Yoga & Massage
Are you in pain, either physical or mental?
If you are suffering from pain, discomfort or general tension, I can help. You may be recovering from a recent injury or trying to solve long term back pain. Either way, I am both an experienced and qualified massage therapist and Yoga teacher whose aim is to get you back doing what you love as soon as possible.
I use Ayurvedic deep tissue massage and Yin Yoga to treat physical injury and therapy to decrease stress. Stress is the body’s way of responding to life’s physical and emotional demands.
How does Yin Yoga help to decrease stress?
Yin Yoga helps to reduce stress by lowering your heart rate, promoting relaxation, relaxing muscles, releasing endorphins and stimulating the release of feel-good hormones. It allows us to work the deeper “yin” tissues of our ligaments, joints, deep fascial networks and even our bones. All tissues need exercising to achieve optimal health and vitality, thereby relieving stress levels and increasing calmness and relaxation.

How does massage help to decrease stress?
Massage relaxes muscles by increasing body temperature and blood circulation, reducing stress by relaxing muscles and soft tissues in the body. The increase of temperature is stimulated by friction against the skin, delivering more blood to the muscles, removing waste products, relieving tension, and creating a feeling of calmness and relaxation.

What is Ayurvedic deep tissue massage?
Originating from India, Ayurvedic Deep Tissue Massage is a deeply relaxing and stress relieving massage. Deep, slow strokes are given with the fingers, knuckles, fists, forearms and elbows, allowing the therapist to go much deeper into the muscles of the receiver than massages performed with the hands only.
Ayurvedic deep tissue massage is a type of remedial massage that focuses on realigning the deeper layers of muscle and connective tissue. This approach is hugely beneficial for areas of the body suffering from chronically tense and contracted muscles, which can often happen after a prolonged problem is left untreated or if you suffer an injury or accident. Muscular aches and pains can arise from all sorts of issues, but here are the main reasons you might need a deep tissue massage.
How does Ayurvedic deep tissue massage work?
Ayurvedic Deep tissue massage breaks down deep adhesions (painful, rigid tissue) in affected muscles, ligaments, and tendons. These adhesions cause a restriction of blood flow through the muscle, creating pain, inflammation and limitations in movement. To alleviate this, I apply pressure and friction across the muscle’s grain to physically break down the adhesions to relieve pain and restore your range of movement.
