"I have a real love and deep passion for my work. Many of my clients have reported how supportive, enriching and transformative this work has been for them. I warmly invite you to experience a session with me".
Today I treated myself to a massage with Luka. Under her loving touch my body felt beautifully met, nourished and supported to relax and open. She then massaged two dear friends who had been struggling with pain and tension. It was a joy to see them emerge softened, renewed and very grateful. I would recommend Luka's massages to anyone for the gift of her healing hands, the delicious oils she blends for each person, her warm shining heart, and her capacity to attune to whoever she is working with very deeply.
