STILLNESS IN MOTION with Natalie Wittwen – Neuromuscular Kinetic Massage Therapist, Tai Chi instructor and Massage Teacher/facilitator.

“I touch people because I care about others, our health, what we do and our impact on this earth. These simple foundations are what brought me here. I am not your typical massage therapist. After 19 years of experience and hundreds of clients, I have learnt that Massage Therapy is SO MUCH MORE than a relaxing experience at a spa. Don’t get me wrong, there is a definite need for that experience. I see soft tissue as more than merely a physical element, but as a deeply complex, neurologically driven part of who you are. I use this understanding to work WITH you – not ON you – to create change that works. Combining bodywork techniques that I have learnt (Swedish & Aroma Massage, Trigger Point Therapy ,Myofascial release, & more recently Kahuna Massage), I listen with my hands, feel the earth below my feet, and draw on my Tai Chi flow in order to connect with the client and together we harmonise our flow to a note of joy and tranquillity! I am passionate about life and how I can make a difference no matter how small."  Natalie loves to share, besides teaching Tai Chi, Natalie facilitates  'Re-connect with Touch' workshops for absolute beginners that want to learn how to connect with another  (See under listings under HOLISTICA EVENTS - next 2 day workshop 14 & 21 August 2021 /  1 day workshop 16 October 2021)

So whether you have a healthy active body or are a desk-bound professionals, persons with eating disorders, prenatal Mums and older persons, Natalie will provide you with an effective treatment for reducing stress, pain and muscle tension. Natalie is available for massage bookings at two venues (Constantia and Milnerton Ridge)or in the comfort of your own home. With the use of blended aromatherapy oils/balms, Natalie will custom her treatments according to your needs, using a combination of techniques(Swedish, Trigger Point & Myofascial Release) and offers Prenatal massage. There is also an option of Indian Head Massage in which the client remains clothed.

Natalie  is also a Wu Style Tai Chi Chuan instructor. Tai Chi is the harmonious flow of an ancient eastern martial art, practised mainly for its health benefits for body and mind.  Tai Chi taps into the eternal spring of vitality and longevity.  Group classes offered outdoors (Summer 2020/2021) in Little Mowbray, Oranjezicht Cape Town and Milnerton Ridge.  One-on-one classes are available online via Zoom. 

Taijiquan is a form of movement in which stillness and movement co-exist. In movement there is stillness. In stillness there is movement. Taijiquan prevents and fights diseases, strengthens the body and with continuous training you can defend yourself against a stronger attacker. When practicing Taijiquan, efforts are made to get a calm heart/mind (xin) and a still spirit(shen). The movements unfold naturally (ziran) and are smooth and graceful, like moving clouds and flowing water. In this way, you can convert the never ending stress of work into a state of stillness. The reduction of stress immediately reduces some tiredness and weakness, which can be eliminated in the long term. Taijiquan helps weariness and leaves one feeling refreshed and relaxed. This is an application of stillness.

People participating in these  self-cultivating exercises, find their body posture awareness increases, learn more about optimal balance and embrace the breathing and relaxation techniques taught, thus maximising the feeling of calmness in our busy modern lives and increasing chi-energy!

“Moving mindfully and with ease, brings about a graceful way of being present as we flow through the natural course of life”

I am almost 60 now and have enjoyed having massages over the years, but the day I met Natalie and had my first massage with Her became a turning point in my life. I now go regularly and my body, heart and soul have benefitted tremendously. Natalie’s massage techniques are so beneficial to my body that sometimes aches and for my nervous system. I go into complete relaxation mode and am able to zone out and just enjoy the wonderful treatment. Natalie is extremely knowledgeable about the human body, is very well trained and has a heart of gold. She loves what She does and is a gift to all Her clients.

Re-Connect With Touch Course

5
My mother and I completed a two-day massage course with Natalie and were so happy with our new-found skills! Natalie is a knowledgeable practitioner that incorporated anatomy, history, demonstrations, movement and practicals into the training. She is compassionate, enthusiastic, approachable and gives an amazing massage! We are so excited that we will now be able to help each other when we are suffering with tension and migraines. I would definitely recommend her courses if you are looking to attain a new skill and to help others.

I had the most wonderful Kahuna massage from Natalie. She is a gifted healer, creating space for deep relaxation. She intuitively knew just what was needed and left me feeling peaceful and extremely grateful. I highly recommend her and can't wait to go back for another treatment :)

What a blessing to have met Natalie at the Noordhoek soul retreat. I had only just relocated to Cape Town and I was physically and emotionally spent. Natalie's massage was not only Revitalising but an emotional release too. Her beautiful energy is a gift that she shares through her work. I will only recommend Natalie for massage work. Thank you!

Tai Chi for balance

I am 91 years old and have had a hip replacement. My son in law helps me to get on Zoom so I can attend online classes with Natalie. She is the highlight if my week. She has a caring way to help me with balance and my fear of falling.

