Welcome

My name is Uschi Braun.  “Uschi” (pronounced as in '[s] ushi') means “Little she-bear” and “Braun” is the German version of “Brown”.

I was born and grew up in Germany and lived in New Zealand for 21 years before moving to the UK.  I have 'come full circle' and feel very settled in Petersfield.

As a member of the Federation of Holistic Therapists in the UK (FHT) I am fully qualifiied and insured.

 

My Massage Background and Qualifications

I love massaging and have been massaging friends and family since 1979 (when I was 18).

I have been a qualified massage therapist since 2005, when I obtained the National Certificate in Massage (using Aromatherapy) from the New Zealand College of Massage in Auckland in New Zealand.

In 2006 I obtained the Certificate in Allied Therapies (including Reflexology, Chair Massage, Mawssage & Pregnancy, etc) from the New Zealand College of Massage.

In 2008 I completed a 3-day Manual Lymphatic Drainage (MLD) course in Tauranga, New Zealand, held by Jill Griffiths, who runs the well-known Weller Institute, Melbourne, Australia.

In October 2018 I obtained the Certificate in Hot Stone Massage from the Brighton School of Massage.

And in November 2018 I attended the Diploma in Indian Head Massage from the Brighton School of Massage.

Since becoming a massage therapist I have also attended other courses / workshops / seminars including seminars on homoepathy, iridiology, nutrition etc.

 

I offer

  • Massage Therapy (with / without Aromatherapy oil)
  •    (Remedial, Relaxation, Hot Stone and Indian Head Massage)
  • Reflexology (feet and / or hands and / or ears)
  • Manual Lymphatic Drainage (MLD)
  • Mix of Massage and / or Reflexology and / or Manual Lymphatic Drainage

Please see the respective website pages (= "tabs”) for more information on Massage Therapy, Reflexology and (Manual) Lymphatic Drainage (MLD).

Depending on what my clients prefer, I use oils / waxes with or without aromatherapy oils.

All new patients receive a 15-min free consultation / assessment before their treatment.

 

Benefits of regular Treatments

  • Helps break the chronic pain spasm cycle while reducing associated muscle tightness
  • Stimulates / increases circulation of blood and lymph
  • Releases endorphins (= body’s natural painkillers) that uplift and help to feel good / better
  • Helps to eliminate wastes from body
    • thus drink a glass of water AFTER a massage etc treatment, and a lot of water during the day
    • drinking a lot of water can also help to prevent e.g. bladder and kidney infections, and dementia (which can also caused by dehydration of brain)
  • Assists with absorption of nutrients into body
  • Helps with prevention of soft tissue injury and rehabilitation of injured soft tissue (e.g. OOS [= Occupational Overuse Syndrome] or RSI [= Repeated Strain Injury])
  • Helps to reduce post-operative recovery period and speeds up elimination of anaesthetics

 

BEFORE receiving a Massage / Reflexology / Lymphatic Drainage you have to inform us therapists about

  • Your general health
  • Current conditions (e.g. hepatitis, blood pressure problems etc)
  • Current medical treatment / medication (including homoeopathy)
  • Past injuries / operations / conditions

I am looking forward to seeing you.
