Carolina Ruiz [Professional masseuse]

Carolina Ruiz is a gifted, qualified massage therapist with over 16 years of experience. She is passionate and adventurous, travelling the world and learning different techniques from great teachers and tribes, before founding MAU Motions in 2012.

Carolina began studying healing arts in her home country of Colombia, becoming interested in holistic studies while growing up with her entrepreneurial family, who sold oxygen and physiotherapy equipment to hospitals and private clients. Since then she has been fully committed to working within the healing arts field. She has worked and trained as a holistic massage therapist across South America, the UK, Europe and East Asia, living with an indigenous tribe in Colombia and having plenty of adventures along the way.

Carolina has used her vast range of experiences to combine a unique combination of skills in her practice, and has created her own refined system of transformational bodywork, massage and healing called Thorough Touch Technique. Carolina’s speciality is working with yogis, sports professionals and performers. A keen sportswoman herself, she understands the strains that can be put upon the body and has a deep understanding of how to treat other people’s injuries.

As well as starting her own business, Carolina has collaborated with community arts projects, yoga festivals and charity events within the UK area such as Bernie Grant Arts Centre, Haringey Arts, Arena Artists, ZU Studios and at events including Glastonbury festival, Morning Glory Village, Yoga Rave, Nine Lives Yoga, Ibiza Yoga Festival, Tackle Africa, Paddle Around The Pier, The Famous Spiegeltent, Circus La Soiree, Not Fit State Circus, La Clique at the Edinburgh Festival and Brighton Fringe Festival.

MAU Motions [What we can do for you]

MAU Motions is inspired by the power of touch, cats and the Egyptian mythology, which combine to give you a unique experience. Each massage is tailored to your specific physical and emotional requirements and is a workout as well as a relaxing encounter.

MAU Motions was set up in Brighton in 2012. Inspired by cats – specifically the Mau breed from Egypt – and they way that they communicate through body language, MAU Motions focuses on the power of touch to create a unique personalized massage experience. Carolina has been trained to read each client’s body to provide exactly what they need to be pain free. Here, it is as much about the physical and anatomical side of massage therapy as it is about holistic and spiritual healing.

As well as offering Carolina’s signature massage style, Thorough Touch Technique, services provided at MAU Motions include Aromatherapy, Tibetan massage, Indian head massage, reflexology, Thai oil fusion massage, Thai yoga massage, Sports, Deep Tissue, Reflexology, Holistic massage, Facial Rejuvenation and couples massage.

MAU Motions also offers a variety of wellbeing retreats and workshops with some of the most reputable massage, meditation, nutritional and yoga educators. We can help to organize weekend escapes, a week long retreat or an intensive teacher training session. You can also hire the mobile massage team to set up a chill-out zone at events such as conferences, festivals, offices and team building days.

We want you to feel relaxed and re-energized, so please feel free to bring your own music to soundtrack your personal MAU Motions experience.

"Carolina’s technique was thorough, energetic and deep, with yogic forms and rhythmic connections. Although tender yesterday, today I feel like a new man. I highly recommend her skilled and thoughtful touch. "

-Anna Gladwell

""I booked time with Carolina of Mau Motions during a very stressful and upsetting time for me. Her reception was warm and her care palpable. Under her skilled hands my body let go deeply of tensions and holding. Although the work was deep I didn't ache after as Carolina used a variety of techniques to encourage- rather than force release. I would absolutely recommend Mau Motions to anyone in physical or emotional distress and fully intend to see Carolina again, her healing touch is a gift I am glad to be offered" "

-Enna Andrews

""Carolina is an incredible massage therapist and a wonderful person. She is full of happy energy and has a smile that could light up a dark day. I have had many different types of massage therapy all over the world and Carolina has taken the best of these and created her own style which is a masterpiece. She is the Bruce Lee of massage therapy. Highly recommended!""