Natalie’s Massages 5*

5
Natalies massage is both unique and amazing. I have never had anyone put their heart, soul & energy 200 % into what she does. The combination massage which includes the KaHuna principals, her music and the care she genuinely shows is amazing. I invited her to do the massage treatments on my Noordhoek Soul Nourishing Beach Retreats in March and all reviews from my survey came from the participants was 5*. Thank you Natalie. You have great sharing & teaching abilities whilst also displaying warmth and intuition.

Natalie is gold not only for her knowledge of the body but in many ways. I have been coming to her for about 5years and always leave feeling invigorated and able to face another month. I am always amazed at her incredible knowledge of the bodies physiology and insight into what I need. She is very professional in her approach to everything and is now not just my therapist but also my friend. Thanks for your healing Natalie here’s hoping you go from strength to strength

Visceral Transmutation

5
Having been burnt by a multitude of so called spiritual people and having recovered from the experiences, I hold my ability to sniff out BS quite high and Natalie is Gold. Natalie is an authentic and truly powerful being with a pure heart for service. She is guided yet doesn’t take it for granted and utilizes her abilities for goodness and healing. She has helped me process so much deeply held pain, shame and fear with her touch and presence, encouraging the deep shifts I needed to make my life more fulfilling and abundant. She taps in deeply and surfs the waves of healing with humility and joy. I’ve had incredible spiritual experiences and realizations during our session that left me feeling reborn. She is one of my most treasured teachers/healers and she has a special part in my heart.

A healing presence for the mind, body and soul

5
Being in Natalie's company is healing in itself. I feel blessed to have met someone who is blessed with a healing touch. 2 years ago I was hit by a motorbike while walking to the grocery store. I have had multiple brain surgeries, I was paralysed and I have lost my peripheral vision from the brain damage. Returning to Cape Town I came across Natalie's details as I was looking for a masseuse in the Constantia area. Having had many cranial surgeries and a broken neck, I was a little nervous to receive massage and manipulation of the area, but Natalie's approach and aura is one of calm, healing comfort. It is clear Natalie is living her calling. I recommend Natalie to everyone I meet in need of a masseuse; I buy her massage vouchers as gifts for my friends and family and as soon as I feel a stiffness anywhere I message Natalie. Time with Natalie is an investment in well-being. She has inspired me to take up tai-chi. Please don't ever stop working...we need your healing hands!

Exceptional masseuse the best we have ever come across

5
We were in Cape Town for three months and after only one massage session with Natalie we decided to purchase a further block of ten. Why because they were the best we had ever encountered, Natalie was extremely professional in finding out what we needed, each session was invigorating yet calming. Her delightful and sensitive manner was such a bonus to an overall fantastic experience. We cannot recommend Natalie more highly she is an exceptional masseuse the best we have ever come across.

STILLNESS IN MOTION with Tai Chi

5
I started Tai Chi with Natz over 6yrs ago, I was looking for something that held onto its roots and essence and that is what I got. It takes time, but flexibility, martial understanding, awareness and consciousness all improve, a better sense of self is drawn out. Tai Chi is definitely a reward of patience and discipline and Natalie is a great teacher/coach in this regard.

My one stop body & soul maintenance regime

5
This is one lady that I DO recommend to everyone I come across…… I met Natalie in a Tai Chi class in January 2000 and since then, Stillness in Motion has been my one stop – feel good – de-stress – body & soul maintenance ‘regimen’ – actually, that should say it all! Combine an incredible knowledge of physiology, energy galore, traditional Wu tai chi background and a gentle, loving soul and you have the most awesome therapist/teacher on the planet. So, whether it’s a relaxing massage / or myofascial work…. Wu style Tai Chi Chuan…. Or Pilates/Fitness training……if you’re not trying at least one of her modalities….you’re really missing out Nats, thank you my friend, therapist, sister, teacher, magical medicine woman….for everything that you are

"Special Touch"

I have been coming to Natalie for your ‘special touch’ massages for quite a few years. I always look forward to the dedication and special care that you take with my treatment. It is my ‘pampering’ time and I always leave feeling as if I am floating on air. Thank you, my friend!!

Healing Power

5
I had the pleasure of having bodywork (massage) done by Natalie Wittwen this past weekend and what an incredible experience!! Not only does my body feel years younger but my soul feels more at peace now than it has in years! Even another blue Monday didn't get me down this time! I had no idea about the healing power massaging has and realized this is just as vital as eating healthy, sleeping, exercising and even breathing. My life, along with all that I deem a necessity, has changed and I will never look back :) Thank you again from the bottom of my heart xxx Tanya

I have been coming to Natalie for many years now and it is definitely a monthly highlight. She is an exceptional massage therapist and has complemented it with advanced knowledge of anatomy. She can adjust her technique to accommodate specific needs. She creates a peaceful environment and the whole experience is one of tranquility and spirituality. I can highly recommend her - you will become a regular soon!
