Marianna started her training in massage after suffering the side effects of working at a desk every day after only 6 months in the job. With extreme lower back pain, stiffness and low energy, she was told by colleagues and friends. 'you get used to it'. This set her off on a journey visiting massage therapists and bodyworkers, where she soon became fascinated by the mechanics of the body, but also into the concept of how mental dis-ease and trauma will inevitably manifest in the body.
Her training in holistic massage, sports massage, myofascial release and thai yoga massage is what gives her treatments such a unique and creative style, addressing musculoskeletal tension and dysfunction, as well as working with restrictions in fascia. She uses her experience, knowledge and curiosity to develop a unique therapeutic treatment for each client, working closely with people to engage the natural healing process of the body.
She works with a range of clients with different goals; from gym-goers and sports people, to yoga lovers and dancers, to those working in the City and suffering from the side effects of long hours sitting at a desk.
She also offers treatments for pregnancy and post-natal massage, as well as a specific treatment for TMJ syndrome - disorder of the temporomandibular joint (jaw). For more details on this treatment, click here.
As a therapist she promotes body positivity and health at every size, thus strongly encourages clients with bodies outside of the cultural 'ideal' who have been discouraged by body therapies to see her.
She equally supports LGBTQ+ rights and providing access to therapies for those with disabilities/illness.
