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.
Luckily for me, Eva is based in Milton Keynes.
£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.
