25 Jan Meet the multi-talented massage therapist: Rhiannon!
Is it a Remedial Massage Therapist, a Reflexologist, a Bird, a CranioSacral Therapist or a Plane!?!?
Well, Rhiannon Loukes is 3 of these 5 things!! (You can probably guess which…). We are SO pleased she has joined the remedial massage team at Clarity in North Adelaide, and today she shares with us a little more about her passion for her craft:
“I love massage because human touch is a natural and nurturing response to bodies in need, whether to ease pain, soothe, support or as a preventative measure. My introduction to massage was learning reflexology in Canada 10 years ago. Reflexology targets reflex zones on the feet that correspond to various structures and organs throughout the body. A reflexology session promotes wellness and balance in the body. Through a reflexology treatment I may pick up areas of congestion and this can then be further incorporated into a body massage with extra attention to those areas. The reverse can occur where during a body massage, areas of tension or restriction are noted and the corresponding reflex points on the feet are worked.
In contrast to feet, I also specialise in craniosacral therapy (CST) which gently works with the cranium, spine and sacrum. CST is a very slow and still method of bodywork, the effects of which can be profound and long lasting. CST is a great stress reliever, deeply relaxing and restorative.
As for the rest of the body I apply various techniques such as myofascial release, trigger point therapy, relaxation massage and sports massage. One of my favourite forms of massage is pregnancy massage, it is an honour to provide a safe and nurturing space for pregnant women to relax comfortably and grant themselves to a moment of peace.”
In addition to massage, Rhiannon loves snowboarding, the beach life and her beautiful little daughter Ella!
