Is creating a WORK-LIFE BALANCE one of your goals? Perhaps I can help ...
A few years ago I was a mum who was spending all my time doing for others and not taking time out for myself.
Hitting rock bottom forced me to make serious changes to recover my EMOTIONAL & PHYSICAL WELLBEING.
I realised the GOLDEN RULE is also about 'treating yourself the way you want others to treat you'. I discovered the importance of stepping into the 'eye of MY storm', finding the calm, recharging, then stepping back into my storm, bringing CALMNESS with me. I came to understand the POWER OF MASSAGE for me to achieve this goal.
I bring with me skills & experience from more than 30 years of working, in the corporate world & the education system, with infants through to adults. I have a BA from the University of Auckland with a double major in Psychology & Education, further certifications in special needs, including training & an internship with Glynis Brummer of Smart Learning Solutions, in Auckland; working both in schools & in private practice.
Life shifted me from a diagnostic/theraputic model to a new philosophy of ... 'if we create & maintain the right conditions, our body has its own innate wisdom to heal itself & stay well.' These days, when I'm not Massaging/Facilitating Infant Massage classes or wearing the hats of mum, daughter, aunt, sister, niece or wife you can find me 'walking my talk', along beaches, watching movies, reading, working out at my favourite women's gym, doing yoga, belly dancing or up-skilling to support my massage practice.
I look forward to meeting you, & through consultation & massage, supporting you to 'empower yourself' to achieve & maintain your own work-life balance ... what ever that may look like for you.
Taking timeout for yourself is not a luxury, it's a necessity ... Allow Yourself, Enable Yourself, Empower Yourself !
I qualified as a Relaxation Massage Therapist, with Wellpark College of Natural Therapies.
Relaxation Massage is great during pregnancy from the second trimester on.
Infant Massage Classes

Ros was awesome! She taught us how to massage, but also gave us an opportunity to talk & share with other mothers. She created a comfortable, calm atmosphere. (and made awesome cake!)
