My name is Claudia Torres and I am a fully certified bodywork therapist.
I offer a space for deep relaxation and healing, an atmosphere of peace and acceptance that allows you to connect with a quieter, deeper, truthful part of yourself.
Each therapy on its own is a way of self-exploration. A way to identify what factors in life are perpetuating problems and/or are causing current issues.
My Approach is to work guided & along with your body/mind/energy using breath work, soft & deep tissue and energy therapies to facilitate a state that would allow your entire body, specially the nervous system to open, clear and rebalance itself in an integrative way.
Apart from being really effective at treating stress and physical tension this bodywork emotional regulation perspective has also broader implications: you will discover that a sense of peace and well being is found turning towards your body in a compassionate way, tuning into its signals, and allowing it to be your guide.
When we are born healthy and we come into this world we move from the top of our head to the tips of our toes with every breath we take and as we begin to be a little older as long as we feel safe, there’s going to be a movement within us that is natural and easy.
But if we don’t feel safe for any reason, we start to put ourselves away and we do that with our muscles and our breath. We can start to make ourselves smaller than how we really are and we lose that natural ability, that natural flexibility we have in life, our natural resources to deal with our life situations.
When someone is really present with you, there’s something about that that you don’t feel alone with your deepest sensations. That’s really healing.
At the heart of my practice is the aim of assisting you into remembering who you really are and out of that, you'd find more possibilities of how you can live your life with freedom and at ease.
As a therapist member of the UK regulatory body, Complementary and Natural Healthcare Council (CNHC), you can be certain that I adhere to the highest standards of work, care and professional conduct. All of my treatments are tailored to your individual needs and a warm, friendly and confidential service is assured.
When we learn to nurture our relationship with our highly sensitive and wise body we open ourselves up to new ways of finding inner peace, inner joy and our true inner voice.
"My experience with Amanae has facilitated more transformation and resolution than any therapeutic technique I've tried in the past (there have been many!). It’s by far the most effective thing I’ve done to resolve lingering aspects of the past. It goes beyond talk therapy to uproot long held and unconscious beliefs. Each time I have a session, I uncover deeper insights and feel a huge release. Today, I feel less triggered by things that used to affect me. Amanae is supporting me through a new transition in life and helping me to be more accepting and flow with what is. I’m very grateful for this technique and my practitioner. I only wish I had found it sooner!"
"It is very hard to put into words my experience of Amanae and with Claudia personally. I have had two sessions with Claudia and a three-day workshop and even though I have had numerous inner work sessions facilitated, Claudia, and Amanae as a practice, stand out and are very close to my heart. Claudia has the rare gift of sensitivity while creating a very solid and safe container. 'Safe' being the keyword of my experience. I have no words how vital that safety was for me. That allowed me to feel and process some intense emotions and experiences. Truly transformative. Highly recommend."
"Personally, I have found amanae to be one of the deepest forms of healing I have experienced. Despite a personal background in light and energy work, I was still surprised by how profoundly amanae accessed and moved blocks long held within my body. For me, it's as though amanae was the key to unlock specific doors which other forms of practice haven't managed to do, further enhanced by the way Claudia holds the space making it incredibly safe to surrender to the process of releasing."
