Eva Weltermann SCMT Dip., MTI, FHT, MLDuk, CNHC registered

Eva WeltermannMy 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.

What Our Clients Say About Eva What Our Clients Say About Eva "I don’t know whether it’s because of the work you did on my back yesterday but I had the best nights sleep for a long time last night. I know we discussed effects of massage in class but it is quite a coincidence. I actually feel pretty good today – my back AND my brain. :-)" TM(came with subacute lower back pain which had lasted about 4 weeks. Doctor prescribed painkillers. Work on trigger points in gluteus medius and piriformis, along with self-massage advice, set her on the path to recovery) Read More What Our Clients Say About Eva What Our Clients Say About Eva ”I was working in a stressful job that involved a lot of time sitting at a desk and using a computer.  The job was exciting and interesting and it wasn’t until I had retired that I noticed that my shoulder movements were limited and my wife commented I was developing a stoup.  I thought this was partly due to old age, but I had been involved with massage thirty years ago and thought massage treatment may help or at least prevent any further deterioration.  I didn’t have any reservations about working with Eva, especially after having had a recommendation from a friend.  Eva did an excellent job, not only has there been no deterioration, but a considerable amount of improvement.  I particularly like her style of massage, professional but individual and well tailored to my needs.  After working with Eva I now realise that regular massage is a very effective way of remaining healthy” RS Read More What our clients say about Eva What our clients say about Eva I've seen Eva for massage a number of times and have been extremely impressed, she's extremely knowledgeable and experienced and the results have been fantastic. I first visited whilst recovering from a severe back problem and was reassured by the approach and quickly developed trust that Eva would make things better rather than worse. I found the treatments extremely helpful and effective.  - Rob Read More What our clients say about Eva What our clients say about Eva "I had a session with Eva and she has worked some kind of magic!
