“Life takes it out of you : Massage puts it back!” – Claire Maxwell-Hudson
I am a JING therapist trained in both Advanced Clinical Massage Therapy, Advanced Myofascial Release, and Hot Stones massage. I use a range of techniques and holistic tools, with a focus on fascial and energy-based therapy.
Massage therapy provides relaxation and relief from stress tension, as well as treating chronic pain by reducing muscular-skeletal discomfort, injury and disfunction. Facilitating the body’s own natural healing process, massage therapy seeks to improve, restore and maintain muscular strength, range of movement and flexibility.
Alongside being a fully trained and experienced massage therapist, I have worked in the 3rd sector for many years, supporting people experiencing trauma, grief and loss. I am also trained in counselling skills. I have a background in Psychology and have always had an interest in the somatic mind-body connection.
I bring all this experience and exploration to my massage therapy as Embodied Touch; working in an intuitive, empathic and trauma-informed way.
