My name is Dharma Daws, yogi, bodyworker, poet, lover of nature, & Life itself.

Is Corporate Massage ‘it’ for you or do you apply your skills in private practice? If yes, how and where?

Corporate massage is one hue on the coloured palette that I share & give service to the world.

I also teach Yoga & Meditation classes, workshops & seminars (& have done so internationally for the last 20 years) in a wide variety of settings including studios, health & social services, schools and corporates.

Further I practice at a health clinic, specialising in shiatsu therapy (having practised worldwide since 1997).

It takes a special kind of person to work as a touch practitioner. Why do you do it?

I’ve always been someone that people have been drawn to since I was a young child.

I find it natural to provide a space where people can be heard, feel safe to ground and come into their body – to support what naturally wants to occur in their bodymind for health, healing & wellbeing.

Touch is a great way to communicate & connect in a clear, simple & nourishing way.

How does what you do every day contribute to the greater good of your community, or thinking big, the planet!?

It firstly bestows the skill of connecting & coming back into our bodies, its topography & slowly inhabiting & embodying that space with awareness.

The contribution is in its simplicity, old worthies, heritage & grandeur of living respectfully to & honouring the seasons of nature, community & one’s life.

We often tend to forget to be human, and how our humanity needs the humanity of us & others in order to show up at all – providing the gift, gratitude & practice of being alive.

The skill of being at home is found there.

And importantly, because you’re a normal (super) human, what is the most normal thing about you?

That one should never wash wools or one silk superhuman cape in a hot wash cycle! Or that toast is the easiest thing to burn in a kitchen!
Realistic facetiousness aside, normality is being in nature, splitting wood, cleaning the chicken pen, writing poetry, playing tabla & piano accordion (not together though!), dancing around the house……
