Iwan Kushka


In a massage session my intention is to relax soft tissues, increase the delivery of blood and oxygen to the massaged areas, warm them, stimulate or soothe as appropriate and help the body and mind relax and let go into its natural state of ease and bliss.
Working initially with a client’s breath and the rhythms of their body I use kneading stroking and rocking with sensitivity and strength to allow what has been held to release and let go into the healing space I create for you.
Being thus stimulated the body comes alive and tingles with fresh energy and vitality. Tension evaporates. What was sleeping awakens refreshed.


Originally I trained as a lawyer in Brussels but I just couldn’t keep my suit on straight! I hung up my tie and went travelling. During those adventures I trained in massage and bodywork in both India and Thailand to create my own fusion. My ever deepening study of Tai chi, Qi gong and Shaolin Kung Fu also greatly inform how I use my own body and energy as instruments in my treatments. My usual massage gigs have been on various residential high-end detox retreats. I am now available for private treatments in Totnes and invite you to come and experience swift, deep relaxation on my table.
