Acupuncture

Roland-copy-1

Roland Lewis

After twelve years studying and practising Kung Fu, Roland became fascinated by the internal side of the martial art and thus started to undertake practices of Tai Chi and Qi Gong.  In using breath control and movement to influence the flow of Qi throughout the body, he noticed a huge improvement in his own health and well-being. He was astounded by the change, and that fascination led him to a career in acupuncture.

Having trained for four years at the internationally renowned College of Integrated Chinese Medicine, affiliated with Kingston University, he qualified with a BSc (Hons) degree and a Licentiate of Acupuncture (LicAc) and is now a member of the British Acupuncture Council (BAcC).

Roland’s integrated acupuncture style of Five Element and Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) treats the root energetic imbalance that is influencing mental, physical and spiritual well-being, whilst also being able to treat the presenting symptom(s). Such an approach allows treatment to focus on mind, body and spirit, and to centre in on the individual, not just the illness.

Acupuncture can help with a wide range of conditions, from general feelings of low energy and poor health, to specific conditions such as Chronic Pain, Anxiety, Stress, IBS, PMS, Menopausal Syndrome, among others.

Bengali Massage & Hanna Somatics

Bristol-City-Yoga-Bengali-Massage-Cat-Balaam

Cat Balaam

Cat trained as a massage therapist in 2003 and travelled to India seeking a true master of therapeutic massage. She was incredibly lucky to have her hopes fulfilled and exceeded; learning the amazing and magical technique that she now calls Bengali massage. She has worked full-time offering this treatment since 2006. This is a dynamic full body treatment that gently releases and dissipates the tension and holding habits of the muscles, often caused by underlying emotional, mental or physical issues.

Bengali massage encourages the body’s own healing process with long sweeping strokes over the whole body, stretching and subtle vibrational movements, exploring the range of motion of each joint throughout the skeleton from fingers to vertebrae. This unique experience helps to reawaken the body and restore the mind-body connection.

Catherine also offers Clinical Hanna Somatics sessions – a clothed treatment in which she teaches gentle and specific, mindful movements to bring awareness back into the body. This re-educates and releases the chronic holding habits of the muscles that create tension and pain. This is a powerful and empowering process giving us back the ability to help ourselves find ease and comfort in daily life.

Deep Tissue Massage

Bristol-City-Yoga-Therapy-Deep-Tissue-Massage-Katerina-Dvorakova

Katerina Dvorakova

Kat is a qualified massage therapist offering Holistic and Deep Tissue massage since 1997. Holistic massage draws on a number of techniques from many traditions including Swedish Massage, combining them with the massage therapist’s sensitivity, to meet the needs of each individual as a whole.

This means whether you are looking for a deep relaxation, relief from pain or to be left feeling revitalised and renewed this massage is for you.

Deep tissue massage is similar to Swedish massage, but the deeper pressure is beneficial in releasing chronic muscle tension. The focus is on the deepest layers of muscle tissue, tendons and fascia (the protective layer surrounding muscles, bones and joints). Every massage that Kat gives is uniquely tailored to suit your needs.

Working with you and your body she uses a variety of methods including deep tissue work, stretching, mobilising and holding to offer your body deep relaxation, rejuvenation and the opportunity to ease tense muscles, relieve stress and anxiety, and to improve flexibility. Ultimately this will help you to move and use your body more effectively, and to feel more connected with yourself.
