About Me

Deepa LivingI am an advanced clinical sports & remedial massage therapist, reflexologist and associate Forrest Yoga teacher.  I have worked both privately and for the NHS as a complementary therapist in oncology care.

I have worked with a range of people from all walks of life: new mums, people with cancer and terminal illness, people who have suffered physical and emotional trauma.  I have trained with leading practitioners and trainers in their fields including the JING Institute of Advanced Clinical Massage, Tony Porter (Advanced Reflexology Techniques), Mauricio Kruchik (Maternity & Pregnancy Reflexology) and Ana Forrest, the creatrix of Forrest Yoga.  My experience and continued training has helped to develop my intuitive sense for locating restrictions in the body where, often, there is an emotional aspect attached.

As a Forrest Yoga teacher, my treatments focus on improving body awareness and creating more space and freedom in the body.  There is always a new layer to unveil about the body and always something new to learn about anatomy. It is fascinating how the emotions and memory impact our physical bodies.

I am a registered member of the Complementary Therapists’ Association (CThA).
