Healing From Within
I truly believe that the body has its own incredible abilities to protect itself from disease. Through my range of specialist holistic body treatments, I give you the tools to heal and protect yourself using your body’s own unique force and energy.
Massage provides many benefits to the physical as well as the emotional body. Having regular massages can bring relaxation, helping to improve sleep, and reduce anxiety. It can lower blood pressure, improve skin tone, relieve muscle tension and ease pain. It also stimulates the lymphatic system which boosts the immune system, bringing much improvement to health and well-being.
Reflexology is a gentle non invasive complimentary therapy, that uses the application of pressure to the feet and hands. It is extremely relaxing yet a very powerful therapy for helping to bring the body back in to balance and stimulate the body’s own healing response. It can help to greatly relieve pain, reduce anxiety, improve sleep and mood. It works really well with other therapies, particularly Reiki.
Reflexology starts from just £35 and lasts for 45 minutes.
Aromatherapy massage is a very gentle massage that uses the therapeutic quality of essential oils to bring healing. The oils are absorbed through the skin, inhaled and work on the body, mind and emotions in very specific ways to balance and relax, or stimulate and revitalise. A special blend of oils will be selected for you based on what your needs are at that moment.
Aromatherapy Massage options are as follows – Back, neck and shoulders for £35, lasting 45 minutes. Full body massage for £45, lasting 60 minutes. This can be increased to 75 minutes to include an aromatherapy facial for £55.Get Started

Lomilomi Sacred Ritual Massage
This is a Western Blended Temple Style lomilomi massage. It’s more than just a massage, this is the sacred art of Hawaiian lomilomi. The client learns how to connect with the breath to facilitate deep inner healing using breath work, body work, bone washing (massaging the fascia to release deep held trauma), laulima (energy work, similar to reiki energy healing). A ritual cleanse of the room is also given and prayer is offered. It is a deeply nurturing spiritual massage. The massage is more uncovered than traditional massage styles, but draping with a sarong is minimal (modesty is ALWAYS protected, I can provide paper underwear). Copious amounts of warm coconut oil is used and I will use sweeping long flowing massage strokes with the arms, across the entire body in wave like motions. This is a deeply sacred, spiritual, nurturing and restorative massage, that is always given with respect, reverence and acknowledgment for the indigenous peoples of the Islands, the Kahunas, the Ancestors and the Spirits of the land. It is important that the client has an understanding of this, and wishes to be an active participant in their healing and treatment. One is often drawn to this therapy because the body “knows” it needs it.
This treatment lasts for 90 minutes and prices start at £80.Get Started

Myofascial Healing Massage
A slow gentle “holding” massage. The fascia is the thin membrane that runs throughout our entire body, from the tips of our toes, through all the muscles and fibers, even into our brain! We store trauma and emotions in our fascia, which, if not released build up and cause pain and tension throughout the body. This massage is ideal if you have fibromyalgia or other conditions that cause pain, where deeper massage is uncomfortable. It helps to release emotions, and works on the nervous system, “dialling down” the stress response in the brain, and so is also good for people who have anxiety, or who have gone through trauma and need help releasing that.
Sessions last for 60 minutes and prices start at £50.Get Started
Hot (and cold - optional) Stones Massage
One of the most versatile, popular and relaxing massages, it is said that one sweep of the stone is worth 5 with the hand alone! The natural volcanic stones are heated and used with luxurious coconut oil to massage stress, knots and tension from the body. The stones, combined with the heat penetrate stiff muscles and warm deep into the surrounding joints. This treatment can be finished with smooth chilled marble stones to invigorate the skin, which is great in the summer and a must to soothe and clear the sinuses after a facial.
Stone Massage options are as follows – Back, neck and shoulders for £35-£45, lasting from 45-60 minutes. Full body massage for £45, lasting 60 minutes. This can be increased to 90 minutes to include a facial or foot massage for £65.Get Started
