Hello, I'm Nikki - it's lovely to meet you!
I don't know about you, but I find going to a new massage therapist a bit hit or miss.
You never know what you're going to get.
Is it going to be all cold and clinical, with a radio on in the background, while a fake skeleton stares at you from a corner?
Yes it's an ok massage, but it isn't cosy and you can't relax properly.
Is it going to be all a bit "spa"? You know the kind - a nice relaxing vibe with candles and gentle music - but the actual massage is just a bit ineffectual. She chats to you all the way through. She doesn't really know which bits to press and when she does finally press harder, it just doesn't...DO anything.
Well here's what I can promise you if you come for a massage with me:
A massage that works deeply, releases muscle tension, using the right pressure in exactly the right places - and is ALSO incredibly relaxing.
My signature massage combines deep, sustained pressure with sensitivity and awareness to encourage muscles to relax; easing out your aches and pains and feeling delicious - like you're being ironed out and magically put back in a happier body.
The thing is, I know about massage. I have been a massage and holistic therapist since 1999. For the last 20 years, massage therapies have been my life and livelihood; first purely as a practitioner, and later as a massage teacher and spa trainer.
I live on Anglesey with my three loves; Simon (my partner), Storm (my dog) and the sea.
Massage is my fourth love. I believe if everyone had a daily massage, there would be world peace!
When I'm not doing treatments in Aberffraw, or teaching in Manchester. You can probably find me getting blown away on the coastal path somewhere - with my dog, Storm.
All my treatments are tailored to your individual needs and always include a full consultation regarding health, lifestyle and well-being. I am registered with the Federation of Holistic Therapists and I work to the highest standards. So you can be rest assured that you are in safe and professional hands when you visit.
I believe passionately in excellent standards of training and education for therapy practitioners. I own Orchid Massage Academy in Manchester where we teach professional massage and holistic therapy courses; creating great therapists is my life’s work!
I have personally found holistic and alternative therapies invaluable in my own life and still get regular treatments. After all, how do you go about healing others if you are not centred and balanced yourself?
Nikki is the best masseuse, healer I've ever met.
She seems to instinctively know where all your pain/hurts are and fixes you. She is amazing.
Nikki's hands are like magic.
She pays close attention to what is going on under your skin and finds the aches and pains then works diligently on them to soothe them away.
With perfect pressure, muscle spasms melt away under her touch.
