You can book a massage treatment with me in one of the following ways:
Directly with me for Muswell Hill treatments or home visits in other areas - Contact me to book
With Yogahome in Stoke Newington where I am part of their team of therapists - Contact Yogahome to book
Via Urban Massage (I haven't resumed massage services with Urban Massage yet)
Thai Massage addresses conditions such as:
back, shoulder and neck pain
tiredness and exhaustion
The treatment can be very effective in improving flexibility, enhancing relaxation, restoring and revitalising the body. Its uplifting effects can last for several days. It's a treatment for every body-type. You don't have to be flexible or athletic to receive it, in fact the yoga-based stretches are secondary and they are tailored to each body.
A typical session is 2 hours, but 1.5 hour and 1 hour treatments are available.
What is Thai Massage?
Thai Yoga Massage is one of the main branches of Traditional Thai Medicine. It is based on an energy line system, the Ten Sen, through which the body's natural life force is believed to flow. The therapist uses his/her hands, feet and elbows to apply pressure to important points on the Sen lines, together with gentle stretching and applied Hatha Yoga. This releases blockages and treats a variety of ailments.
Thai Massage can be described as a moving meditation, just like certain forms of yoga. It is a healing modality based on the movement, or re-balancing of the body's intensities (as I like to call them).
I talk about Thai massage in this video for Yogahome.
Cost of treatments booked directly with me
In the West we have the mistaken conception that a massage treatment is a luxury rather than an important healing tool to be integrated into any health programme. I want to be able to challenge this idea with my work, therefore the rates below are indicative and I offer low-cost treatments for low income earners. Please email me for more info on this.
Otherwise my current rates for treatments in clients' homes are:
60 mins £65
90 mins £85
120 mins £100
Very nice! Feeling 'aligned' in my body, my back feels much less tense. Emanuela applied just the right amount of pressure when needed. (Kristina, Marketing Professional)
I feel rejuvenated and well balanced. It feels like there's more space in my body. Emanuela was a very natural and friendly practitioner. (Rosie, Yoga Teacher)
I have had a viral illness a few days ago and the massage has really helped my body which was feeling very sore and achy. Emanuela was very in tune with me and responsive and tailored the treatment to include a gentle abdomen massage. I feel very relaxed and calm and my body feels in balance again. (Jennifer, Artist)
There was more stretching of the feet which are usually not given a lot of attention. I feel more energised and more relaxed in the back and neck, and ready to exercise! (Michael, Trading)
I felt Emanuela's touch was firm, confident, but also very gentle and careful. I felt safe, cared after, and very relaxed. She listened to my feedback when I spoke + stretched me just to the right capacity. (Scarlett, Yoga Teacher)
