In my experience, if my body is open and can easily breath and my spine is properly aligned; energy freely flowing, I’m generally a happy human being. The physical practice of yoga, known as asana (postures) has been and continues to be very helpful with keeping my body in optimal condition to receive enough oxygen and thus energy in all the parts of my body that would otherwise be neglected.
However, good massage has other benefits that yoga doesn’t usually offer. Human touch is one of the most overlooked and yet most profound tools for healing at our disposal. Massage, if done properly, is extremely effective in aiding circulation, realigning parts of the body that are out of alignment ie; spine, hips, shoulder girdle, and eliminating toxins from the body by breaking down adhesions and scar tissue and thus reincorporating and bringing more awareness into the little parts of your body that weren’t being used, as part of the larger container for energy flow known as your physical body.
Massage can also be very helpful with depression, feeling ungrounded, or simply helping to reconnect to one’s body. Since I started receiving massages on a regular basis about 5 years ago, I have more consistent energy, I feel more vibrant and awake and I’m much more clear and comfortable in my body in general.
I’m a graduate of the Nairobi School of Therapeutic Massage 600 hour program and have been working as a massage therapist in the Nairobi Area since I graduated in 2006. I’ve worked both in clinical and spa settings and have also had a mobile massage service that continues to thrive. My body work varies quite a bit depending on who I’m working on and what they need.
My approach to massage is a holistic one and I always try and get the clearest picture of what my client needs before we work together. Whether you’re seeking relief of a specific issue or desire the benefits of regular massage therapy, I can accomodate you.
I specialize in Thorough Deep Tissue work and draw from a wide range of modalities including, Neuro-muscular therapy, myofascial release, swedish, deep tissue, hawaiin lomi lomi, shiatsu, reflexology, sports massage and energy work, to best suit your needs. I’m also a certified yoga teacher and have had a regular yoga/meditation practice for many years.
I’ve been lucky enough to have the opportunity to make a good portion of my living playing music professionally and feel that doing body work and having a steady yoga and meditation practice are all quite complimentary to each other.
My work has been called complete, intuitive, intelligent, patient, intense, loving. Just like my music and yoga, my body work is constantly changing and evolving and becoming more refined. I learn equally as much from working on clients as I do from receiving massages or taking various body work or yoga workshops.
Please take a look at some of my Testimonials. I look forward to working with you!
