This work draws on techniques from holistic massage and deep tissue methods – according to the needs of each session – for deeply relaxing and restorative treatments – as well as focused more remedial work. All sessions are structured individually.
Holistic massage draws on classical and Swedish massage methods, for nourishing and in-depth bodywork. This work involves a range of approaches, including deeply relaxing, soothing and calming techniques, – as well as more releasing and stimulating work.
Deep tissue massage involves a range of techniques, including ‘hands free’ , myofascial release, and trigger point release methods, to engage greater pressure, and access the deeper layers of tissue. This work can be deeply relaxing and releasing, and is also excellent for relieving persistent areas of tension. It is possible to work in real depth, without causing discomfort.
I use a range of largely organic, cold pressed oils, chosen for their extensive health benefits. These oils are unrefined, preserving the nutrients of the plants – and leaving them high in antioxidants, minerals and vitamins – all of which nourish the skin and body deeply.
Massage has been shown to significantly improve numerous aspects of health and well-being. This work particularly supports the immune system, muscle tone, skin condition, fascia and circulation, as well as improving sleep quality – and significantly reducing stress levels and anxiety.
Massage can help to develop a sense of safety and ease in the body – of ‘coming home’ to self and to body. People often find that regular work supports a greater sense of embodiment, and freedom in daily life.

These treatments involve specialised blends of essential oils, known as ‘synergies’ – selected for their beautiful fragrance – and extensive health properties.
Essences including jasmine, sandalwood and lavender – geranium, patchouli and nutmeg -create beautifully aromatic blends – for restorative and uplifting treatments.
