Every massage is unique. My interest lies in supporting the guest on a physical and energetic level through touch. Nevertheless, the use of voice, vibration of the vocal cords as well as conscious breathing exercises might be suggested and are essential to keep in touch and feedback with each other.
Deeply informed by the Feldenkrais method and dance, body scans, stretches and movements exercises can also be offered.
Each appointment will begin and end with a discussion to determine what could be the best way for me to support the guest.
For me, anatomy, body work, and movement belong to a field of knowledge that are lifelong processes of learning. My application of this knowledge remains flexible in order to address different needs and ways of supporting my guests. I therefore offers different variations of classic massages. A session might include: deep tissue massage, trigger point acupressure, stretches, shaking, supported movements to unlock joints and find a better range of movement, scanning meditation (in standing, sitting or laying)…
A safe space
I have experienced first hand in my dance education and career the pressure to conform and control the body. These experiences have not always been positive or inclusive spaces or philosophies. As a dancer, as a socialized female, the policing of the human body through normative ideas of beauty, movement or form has been a constant and painful experience.<br>I seek in my practice to facilitate people connecting to the bodies they inhabit and to give treatment in a space that fosters body positivity and is safe for all bodies regardless of race, form and gender.
