Tanga Okondo-Totterdell Zero Balancing

Tanga Okondo-Totterdell
Zero Balancing Practitioner in London

Tanga has a peaceful complimentary health practice in Dulwich, where she helps clients manage conditions such as lymphoedema, using the gentle technique of manual lymphatic drainage (Vodder DLT, Austria). She facilitates recovery from injury, pain and surgical procedures, using techniques that reduce scar tissue and muscle contracture (including kinesiotape and deep oscillation therapy). Tanga's body massage style targets musculoskeletal and postural problems, aiding deep relaxation - and her light skin techniques on the face address patterns of tension, encouraging a fresh and youthful look.

Approach to Zero Balancing & How I Work

Therapy is my fascination and my privilege. I create a quiet healing space for clients to unwind and re-energize, and believe both complimentary and conventional approaches to health can work together for the best results.
My vision is supporting the lymphatic (immune) system, facilitating optimal muscle-to-bone communication and holding the space for others to allow themselves to be exactly who they are.

"Tanga has created a haven of wellbeing at number 7. Tanga's presence is calm and reassuring and her manner of touch is soothing and seamless. During the time that I developed lymphoedema from severe eczema, the hour spent with Tanga would often feel like the only respite from my condition. As we had several sessions a week, initially, the swelling and inflammation lessened and the gentle exercises she gave me to do at home were very useful. Thank goodness I found Tanga in my hour of need- I cannot praise her highly enough!
