues- in particular pre and post natal (both parents welcome). 

My future interest is with remedial and I am looking to complete the BCMB training in sports massage shortly.  One of my favourite parts of my training was learning about the functions of the body, the nervous system and pathologies.  It gives me enormous pleasure to give gentle post massage advice with posture, exercise and refer to appropriate resources for help and guidance.

I offer ‘Holistic’ massage which simple means ‘whole person’ approach. So I will always include  a short consultation during the first appointment in general health and well-being and adapt the session accordingly. 

My client list contains children (although I would not see children under 16 in my general practice) as well as the elderly with complex health issues. I welcome people from all walks of life and will happily discuss concession fees with those who are vulnerable or struggle to afford the sessions.

I grew up in the North East of Scotland in a beautiful forest, and was immersed in plants from a young age. If I had a sore throat my mother would send me to the garden to pick herbs to make a gargle.  She took me to massage workshops when I was five, and I did my first degree in Reiki when I was eight. These experiences influenced me from a young age and have been deep in my heart.

I travelled to Thailand to learn Thai Yoga Massage and trained in a variety of techniques including Thai Yoga Massage, Thai Table Massage, Thai Foot Massage, Thai Herbal Ball Massage and Tok Sen, an ancient technique taught in the temples by monks. I am also trained to teach Thai Massage. We worked with boys at a youth offenders borstal, and we worked with mentally and physically disabled, and Elderly patients, in care homes.

Thai Yoga Massage is like a beautifully choreographed dance that invokes the deepest of peace. It is an ancient art which has been practiced for over 2,500 years. It involves a symbiosis of acupressure and stretching techniques, sometimes referred to as ‘lazy yoga’. Thai Massage works along the energy lines, (called Sen lines) in the body. These lines are correlated with Chinese Qi meridians.

Swedish Massage is designed to soothe, relax and relieve the body and the mind. It eases stress and tension with a variety of techniques such as effleurage, petrissage and tapotement.

Deep Tissue Massage uses firm pressure and slow strokes to work deeper into the layers of muscle and soft tissue. The nature of Deep Tissue Massage means that it is really effective in treating chronic conditions. The pressure, stripping and friction techniques break down knots and lactic acid crystals and improve circulation to bring relief and relaxation.

Herbal Medicine is also referred to as phytomedicine, and is a tradition that involves using plants for medicinal purposes. Different parts of the plants can be used to make medicines, including the leaves, flowers, berries, bark, roots and seeds.  A Qualified Medical Herbalist has a BSc or equivalent in Herbal Medicine, has studied orthodox medicine as well as plant medicine, and is trained in the same diagnostic skills as a GP.

I have been practicing Herbal Medicine and bodywork for five years, and I have worked in a variety of settings, including Herbal First Aid (and E.M.R – Emergency Medical Responder) at festivals. This has given me a lot of experience working with both acute and chronic complaints.

I have experience in a variety of techniques and often blend the different styles, tailoring the treatment to the individual needs of the client. The most popular treatment is a synergy of styles such as Swedish to warm and soften the muscles, DTM to release deep tension and lactic acid crystals and Thai stretches to clear, open and realign the body.  I often use Herbal Medicine to complement body work treatments, such as calming teas and healing balms.  I combine gentleness and care with strength and presence to provide the perfect treatment.

I use herbs, hands and heart, working in harmony, to empower and inspire people to health and vitality for themselves, and for the world.

I’m passionate about many forms of alternative health and complementary medicine, but holistic massage therapy is my chosen path of expertise. I started out on a completely different path in life, studying politics and economics up to Master’s level at the London School of Economics. After spending a few years working for some well-known international organisations, I took the decision to embark on a career change to pursue my passions of holistic healing and organic living.

After gaining some experience in these areas during my travels around the world, I returned home and studied to MTI level 4 (CertHE) in Holistic Massage Therapy under a master Osteopath and Massage Therapist. This course also included a solid grounding in Anatomy, Physiology and Pathology, so if you suffer from a chronic musculoskeletal or immune disorder, I’ll approach your needs as an individual. However, should you simply need a relaxing massage, you will be in good hands too!

I trained at The College of Classical Massage (based in Brighton) under college Principle Michael Gibbons.  I regularly assist the Principal of CCM in teaching the new Holistic Massage Diploma students encompassing all areas of massage technique, good posture and general student support.

I have been hugely influenced by my Grandfather who initially trained in medicine, but embraced a new career in complementary medicine in his 50s. He had a successful Osteopathy, Acupuncture & Homoeopathy practice. He treated the whole family and encouraged me to pursue massage, regularly inviting me to observe him at work.

I massaged all my children when they were babies and now they are teenagers who enjoy a variety of sports including Kickboxing, Boxing, Rugby, Basketball and sedentary gaming, they continue to benefit from my skills!!

Meeting a new client, I observe closely individual posture and gait and after a full consultation to gain a medical history and knowledge on any repetitive physical actions they may be doing to adversely affect their body’s balance, I design a bespoke treatment to suit their needs.
I never tire of the joy I feel witnessing the “before & after” effect, the profound difference the power of touch can have!

My regular clients include Teachers, Nurses, Musicians, Artists, Chefs, Physiotherapists, Midwives, Hairdressers, Yoga teachers, Builders, Camera men, Prison Officers, Gardeners, Actors, children and other Therapists.

Madeleine started working in London as a full time massage therapist in 2001. Her work has mainly been as a remedial massage therapist, with a fair amount of on -site chair work and some Thai massage. She has had a wide range of experience treating musicians, corporate workers, dancers, horse riders and anyone walking through the door. Since this time, she has continued to educate herself in different therapeutic modalities, in the quest to effectively treat a wide variety of injuries and physical issues.

In the last couple of years, her focus has changed to Structural Integration (alias Rolfing) and yoga therapy. The structural changes addressing old injuries and vocational postures brought about by the hands on fascial work in a structural integration treatment, followed by a personalised yoga practise bring about startling and completely satisfactory results. Many are unaware of the potential to bring the body back into a better alignment, with the freedom in movement and from aches and pain that accompanies this. Seeing one’s posture return to what it was brings a new lease of life.

Formerly a professional classical musician, her interest in body work and natural health began whilst writing her dissertation on Stress and Relaxation, for her BSc in Human Sciences, University College London. She is a keen traveller and has lived and worked in Europe, S-E Asia and Africa, and spent long periods in India.
