Bodywork & Complementary Therapies

by Samantha James

My massage style combines all of my skills and learning, providing a unique treatment tailored to your individual needs. I use both an empathetic and intuitive approach as well as thorough structural assessment tools.

Each massage will be different depending on the ever-changing needs of your body and each session incorporates nurturing deep tissue work that treats structural issues and muscle tension. I use many techniques such as fascial release, soft tissue release, lymphatic drainage and stimulation, joint mobilisations as well as working with the nervous system and acupressure points to enable positive change in both body tension and emotional well-being.
