About Thea Hewitt

Bsc (Hons), Dip Law, Dip Mass CCNM 

Born in the UK, Thea moved to Christchurch in 2008 especially to study at the Canterbury College of Natural Medicine, completing a Diploma of Massage in 2010. She fell in love with working on pregnant women during the course and made it her goal to open a ‘Pregnancy Wellness Clinic’ one day, to remind modern women of a more natural approach to pregnancy.

 

Our Responsibility

 

We extend our holistic approach to the environment and the community.  We practice our family's motto 'Refuse, Reduce, Reuse and Recycle’ daily. We chose to use as little energy and water as possible here. We have a luxury compost toilet instead of a flushing one, to save water in these times of uncertain weather patterns. We’re proud to support products made in NZ.

 

The Yurt is made near Nelson and all our massage products are organic and NZ made. On our property we take active steps to reduce our environmental footprint.  We support Biodynamic farming and are creating a food forest to reduce our reliance on supermarkets and food miles.We support the 'Pay it forward' lifestyle with a jar at the door where clients who choose to donate, contribute towards giving a pregnancy massage to a woman at Pregnancy Help based in Wainoni, Christchurch.

We promise

 

To listen, to stay focused, to do our best to ease your pain in body & spirit and give you the best tools we know to empower you to help yourself live pain-free.

Thea is amazing! I spent 2 years seeing various physios and even an orthopaedic surgeon in regards to some recurring knee pain and had no real diagnosis.

One visit to Thea and she identified the source of the pain!

6 weeks later it was almost completely gone!

Thea worked at SportsMed in Lincoln and Sports Rehab in Halswell and massaged international sports teams during their time in Christchurch including The All Blacks, The Silver Ferns and the NZ Waterpolo team. This background has given her good experience with helping clients out of acute or chronic pain gained either from a sports injury, long-term postural issue or the normal pains of pregnancy.

Our Philosophy

 

The Little R&R Philosophy is to combine holistic and therapeutic massage with deeper clinical knowledge of how the body moves well.

 

In the practice of balancing and maintaining functional muscle movement we treat each client as a whole person, we don't just treat the area of pain.

 

As a general rule, where the pain is is not where the problem lies, we conduct a full postural assessment on each client to check if an issue starts from poor posture.​

Nestled in ten acres of countryside with two dogs, two ducks and many chooks, the Yurt sits among a biodynamic food forest Thea and her partner are creating. The Yurt is a wonderful space to have your aches and pains melted away.​

A Little R&R is based out near beautiful Tai Tapu in our eco-friendly property just 15 minutes drive from town.​
