The Quiet Way therapeutic massage approach has been born of 20 years experience working with people who experience some form of trauma.  The approach blends Swedish massage, myofascial, healing, craniosacral and thai yoga massage techniques with aromatherapy.   People with histories of trauma and neglect may experience extreme disconnection from the body, or may not be able to feel whole areas of the body. When we become muffled like this, we no longer feel fully alive. Massage can be a way in to reconnect and feel more relaxed and adventurous. People then become truly involved with their therapy, curious about their behaviours, thoughts and feelings.

As we live our lives we experience many events: being born, the loss of a loved one, a new job, divorce, moving house, violence, road traffic accident, injury or chronic illness, recurrent miscarriage and more. You may have witnessed or endured the most unspeakable of atrocities during war or civil conflict, or lost our home and community through natural disaster.

These events can leave their mark in our body, mind and psyche. A residue of shock, an echo held deep within our being, creating areas of inertia in our physical or energetic systems, creating habitual body or emotional reactions. You may experience panic attacks, fear, anxiety issues, PTSD, chronic neck pain, back ache, regular headaches, jaw clenching, night time teeth grinding or an unexplained ache or pain that just won’t leave you and you’re not sure where it’s come from. Becoming body aware puts us in touch with our inner world, our inner landscape. Simply noticing body sensation, annoyance or anxiety, helps us shift perspective and opens up a new option other than the habitual reaction.

The Quiet Way approach pays attention to that which remains unspoken in the bodymind, to gently disperse this, any associated inertia and encourage a return to wellness.

If you feel this approach may be right for you, please ring and we can chat further.
