About me

Hi, I’m Melita. I have a passion for helping people to reconnect with life and wellness which I believe comes from being truly in contact with yourself. Living authentically ultimately leads to independent wellbeing regardless of what is happening in the outside world. My goal is to help you find peace, happiness and resourcefulness within yourself.

What is Biodynamic massage?

Biodynamic massage is an attuned psychotherapeutic touch that works with the whole person through their body. It aims to integrate our physical, mental, emotional and spiritual aspects, helps us to reconnect with our inner world and release any blockages. Biodynamic massage originated from Body Psychotherapy and was developed by Gerda Boysen, a Norwegian physiotherapist and psychotherapist. At its core Biodynamic massage has deep acceptance and embodied listening, unconditionally welcoming you and taking time to understand you and your needs.

What happens in a session?

Every session starts with a short chat which is an opportunity for you to take time to reflect and connect with how you are feeling and what you need. For example exhaustion might call for rest and replenishment, anxiety might signal the need for more grounding. Those qualities can be communicated through touch and different massage techniques.

During the massage we do not use oils and it is your choice whether to get undressed. It is more important to create a safe and trusting environment where you feel comfortable and can let go. You can cry, laugh, talk, stay silent, the focus is on letting the energy flow and release.

We use an electronic stethoscope to monitor the sounds of the digestive system as a form of biofeedback. G. Boysen discovered that our gut not only digests our food but also our emotions. During the treatment, we follow the sounds to find the most attuned touch needed and meet the individual where they are. When the person feels met and safe, they spontaneously enter deep relaxation where the body can release physical and psychological tension.

How Biodynamic massage can help?

One of the main goals of Biodynamic massage is to facilitate the release of any emotional or psychological issues that may be stored in the body (experienced as tension, pain, or other symptoms and imbalances). By working through these issues, individuals can gain a greater understanding of themselves and become more in tune with their bodies, leading to greater overall well-being, stronger sense of self and healthier boundaries.

Biodynamic massage is also an excellent tool for reducing stress, inviting more relaxation and vitalisation, releasing muscular tension, toning muscles, relieving internal emotional pressure. It is suitable for people with psychosomatic symptoms such as headaches, anxiety, depression, insomnia etc or for those simply wanting to relax.

I am based in London (E8 4SA) and Bishop's Stortford (CM23 2LD).
