Swedish Massage, Myofascial Release Massage, Trigger Point Therapy, Deep Tissue Massage, Aromatherapy, Independent rep for Neal’s Yard Remedies Organics.
I have over 20 years experience as a therapist, my aim is to get people out of pain (be it physical or emotional) and moving properly again. I initially trained in Swedish Massage and Aromatherapy. Over the years I have added many different massage modalities to my skill set, finding now that Myofascial Release techniques blend so well and are very effective in reducing pain and restoring mobility. The Jing School of Advanced Massage, where I have done most of my CPD training, calls this ‘Massage Fusion’. My massage treatments will always vary slightly depending on how you are feeling on the day – there is no ‘one size fits all’. I have a loyal and long-standing client base, many of whom have been receiving treatments from me since I started back in 2001.
As an aromatherapist too, I usually use some sort of essential oil or blend, either in the massage oil or in a diffuser (myofascial release work doesn’t need oil). I create bespoke blends for you, to be used in various ways at home too – such as in a diffuser, in a bath/shower or cream/lotion preparation, in a roll-on for your pulse point, as a room/aura spray. The possibilities are endless. I trained additionally with KatsEye Therapeutic Blends, using the pre-blended range of highly effective oils in many of my bespoke creations for my clients.
I have been working with Neal’s Yard Remedies Organics since 2014. I use their massage oils as well as their fabulous skincare products in my Organic Facials, and am an Independent Re-seller too. I carry some stock in my therapy room, as well as an online shop containing the whole range of products.
I work from a lovely private clinic space in Elstead, Surrey. It’s a little oasis of calm in a turbulent world, looking out over fields with a wildlife feeding station just outside, frequented by a family of fat squirrels, two cock pheasants (wild) and their wives, and numerous pigeons and other birds.
My working days are Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays. If you are housebound I may be able to come to you on Thursdays. Late appointments up until 8pm are available on Mondays and Wednesdays.
My Covid precautions are still very much in place: I will be masked, and the room is thoroughly aired and sanitised between clients (there is always a half-hour gap to facilitate this). I undertake regular LF tests, and appreciate it if my clients do too.
I like if possible to have an initial conversation with prospective clients to gain an idea of what the issues are and how they might be addressed. This is free of charge and saves valuable time at your appointment. I also have a brief health questionnaire, and obviously need your personal details in order for you to be covered by my professional insurance. This information is kept safe and is not used for any other purpose.
Costs: 1hr: £65, 40mins: £48, NYR Organic Facial 50mins £60 (half price when added to a massage – that’s a fabulous way to really relax). Myofascial Treatment 1hr20mins £80, or course of 3 to fully re-balance you, £210.
