Libby Sheppard - Touch of Happiness Massage

Libby Sheppard

I’m a masseuse specialising in intimate touch. I’m also a sex and intimacy coach. I want to support you to feel more liberated, confident and relaxed with intimacy, touch and pleasure. I believe that really satisfying, nourishing and exciting sex and intimacy start with a foundation of safety and relaxation in our own bodies. In my sessions I want to help you to feel more; both physically and emotionally. I work with clients who have specific issues around their relationship to sex, arousal, body image and pleasure, or who just enjoy the luxury and intimacy of full body massage. My sessions blend massage, touch, sometimes body-to-body contact, breath work, mindfulness, coaching and talk. I also offer online courses in genital massage for you all to learn the secrets of giving and receiving delicious intimate massage at home! 

My own journey to loving and appreciating my body, and feeling sexually and spiritually fulfilled, has taken me through work as a stripper, a pole dance instructor, a personal trainer, recovery from addiction and exploration of many healing modalities. I’ve studied and trained in Somatic Sex Education, The Wheel of Consent, TRE and Tantric Bodywork (amongst other things).

My mission in life is to blend my knowledge, experience and fascination with the physical body, with my desire to create a healthier understanding in the world of sex, sexuality, arousal and pleasure.
