Is a complete & unique style of massage, combining acupressure, gentle stretches, joint mobilisations & deep tissue techniques. It utilises feet, hands, thumbs, forearms, elbows & knees to manoeuvre the recipients body into passive stretches, allowing the breath to lead the movement, then let go of the body into the outbreath. TYM therapeutically facilitates the effective release of fascial restrictions, long held tension caused by stress & illness, by stimulating the organs & other parts of the body via Sen or energy line work. Eve also integrates her knowledge & regular practice of yoga within the massage.
Mainly works on the abdomen to detoxify, transform unprocessed emotions, assist digestion, remove stagnation, improve circulation & elimination and thus strengthen the body’s systems & internal organs, such as the heart, small & large intestine, lungs, liver, gall bladder, spleen/pancreas, stomach & kidneys, as well as the nervous, immune, lymphatic & circulatory systems. It can also help with structural misalignments of muscle tissue & viscera, thus aiding better posture. Gynaecological issues can be addressed as well.
I massage throughout all stages of pregnancy on a comfortable futon mainly in side & seated positions. Working on the floor is a very grounding & spacious experience. It helps me work with gravity & fluidly move with & around mum in a symbiotic dancelike flow. Before 3months the massage is more gentle with balancing energy line work & fewer stretches. In the 2nd & 3rd trimester the firmer stretching & deeper acupressure work can bring great relief. I usually work with herbal compresses, which are warmed aromatic pouches filled with nourishing herbs, applied over the body in combination with oils to encourage greater relaxation & therefore deeper more effective bodywork.
Closing the Bones Postnatal Massage can be given within hours of the birth and 5-6 times more within the first 40days postpartum, known as the sacred time. It helps to put the bladder, uterus & pelvis back in place, reducing hip issues, pelvic instability and leaking energy. The massage also stimulates blood flow, cleaning, renewing, moving fluids, hormones, tonifying muscles, tissues and the immune system, thereby assisting more efficient healing. The ritual of wrapping with rebozos gives a safe space to mum to feel nurtured and powerfully release any heavy emotions associated with the birth and motherhood.

Platinum Health is a company that sells Transformational 10 day Cleanses based on superfood supplements, shakes, a little food, a lot of fluids, approx 3.5 litres/day to help flush out the toxins. The products are organic, vegan, non GM and mostly gluten free – all high quality ingredients. A healthy diet can maintain optimal gut flora and harmony especially if you are aware what your system needs,as and when. But over the years the digestive system can get sluggish as our lives are harassed by stress, over-eating, wrong eating, wrong combination eating, thus affecting how well our digestive system can process, absorb and evacuate nutrients and food matter. A cleanse helps to give the digestive system a rest, clean out old stuck faecal matter, thus allowing for better more efficient processing and absorption. A cleanse is a great way to loose weight, gain more energy, feel brighter, more focused, more intuitive, calmer and thus more balanced and healthy. I distribute the cleanse and it can be purchased on the following link – www.platinumeurope.biz/wellbeingwitheve. It works when followed and is like pressing a reset button, although the real work happens after the cleanse when re-integrating the changes … this is key.
Eve is adept at relieving many different conditions, like back, shoulder, neck & knee pain, sciatica & sacro-illiac pain, headaches, MS, women’s & digestive issues, scar tissue & post operative care, … with her calm, nurturing intuitive touch & over 18yrs experience.

My number one massage therapist & one of the few who can accurately read my body & work intuitively.
Phillippa Asher – Ashtanga Yoga Teacher
Thanks for a great massage. I feel great afterwards and my practice this morning was great. There was a noticable improvement in lots of my postures this morning and my body didn’t feel tired as it usually does on a friday after 4 days of practice in a row. I managed Ardha Baddha Padmottanasana on my rightside this morning no problem! That’s down to your treatment to free up my hip. With that little nudge along hopefully I’ll now be able to free the hip up a bit more myself in my practice. You are Fab!
Gareth – Ashtanga Practitioner & Feld Runner
Eve is a wonderful therapist. When she massages me she is completely in tune with what I need and puts so much energy into releasing all my knots and tensions. Her massage is powerful, intense, deep and mindful. Her contrasting techniques show her years of experience and I feel totally relaxed, with a deep feeling of release during the massage. The massage evokes beautiful sensations for me and feels like an outer body experience because by the end you feel so relaxed, light, released yet energised.
To receive a massage from Eve Khambatta is a therapeutic as well as blissful experience. She combines a confident technique with unerring intuition, and one feels in perfectly safe hands. She leaves you feeling leaner, taller, more balanced and immensely grateful.
I can thoroughly recommend Eve. I originally went in to see her as my back was so bad I couldn’t stand up straight. I was sceptical
As I was asked to lie on a cushion matt on the floor and almost walked out but she persuaded me to stay and thank goodness I did.
I almost ran up the stairs after an hour with her. I have since continued to book with Eve to keep my body in tune and injury free.

I’m a 65 year old woman and two years ago I fell heavily whilst running with my dogs. I was in a pretty poor state and despite chiropractic sessions every 2 weeks and some times every week, I could not seem to improve. However I was recommended to Eve Khambatta for thai yoga massage. Eve worked really hard on me to get me back on my feet, at one stage the left hand side of the body was numb, arms and legs, no amount of chiropractic manipulation worked, but Eve managed to release the muscles in the neck and I got the feeling back in my left side. Eve also recommended that I take up yoga to improve my flexibility and strength. I joined triyoga which has excellent teachers and lovely studios. I am very grateful to Eve who has changed my life and I have not been to a chiropractor for nine months. Thank you Eve.
A massage with Eve is such a delight, a delight for your body and your mind. It is an active massage, you feel the benefit of it for weeks.
Eve found and relieved with no hesitation the points, the knots which blocked my low back and my legs for years. Her accuracy and expertise are truly amazing.
It took me a long time to find somebody to practice the abdominal massage. For years my stomach was very tight, painful. Eves’ chi-nei-tsang made wonders on it, no pain anymore! A massage with Eve is more than a simple massage, it gives you back the freedom of your body. I can’t wait my next session!
A few words in praise of the wonderful Thai Yoga Massage sessions available at The Disability Foundation. I approached my first session not quite knowing what to expect. As a longstanding yoga enthusiast I thought it might be a 1:1 yoga session. Quite wrong. All I had to do was lie quietly on the padded floor mat and relax, allowing Eve to work her magic. Acupressure points first, then moulding the muscles into submission, all the while Eve gently stretching and pulling the muscles allowing yoga postures to develop throughout the session. Lots of deep breathing and only on the exhalation is the body ready to be placed into the wonderfully releasing yoga postures. There is even time for a gentle massage. I have found the sessions extremely beneficial for my chronic back pain. Following spinal surgery in Sept 2004, I was left with severe contraction of the muscles in my right leg, swelling, pain and the inability to walk comfortably. I often felt I needed to be stretched on a rack. In the nicest possible way I feel Thai Yoga Massage has done just that! I could never have achieved the same results by exercising myself. I now have regular sessions and continue to feel the benefit.
