Julie Rogers MICHT MHFST, Mobile Massage Therapist, FrenchAlps. I am a professional Massage Therapist based in the French Alps and my work entails visiting holiday chalets and massaging skiiers/snowboarders who have spent many hours up the mountain exerting more than their muscles will take sometimes! I have various massage therapy qualifications, from relaxation styles to sports massage, and I tend to mix techniques from each style of massage depending upon the clients' requirements.
I now have most of Shama’s courses, but for me, the Thai Rocking Massage course is one of my favourites. This is because some of the stretches and positions can be very painful when executed in the traditional way. Especially after skiing, everything locks up! The Thai Rocking course is gentle and flows with no pain… and the amount of chi that flows through the body is just THE most relaxing but energizing experience. Everything opens up and comes alive from head to toe. I incorporate these moves into most styles of my massages now and have received some amazing, confidence boosting comments – everyone loves it!!
