Indy River

Indy is an holistic therapist with over 16 years experience working with massage, trauma processing, energy work and group facilitation.

As a therapist, they are deeply caring and passionate about holding space for the entirety of a person in every session, physically, emotionally and spiritually. They are sensitive in listening to what your body needs, and they enjoy working slowly and thoroughly. They work intuitively and love to invite in different modalities depending on what is needed in the moment. They are qualified in Ayurvedic Deep Tissue (Ayurbalance), Sharon Wheeler’s ScarWork, Pregnancy and Postnatal massage, Myofascial Release, Deep Tissue and Reiki. They are midway through the Bodymaster Practitioner Diploma. They also hold an MA specialising in Indigenous methodologies of Storytelling and Creativity as part of holistic healing.

They have been practising bodywork most of their life, having started learning at a young age from their mother who was a massage and aroma therapist. As well as their qualifications, they credit much of their learning to curiosity, practice, intuition and from plants and traditional healers in working with plant medicine. They observe spiritual practice in meditation, ceremony and energy work, which all inspire their bodywork.

Indy enjoys working with all bodies, and is especially passionate about safe and accessible bodywork for all marginalised folks. They are a trauma informed practitioner and hold a safer space in their treatments for anything that needs to arise. As a parent to a young soul, they also understand the toll that pregnancy and child-raising takes on the body, and they enjoy working with all bodies during the pregnancy and postpartum process. Indy has worked with many people over the years, supporting them with finding a sense of embodiment and release from chronic pain, trauma, emotional and physical blockages and feeling relaxed and safe in a therapeutic space.
