Firstly I would like to answer a few common questions I get asked about No Hands Massage.
It is not Reiki or a non touch type of massage
I do use my hands to apply the oil and for gentle strokes
I use my forearms, thighs and knees which offer very deep and powerful massage strokes
No Hands is a “Gentle Giant” so although it is powerful it does not involve pain
You receive the treatment in your underwear and you are covered with a towel. The only area exposed is the area I am Working on at any given moment
I use oil to enable me to glide across your skin and make it a pleasurable experience for you.
I play music that compliments your treatment
Each treatment is tailored individually for each of my clients
I offer you a snack or some homemade chocolate after your treatment

My most popular treatment is the 4 Elements Massage so I thought I would share more about this powerful treatment in a series of blogs. Today I am focusing on The Element of Water.
4 Element Water Massage is a nurturing treatment that offers the gentleness of the flowing river to the unmistakable strength of the fast action rapids.
You can allow the water to release stuck emotions, ease muscle aches, pains and calm your mind. You can get lost in the rhythmic flow and relax into your treatment. If you are wanting more speed I can speed up the strokes with the Tai Chi style moves and you can ride the waves and experience the spirals of energy and release that will be created.
I use my own recipe massage oil that I blend it is delightfully rich and nourishing for the skin and has a heavenly scent of my carefully chosen aromatherapy oils.

I am feeling very motivated today. I have created a gorgeous no-meat sesame ball after being inspired by yesterdays dinner of raw falafel. I put some chilli, onions and garlic to marinade in some olive oil overnight. For lunch today I had a chilli salad with no-meat balls and avocado pear. I have had a busy few days and needed something filling and comforting. This hit the mark it was yummy! I am having a pear, pineapple and orange juice for dinner tonight. I have been busy on the computer today preparing my courses I will be teaching over the next ten weeks. I have three courses running for parents at local schools and one for a drug and alcohol drop in centre. They are Raising Hopes and Aspirations, Healthy Lifestyle, Tai Chi and Cooking on a budget.
I love my job and feel very honoured to work with diverse groups of learners. I learn something new on every course I teach about myself and others.
I have practised the art of Tai Chi for over 18 years.
I studied Tai Chi Chuan with the late Master Graham Horwood. Graham is internationally renowned and was an amazing teacher who was very dedicated to Tai Chi. Graham has written several books including Key to Health with Cures from West to East – A Complete Health Guide and Tai Chi Chuan and the Code Of Life. Graham was taught by Master Chu King Hung, third adopted son of Yang Shou Cheung. Yang Shou Cheung was the eldest son of Yang Cheng Fu. He spent 10 years practising and teaching with Master Chu, who informed Graham that he was the first of his students to understand the internal principles of Tai Chi.
Graham and I were in the local papers and Anglia news as one of our students was 107 years old.
I feel blessed to have taught Tai Chi and Qigong in the community with a wide variety of learners.
I also offer Public Speaking on The Yin Yang Philiosphy of Health.
I have been fortunate enough to share my knowledge by giving talks and advice regarding the Yin Yang Philiopshy across the Uk and Europe.
