Kati is also trained in Energy Healing, and has attended Seminars on this topic in Germany.

Dip Tuina Massage, Dip Taiji and Qigong BHSc Acupuncture and Chinese Medicine
Kelly is a TCM (traditional Chinese medicine) trained massage therapist with a holistic approach to treatments.
Tuina (pronounced "twee nah") is a delicious form of Chinese massage that relaxes, rehabilitates and re-energises. Tuina often incorporates acupressure and mobilisation techniques that give the body a gentle, passive stretch at the end of a treatment. This improves circulation and lets you walk out feeling that little bit taller.
Each treatment is tailored to suit your needs from a soothing, gentle experience to deep tissue or remedial work. Kelly often gives little pieces of advice, stretches, or gentle exercises that help prolong the effect of the massage and establish a more lasting body balance.
