Welcome to SEN-Massage Therapy
Born from my passion of Thai Massage, it is named after the 10 main Thai meridians (SEN lines) and has evolved to incorporate many Bodywork modalities over the last 20 years of practice.
Whatever style of treatment you prefer, a variety of techniques will be used to look after your physical wellbeing as well as your mental and emotional state. I specialise in reducing stress and chronic pain, increasing mobility and promoting wellbeing.
My Hands-On Practice covers North & East London.
I also work with Online Self-Care Therapy which is great for those who can’t see me in person due to location or shielding, or simply because you prefer not to receive hands-on work during a pandemic. There are many benefits to working online and one of my favourite Online session is teaching Group Online Self-Care Workshops
I teach Thai Massage workshops & certified courses and regularly schedule fun Online Self-Massage Worskhops
I am qualified to Level 5 through Jing Advanced Massage Training and I am working towards a Level 6 BTEC qualification
Massage Therapy: an Insight
Massage is an instinctive and human response to pain or discomfort. When we hurt ourselves, we instinctively touch the area where we feel the pain.
"Massage Therapy" is the holistic application of physical touch to affect the systems of the body; ie. the muscular, skeletal, digestive, elimination, respiratory, circulatory, lymphatic, endocrine, emotional, mental and nervous systems.
It is the manipulation the soft tissues of the body with the hands for therapeutic, healing, relaxing and pleasurable effects.
It is the loving touch of the heart expressed through the hands.
Massage Therapy is an Art & a Science
Massage has been practised for centuries. In ancient India massage therapists kneaded patients with herbs and oils to relieve tiredness, increase energy, and improve overall health. In fifth-century
Greece Hippocrates was quoted as saying, “The physician must be experienced in many things, but assuredly in rubbing.”
It has always been a popular treatment for the relief of sports injuries, strains, and muscle soreness. But its benefits are more than just physical: it is also an effective way to alleviate depression and anxiety—and improve sleep quality.
Furthermore it can literally change a client’s perception of pain. By increasing movement in joints and muscle tissue, bodywork can accelerate the healing process and increase the quality of life.
In David Lauterstein’s words: ‘A massage initiates multiple associations and is a kinesthetic system that’s enjoyed and may persist in consciousness.’
