Bernadette van Jaarsveld (Jacaranda Holistic Massage Therapies)
I’m Bernadette and I run Jacaranda Holistic Therapies. I’m a proud South African. But Norfolk has been my adopted home since 1997. For the past 7 years, I’ve been perfecting a wide range of techniques to bring calm, relaxation and pain relief to my clients.
I believe that human touch can positively affect a person – both physically and emotionally. I didn’t set out to become a massage therapist. After having my son, I took him to baby yoga and massage to reduce the stress I felt as a new mother. I instantly saw the benefits, so decided to train myself. Since then, I’ve done a lot of training.
I’ve found that massage can help with chronic pain issues, as well as overall wellbeing. I specialise in holistic massage. The word holistic has been taken to mean many things.
For me, it means treating the body as a whole. I treat whatever your body tells me. And sometimes your emotions.
While I offer specific treatments, I prefer to tailor it to your individual needs. I love being able to help someone. It’s a wonderful feeling seeing the difference when people walk out to the person who walked in.
