Here at Bodysense we enjoy being able to help people with sore muscles, body mechanics that are not working correctly, emotional and mental stress on the body as well general remedial massage. Our therapists specialize in deep tissue, pregnancy, trigger point therapy, relaxation, hot rocks, TMJ and Lymphatic Drainage.

I myself, have worked in a number of well-respected practices throughout Christchurch but have decided to take the next step in my future by opening up my own studio in Harris Crescent, Papanui. I also work closely with a chiropractor Caleb Ruthven (Papanui Chiropractic) on Gambian St, between us both I’m pretty sure we can sort most people out.
The benefits of massage:
Lowering blood pressure – at least for a while
Improvements to the peripheral circulation
Reduction in muscle tension including the relief of muscle tension headaches
Improvements to any stress-related symptoms. This can include providing a gentle boost to the immune system if you undergo regular treatments.
Improvement in posture, back, neck and shoulder problems and bio mechanics.
Help with sleeping problems.
We would love to get the opportunity to meet you, so come on over and get that tired sore body of yours sorted out. I’m sure you won’t regret it - it’s not often you hear complaints from people who get massages!!!

Hi My name is Rebecca
I specialize in therapeutic, relaxation, sports massage, Myo facial Release postural management skills, fundamental facial massage, Chinese tui na and reflexology. I have excellent communication skills.
One of my greatest satisfaction is seeing the smile on my clients face after a massage. I feel appreciated when I see the joy that my client has after their pain has been released. Life is not just about setting a pain free goal. Massage to me is a gentle and safe approach to find refreshment and peace. I proudly graduated with a level 6 diploma from the New Zealand College of Massage and have been practicing for 8 years now. I have worked with athletes right through to clients just needing a pampering massage.
I am specifically good at neck massage ( cervical spinal tension issues) foot reflexology and head massage.
NO matter if you are in pain, with chronic body imbalances, pregnant or wanting sports massage, you are welcome to my hands.
I have worked at numerous reputable places in Christchurch Auckland and in Queenstown.
Rebecca is only available during the weeks at this stage part time.
Deep tissue massage is a broad range of medical practices that are based on many years of tradition. We will use a number of different strokes and working trigger points to get down into the deeper layers of your muscle. Your body and mind will feel free and clear of all worries and stressors that life places upon us.
RELAXATION / HOT STONE
As with any kind of massage, the benefits of a relaxation massage can last for several days after your treatment. Hot stone consists of Hot rocks that are heated to 57 degrees and massaged on your body. This is great in the Winter months but not so much in the summer. Its a lovely deep relaxing massage but it can also be integrated into the deep tissue side of things.
A massage to help mum's to be with their sore lower backs, feet, legs you name it. Carrying that extra weight around puts a lot of stress on your body. I can help give you relief from muscle cramps, spasms, and myofascial pain, especially in the lower back, neck, hips, and legs.
It will help Increase in blood and lymph circulation, which can reduce swelling. It will also help reduce stress on weight-bearing joints.
I will have you in a sidelying position with bolstering and a nice warm, cosy, room to make it as comfortable and relaxing as possible.
TMJ Dysfunction (TMJD) is where two joints that connect your jaw are out of alignment. This can then cause a number of symptoms eg Headaches/migraines, clicking sounds, popping or grinding, neck/shoulder pain discomfort, muscle spasms, limited movements of the jaw and locking of the jaw. Massage can provide focused treatment of pain and symptoms associated with TMJ disorder. This full body approach to treatment can include mobility of the hips, massage of the neck, face head, and inside and outside of the mouth
“Nadia is fantastic and I would recommend her to anyone with persistent muscle pain and stiffness. Not only have her deep tissue massages alleviated my muscle pain and stiffness, she also has a detailed knowledge of the body and can advise on exercises, sleeping positions, and posture that mean the pain doesn’t come back."
