Introduction

Welcome to my web site.  I am glad that you have arrived here.  if you are looking for top-quality, professional massage therapy in Altea and surroundings, you have come to the right place.

What makes me stand out is the length of time I have practised (since 2002) and the depth of my experience.  I decided from the start that being a jack-of-all-trades is not interesting. I prefer to be an expert in a few things.  Thus, I developed an in-depth knowledge of just three things:  body massage, yoga, and Manual Lymphatic Drainage.

I am an anatomy nerd.  I love seeing the body in motion and what I most recommend to my massage patients is that they also become yoga students.  I am breathing expert, it goes with the yoga territory, and I use guided meditations during bodywork treatments to transform a short, shallow breath in to a long deep one.  This is transformative work and makes the effects of the massage last much longer.

It is hard to find good quality massage.  In my extensive experience as a massage client, I know that finding someone who works deeply, without hurting you, is hard.  It is just as hard to find a therapist who controls their ego enough to allow the patient some silencepeace and quiet during their treatment.  It goes without saying that first class, preferably organic oils and balms are paramount – anything based on petroleum or petrolatum is only going to harm the body as the skin absorbs most of what it comes into contact with.    A massage room must be hygienic and the temperature tightly controlled.  There is nothing worse than shivering, or sweating, your way through a massage.

The therapist must be knowledgeable, and demonstrably trained.  Of course, they must also be professional enough to refer you to another professional if they are not able to help you themselves.  I have a circle of professional colleagues who I confidently send patients to in the event that the patient is better served by, say, nutrition, osteopathy, acupuncture or chiropractic.
