Hannah Tapner
Indian Head Massage


Even in her teens, Hannah was very interested in alternative therapies. She had been studying art for 6 years, when in 1997 Hannah discovered yoga at a time in her young adult life that was particularly difficult. She realised how profound regular practice of yoga was, helping to maintain balance even in tough times. This was a catalyst for her: she wanted to share this with other people, the natural joy and lightness that she felt (realising also that it is a good friend in happy times too).

She has been teaching since 2001, whilst combining that with working as an holistic therapist which has given her the understanding of how individual our bodies are. She teaches with this sensitivity in mind.

In 2002 she qualified as an holistic health practitioner and has since gained her City and Guilds Teaching Certificate. She has taught classes in Indian Head Massage, Thai massage, introduction to complementary therapies and massage for young people with disabilities and severe learning difficulties. She has also facilitated and held workshops and retreats in New Zealand and overseas.

Hannah will lead a guided Indian Head Massage workshop involving massaging of the shoulders, neck and head. Pairs switch half way through so everyone will give and receive! (Massage will be done over clothes).
