Your Path to Wellness


Discover the world of Biodynamic Massage

Biodynamic massage emerges as a truly distinctive therapeutic path, integrating the principles of bodywork with those of psychotherapy. This artful integration honours both the body’s intricate wisdom and the transformative power of emotional well-being.


Exploring the Origins of Biodynamic Massage

Biodynamic massage is a holistic therapy founded by Gerda Boyesen, a Norwegian-born psychologist and physiotherapist. She believed that emotional and psychological issues are not separate from the body but are deeply intertwined with bodily sensations and energy flow.

What happens in a session

Your Journey to Healing and Relaxation

Biodynamic massage begins by creating a safe and welcoming space, where you can fully relax and let go. It’s in this tranquil environment that the therapeutic journey unfolds.

As the massage begins, the therapist pays close attention to your breath, your body’s subtle movements, and the tensions held within your muscles and tissues. This awareness forms the foundation of the therapeutic process.

Through a combination of rhythmic strokes, gentle stretching, and mindful touch, the massage encourages your body to release stored tension and stress. It’s a gradual unwinding, a journey of letting go.

As the session progresses, you may find yourself entering a deep state of relaxation. This is where true healing can occur. Your nervous system calms, stress dissipates, and a sense of inner peace emerges.

After the session, you may notice not only physical relief but also a greater sense of emotional clarity and mental calm. It’s as if the body, mind, and spirit have come into alignment.

Working with a stethoscope

Listening to Your Body’s Wisdom

By gently applying an electric stethoscope to your abdomen, I attentively listen to the inner workings of your gut, which is often referred to as the “second brain.” This provides us with precise and valuable feedback, allowing us to gain insight into how your body is responding to therapeutic touch.

This technique activates “psychoperistalsis,” a natural healing process in your gut. It helps you release stress and tension, both physical and emotional, by cleaning stress-related hormones from your body and restoring balance to your nervous system.

A trauma informed therapy

Supporting Recovery and Healing

This approach can be particularly effective in supporting trauma survivors on their path to recovery as it encompasses a profound understanding of how trauma impacts both the body and the mind.

As a biodynamic massage therapist, my training includes a deep sensitivity to potential triggers and responses that may reawaken past trauma in clients. Your well-being and comfort are my utmost priorities as we work together to navigate the path toward healing and recovery.
