for Well-being with Michelle.
A good massage is truly one of life’s greatest
pleasures. Aside from the many well-known physical
benefits the mind is invited to switch-off from
thinking and simply feel the sensations in the
body. This switching-off is deeply nourishing,
bringing you back to your inner self, which is
inherently joyful and tranquil. Remind yourself
how good it feels to be deeply relaxed.
Massage is very often used to support
other healing modalities. This is a thorough massage
combining techniques from Swedish-, Deep-Tissue-,
and No-Hands Massage to effortlessly soothe away
muscular aches and pains. Treatment can be either
localised or full-body. Guaranteed to leave you
feeling lighter and brighter.
