What is Body Therapy?

Body Therapy is intuitive body work that hones in on the nervous system and its ability to bring body and mind back into balance through a state of deep rest and relaxation. When your brain receives the message that you are safe, your nervous system permits the flow of energy and nutrients towards the life giving organs to increase.

Body Therapy is a gentle and nurturing fusion of acupressure techniques and energy healing that bring you back into balance. The techniques I use draw upon Thai Yoga Massage, Qigong, Yoga, anatomy, physiology, the neuroscience of stress and trauma as well as much of my own experience.

Who is Body Therapy for?

Body Therapy is for absolutely anyone who is looking for a gentle body work that tunes in to the various physical, mental, emotional and spiritual aspects of the body.

Body Therapy can help if you are experiencing stress, anxiety, chronic pain, depression, low energy, low motivation and many other ailments.

It is also a practical resource for regular self-care to rebalance your nervous system and release excess energy that no longer serves you in living your ideal life. 

What can I expect in a Body Therapy treatment?

Body Theapy sessions are fully clothed and often floor based, although can be accomodated to your mobility and physical requirements. Expect to feel deeply relaxed, light, calmly energised, grounded, and peaceful.

Body Therapy doesnt focus on, or try to ‘fix’ a physical condition, injury or concern. There’s no poking and massaging of knots – it’s completely pain-free. The gentle work brings your body into a state of deep rest which encourgaes your body’s natural healing ability by releasing stress and promoting blood flow.

Linda

When I first experienced Body Therapy I had no idea what to expect! I was thinking it was going to be something like a deep tissue massage but it was entirely different! At first I was surprised by Megan’s super soft touch, but very shortly I started to feel my body relax and release tension in a way that I had not experienced in regular massages!

Sophia

If you’re looking for a body therapist who can help you achieve a deeper sense of well-being, Megan is the one to see. She is truly a master of her craft and a fountain of knowledge. I feel incredibly grateful to have found her and look forward to many more sessions in the future.
