Maureen has been a massage practitioner for over 25 years, mostly on Waiheke Island but now in Nelson. Her studies in Sydney at Nature Care College and The Australasian College of Natural Therapies gave her a thorough grounding in Swedish and Remedial Massage. Since then many shorter courses have enriched her practice, in particular an intensive study of Craniosacral Balancing. This has led to an integrated and intuitive approach to her work. She calls on different techniques and approaches according to the unique needs or wants of the client. This may be to treat specific back or neck problems, or a therapeutic massage for relaxation and rejuvenation. Or it may be to enhance a client’s awareness around personal issues that perhaps are impacting on the body. She is both gentle and deep in her work. Sessions usually are for one hour, or one and a half hours.
Underpinning all her work is a passion for what lies at the heart of human nature, and the always unique human forms in which this is expressed. And so her work is an ongoing journey of investigation, surprise – and of joy. In fact it is very much part of her own life journey, which has been grounded in a love of plants and nature, personal growth, meditation and the learning to move from “Doing” to “Being”. All with a healthy mix of scepticism, trust and humour!
