My fascination with massage began at an early age, when massage was very much part of my childhood in Germany. My other passion are languages, and I hold a degree in Applied Languages and Cultural Studies from a German University. After working for 12 years as a translator, I decided to eventually train in Holistic Therapeutic Massage with the Sheffield Centre for Massage Training (SCMT), which laid the sound foundation for a person-centered, mindful approach to massage. In 2007, I made the switch from translator to massage therapist and have never looked back. Making this fascination my career did, however, only get me more hooked on the subject, and I have since trained in various forms of massage related bodywork.
What I would like to achieve with my work is, on the one hand to raise the client’s awareness of their own bodies and where they are holding tension, and on the other to provide them with the possibility of relaxing, unwinding, de-knotting mentally and physically. I believe that massage can help to break out of learned postural patterns, and we may do a postural analysis to see if we can get a better picture of where you are holding your tension. By integrating effective techniques into the massage session, you will get a longer lasting benefit and relief from soft tissue related conditions. Aftercare advice may include advice on self-massage to tackle trigger points and particularly tight areas in between sessions.
My training includes therapeutic and deep tissue massage (including trigger point techniques), myofascial release, seated acupressure massage, the Dr Vodder method of Manual Lymph Drainage (MLD), and holistic sports & remedial massage. Research and continuous professional training ensure that I am up to date with my knowledge.
As a receiver of plenty of massage myself, I know that client comfort is an important prerequisite to be able to fully let go. You can expect hot towels, a highly adjustable table, and of course plenty of cushions for support – not as a luxury, but standard.
I started work as an assistant teacher on SCMT massage courses in 2008 and was formally accredited as a massage tutor by the Massage Training Institute at the beginning of 2013, after having completed a teaching qualification (CTLLS).
At the Therapy Room, I also deliver workshops on how to look after your lymph-system, facial self-care, safe stretching with muscle energy techniques, and more.
Skills What Our Clients Say About Eva Weltermann “Fantastic, healing, informative, restorative, encouraging, balancing! I would have recurrent headaches, maybe lasting 3 days every 1-2 weeks. This was linked to muscle tightness in my upper back and into my neck, likely as a result of stress at work and historical climbing muscle fatigue. I was hoping that Eva would follow her own style and become in tune with my aches and pains as well as the flow of how the difficulties potentially linked together.Eva massaged me before I realised I was expecting my first baby and then continued right through the pregnancy, and now again after the baby. It has been a journey to feel how my body and mind have changed and she subtly reminds me to pace myself!I also hope to try the scar tissue release, after the unplanned caesarean section I had at my daughter’s birth. This will be another step in helping to heal the physical and emotional body through holistic massage.As a result there is a definite decrease in headaches and a close second – time for myself!” Joanne Read More What Our Clients Say About Eva “Just wanted to let you know that I have been practically pain-free since my massage last week. Thank you so much”. BH Read More What Our Clients Say About Eva “I was suffering a lot from neck and shoulder pain and had tried physio but found it was making it worse. I was then recommended to you by my PT. It has been enlightening, learning about how to listen to my body more and encouraging self healing with doing some manipulation at home which has helped me a great deal. I now have no more pain and my recovery from my neck and shoulder has been speedy. The treatment was spread out to compliment my chiro appointments and I found that they both complemented each other in aiding my recovery.” Angel Read More What Our Clients Say About Eva “Thanks for your expertise this afternoon. You are terrific!” SM(Client makes excellent progress with debilitating shoulder pain, she had been on painkillers for months. A course of treatments with a chiropractor made no difference. After three treatments, and self-massage advice, she does not need any painkillers any more, even with the heavy workload coming up to Christmas.) Read More What Our Clients Say About Eva "I had suffered for many months from severe muscular pains, especially in my right shoulder, which was almost totally frozen; I also had pain in my neck and back. I started a programme of treatment with Eva Weltermann. Eva worked with remarkable thoroughness on my problems by deep massage and manipulation which was more successful than any other treatment I had in finding the sources of my problems and tracing through their pathways. Moreover she supplemented their effect by a number of home exercises which were very beneficial.I am now pain-free and am pleased to recommend Eva’s work with enthusiasm." Peter, Barnsley Read More
