Job Title:

Holistic Massage | Fascia Bodywork | Craniosacral Therapy

My passion lies in creating a nourishing space to provide guidance towards health and balance. I believe the body had an innate capacity to heal and when we create time and space for ourselves to feel settled and safe in our body we can witness our bodies be guided by its own wisdom.

I started my bodywork journey at a retreat centre in New Zealand in 2016 where I learnt many different styles of massage from Swedish, Balinese and therapeutic massage. My love grew for exploring the mysteries of the human body and how to work with each client intuitively became an integral part of my work.

In 2019 I started training in Craniosacral therapy and felt a deep affinity with this work. Craniosacral therapy is a gentle touch hands-on therapy, which allows the body’s innate healing capacity to regain its natural balance. It calms the nervous system and helps relieve restrictions in the body promoting more space and energy flow. Throughout the treatment I create a calm and settled space to allow and encourage self-healing. As the body starts to respond often people feel a deep sense of relaxation that allows the nervous system to regain balance and harmony offering the capacity for deep healing from many different ailments. I will be graduated in June 2014 and able to offer full hour treatments,

I have been deepening my studies and body listening skills in the world of Fascia (connective tissue of the body). There are many links in the roots of Fascia and Craniosacral therapy so this work has a similar feel and approach in that the physical, emotional and mental health are all intrinsically linked. Everything we experience from as far back as our embryological beginnings is held in our fascia, every injury, stress, overwhelm is imprinted in our physiology.

Everything we experience from as far back as our embryological beginnings is held in our fascia, every injury, stress, overwhelm is imprinted in our physiology. This creates holding patterns and restrictions within our fascia, which can compromise function, cause further stress, anxiety and pain. Through my work I can offer the opportunity for this to change. Offering space and ease to the body and mind through meeting each individual client where they are at and using specific fascia techniques.


There is a lovely relaxing feel at Ola and Claire and Elisha have done a fantastic job in getting my neck sorted. My treatment isn’t even complete and everything is already feeling much less achey and more free. I feel more balanced generally and can really see the value so will definitely be checking in every so often for a little top up!
