Rosamund Edwards - Practitioner Profile
Hi I'm Rosamund. My goal is to make a profound and positive difference for you every time we work together, and I love having the opportunity to make a difference.
I practise kinesiology, integrative bodywork / neuromuscular massage therapy and energy work. I draw on my various physical and non physical training to provide functional assessment & physical bodywork along with holistic balancing of your whole being. I facilitate greater physical & energetic alignment and comfort. I encourage my clients to set goals for their well-being at the beginning of the session and work in synergy with you towards facilitating that outcome.
While I no longer practise generic relaxation massage, I hope you find the sessions relaxing and rewarding.
The work I do is completely individual to you. For over 12 years of clinical practice I have worked with a large range of physical conditions and energetic imbalances to facilitate greater wellness for my clients. My intention is for you to leave each session feeling revitalised, with a renewed sense of connection within.

Here is a quick insight into the 3 types of work I'm now offering, and you can find more information in each service description under 'Book' in the main menu.
Kinesiology (Kin-easy-ology) is an amazing modality (or rather an 'umbrella' rather than a single modality) which is both time-efficient and beautifully connected to your body/ emotions/ mind and soul to work in perfect harmony and attunement to what you need.
Kinesiology brings together Eastern and Western philosophies and methods. The practice looks beyond symptoms or named dis-eases, instead working to identify and clear the underlying core issues and stresses. The balancing is done on the premise that our bodies have innate information and healing ability.
So how does kinesiology work? We seek direct feedback via muscle testing from your body and energy system as to what is needed, which is totally individual to you. We use a series of questions and a sign language to enable the body to ask for the kind of balance that will be most helpful. We then dive into one or more 'modes'. We could end up doing a full meridian/ muscle balance for you, looking at liver function and/ or diet, doing a colour balance, looking at sabotages, or many other options - all led by your body & energy system.
Kinesiology is not limited to dealing with ailments, conditions or diseases. Balancing the body, mind and soul brings alignment to every aspect of your life, resulting in wholeness, vitality, happiness and enabling pathways for you to discover and reach your potential. Examples of topics we can work on in a dedicated 90 minute session include, but are not limited to:
Postural imbalance and / or muscle pains
Digestive, liver or systemic imbalances
Feeling a bit stuck in an area of life
Long term problems that haven't shifted yet
Goals in relationships, health, finances, etc.
And/ or anything else you have going on!
If you're not sure of the priority 'issue' right now, we can also muscle test to find out.
Remote Kinesiology sessions are also available via zoom and this offers a very time-efficient way of working with you in the comfort of your home. See some reviews on the website here. Simply email me after booking to let me know you'd like to work online.
Integrative Bodywork incorporating Neuromuscular Massage Therapy (see video below) which is a follow-on qualification from therapeutic massage. Far from being a generic massage, the work I offer is goal-based and tailored to you. During a bodywork session I utilise a range of analysis & treatment techniques to address any deep tension, myofascial/ muscular pain & tightness, trigger points causing aches and pains, and addressing injury. I offer rehabilitation from and prevention of injuries, and work with you on clearing physical and emotional trauma from the body whilst increasing your body connection and awareness through tools like breath work.
I'm including a little bit of kinesiology with bodywork sessions as required, to help uncover the source of imbalances and find 'easy' corrections for muscle pain. The issues we uncover can be physical, structural, emotional, mental, electrical, nutritional, spiritual, bio-chemical or energetic.
Natural Healing Science I've also completed a 3 year diploma attuning to working in the human energy field from the NZ School of Natural Healing in 2003. This has formed the basis of my ongoing intuitive work, which I've continued to develop through my clinical work with clients and in my own life. Many of my clients have benefited from a life-changing awakening of their energetic make-up and I've often been providing one-on-one tuition during these sessions to help with energy management and sustained awareness of subtle energy. This in turn enables feeling healthy, self-supported and connected. It's not easy to describe the profound sense of peace which can arise from certain sessions that usually occur at pivotal times. The energy work is 100% led by your higher self.
Background My past includes a career of 15 years as a full time I.T. Business Analyst / Project Manager working on large systems implementation projects, and I've also worked as a ski instructor, waitress and in retail.
Some Client Reviews
"Hey Ros 😊 I just was thinking of you before, as I navigate through this first week with 3 kiddies on school hols - I appreciate the work you have done on me and made me more aware to surrender into my life for exactly what it is right now and enjoy it and feel the joy within, it’s still a process for me but I feel I’m in a better place because of what you have done for me and bringing awareness to that. Just wanted to say thanks for that it def helps me setup for the next few weeks of kids and our trip. Here is my testimonial:
Rosamund is an incredibly intuitive and talented practitioner, she is deeply connected to her knowing and spirituality. She has a deep source of knowledge and skills she can draw up to create long lasting change, which really helps you transform into that next level. I really enjoy working with her remotely and in person, and am lucky to have her support and guidance through this journey."

"Wow, I had the most incredible neuromuscular massage with Ros from Be Vibrant Massage Studio! I’m currently heavily pregnant and suffering from crippling back pain which is causing me pain 24/7, I could barely even walk!! After a session I can move easily and pain free, her holistic approach is incredible! So happy to have found such an incredible professional I just had to share!!"
- Katrina, Auckland
"I wanted to thank you for giving me the possibility to say goodbye to my grandmother. After 5 days of doing the session with you, my grandmother died. Thank you for letting me see her and feel her by my side, being so far away. It was incredible. The session was amazing. You are sunshine. Thanks for bring me the light."
- Mercedes, Tauranga
"I had a remote kinesiology session with Rosamund which took an hour and a half to complete. I experienced my body realigning itself and clearing energetically. Rosamund was able to assess accurately areas of energy blocks and the cause for these blockages. This assessment was followed by clearing and opening new pathways. After the session, I felt deeply grateful, peaceful and integrated. I highly recommend her service to you."
- Osher Osher Oriyah, Sound Healing and Expressive Arts therapies
" I just wanted to thank you so, so much for my and [friend's] massages yesterday. We both spoke afterwards of how in-tune you were with our needs and the specific focus you gave our bodies to help heal and recover. So so good and felt very cared for. We both feel better for it today. You have a very special gift and you share it beautifully."
- Shona, Auckland
"I’ve received two massages from Rosamund. I’d had pain in my shoulder for 18 months that was mostly gone after the first massage and continued to release in the days following. I will definitely be back for more and highly recommend Rosamund as a massage therapist.
Thank you so much! Love your massage work. :-)"
- Caroline, Waiheke Island
"I'm excited to share about a treatment I received recently. I've suffered from frozen shoulder for a while now, and the doctor had advised there was not much to be done physically and recommended seeing a sports doctor for cortisol. Rosamund has relieved the near-constant ache I had around my shoulder blade in ONE session and my mobility is much improved. She uses an amazing combination of myofascial (and painful) release techniques, mind-body connections and seems to hone in exactly to the sore spots but is gentle in her approach.
I cannot recommend Rosamund highly enough. I will certainly be returning."
