When I took my first steps into massage I had a clear picture of where I wanted to work: a peaceful, cosy, natural space for deep relaxation, with room for personality and personal touches.
I originally trained in a traditional Swedish style of massage but always felt I was looking for something else. To me, Lomi Lomi offered a complete package—it looked beautiful, it felt amazing and it made practical sense. It’s deeply nurturing—you can feel its philosophy being written on your skin. I was hooked.
My practice is based on connection and acknowledgement. I’ve always believed massage to be a fierce teacher with many profound lessons. It reminds me to be gentle with myself, and others. We are all tired. We all ache. We each of us carry our secrets, burdens and cherished wounds. We want to be seen and heard and loved. It reminds me how amazing, mysterious, complicated and beautiful the human body is and that the only possible response is reverence. It reminds me that it’s not just flesh and bone that we bring to the massage table and that each massage deserves to be unique because every visit brings something new.
Like any skill, excellence in massage is developed throughout a lifetime of learning. I’m committed my professional development, attend seminars and workshops.
