A Port in the Storm
I like to think my treatments are a small port in the storm; a place to take a break from the daily pummelling of life. You may come in feeling a little battered and broken, but my aim is that you'll walk out feeling put back together. Calm, at ease, relaxed and feeling like you can breathe again!
You may come just as a one-off, or you may come every week. (Many do - these treatments are addictive!) It doesn't matter - what matters is that you leave feeling better.
A Unique Approach to Massage
I'm a been a qualified holistic therapist for over 20 years. I specialise in massage, I teach massage. I own a massage school!
So why massage? Although I am qualified in several holistic therapies, I realised a few years ago that everyone was choosing to have massage. And not just any massage - without fail, all my clients book to have my signature massage.
This is a style of massage I've developed over the years to provide the kind of treatment that seemed lacking everywhere else:
A massage that works deeply, releases muscle tension and ALSO creates the space for the body and mind relax.
My signature massage is deep when necessary, uses slow, sustained pressure; is detailed, focused AND relaxing.
If you're looking for a massage that gives exactly the right pressure, in exactly the right places, that is soothing and kind - but not namby-pamby; this is the massage for you!
Oh...and if that's not enough, you can also have it with hot stones too.
DETAILED AND FOCUSED
I'll get at every single one of those niggly knots that somehow other therapists seem to just sweep over.
DEEP, SUSTAINED PRESSURE
You know that feeling when an achy bit just needs PRESSING?! And you end up contorting yourself around door handles and worktop edges just to get that delicious feeling? Well now you don't need to - I'll find those spots and apply just the right pressure to not only feel amazing, but also to relieve the aches and pains long-term
RELAXING AND SOOTHING
It's totally possible for a deep tissue style massage to be relaxing too.
The body needs to be persuaded to relax and let-go, it shouldn't be beaten into submission. A massage shouldn't be a battle with the body and it absolutely doesn't have to hurt. Anyone who tells you, "No pain, no gain" is wrong!

Relaxing foot pressure to balance and heal the body
Reflexology is based on the belief that each part of the body is interconnected and that in the feet, there are reflex areas corresponding to all the parts of the body. Pressure is applied to certain parts of the feet in order to promote relaxation and healing elsewhere in the body.
Not only are symptoms treated, but also the causes of symptoms.
It is a gentle and relaxing therapy that works on many levels; soothing, calming and balancing the entire body.
After a treatment you may find that your tension is reduced and you find it easier to relax. You might also notice yourself sleeping better and your mood improving.
Reflexology does not claim to be a 'cure-all' but I numerous different disorders have been successfully treated by this method.
My Reflexology incorporates the the powerful techniques of Holistic Healing, with Fascial Release and Reflexology to work more deeply into both the energetic and physical systems of the body.
The relaxation of a Reflexology treatment with the added "blast" of energy healing, along with the physical unwinding of the fascia. All carried out through the feet - a truly holistic treatment!
Gentle therapy to rebalance the body
Bowen technique. A healing, often miraculous, life changing hands-on-therapy which seems to be revolutionizing the healthcare world.” The Daily Mail
A Bowen practitioner once said to me, " Don't learn this technique! Clients respond and get better so quickly, it means that you're constantly looking for new clients!"
So, of course, I learned it...
Bowen is the "gentle giant" of the holistic world. A deceptively light touch, belies a very powerful treatment, Bowen therapists treat the body as a whole rather than just a set of symptoms. They use gentle, rolling moves over precise parts of the body using the thumbs and index fingers in order to trigger the body’s natural healing responses. Working with the nervous system and the connective tissue, the bowen moves encourage the body to re-set, re-align and heal itself.
There is no manipulation of hard tissue and no force is used or needed. This simple and powerful technique can help relieve all kinds of pain. Treatment at regular intervals can help manage stress and maintain wellbeing.
It is so gentle that it can be used on anyone, and Its ability to re-align and balance the body, means it is effective for most conditions.
