I am a holistic, intuitive massage therapist. I have trained in a variety of styles, but I currently prefer to work more gently with your body, whilst still addressing any hot spots you may have. I've found that in this space of deep relaxation, the body can do what it does best. Heal itself. 

We make a blend together each session based upon what you bring to the appointment. We consider not only the needs of your physical body, but your emotional, mental and spiritual needs too. In my experience, as we deal with all of you, a new balance is found.

I only use organic, fair-trade aromatherapy oils from suppliers I have an established relationship with.

The majority of my clients come for a gentle but powerful relaxation in a open hearted, kind environment. 

To book an appointment or speak to me call +44 777 609 1439

Once a month I have a day when the prices are lower: 1hr £30. 1&1/2hr £40.  The next one is Thursday 9th July.

My experience in aromatherapy:

Back in the mid 90's my sister sent me some top quality Geranium essential oil as a present in the post, since then I've been hooked on Aromatherapy and essential oils.

My particular interest is in their application for emotional, psychological and spiritual wellbeing, but it all began with 'the body' and my journey back to good health from a slipped disc in my upper spine.

Aromatherapy essential oils are particularly useful for;-

  • Respiratory disorders (chest infections, sinusitis)
  • Stress related conditions (IBS, muscular tension, headaches, over active mind, insomnia)
  • Skin conditions (eczema, congested skin, excessive perspiration, dry skin)
  • Circulation, muscle and joint problems (odema, muscular stiffness, sprains)
  • Immune System issues (colds, infections, influenza)
  • Genito-urinary and hormonal system imbalances (painful menstruation, cystitis, thrush, PMT) 

I tailor each Holistic Aromatherapy Massage to the clients needs. My prefered length of appointment for a new Aromatherapy client is one and a half hours. To book see the information below.

Holistic Aromatherapy could be defined as the use of aromatic plant essential oils to aid a person's natural ability to find physical, psychological and spiritual wellbeing. Essential oils are the highly concentrated essences produced by plants for (that we know of) their own wellbeing; protection from external attack (eg fungi) and attracting pollinators.

Aromatic plants have been used for their health promoting properties for thousands of years. Aromatherapy in its current form, using essential oils, took shape early last century initially through a perfumery accident, showing the amazing therapeutic qualities of Lavender. It's expanded to include hundreds of essential oils all with different personalities and properties. Used in combination or alone they work their magic on depression, anxiety, IBS, stress, aching muscles, sore backs, grief, loneliness,

I trained as a Holistic Aromatherapist at the Northern School of Aromatherapy in Mirfield, West Yorkshire in 1998. Since then I have been using essential oils, mostly in conjunction with massage, to help clients (and friends and family) with their problems. A drop of Lavender *on your pillow at night helps you with disturbed sleep. A Geranium* bath might be the solution to that PMT. Peppermint* inhalations are just the thing for stubborn sinus problems. Although there are contra-indications and rules to follow, it's a wonderful way to maintain health and there are some great books out there too.

(* Before you use any essential oils at home, please make the effort to check on each oils suitability, contra-indications (ie when that oil is NOT suitable), dosage and usage. Many thanks x)
