Suzanne Elliott (Suze)
Intuitive therapeutic bodyworker with 26 years of experience. Trained in Aromatherapy, many different forms of massage and bodywork, Reiki (master), Bowen and breath work. I’m also a Shamanic practitioner. Her work has taken a blend of its own, through touch and intuition she is guided to work uniquely with each person.
Her goal is to bring deep relaxation, balance, emotional healing, freeing oneself from dis-ease, connection to self, spirit and Gaia. She offers one to one treatments and each one is always different. Sometimes it is just massage or Bowen, if requested or an Intuitive treatment which starts with tuning in, and massage on the back and then once I start to work, it unfolds as to what the body is telling me. She goes with my inner guidance, connection with spirit and what the individual is saying to her, silently or speaking.
Intuitive Bodywork - Massage therapy
This is a unique treatment for each individual. I use a combination of techniques, generally beginning by givIng a deep Back, Neck and Shoulder massage. Whilst I am working I tune into the person and am then guided by their energies, my intuition and guidance. If guided to, I bring in different healing hands on techniques that will help bring one into a deeper, more relaxed healing space. These techniques involve soft and deep massage, specific acupressure points, some Bowen moves, and Reiki/Hands on healing Energy work. The treatment takes its own flow and rhythm. I work holistically linking in with the whole person. This work can bring deep relaxation and healing on many levels.
Therapies Included in this treatment session are Massage, Bowen, deep and light pressure point work, Reiki, energy healing and Shamanic tools if drawn to use. All sessions are unique and are very personal to the individual.
The Original Bowen Technique
Bowen brings a deep sense of relaxation, which then helps the body return to balance. Releasing old body memories and bringing forth healing as the nervous system begins to adjust the levels of tension held in the muscles and body memory.
It is a gentle form of bodywork where subtle but dynamic moves are performed over muscles and connective tissue, sending messages deep into the body retrieving cellular memory for a relaxed balanced way of well being, this treatment can be received lying on a couch, or sitting, on skin or through light clothing.
Generally the first moves are done on the back progressing into other procedures when appropriate. Between each set of moves there is a short break for the body to process and absorb these moves.
This treatment is deeply relaxing and restorative.
Reiki and Hands on Healing
Uses gentle, meditative touch, holding and subtle movements to convey healing and restore balance to the body. The Energy therapist seeks to channel positive, healing energy to the receiver and works to balance energy patterns in the body. As a result, the body’s natural self-healing mechanisms strengthen, helping to establish optimum mental, emotional, and physical health.
Energy Work is accomplished through a simple laying-on-of hands and is facilitated in a meditative state of care and healing. The therapist becomes a conduit of universal healing energy to the client, subtly sensing, assessing and reacting to the movement, flow and release of energy in the client. We become the Hollow Bone opening up to the flow of this healing energy. Within the Reiki system symbols are used to enhance the energy.
Aromatherapy and Massage is one of the oldest natural healing arts. This includes different hand movements and massage depths to enhance body function, aid in the healing process, decrease muscle reflex activity, inhibit motor-neuron excitability and promote relaxation and well-being. I usually start with a Back, Neck and Shoulder massage to bring deep relaxation, I am also very happy to be guided by the individual as to their specific needs.
Massage manipulates both superficial and deep muscles, tendons, ligaments, fascia, skin, joints and other connective tissue, as well as lymphatic vessels and organs including the gastrointestinal and reproductive organs. The body also holds emotional tension that massage can help release and can be very beneficial to the healing process. Energetically the whole body is linked, mind, emotional body, physical and spirit.
Oil used is Organic Coconut Oil. I also include essential oils, blended on the day if requested, to suit the individual needs.
