Women only massage
"My aim is to create a safe and peaceful space where the nervous system can unwind, physical tensions can be released, the heart can open and the soul remembers home. I wish to help people to reconnect with themselves, to feel whole, to feel at home in their body."
Melanie Requet is a Certified Bodywork Practitioner with 10 years experience. She specializes in Deep Flow bodywork and uses mindful presence, energy healing and body-reading skills during her sessions. She 'listens' with her hands, allowing her intuition to guide her massage. Her intention is to create a deeply connected, nurturing experience where muscular tensions are released and the nervous system is deeply soothed.
