I am a certified massage therapist offering mobile massage services .
I specialise in two unique styles of massage – equilibrium massage and athletic massage – that combine different elements from Swedish massage, deep tissue massage, acupressure, and stretching massage (see below for more details). My philosophy is to give you personalised massage therapy to promote your overall physical and mental wellbeing based on your individual needs and preferences.
Equilibrium massage is my unique style of massage aimed at promoting inner equilibrium – equilibrium of both the body and mind. This style of massage combines elements from Swedish massage, acupressure, and deep tissue massage. I developed Equilibrium massage to promote the release of stress, muscle tension, and the overload on our body. This massage will help you feel more relaxed, energised, and focused. It will also help promote improved sleep, and body function through all the benefits of massage listed below.
Athletic massage is another unique style of massage that I have developed which combines elements from deep tissue massage, acupressure, and stretching massage. This massage style is aimed at the relief of muscle tension, tightness and pain associated with exercise and other physical activity. It improves circulation, helps the body to release toxins, and also helps to increase mobility, flexibility, and range of motion. Athletic massage is a good compliment to any type of strength-building or weight-bearing exercises (including weight lifting, high intensive interval training, squats, lunges, running, rowing, dance, etc.) to maximise your physical abilities and wellbeing.
Hot stone massage incorporates the use of hot stones to warm up the muscles so that they can be massaged deeper to allow for greater release of muscle tension. This is combined with my signature Equilibrium massage style.
Pregnancy massage I am certified in pregnancy and labour massage and offer it for women after their 12thweek of pregnancy. It is a modified Equilibrium-style massage with light to medium pressure, tailored for safety during pregnancy and to meet your individual needs and preferences.
The oil I use is 100% natural with no harsh chemical additives and is safe for sensitive skin and pregnancy and infant massage.

Swedish massage is a relaxing massage style that has many benefits including an enhanced feeling of well-being and increased balance in the overall flow of natural life energy through the body. It is also helpful in relieving muscle pain and tension.
Deep tissue massage applies a firmer pressure and specific techniques to reach into the deep layers of muscle and connective tissue. This method focuses on trigger points to release muscle tension and increase circulation in muscles, and is particularly useful in common problem areas such as back, neck, shoulders, hamstring and gluteus. This method of massage is good for relieving back pain, neck pain, and other muscle pain caused from tension or muscle knots. It is beneficial to people who spend a lot of time in the same position (such as computer work), or people do a lot of exercises, or anyone else with muscle tension (which is includes almost everyone.) It is also helpful in recovering from different types of injuries and for increasing mobility.
Acupressure is a technique that focuses on releasing tension throughout the body by applying pressure to specific trigger points.
Stretching massage uses different stretching techniques and positions, aided by the massage therapist, to achieve a deeper and more effective stretch than you could do on your own.
Certifications: I am certified in Swedish massage, deep tissue massage, acupressure massage, stretching massage, chair massage, and pregnancy & labour massage.
