Biodynamic, Pregnancy, Postnatal and Abdominal Massage - for Women's Health
We all know how profoundly stress affects our lives, creating cycles of tension and disturbance. Biodynamic massage addresses the stress by working with your body on both a physical and energetic level, helping to melt away tensions, balance the nervous system and bring your body back to a calm, relaxed state.
Using different techniques and touch to suit each client’s individual needs and state of mind, the massage can vary from deep muscular release work or work on the connective tissue, to gentle stroking, holding, stretches or aura work. Each treatment is a unique experience and the effect is somewhere between mindfulness and psychotherapy

Clients come for abdominal-sacral massage with a variety of issues including:
The combination of deep work to the sacrum and abdomen provides both a physical and emotional release allowing the symptoms to respond.
