Owner and Massage Therapist
At BodySense our massage treatments will help your body and mind feel free and clear of all worries and stressors that life places upon us.
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 as general massage. Our therapists specialize in deep tissue, trigger point therapy, relaxation, hot rocks, MFR and dry needling. We love to give our clients the results they need to have a good quality of life as no one likes to be living in constant pain!
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 that is on Harris Cres, 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!!!
"Reject your sense of injury, and the injury itself disappears"

Deep tissue massage is a broad range of medical practices that are based on many years of tradition. 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.
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.
TRIGGER POINT THERAPY
A trigger point is a "hyperirritable spot in skeletal muscle". Trigger points if active can cause a radiated consistent pain when compressed often referring distally. As a trained Massage Therapist, we can help eliminate these to get your muscle and body working 100% again.

“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."
