Lomi Lomi Massage

Lomilomi is an ancient Hawaiian bodywork tradition that has been passed on from teacher to student for centuries. A relaxing, gentle forearm massage for the entire body, to bring relaxation, balance and calmness to mind, body and spirit. Studied under Kumu Karen, the teachings of a local Hawaiian on the Island of Oahu. At the Hawaiian Healing Arts College.

Lava Shell Massage

It's time to leave the Stone Age behind! Every Lava Shell is a real, hand-selected Tiger Clam shell from the South Pacific. A part of the local diet for hundreds of years, the shells were previously thrown away, as the villagers had no use for them. But now, by recycling these natural beauties and turning them into a powerful tool that allows me to perform an entire heated massage with only one or two shells. As the shells are calcium carbonate, they give off calcium ions naturally when heated, which are transferred directly to the skin during the massage process. The calcium helps to regulate the skin's natural renewal processes and can help to give a client firmer, healthier looking skin, while also reaping all the benefits of a heated massage treatment.


is a natural treatment practised since ancient times, involving the use of essential plant oils in conjunction with massage, inhalation, compresses and baths. An enjoyable experience in itself, Aromatherapy improves and maintains health, vitality and well-being. Essential oils work effectively on an emotional level, providing comfort and tranquillity on a deeper, subconscious level.

Swedish Massage

is the basic art form of massage using 4 different techniques to relax the client. It also stimulates blood flow, decreases stress levels, as well relieving muscle strain.

Deep Tissue massage

techniques have been recognised for their therapeutic properties since the times of Greek and Roman civilisations. Coaches, trainers and athletes maintain that sports performance will be greatly improved if the appropriate muscles are correctly massaged before physical activity. The preventative effects of pre-event and post-event massage techniques are often regarded as an athlete's secret weapon. I will assess which injuries are appropriate to treat with deep tissue massage, & when referral to a specialist is necessary. The emphasis is on the treatment and prevention of sporting injuries. The techniques are applicable to other injuries occurring in the workplace and elsewhere.

Strapping and taping

of the various joints of the body, aid to augment the role of the connective tissue structures and add stability to joints. This technique used with other preventative and rehabilitative techniques, assisting to prevent acute injuries, as well as the progression of chronic injuries.

Lymphatic drainage

Gentle strokes, using a systematic approach to stimulate the drainage of lymph fluid. Effective techniques to assist patients recovering from long standing illness, elimination of built up of toxins or oedema, or for a relaxing alternative to Swedish Massage. Depending on the situation and needs/wants of the client, dry brushing with a natural bristle brush may be utilised to stimulate the lymph flow before a Lymphatic drainage massage treatment.


The objective of the technique is to increase the range of movement at various joints by mobilising the soft tissue of the musculoskeletal system. This is an important part of a remedial therapist's strategy and often negates a manipulative approach.


Reflexology is an ancient science, which incorporates the use of a particular thumb and finger technique on the feet, hands and ears to improve health, vitality and well being.


Treats musculo-skeletal impairment commonly occurring in sporting situations. These techniques include myofascial release, trigger point therapy, muscle energy techniques, and others. Also specific treatment strategies are matched with particular disorders.
