tactile therapy NZ

tactile therapy is a private practice set in a peaceful suburb on Auckland's North Shore. We provide complementary therapies that feel good and do good.

We're fully qualified and professionally accredited. Bookings are essential and can be made online. We specialise in the following incredibly relaxing treatments:
- reflexology of the feet, hands, and/or ears
- Indian head massage

In addition to our treatments, we also offer the following products:
- gift vouchers
- handcrafted wooden foot rollers
- acupressure rings
- organic foot soaks
- assort

Operating as usual

[07/02/21]   Hi everyone,
A belated message to let you know that we won't have our regular spot at the Crystal Visions Holistic Market in Milford this weekend.
My dad was re-admitted to hospital late Thursday night, so I will be spending time with him and supporting my mum.

The next market is on the 17th and 18th and I hope to be back by then.

Take care,
Natasha

Imagine settling back in your chair, being carefully tipped back so that you recline comfortably, and then enjoying a gentle treatment so relaxing that you fall asleep 😴

That's exactly what happened to my client Amrol, who booked a 30 minute auricular therapy treatment at our market pop-up today.

Super excited to be part of this event 🀩

Laurinda Howarth will be the speaker and this woman is incredibly inspiring, having survived cancer twice, whilst being a wife, mum, coach, trainer, and business owner. She's going to talk about this, and share her experience and how the lessons she's learned along the way can help you.

There'll also be stalls to shop from, goodie bags to enjoy, refreshments to nibble on, and lots of amazing ladies to engage with.

If you're in Auckland then I hope to see you there tomorrow. It's in Albany at 6:30pm; follow Laurinda's post to get your tickets (they're only $19!).

πŸ‘‘ TRUTH! πŸ‘‘
I was at an event recently and this was said by one of the speakers. That speaker was Jess Owen, of Just Jess Cake Co and she is πŸ’―% right.

Being overly busy and exhausted = stressed, and that's something to avoid, not aspire to. How you do this is up to you, acknowledging of course that sometimes s**t happens (here's looking at you, 2020 πŸ˜‚πŸ˜­).

Helping to alleviate the effects that stress has on your body is something we can help with, as our treatments help stimulate the parasympathetic nervous system (that's all about 'rest and digest', not 'fight or flight') 😴

We do this in a peaceful setting with a gentle but effective touch. If this sounds like something you need, I'd love to hear from you.

Take it easy, ❀️ Natasha

Feedback from Linda, a client at the market this weekend, who further made my day by saying that I'd see her again - and that she might go home and nap 😴

I always appreciate lovely feedback, and I always enjoy seeing how relaxed clients are after a treatment. Linda's was just 20 minutes, which goes to show that it doesn't take long to feel good 😌

Where has Natasha been?

It may have seemed like I've disappeared this year, and it's true to say that I did retreat for the first two and a bit months. After a year that was challenging enough, at the end of last year our family learned that mum had cancer. And on the 28th of December, she began six weeks of treatment πŸ˜”

I meant to post something at the time to let you all know that I'd be closing so that I could do nothing but focus on her and her health, but doing so would only make it more real (and I have to confess I've grown more than a little weary of having to say I'm closed).

Reflexology is my passion, and this little business is my baby, but family must come first and I wanted to put all my energy into being with my mum, and supporting both her and my dad. I make no apologies for this, for if last year has taught us anything, it's how important health, time, and our loved ones are ❀️

Mum's treatment has now finished, I'm back home again, I've taken some time for me to refill my own cup, and am now looking forward to getting back into it and caring for you all again πŸ‘£

{SYNCHRONICITIES} πŸ’«
A lovely new client came to see me this afternoon and she had this πŸ“– in her handbag. At the end of her treatment she gifted it to me, telling me she knew she had put it her bag for a reason.

Even though we'd never met and are of different generations, we had a number of synchronicities. Among them, the book was written by Eunice Ingham, who is well regarded as the 'mother of Western reflexology'. It was Eunice's birthday two days ago and I'd just been thinking I needed one of her books in my collection.

And, amazingly, it turns out that my client and my mum went to school together in Levin (of all places!) and studied with the same ballet teacher. My mum is visiting at the moment, so I was able to reintroduce these two ladies to each other and it was really special to see them recognise one another and reminisce ❀️

There were a couple of other things, but the most profound was this unexpected link to my family. I absolutely love it when there are random connections to people, as it reminds us that we're not so strange to one other as we may think 🀝

PS. It turns out these ladies also have similar interests, so mum gifted two of her books to my client/her classmate πŸ’

{ REFLEXOLOGY LYMPH DRAINAGE TRAINING }

Back to school this week to learn the Sally Kay method of Reflexology Lymph Drainage from Sally Kay herself.

This is a real pinch-me moment, as I've wanted to study with Sally since I began my reflexology diploma in 2019.

We've just finished day 1 and I'm buzzing with enthusiasm about learning - and eventually practicing - this award-winning technique. Sally Kay is so engaging as a teacher, and whilst her method has received acclaim from the academic and medical world, it's the heartwarming feedback she has received from her clients and the passion she has for what she does that I find so inspiring. I can't wait to qualify and be able to offer this to those who need it ❀️
