My Specialisms

Personalising Aromatherapy blends to compliment any therapy.
Using hot stones to quickly break up tension and find deeper rooted tension to tackle with deep tissue techniques.
Providing effective, grounding and enlightening Reiki Healing.
Making people feel at ease and open to accepting my therapies.

Approach to Therapy & How I Work

Like any therapist, I have developed my own unique style in massage, using an array of techniques including hands free massage, pressure points, hot stones to relieve tension and energy work to detect pain and discomfort.

I aim to understand what are the core root issues for a client attending and then personalise their treatment accordingly.

I believe in providing plenty of time for clients to get a thorough consultation, their agreed time of massage and then time to relax afterwards. This helps both myself and the client have a more quality, chilled experience without any pressure to rush around.
