Hi there, I’m Viv
I have a NZ Diploma in Therapeutic Massage (NZATMP 1994) with extra courses in deep tissue, trigger point work and sports massage. I also have experience in post operative massage such as spinal surgery, hip replacements and post cancer treatment.
However if you have had massages before it’s not all about the qualifications. A therapist needs to have the ‘hands’ and the present mindedness to make a difference. Diagnosis alone isn’t enough.
Working with people to find the most appropriate approach to suit their individual needs is something I enjoy. My approach is holistic. People carrying deep muscular tension might need very firm manipulative pressure. Others experiencing stress or anxiety might need a lighter and more nurturing touch. Whatever the case, when you leave you will be more relaxed and more aware of your body. This is the beginning of healing.
