I chose the name Touching Well for my practice as it expresses my intention: respectful and nurturing touch to support clients in their journey called life.
I did my initial Massage training more than 25 years ago. I had discovered Massage and loved it right from the word go, both giving and receiving it. It was just like magic.
I also attended lots of other courses and groups, many related to bodywork, such as Postural Integration, Pulsing, Reichean bodywork, Gestalt, Feldenkrais and Lomi bodywork.
After the birth of my daughter, Sonja, in 1996, I studied Aromatherapy at the Long Eaton Skills Shop. Later I qualified in Seated Acupressure, a technique often used for massage at the work place. Already in my training I found it was a very efficient way for releasing upper body tension, while leaving the client focused and alert.
In 2001 I was introduced to NO HANDS® Massage and paid for the training course using my individual learning voucher - remember them? What a revelation!!! I took to this kind of Massage like a duck to water.
From this course onwards I was determined to build up my practice, so that everyone could experience this marvelous touch. It took a lot of hard work, training and expense and for the last decade (or so) I have been busy, sometimes very busy.
I have also trained in pregnancy and post natal massage and
Lymphatic Drainage. I had been thinking about training in Maya Abdominal
Therapy for about 8 years, until I finally took a deep breath (trying to forget the expense) and trained in this wonderful therapy (2013-2015). In Autumn 2010 I invested in Deep Oscialltion, which added
another dimension to oedema and massage treatments. In 2016 I trained in myofascial release, which offered a different dimention to treatments.
I love the varied nature of my work: pregnant mums; on-site work; fairly vigorous and also very gentle Massage; helping people with oedema. I think I have the best job in the world – people feel wonderful and I get paid for it.
I am enthusiastic about psychodramatic
with Susan Aaron, which is a dynamic combination of
Psychodrama and Shiatsu. I graduated from the advanced training in
autumn 2010, and I have been to my ongoing Grad-group. I love assisting on Introduction and Intermediate courses.
My practice is based on Carlton Hill in Nottingham.
