Perhaps a combination of treatments may suit you. Unwind and release some stress and tension and leave feeling pampered, relaxed and revitalised. We all deserve it.

Holistic Massage Therapy

Holistic massage (also known as Swedish Massage) is a form of manipulation of the soft tissues of the body, which has been developed over thousands of years from ancient China to present-day Europe.  It has been used for the promotion and restoration of health.

Regular massage can have the following physiological and psychological effects and benefits:

  • Improve skin tone and colour and encourage better circulation 
  • Encourage better lymph drainage and reduce swelling
  • Relieve muscle fatigue, soreness and stiffness as well as tired stiff joints
  • Promote general relaxation
  • Encourage better sleep
  • Speed up digestion and waste removal
  • Helps to boost the immune system
  • Help to reduce the stress hormone, cortisol and in turn improve serotonin levels
  • Reduce the symptoms of anxiety and depression
  • Helps with pain relief.

Oncology Massage Therapy

An Oncology massage is an adapted and modified therapy for clients who have a cancer diagnosis and have commenced treatment, whether that be surgery, chemotherapy, radiotherapy or are post-treatment and in remission.  The aim of this therapy is to help improve your overall wellbeing.  Receiving a cancer diagnosis can be life changing, hearing this news can bring about feelings of anxiety and fear and the treatment for this disease can affect you physically and emotionally.  An oncology massage is gentle, nurturing and comforting and can help you throughout your cancer journey.  It is given with a mindful, intuitive touch that can feel the response of the tissue.

Previously, massage was a taboo for anyone going through their cancer journey.  However, research has shown that massage does not spread cancer and as long as the therapist is oncology trained, it is a safe therapy.

Some of the possible benefits for someone living with cancer includes (these have all been noted in research):

  • Surgery recovery – lessen the long-term effects of anaesthesia and promote wound healing.
  • Decrease the symptoms of chemotherapy and radiotherapy.
  • Improved perception of pain, decreased nausea and increased relaxation.
  • Improves the effectiveness of medication, physiotherapy and other medical procedures.
  • Improved sleep quality and recovery.
  • Reduced levels of anxiety, depression, general and emotional fatigue.
  • Reduce the length of hospital stays.
  • Relief from touch deprivation.
  • Helps to create a sense of control.


Prior to commencing treatment with you, as a new oncology client, I would have an in-depth consultation, which can take place via video call.  This would involve taking a history of your cancer journey so far, including your expectations from attending therapy sessions with me.  Following each session, after care advice will be provided, which can include suggestions to see other complementary practitioners, if deemed appropriate.

Each treatment is individual to you, taking into account your diagnosis, treatment, personal needs and long and short-term goals.  This is a 1-hour session, but not necessarily a full hour’s massage.  This will all depend on your stage of health that day.  Please contact me for a further discussion.

Indian Head Massage

Indian Head Massage is a relaxing, stress-busting massage of the scalp, face, neck, shoulders, upper back, arms, ears and hands.  Traditional Ayurvedic head massage was first referred to in ancient texts.

The treatment incorporates shiatsu and acupressure techniques, helping to rebalance the body’s energy by releasing any areas of negativity or stress.  The Indian Head Massage is one of the methods used for over 4,000 years to help towards overall good health.

Indian Head Massage can have the following physiological and psychological effects and benefits:

  • Relief from neck and shoulder pain/stiffness
  • Breakdown of muscle tension and increase oxygen intake by the tissues
  • Stimulation of the lymphatic system and dispersal of toxins/waste
  • Improved circulation of blood and oxygen to muscles and the brain
  • Improved joint mobility
  • Possible promotion of hair growth
  • Relaxation of the scalp tissue, leading to improved circulation
  • Reduction of anxiety
  • Promotion of a sense of peace, calmness and wellbeing
  • Re-energising the person as a whole

Reiki Healing Therapy

From my own experience, Reiki feels like a wonderful glowing radiance that glows through and around you. 

Reiki treats the whole person, including body, emotions, mind and spirit, creating many beneficial effects that include relaxation and feelings of peace, serenity and wellbeing.

The experience itself is often described as quite an emotional release.  The therapy encourages deep relaxation and to let go of negative emotions, such as fear and anxiety, which can often manifest themselves physically.  For anyone feeling emotionally overwhelmed or disconnected, it can bring a sense of inner calm, much like with meditation.  It can have an overall positive effect on the mind and body.  

The key difference with Reiki compared to other forms of therapy is its non-invasive element, which makes it perfect for those who are uncomfortable with removing clothing, contact with needles, or applied pressure.

Benefits reported include:

  • Deep relaxation, promoting a calm, peaceful sense of wellbeing on all levels.
  • Some people feel sensations of heat, tingling, or experience seeing colours, whilst others can have an emotional response, indicating that shifts are taking place, allowing harmony to be restored.


Reiki treatment is a process that anyone can enjoy in the normal course of their life.  Reiki can be used alongside other conventional or complementary treatments and often helps to provide emotional support during periods of recovery.  

Reiki can complement and enhance other forms of treatment.  Therefore, Reiki is great to add to other treatments I offer. You can add a Reiki session on to your Holistic Massage or Deep Tissue Massage treatments.

Auricular acupuncture

Auricular Acupuncture is a particular type of acupuncture using very small, fine needles (pins) inserted into acupuncture points on the surface of the outer ear.  I follow the NADA protocol, which is a 5-point treatment.  This therapy is used to treat stress-related symptoms, such as insomnia, fatigue, anxiety, digestive problems, muscular pains and tension.  It can also be beneficial in reducing menopause related symptoms.

From my own experience, during an acupuncture session, I have felt very relaxed, a release of tension was noticeable and an improvement in my sleep pattern.

In acupuncture, the ear is regarded as a mini map of the body.  Placing needles in these acupuncture points can help specific conditions directly corresponding to parts of the body.  The shape of the ear is seen to resemble a near-term foetus in the inverted position in the mother’s womb.  Therefore, the lobe corresponds with the head, face and eyes and the top of the ear with the ankles.

The pins are left in place for 45 minutes, whilst you relax listening to calming music.

Auricular acupuncture can have the following physiological and psychological effects and benefits:

  • Balance and calm the nervous system, encouraging a sense of physical and emotional wellbeing
  • Promote relaxation
  • Digestive system:  Helps with the release of spasms
  • Improve sleep patterns
  • Manage hot flushes and night sweats (reducing the frequency and severity)
