Holistic means whole.
It’s an ancient way to see people in their totality. Body, mind and emotions are all connected. Personal circumstances, environment, relationships and how we see the world all impact our well-being. We cannot live a fulfilling and happy life if we are out of balance, dissociated and fragmented.

Holistic therapies can also work well alongside conventional medicine and help them to resolve some issues where medication may have failed.
My passion is to listen to a clients’s needs and I work holistically to help you to become aware of yourself and to find your own way to restore a sense of balance on a Physical, Emotional, Mental and Spiritual plan.

Deep Tissue Massage is a therapeutic massage that works on the deep layers of muscle tissue with long and slow strokes to treat the muscles deeply. Pressure is controlled and adapted to your preference.

It is perfect for general tension and stress, and for paying attention to specific areas of the body with chronic aches and pain, muscle tension, supporting injury recovery, increasing mobility, bringing oxygen and blood back to the muscles.

Swedish Massage is the classic and most common type of massage treatment, perfect to relax both body and mind.

A combination of smooth firm, strokes on the upper layer of muscles, calming the nervous system, increasing blood flow, assisting the lymphatic system to remove toxins and supporting the immune system and restoring the body's energy level.

Ayurvedic Indian Head Massage has always played an important part in Indian life since ancient times and it continues to grow in popularity due to a considerable increase in stress levels in the present day.
IHM is given fully clothed, with or without oil and work on the shoulders, neck, head and face, focusing on the three higher Chakra -  Visuddha (Throat), Ajna (Third Eye) and Sahasrara(Crown).
The treatment ends up with the chakra balancing.

It brings relaxation, strengthens hair and helps conditions such as 
TMJ tension 
Reduce anxiety 
Promote a feeling of calmness 
Increase energy levels 
Release “happy hormones”.

Cupping therapy comes from Chinese Medicine even though it has an acient origin. The first sign was found in Egypt and it was used in many countries around the world. 

Cupping works on both the muscles and on the meridians of the body at the same time, and It works well alongside a massage to help to relieve acute and chronic pain. It’s also a short stand-alone treatment.

Cupping works as a deep tissue massage increasing blood circulation, removing toxins like lactic acid to the affected area of the body and it also activates the immune system and acupuncture points.

Cupping is painless therapy and consists in applying cups on the body for 10 to 20 minute.
The cups suction the skin allowing more blood, with oxygen and nutrients, flowing freely into the treated area stimulating the natural healing process.After a cupping treatment some marks, like bruises, can appear on the body and they can stay for some days.Those indicate a good treatment has been achieved.

Cupping is good for helping with all the muscular - joint problems around the body  and to manage anxiety and stress.

Every treatment starts with a consultation to understand your needs, your habits on a daily basis, and possible contraindications to create a bespoke, personal treatment plan, with a combination of organic blended oils.

I work with a range of techniques, depending on your needs including traditional Deep Tissue techniques, Swedish techniques,Trigger Point Therapy (TrP),Neuromuscular techniques(NMT), Stretching and Cupping. 

Reiki is an energy healing technique developed by Mikao Usui in Japan. Its principle is based on the belief in a Universal energy life force that makes everything alive.

Rei  -  Spiritual, Universal Soul, Universal Consciousness. 

Ki   -   Vital Energy, Life Force (same as Chi, Qi and Prana).

The Reiki practitioner is a channel for the universal energy into the patients to assist them in activating their own natural self-healing powers and promote physical and emotional well-being.

The Usui Reiki Method of Natural Healing is gentle, non-invasive and safe so everyone can benefit from it at any age, from babies to elderly people. It is easily adapted to most medical conditions and for pregnant women. Reiki is given fully clothed in a peaceful environment and regular sessions may help to promote a healthier life.

Some benefits of Reiki treatments:
