STEVEN SMALLWOOD

HEAD THERAPIST

I have trained at both the famous City Lit, overseen by the stringent City & Guilds educational body, and at the London School of Massage. I'm lucky to have found an occupation I love and proud that this shows in my ability to give each and every client a massage which addresses the reasons they booked but always tries to go one step further.  

I'm a member of the CThA (Complementary Therapists Association) and am fully insured. My training included many aspects of health and safety, including hygiene and cleanliness. It also dealt with privacy, comfort and care - as everyone's situations and cultures differ. 

Not everyone that visits me comes with aching muscles or knots... some have stressful lives and need a relaxing moment in their otherwise hectic day... others book for a well earned treat that's just for them, good for the soul.

My days at the Lodge are Mondays 10am to 3pm, Wednesdays 3pm to 8pmFridays from 10am to 8pm and Saturdays from 10am to 3pm.

To book your appointment, please call Reception on 020 7231 1088, find us on the MindBody app or email at: steven@thelodge.space

Mario.jpg

MARIO DE SOUSA

MANUAL THERAPIST

Mario De Sousa is a Traditional Japanese Shiatsu Therapist in methods of Namikoshi and Seiki Meridian Shiatsu, also has qualification in traditional Thai Yoga & Trigger points massage.

"I believe there is truth in the saying that if the mind is weakened the body consequently suffers. In order to treat the body effectively, one has to treat the mind and vice versa, but a connecting link is necessary so that one can help the other. That connection is rooted in our inner healing force; in our ability to activate communication and communion between the mind, body and spirit and definitly with any doubts i found in traditional Shiatsu a powerful tool to reach that equilibrium & natural aliment and as a therapist, I see my role as facilitating health, wellbeing and balance through the modality of Shiatsu; however the true power to heal always rests in you.“

Are you suffering aches, pains, stiffness, fatigue, stress or injuries? Would you like to feel relaxed, energised and ready to face better days? The therapeutic treatment Mario offers is tailored to your specific requirements, to help restore your vital energies, working through Meridians bring it back into equilibrium and natural aliment of your mind & body.

Mario’s day at the Lodge is Monday from 10am to 3pm.
