a short message from flo
Hiya, I’m Florian, a London-born masseur with a passion for travelling. I’ve landed back in this city and started Padma Tree Holistic to offer Raynor Naturopathic Massage, as well as Siddha Kundalini Healing.
My journeys around the world brought me to Australia, South-East Asia and on my next travels, visits to India and finally Colombia has allowed me to experience lots of different styles of massage and meditation techniques. Having what could be called an unhealthy life style before and at the start of my travels I finally found my feet allowing me to fall out of old habits. But it was the experience of two major road accidents, one of which being struck by a scooter while on foot in 2013 and the other being in an unfortunate taxi-truck collision in 2015 that opened my eyes to the true therapeutic nature of massage.
After these physical traumas including a broken femur and severe whiplash I once again returned to the UK. Being somewhat of an active person, I was no longer able to maneuver as I used to with lots of physical pain. Social anxiety crept in a lot more noticeably, and I found myself falling back into old patterns. Luckily with the joy of receiving Massage, combined with the learnings and initiation into Siddha Kundalini Healing, I was able to recover from these physical traumas, and also discover how to heal myself psychologically through a better body connection.
Raynor Massage in particular came into my life which incorporates deep tissue, shiatsu, thai, reflexology and acupressure. Targeting the root cause of my problems and working with my breathing Raynor has helped me to release old and new tensions, connect to my physical side, and let go of mental traumas holding me back and disrupting my energy.
Now, fully mobile again, more focused and calmer yet more energised then I have ever been. I have built the confidence in these techniques to start my own path and share these gifts I have been given.
As I have been walking my path I have had new teachers and opportunities come into my life. Crystal Light Reiki being one of them, I have so much gratitude for this coming to me now, keeping me in right direction and incorporating into everyday life and my work. I look forward to working with these new energies and the teachings they will bring!
I put my heart into every session and truly believe every one has the right to feel good and free of tension!.
A big focus for my massage service is being as eco aware as possible. All towels and oils are organic, and I wash with chemical-free laundry detergent only. I’m always open to new recommendations for being greener, so please get in touch if you’d like to chat eco-friendly ideas.
If you are interested in training in Raynor Massage yourself. It is an amazing course! My teacher Dave Taylor is great and had been trained by Brandon Raynor himself! Have a look at About Raynor Massage for more details.
raynor naturopathic massage
Raynor Naturopathic Massage is a holistic system of bodywork developed by Naturopath Brandon Raynor. It is a deep tissue massage with origins in acupressure, Ayurvedic Massage, Chinese Medicine, reflexology, Shiatsu, Thai and yoga breathe work. There is a special emphasis on the Eastern medical theory that the physical body is a gross manifestation of a subtle body composed of a life force (chi or prana), emotions and other subtle energies, and that each are related and have an effect on each other. Physical or emotional stressors can lead to a blockage or disruption in the flow of chi or prana can cause bones to shift out of place or create tension in the body.
Raynor Massage’s goal is to release muscle tightness by finding where the ‘anchor’ points where tension is held. These points can be found by following the problem area to usually the feet, hands and head. Raynor works on these points first to truly be able to release tension which may be causing you pain or discomfort.
siddha kundalini healing
Siddha Kundalini Healing is the connection and channeling to the ancient Indian Siddha tradition of healers and spiritualists to bring a very powerful yet gentle form of energy healing. With the use of a Crystal mandala and sacred geometry to enhance the process, this treatment helps open channels and realign your chakras. This is done by removing blockages and relieving the being from physical, mental and emotional tensions caused by negative energy, day to day stress and pains from past traumas which do not serve us anymore.
