I provide a range of personal treatments at my farm in Central Portugal:
- Aromatherapy Massage
- Swedish Massage (no oils)
- Indian Head Massage
- Deep Tissue Massage
- Sports Massage
- Reiki Energy Healing – Hands on or Remote.
See below for further explanations of the treatments. I also work with animals using massage and energy healing on a bespoke basis.
My approach is to explore your goals with you before we agree a treatment or treatment plan. Some of my clients just want a massage to revitalise, relax or to prepare them to be their best. Others come for healing body, mind, emotions and spirit. My treatments are holistic and I will advise on the best treatment for your unique condition and needs.
How to arrange a treatment.
Please contact me initially and include a phone number so I can call you to explore your requirements. I can answer any specific questions you have during our phone call. We can then agree a plan of action to suit your particular circumstances. If you are local to my farm in Central Portugal, or close to a location where I am running an event, we can arrange a time and place to meet for a treatment. If I can’t help you I may be able to refer you to someone who can.
Prices vary from €10 for a 10 minute head and shoulder massage, to €45 for a 50 minute, full body aromatherapy massage. Reiki treatments are €25 and take up to 50 minutes.
All my massage treatments are tailored to your specific needs. If you choose an aromatherapy massage I will use a unique blend of oils, freshly prepared for your treatment. I will manage the environment to be peaceful and calming so your entire experience with me will be beneficial.
I am a certified masseur and have been practising massage therapy for more than three decades. My usual massage techniques apply varying amounts of pressure with my hands, fingers, elbows, forearms or sometimes my knees, feet, or a device. The purpose of massage is generally for the treatment of body stress or pain or to relieve anxiety or for general relaxation. You will be treated while lying on a massage table, sitting in a massage chair, or lying on a padded mat on the floor. Your privacy and dignity will be considered at all times during the treatment.
The researched benefits of massage therapy are widely reported to be pain relief, reduction in anxiety, stress and depression, as well as deeper states of relaxation and connected wellbeing.
What is Reiki?
I am a Reiki Master and have been providing Reiki healings for several decades now. I am always in awe of the mysterious and powerful way it works and I feel privileged to have been attuned and able to heal in this way. Many of my clients report great improvements to their health and wellbeing and some return often for replenishing and reconnecting their energy.
Reiki is a Japanese technique for stress reduction and relaxation that also promotes healing. It is delivered by “laying on hands” and is based on the idea that an unseen “life force energy” flows through us and is what causes us to be alive. If our “life force energy” is low, then we are more likely to get sick or feel stress, and if it is high, we are more capable of being happy and healthy.
The word Reiki is made of two Japanese words – Rei which means “God’s Wisdom or the Higher Power” and Ki which is “life force energy”. So Reiki is actually “spiritually guided life force energy.”
A treatment feels like a wonderful glowing radiance that flows through and around you. Reiki treats the whole person including body, emotions, mind and spirit creating many beneficial effects that include relaxation and feelings of peace, security and wellbeing. Reiki is a simple, natural and safe method of spiritual healing and self-improvement that everyone can use. It also works in conjunction with all other medical or therapeutic techniques to relieve side effects and promote recovery.
