Natasha has always been interested in the complexities of the human body, particularly that of movement and anatomy because of her years of dance training and physical performance. Massage seemed a logical path for her to take following her training as she understood the power of touch. She uses tactile cues to help clients learn about their own pro-preconception and delve deeper into understanding their own anatomy along with the natural rhythms of the body. Both highly enthusiastic and passionate about offering a sophisticated and compassionate package from assessment, delivery and rehabilitation.

This also frees up any fibrous tension whilst simultaneous causing minimal pain.
Deep Tissue Massage:
Deep tissue massage involves manipulation of the deep layers of tissue in the body, including the fascia and other supportive tissue that make up the muscles and joints. Compared to other popular massage techniques — including Swedish massage or acupressue, which tend to be lighter in pressure and can involve moving the body into certain positions — deep tissue massage is usually slower and firmer.
Holistic massage is a well-known treatment that not only focuses on tense muscles as a physical result of stress, but it also takes into account a client’s emotional and spiritual well-being. It is an ancient method of healing that stimulates the blood circulation and clears the lymphatic drainage system which assists in releasing toxins from the body. By recognizing that illness and stress affects not only one’s physical but also emotional, spiritual and mental well-being, Holistic Massage allows the body’s natural healing abilities to come forth and balance the entire body as a whole.
