Hi, I'm Pauline
I’m an Intuitive, Bodyworker, Reiki Healer, Tantrika, Sacred Intimate and Soul Dancer, based in Te Aroha, New Zealand. Over the last 8 years I have had the privilege of helping to inspire and empower over 2000 men, women and couples from all over the world, to show up and grab the juicy life that they deserve.
Nurturing Massage is the name I chose to represent me and the offerings I share from my peaceful rural studio. In the early days, the word “nurturing” would regularly come up when I would check in with my clients after their sessions. They would say that they felt “nurtured”, and this adjective so aptly described my style of bodywork, that it stuck…
To fully support my clients needs, I run carefully curated overnight stays, intimacy retreats, workshops and one on one sessions. I am also the founder of Soul Dance, a local community support group for women, and Inspired Intentions by Pauline my latest aromatherapy range for men and women.
It is my vision to create a space for people of all genders to become empowered, reconnect with their soulset and their heartset. Find their voice again, create and live a life of power, pleasure and purpose.
Do you need a safe space to heal, be heard or be seen?
Let me help you to explore the possibilities of a life filled with power, pleasure & purpose...
Vibrant & empowered beings create a magical path so that others may follow...
Let us have a heart to heart on an important matter…
- What does being empowered mean to you? Are you that?
- How strong is your connection to your sacred feminine or sacred masculine self?
- Are you at peace with where you are in life – relationships, career, belief systems?
- Do you look forward to each day with joy, anticipation and a renewed sense of purpose?
- Are you at peace in body, mind and Spirit?
- How confident are you at communicating your needs and desires to those that you love?
- Are you a survivor or a thriver?
- Are you ready to make change to take back your power and embrace your authentic needs?
- Are you ready to do what it takes to release your fears and judgements about yourself?
- Are you ready to reconnect with and awaken your inner warrior?
- Are you ready to show up and trust yourself?
- Are you ready to find out what you are made of?
A few personal things about me...
I am a Leo, fiery, courageous, compassionate and playful, which also makes me dogmatic, opinionated and proud, sometimes this works in my favour. Other times it can make me seem overbearing and bombastic. But mostly it helps me to be fearless and capable. The strength that comes from within, is here I believe to help, hold and nurture others. Us Leo’s protect our pride from attack and we fight, until the end… My family include a loving partner in Murray, a son, daughter and step daughter plus an ever growing menagerie of animals… including a cat, three dogs, three goats and three cows. Neither of which will become anyone’s dinnertime meal anytime soon.
Fancy, glitzy things do nothing for me, I prefer wholesome, free range and open space. Small spaces and small minds, suffocate me. While I can appreciate good quality, opulence and over indulgence, makes me feel ill. I am happy with just enough. Any leftovers or over abundance gets shared. I have been told, that I will never be rich, because I am always giving. This is fine. Having good health, safe quarters and a happy family life, is the only wealth I am interested in having. Having said that, I do have earthly needs and commitments like everyone else, so I do charge for my work.
I value honesty, integrity, kindness and passion. My love language is touch and acts of service, which is notable considering the career I have chosen. Being in service to give touch. Although, I have noticed that words of affirmation rate extremely highly for me too, at times… I feel deep pleasure within my soul, when someone refers a friend, or writes me a testimonial to tell me how much value they received, by working with me.
My sexual archetype is…
…shapeshifter, as I can flow quite easily between sensual, sexual, kinky or energetic depending on the energy or the person I am resonating with.
I love beautiful nourishing tasty food, the more I feel the love that went into the creation of the meal the better. My sleep is important to me, I look forward to blissful rest in a comfortable bed at the end of the day. I enjoy cuddling, making love and walking in the forest. I especially love swimming in sparkling clean rivers and oceans and its always better if I can do this in the nuddy….
I enjoy spending time in nature, appreciating the majestic beauty of trees as well as their energy. Some people get off on looking at architecture. I get a huge buzz appreciating the limbs, leaves and flowers that the plants share to sustain other animals. The sound of a bumble bee pollinating a flower or a native bird calling its mates, make my heart bubble over with joy, and noticing other animals, just trying to survive, only makes me feel more driven to protect. I feel connected to the cosmos when I look up at the sky, the moon or the stars.
Dancing and listening to beautiful music with friends or alone, settles my heart and helps me feel peaceful. When I do get some spare time, it’s a hard decision whether to spend it creating a new meal, communicating with the animals in our care or curling up and reading a book.
My other creative pursuits include painting, sewing, gardening, writing, and cooking . One of my deepest desires is to walk all the “Big Walks” around New Zealand, and swim and explore as many beaches, oceans, rivers and lakes as I possibly can.
Both Murray and I, love sharing time with down to earth, positive people who aren’t afraid to be themselves. As I write this we are all currently in Level 3 of our Covid-19 crisis here in New Zealand. I do believe the world as we know it is changing. I am hoping that we humans are going to come out of this experience with more love and empathy for the planet and for each other. I guess time will tell. We humans seem to forget so easily, and we live in a bubble thinking these things happen to other people, other beings, never to us… perhaps now we may be more aware that this isn’t the case. We are all connected, and we all live together in a symbiotic relationship, what one person does, affects the other and so on and so on…
