Lindi O’Connor A. Dip.M.T.
Lindi O’Connor A. Dip.M.T.Massage and Reflexology
Lindi O’Connor is a Body-Mind Massage therapist with over 30 years experience in the field in various countries. She is certified in Deep Tissue, Relaxation, Reflexology, and Sports and Therapeutic Massage.
Lindi has discovered how profoundly our bodies react to stress and stored emotions, a natural result of “everyday life”, and how this can be reduced by touch and massage – combined with an ability to “listen” and feel the body’s pain. “Bones, muscles, and cellular tissues hold memories of emotional events and life’s stress. Through varied massage techniques we release tension and pain, freeing and healing the “embodied mind.”
