For women sensitive by temperament or due to traumas accumulated in life
Hi, I’m Amanda, a Body-Passionate explorer of the human psyche. I help people unwind trauma and frozen patterns in the emotions, mind and body accumulated through accidents, trauma and illness. I am also passionate about self-care for women and parents and run programs to support them to fill their own well and come home to themselves.
Trained in Somatic ExperiencingTM, years of training in body work, energetic healing, conscious dance and Vipassana meditation. I Love, love, LOVE my work. (It's one of those marriages made in heaven!!)
I am passionate about helping people get the support and nurturing they need to live a balanced and happy life. I take my time with each person who calls to get really clear what it is they need and want and whether I am the right fit for them. I especially love treating women and pregnant women and assisting them to drop deeper into their bodies, Relax and feel held.

If you'd like to know more about me, read on below….
I am a qualified remedial and pregnancy masseuse, and Somatic Experiencing therapist with over 12 years experience working with people from many walks of life, in day spas and in my private practice. My services are perfect for sensitive people, those wanting to feel more alive and comfortable in their skin and people suffering from the effects of trauma (mental, emotional or physical).
With experiential study in the self-development and healing fields spanning two decades, I understand the intricate interweaving of the mind, body, emotions and spirit. Utilizing deep tissue massage, relaxation massage, Reiki, and Somatic Experiencing, I treat each client as a unique expression of their life experience, hopes and dreams. I work with compassion, presence and a playful attitude, and Love my work.
I am qualified in Somatic Experiencing ™ which heals stress and trauma via the nervous system. This training informs my massage sessions with an understanding of the human organism in terms of fight, flight and freeze, the ways we get “stuck” in any of these states, and the ways we can create movement and flow again. This translates into a compassionate and sensitive reading of your energy as I massage and a deeply nurturing experience for you.
My intention is to assist the body’s innate wisdom to bring itself back to balance, bringing You a greater sense of enjoyment, vitality, peace and harmony in your life. If you are truly committed to experiencing the best you can be, I’d love to help you.
