The Therapist

Barry is a very humble soul not overly comfortable with promoting himself so we thought rather than putting him through the discomfort of preparing a bio, we would tell you a little bit more about him.

He first began his body work studies in 2017 with Faye and received Thai Yoga Massage Certification Level 1 & 2 certified by ITM Massage Chiang Mai, Thailand.

It became very apparent that Barry was uncovering an innate, intuitive gift for bodywork. He continued his bodywork studies with Sally Morris, completing both seated massage & myofascial release courses.

Both Samantha and Faye have regular massages with Barry and can’t recommend him more highly.

Treat yourself to a compassionate, intuitive massage from a grounded, beautiful human.

The Therapy

Thai Yoga Massage is like a rhythmic dance between giver and receiver, an exchange of energy that relieves physical and emotional tension and leaves the receiver feeling freedom physically emotionally and energetically.  Using thumbs, palms, forearms, elbows knees feet

Thai Yoga Massage gives the feeling of freeing up the body decompressing the spine and giving space internally to aid digestion, absorption & deep sleep.

Enjoy a treatment that restores your vitality and gives you an energetic boost.

The Therapist

Joanne is a Reflexologist, Aromatherapy, Indian Head and Massage Therapist as well as a Yoga Teacher and Pilates Instructor.

Joanne’s interest in natural health and wellbeing was sparked at a young age, when babysitting for a family friend who was training in Reflexology.

Fascinated by the idea that stimulating reflex points in the feet could bring about the body’s natural healing response, Joanne trained and has been practising Reflexology for 17 years and is still amazed and in awe by the power of this very gentle and deeply relaxing, ancient healing therapy.

Joanne works from a treatment room in her home in the beautiful village of Nayland on the Essex/Suffolk border.

The Therapy

The principle of Holistic Therapies is to treat the person as a whole, balancing the mind, body, spirt and emotions. Instead of treating the presenting problem, Holistic Therapies look to address the underlying cause.

Compression massage is applied to the feet, where tiny deposits and imbalances can be detected in the reflex areas, which are linked to other areas and organs of the body.

Reflexology works on the Chakras too; the spiralling centres of energy which are located on the midline of the body. The Sanskrit word “chakra” means “wheels of light”, so a very fitting therapy for Same Star’s opening weekend and the Hindu festival of Light – Diwali.
