ABOUT Massage + MINDFULNESS
WHAT WHERE WHO
Treating Adults and Children
Massage and Mindfulness focuses on the treatment of stress related problems in adults and children. This is achieved by using therapeutic massage in combination with mindfulness techniques that assist clients to reach a deep state of relaxation. Services are centred around each person’s individual needs and reason for attending. The treatment aims to address muscular discomfort and pain from facial to deep tissue. While the overall purpose of the therapy is to improve clients’ self-awareness of their physical, mental and emotional needs.
Massage and Mindfulness provides face to face services to adults and children in a range of settings to meet the diverse needs of clients, including clinic-based services, outreach or home-based services for special needs clients, and corporate based services. Services can be provided to an individual, group or in a corporate environment. All services are delivered in an environmentally sustainable setting, using sustainable practices while meeting clinical standards. Clinic-based services are located at the peaceful and quiet country home of Rochelle Paten in Harcourt, near beautiful Mount Alexander and along the Barkers Creek, only 10 minutes-drive from the historic regional centre of Castlemaine in Australia. Neighbouring accommodation, and accommodation the Create Retreats or the Tread Harcourt, can be sought.
