"Nev's Thai massage is such a treat! I practiced Shiatsu for some years, and have received much bodywork over that time, becoming somewhat of a fussy individual! I found Nev's treatment wonderful, and his touch spot on. He certainly knows his stuff and I would recommend him to any of my friends."

Thai Massage

Thai Massage

Thai massage is a unique and potent clothed massage which variously combines massage techniques, acupressure, joint manipulations and stretches dependant on individual need. It's carried out on a futon mattress. Heating or cooling balms or oils and/or heated herbal compresses are often used to support the massage process . As well as being beneficial for aches and pains and misalignments, the deep relaxation induced by Thai massage can be deeply relieving, restful, and healing.

Yoga

Yoga

Yoga is an ancient yet living and evolving collection of practices linked to physical, mental and spiritual development. Its theory base includes ideas and principles relating to health, fitness, psychology and spirituality. Yoga recognises that health and being at ease with oneself is a multilayered process. My classes explore the main contemporary practices in yoga of asana (postures), pranayama (breathing practices), body centring and meditation as a creative means to bring ourselves to a place of calm and quiet. It is not complicated in one sense , but there is much to explore ! Appreciation of all that it has to offer takes time.

Philosophy, Spirituality and Meditation

Yoga is not a religion, but its origins as a collection of practices to explore the human condition developed in the context of Indian religious culture. There are at times significant parallels and connections with both Hinduism and Buddhism, but it doesn't exactly belong to either.

Reflexology

Reflexology

Reflexology has been practised for thousands of years, and has been shown to be deeply relaxing with a positive effect on many health issues and our sense of wellbeing. Reflexology is based on the idea that the feet represent a map of the body. Massaging congested, hard, blocked or tense parts of the feet can help improve the function of joints, organs, glands and other aspects of our anatomy and physiology distant from the feet, as well as supporting the function and circulation of the feet themselves.
