A complete care package tailored for you
Holistic treatments are about far more than just feeling good and relaxed - 1 hour of remedial massage is equivalent to 7-8 hours sleep! I really aim to help you in many other ways, such as targeting the correct areas of pain at their core and preventing further pain or damage by recommending lifestyle changes which can absolutely benefit you. I am also here as a listening ear for any and all problems that you might have; your treatment is completely confidential and free from any judgement. Massage therapy offers the benefits of both talking therapies (such as counselling) with proven, practical techniques to balance & realign the body and mind, prevent future or further health issues, as well as treat symptoms of musculoskeletal, lymphatic and digestive ailments. Beauty and Alternative therapies have their own places within the healthcare industry, too.
During your initial consultation you will be asked a series of questions about your health (physical, mental and emotional) in order to asses your needs. Make sure you are as honest as possible so that you get the best treatment provided. Your consultation should take no longer than 20 minutes and is carried out via Google Forms - you will receive a Google Invite upon booking with a link for this. Please contact me if you have any problems with the link.
For home visits, I will ask that you have a spare room with space for a massage table and myself to move around (or otherwise equipment needed depending on your choice of treatment). Upon arrival, I will set up whilst you relax in your home. We will then have a more in depth discussion about your needs so I can get to know you and your tastes better (i.e. music on/off, oils, talking etc.) and you can feel comfortable with me providing your treatment.
If you choose to come to my treatment room, you will be welcomed with a fresh herbal tea, a pair of cosy slippers and a vast array of books to enjoy. Please feel free to take your choice of book home to read at your own pace - you can either swap it, return it or donate as much as you can afford to keep it. Experience the aromas and sounds to provide you with a completely enchanting service. And what's more, all in-house treatments are discounted!
During your treatment I will make you aware of my movements and techniques so you can be assured you are being cared for properly. I totally understand that too much talking can lead to discomfort so I will not be offended if you wish to be left in silence instead. I will always communicate with you and stop at any point if you are uncomfortable. Please do not feel ashamed to express your emotions - some people can laugh, cry, fall asleep or simply feel an inner sensation which can only be described as "warm"!
After your massage you should hopefully feel light, wobbly, and soothed. I will explain any contra-actions (completely normal bodily reactions and self-healing processes as a result of massage) and let you sit back and enjoy the rest of your day in peace. You may choose to book with me again - it is excellent practice to have regular therapy!
If you have a friend, family member or group and would like to discuss bundle treatments please don't hesitate to contact me; you are welcomed to view my Bridal & Pamper Party Packages here.

Signature Magick Massage
After so much (literal) "hands-on" experience, I have come across many bodies which all have specific needs. I welcome you into my space for your fully tailored Holistic Massage Therapy. No routine is the same, as everyone experiences emotions and feelings differently, and not all techniques will work with the same body.
After your initial consultation by form, further questions will be asked in your treatment session so that the experience can be tailored and an in depth assessment can be made. A combination of Sports, Swedish, Lomilomi, Thai & Ayurvedic movements can be used with targeted areas of pain-relief.
If you choose the 3 hour option, you will also have time after your massage for meditation, stretching & self-care plan, and of course as many teas as you like!
Aromatherapy Relaxation Massage
For those with simple needs! An aromatherapy massage uses specific essential oils which target your specific needs, and the massage style is Swedish - gentle and relaxing, but still able to benefit your body with maintaining your health.
Essential oils come from plants, which have been used in medicine for thousands of years, and the extracted oils were first introduced in the 19th Century. Different plants have different properties, and the phytochemicals possess remarkable healing qualities. Aromatherapy channels the benefits of essential oils into your body via your skin layer. You do not ingest anything, just smell your favourite smells and lay back...
Add on hot stones to this treatment for only £5!
Ayurvedic Head Massage
Gently soothing and sleep-inducing, this head, neck and shoulder massage also cares for damaged hair using richly nourishing Jojoba & Argan oils. Ayurvedic massage uses stretching, smooth strokes and vibrational movements around the head which have been proven to improve sleep quality, help treat mental health disorders such as PTSD and insomnia, and improve overall mood for emotional distress.
This head massage can be up to an hour long; I like to spend more time with you so that you feel thoroughly relaxed, and give your hair a truly restorative do-over. Even the most matted tresses will feel the difference with my hot towel head wrap and stimulating scalp rejuvenation.
NEW! Ayurvedic Yoga Massage
My brand new treatment! Very similar to Thai Massage, but powerful in its own sense, the beautiful modality of AYM uses yogic stretches, deep tissue relief and specially sourced calamus powder for a full body alignment that is bespoke to your needs. You are draped with "lungis" (comfortable cotton sheets which are typically worn as clothing in India) and enjoy a wonderful large and comfy floor mat to lie on. Choose to rest your head sideways or sink your face into my padded neck pillow. You can also opt for the pregnancy pillow or extra cushions for added comfort.
This treatment is fully bespoke; there is no set routine and all movements are tailored to your specific health needs. Please be honest with your consultation and take as long as you need - you can choose up to 3 hours with Ayurvedic Yoga Massage.
Deep Tissue Lomilomi Hawaiian Massage
My signature massage - this deep tissue treatment will take you away to the breezy tropical beaches of this amazing Island. Lomilomi is a dance of the hands; the therapist moves in tune with you to make your knots roll away with the waves...
Starting with a smudging of sage directly from my garden, your whole body is relaxed and restored in nourishing coconut oil. Please inform me if you would like any additional scents as this massage is traditionally performed with just the base oil.
Mama Bee Pregnancy Massage
Pregnancy massage is highly recommended for expectant mothers suffering from back pain, general fatigue and lots of emotional distress. Using no scents or fancy oils, this massage is peacefully relaxing and gentle to help ease your tensions and improve your bond with your growing baby.
You can choose a full body or just the back and shoulders - you will be lying down on your side with a comfortable support pillow which feels like a giant pair of arms hugging you tight. You can also choose the head and feet for a thoroughly relaxing treatment where you won't have to turn over!
Thai Foot Massage
I use this massage style as part of my Grounding Stones Pedicure.
You can also purchase this service alone to include legs, arms & hands.
Thai foot massage uses acupressure techniques and stretching of joints to relax the legs and feet, and tap into Sen lines; it is quite similar to Reflexology. I use my own handmade wooden sticks to press into the acupoints and you may keep yours after your treatment to use when you like. You can also choose hot stones instead!
