Janet became interested in bodywork while travelling in Egypt and Asia where she saw how widely massage is used to maintain good health in everyday life.
This was a revelation and her fascination of how bodywork can relase tension, trauma, stress and pain and restore good health and wellness has only grown over the nearly 10 years she has been providing treatments.
As a holistic bodyworker, Janet is interested to know what's going on in each person's life and how that is affected by and affecting the body tension, posture, stress levels and how they feel in themself.
She is a transactional bodyworker and will listen to what the clients wants from their session and make a plan with them to help them move towards the results they hope to see, whether that is managing pain,
rebalancing posture, moving from stress to more peace and clarity or feeling like themself again.
Janet is a trauma-informed practitioner and aware of how our bodies and nervous systems can hold onto patterns and experiences. She loves most of all to help return us to our natural state of balance, where we're feeling good, clear and living with a beautiful sense of aliveness.
