A bit about me...

I have always had an interest in all things ‘alternative’. My approach is very holistic and I see the connection between physical, mental, emotional and spiritual health as vitally important in keeping a person well.

My journey began over 7 years ago when I stepped into my first massage class and I haven’t stopped learning yet.

I am passionate about bringing you the most nurturing, healing experience created in a safe space for your well-being.

Reiki Healing

Reiki – Universal life force – The healing energy of everything. The channeling of energy to promote relaxation, well being and healing on a physical, emotional and spiritual level. It can enhance energy levels and is a perfectly safe, non-intrusive practice.

During a treatment, you lie down on a couch or remain seated and just relax! You remain fully clothed and I will place my hands in various positions around the body, concentrating on any areas I feel need more attention.

During the treatment, you may experience various sensations including:

The space created is a safe space to allow total healing to take place. It can be used alongside conventional medicine with no contra-indications.

Thai Foot & Hand Massage

Thai Foot and Hand Massage originated around 2000 years ago. This ancient form of treatment was originally only practised by Buddhist Monks, who still continue to teach it today. It incorporates elements of Shiatsu – Chinese Massage – Reflexology and Yoga.

Thai Foot & Hand Massage is an energizing massage of the lower legs and feet that involves hands on stretching and massage to “open” Sen (energy) Lines. Thai Foot & Hand Massage stimulates reflex points on the hands and feet which correspond to the internal organs of the body to promote general health and well being.

The benefits of Thai Foot & Hand Massage

Improved circulation and toxin removal

*Please note that as the treatment involves stretching and some deep tissue massage, I am unable to treat anyone who has the following:

Severe arthritis, very high or very low blood pressure, contagious skin disease, ie Athlete’s Foot, fragile bones, pregnant ladies in their first/third trimester.

Oriental Face Massage

Oriental Face Massage (facial rejuvenation) is a natural facelift through massage. It is designed to be a gentle, non-invasive approach to looking younger! Combining techniques from Indian and Japanese facial massage alongside acupressure, it works primarily by freeing constrictions both within the facial muscles and (associated) connective tissue. Tension can build up within our facial muscles from the pressures of everyday life without us realizing it. Certain thoughts and emotions become ‘locked’ into our muscles, which cause them to contract and ‘dry up’. This in turn can lead to the formation of wrinkles as the face loses its muscle tone and elasticity. The massage incorporates the neck, face and scalp. It improves circulation, removes toxins from the face improves your complexion, thus helping to minimize the ageing process. It’s relaxing, stress relieving and calming. You leave with a sense of well being and equilibrium.

Some possible benefits to be experienced include:

*Please note that the following conditions are contra indications to facial massage:
Eczema, Psoriasis, Cold sores/open sores/wounds, fresh bruising, any recent dental problems/recent dental surgery, unstable blood sugar levels, recent head/face/neck injury, cancer – please ask for clarification.
