Having discovered the world of personal growth and meditation, mainly through teachings she received in India, Reme decided in 2015 to train in Bioenergetic Ayurvedic Massage, at the Innova School in Valencia.
Passionate and captivated by her new tool to work the body while being connected to the heart and quietening the mind, Reme furthered this training in Kerala, India in 2017.
Since then she has been working and developing her treatment, by adding additional approaches to therapy, including Reiki (level 3); Thai Massage; Californian Massage; Active Mediation; and Bioenergetic Respiration.
Reme sees the body as an internal exploratory key that guides us towards silence and the intrinsic joys of life.
The most important difference between different types of massage is where the focus is placed: For Reme, massage is a time for meditation, by means of overcoming the mind and connecting intuition and the heart into her hands.
By using long movements, Reme goes over the body to create a smoothness which will relax your nervous system. Different rhythms are used and much of the work is done with both thumbs, then elbows and forearms, so as to work into your deeper muscles. This creates a state of relaxation and confidence which allows energy to move and express itself in order to become nourishment for the body, mind and heart.
The aim of this type of massage is to free your energy into motion. It gradually turns into a healing practice, where different rhythms are considered. This massage helps you to get connected to a silent, quiet place, where your mind can rest in your heart, as it is there that health is restored.
Reme also uses techniques from Reiki, Reflexology, Hot Stone Massage and Herbal Pouch Massage as part of her treatments.
Reme's treatments are usually available on Wednesdays
