Tulamassage is a meditative form of bodywork in which the practitioner follows and glides along the natural pathways that run through and around your body in time with specific rhythms and pieces of music like a choreography.


It is practiced on a futon, you are without clothes and covered by a sheet and/or blanket. 

Using oil the practitioner moves through an unbroken, hypnotic and wave like continuity of movements with rhythmic, deep strokes that create oscillation throughout your body. 

Tulamassage liberates unconscious emotional and physical tension throughout the body, while stimulating your nervous system, lymphatic system and digestive system and bringing your body back into an open and balanced symmetry.

Tulamassage is practiced with the specific intention of creating an effective balance between deep/strong and caring/tender strokes to liberate your body, soothe your heart and still your mind. 


Tulamassage practice focuses on deep liberating release rather than just relaxation, detailed searching, fluid continuity of movement and rhythm, clarity of line, the use of body weight rather than muscular strength, the use of breathing to aid release, genuine caring and finding the optimal effective balance between strength and tenderness.

Prenatal massage (also known as antenatal massage) relaxes tense muscles, eases sore spots, improves circulation and mobility, reduces swelling in the legs and arms (due to normal excess fluid retention) and will help you to feel generally relaxed, calm and well.


The application of natural oils will help your skin become more supple which helps to prevent stretch marks and dryness.


Massage should only be given to pregnant women after the first trimester (0-12 weeks) and with the approval of your mid-wife.  She will be able to advise you if there are any reasons why massage may not be appropriate.


Evangeline works specifically to the needs of pregnant women and their changing bodies. She is trained in prenatal massage and adjusts her techniques accordingly.


She will introduce you to relaxation and breathing techniques to help promote peaceful, restful sleep and an increased sense of well-being during your pregnancy.


Please call Evangeline for a consultation and to make an appointment.  Pregancy massage is available in London, Cobham and Monmouth.

Tula yoga for children

How children benefit from Tulayoga


Children often live in a very full world of school pressures, constant lessons and learning, video games, sport competition etc,.all of which are wonderful and developmental in their own way, but they can also be stressful for children. 

Giving a child the time and space for a meditative practice, encourages them to find and appreciate the calm place within themselves...the axis of their being. Once found it can be a place for them to return to and be nourished for the rest of their adult life.


Tulayoga is a simple, elegant and joyful practice that allows a child to return home to their body and their calm centre.


Weightless, trusting and calming, your child can experience the relaxation of Tulayoga.  No prior knowledge or experience of yoga is required.  Evangeline will gently guide your child through the meditative therapy gaining their trust and confidence.


They are sensitive little beings.



More information


Tulayoga is for children from 5-11 years old*. 


Before the Tulayoga begins Evangeline will discuss your child's health and the benefits the child will experience from receiving a Tulayoga session.


Each session takes no longer than half an hour and is conducted in a peaceful, tranquil environment.  The parent will remain present throughout. Evangeline recommends that you allow up to an hour of your time to avoid rushing.


Evangeline will gently explain that the aim is to achieve calmness whilst having a joyous, happy experience.  Laughter and smiles is always a part of Tulayoga for children!

Evangeline’s initial training as a beauty therapist and reflexologist was the start of a journey towards developing other intuitive healing therapies which have become the basis of her work today.


In 2008 Evangeline spent a year in India studying the philosophy of Ayurvedic therapy. She also spent a month in the Sivananda ashram in Kerala learning yoga and its wisdom.


In 2014, Evangeline spent a month in Bali with Louka Leppard, the founder of TULA (Tulamassage and Tulayoga).

Through her ongoing training with Louka Leppard, Evangeline has developed her understanding of the healing power of touch and the language of the body.


Evangeline has also worked as a Tula practitioner with Alan Dolan at his retreat in Lanzarote where he uses transformational breath work to treat and help people with trauma, stress, depression and anxiety disorders.

In May 2016 Evangeline was part of the team of bodywork specialists led by Louka Leppard on his Agean Boat Retreat.


Evangeline's approach focuses on individual holistic treatments, attuned to your specific needs. She advises that you have some quiet time yourself after the treatment.


About Evangeline Di Michele

Evangeline Di Michele



"Evangeline's Tulamassage left me with a sense of peace and confidence in myself to go forward into the jungle that life often presents."

Dr Zara Bieler GP


"Evangeline is highly professional, she works from her heart centre and I feel very safe, nurtured and cared for in every session I have had with her."

Linda Evans RN


"When I first met Evangeline I was 5 months pregnant. She released significant tension in my back and neck which I had been carrying for months, maybe years. She is truly unique in her ability to connect with what is happening in your body and her Tulamassage sessions are filled with warmth, integrity, honesty and humour!"

Julia Hawkins


"Evangeline is a highly trained, gifted and intuitive therapist. When I first went to her for Tulamassage I had not long experienced a great shock in my life.  I felt traumatised and I think I was close to breaking down.  The four Tulamassage sessions she gave me released me from the acute stress I was experiencing both in body and mind.  It was a wonderful, soothing and uplifting experience and gave me a feeling of being restored and able to move forward with more peace than I could have hoped for. She is a true healer.

Elizabeth Walsh


"I have had cerebral palsy since birth and I'm in a wheelchair. With Evangeline's Tulamassage she made me feel safe and nurtured. I never felt judged, only accepted. On massaging my legs I felt this amazing connection as if they were alive."

Rebecca Evans

Tulayoga for children with Evangeline Di Michele


"Tulamassage felt different to that of a traditional massage, the whole experience felt like a complete continuation, almost like a circle that kept moving with no start or end point. I can only describe it as a shoal of fish pulluating across the skin"

Evangeline trained with Louka Leppard, the founder of Tulamassage and Tulayoga. His primary interests are in the devotional, ceremonial and meditative aspects of touch, in the release of held emotion and trauma through the release of tension in the body and the healing power of tenderness.


Louka's teaching is powerfully healing... a complete mirror of the power of touch.
