Claude Simard and Jill Banwell
Visiting Practitioners

With over 23 years of experience, Claude is an internationally acclaimed massage specialist. He has helped people to recover from physical and emotional issues, and specializes in remedial massage to treat physical conditions. Claude is also a massage trainer, meditation teacher and workshop leader. In his signature psycho-energetic treatments he uses his highly developed sensitivity and intuition to reconnect people with their inner child so they can access deeper levels of healing.

Jill discovered the healing arts over 15 years ago. This life journey has taken her into the fields of healing, yoga, massage, meditation and Tarot.  Jill has made pilgrimages to sacred sites and natural wonders all over the world, which have facilitated her to become a more open channel for healing energies. As a therapist, teacher and workshop leader she has worked with people in Europe, Asia and North America, taking pleasure in gently guiding them to experience a deeper, more harmonious level of life.

Deep Tissue Fusion Massage Treatment
This oil massage realigns deeper layers of muscle and connective tissues using stronger pressure to release chronic tensions. If you want to mobilize a stiff neck, or to relieve back pain, leg muscle tightness, or tense shoulders, then this could be the ideal massage for you. After warming up and relaxing the muscles Claude will use direct deep pressure, concentrating on areas of tension, to break down adhesions and restore normal movement. Classic deep tissue techniques are used together with the stimulation of specific acupressure points to give your body maximum relief.

Shiatsu & Acupressure Massage Treatment
This massage therapy supports and strengthens the body’s natural ability to heal and balance itself. The energetic lines and acupressure points of the body are stimulated to tonify your internal organs using Shiatsu massage techniques. Claude works on your whole body to improve joint articulation, relieve muscle stiffness and calm your nervous system. If you have any physical issues this treatment delivers effective natural pain relief. This kind of massage is also very helpful in aiding detoxification and stimulating the digestive system.

Psycho-Energetic Massage Treatment
Claude developed his signature Psycho-Energetic Massage Therapy for you to be able to access the healing power of your Inner Child. During the massage Claude will guide you to reconnect with this part of yourself that has a lot of energy and is full of life. This therapy helps you to come in contact with lighter, more playful energies, so that you can easily let go of stress and tensions. This treatment gives the opportunity for profound emotional rebalancing so you can feel happier and more connected with the flow of life.

Intuitive Massage Treatment
Holding a nurturing space that encourages you to relax and let go, Jill intuitively uses a combination of Swedish and Thai bodywork techniques to massage your body so you can release tensions at the physical, emotional and mental levels. You may also receive some Reiki healing as part of your massage treatment if you wish.

Crystal Healing
During the treatment healing crystals are placed on your chakras (energetic centers) to benefit all levels of your being. While your body, mind and spirit absorbs their high vibrations Jill gives you hands-on reiki healing. This healing session cleanses, energizes, calms and rebalances your system according to your needs.
