My work is rooted in the powerful NO HANDS® approach to Massage. This is essentially a new way of doing Swedish Massage which allows me to work safely and effectively, using a variety of styles, depths and speeds to meet your individual needs.
To get the most benefit from your massage, it is worth spending a few minutes thinking about how you would like to feel at the end, what outcomes you would like from the treatment. Don't worry if you find this difficult, it is my job to help you get this clear in your mind at the start of the session and I am here to answer any questions you may have.
How does it work?
If you are new to NO HANDS®, you may be wondering how it works. In fact the hands are involved in providing light, soothing strokes whilst the deeper strokes are carried out using the soft surfaces of the forearms, combined with the power of gravity. This makes for a very pleasant, deep and flowing massage where tensions just melt away. The controlled use of depth, speed and style means that every massage can be tailored to you, from deep tissue massage to light nurturing touch.
Why book a NO HANDS® Massage?
Deep and sustained touch can utterly transform your life. Structural imbalances can be put right without you even noticing. Areas that you didn't even know were tense can be loosened. Like a tight piece of clothing that has been shrunk, your whole musculature can be pleasurably stretched and any restrictions released. Massage can reconnect the body and mind, while connecting you with the deep self-healing potential within. Through reconnecting and rebalancing, touch can also release blocked energy, and when exhaustion is the issue, NO HANDS Massage can help restore you more powerfully and deeply than any harmful stimulant.
As our body changes, so too do our thoughts, our emotions and our whole connection with ourselves. In this respect, Massage is probably the most total therapy available. With the support of powerful touch anything is possible...
Where did it come from?
NO HANDS Massage was founded by UK therapist, Gerry Pyves. He conceived and developed this approach over many years of clinical practice and continues to refine it today. The NO HANDS® trademark means that you are assured of the high standard of my professional training and ongoing development with the NO HANDS® Massage Association.
