Meet Imogen Quilley
Massage therapy appealed to me because I knew I wanted to work in a profession where I was helping people in a tangiable way, which allows the time needed to connect with people one to one. After exploring different avenues I concluded that nothing is as immediate and rewarding to me as being able to physically lay my hands on someone with an intention for healing to take place.
What I find interesting about holistic massage is the way it includes the use of a range of techniques, an anatomical and physiological understanding of the body and an intuitive touch. To combine the art and science of massage practice means that no treatment plan is ever the same - because no person is.
I think that the way the mind and body are interlinked is very powerful, and so feel that it is important to connect with people on a human level rather than focus solely on physical ailments; I relish the opportunity to see, hear and meet people in whatever place they're at in life with empathy and understanding.
Everyday stress - both physical and mental - can cause a strain to our bodies and impact our sense of well being. This means that almost everyone could benefit from having regular massage and makes it a real honour to be able to give my clients time to relax, let go and feel more themselves.
I am now undertaking a further course in Remedial and Sports Massage to gain a deeper understanding of the body and be able to treat people with more specific needs. I intend to weave my holistic approach together with new techniques and knowledge to effectively treat a wider variety of clients.
