Review: Breema





What is Breema?

Breema is difficult to describe. It's a new age kind of a cross between partner yoga and Thai massage. The idea is you feel fully present. This appealed to me as my head is all over the place. I'm never doing less than seventeen things at once. I have also been trying to eat mindfully, but struggling. You can have Breema done to you or you can practise Self-Breema.

Why have I never heard of it?

It's new to the UK. It's been around elsewhere for some time. For more information do check out the Breema website.

What happens during Breema? What does it feel like?

You know when you go to a spa, or a salon, and you have a treatment? You get an orange 17 year old making you feel more tense during a terrible massage because you know she is pulling disgusted faces behind your (fat, oily) back. Well, Breema is NOTHING like that.

There are no oils. In fact, it's not a massage. You are fully clothed. You feel safe, warm and loved. There is no judgement, no competition, you're just being.

Eva Brauner from Core Inspiration makes you feel at ease as soon as you meet her. You lie on a padded floor as Eva touches you with her hands, body and feet. She holds you, pulls gently, taps and rubs.

I have never experienced anything like it. I have never felt so relaxed. Afterwards, I didn't want to move. I felt utter bliss.

Where?

Luckily for me, Eva is based in Milton Keynes.

How much?

£45 per session. As a treat for yourself, or a friend, it's totally worth it. I really can not recommend Eva more highly. I LOVED my Breema session.

What else do I need to know?

Eva runs weekly Breema classes in Milton Keynes. For more information click on Eva's page in the Breema Directory.

Eva is also a qualified psychotherapist, specialising in the body.





Disclosure: Eva is a friend of a friend and offered me a free Breema session in exchange for this review.

  1. Have the same thing: my mind is also so switched on with the things i need to do. I need to learn to stop that! Investigating local Breema though: could be just what I need and Dh has been asking what I want for Christmas!

  3. This sounds amazing. I am a huge fan of reiki but never really mastered doing it to myself. And I too find my head is all over the place. I need "grounding" every now and again and this sounds perfect.

    1. @Mummy Barrow, I've never had Reiki, but yes, Breema is grounding.

  4. Wow this sounds fabulous! I need to learn to switch off too and this could help, wonder if I can find it locally?

  5. I love the sound of this, especially the not taking your clothes off bit which is what always puts me off massages. Like Mari I wonder if I can find it locally!

    1. @Mammasaurus, I hate that bit about massages. I'm always convinced there's a hidden camera filming me wobbling onto the bed...

    1. @Cakes Photos Life, yes, that's why a spa is usually just horrible. Breema, on the other hand, was completely comfortable x
