Hands and Feet
Your hands and feet are some of the hardest working parts of your body and really deserve a little care and attention. They can also be a way of treating other areas of the body in a non-intrusive way and for many are so relaxing that they find themselves in a meditive state or maybe even drifting off for a while.
A non-intrusive way to treat pains and improve wellbeing
Reflexology allows the whole body to be treated in a non-intrusive way. The feet and hands can be seen as a map of the body and by working over the reflex points found here many conditions may be helped. Deeply relaxing this is an excellent way to improve your general well-being.
Thai Hand Massage
Relaxing and beneficial for many common hand pains.
A Thai Hand Massage works on the hands and forearms and is deeply relaxing. It may help with conditions such as RSI, carpal tunnel syndrome, poor circulation and arthritis.
Thai Foot Massage
Stimulates yet relaxes.
Thai Foot Massage works on the feet and lower legs and is a wonderful way to relax. It is believed that by working on the feet you stimulate the energy flow and then move this up towards the body by massaging the lower legs.

Will I have to get undressed?
This will depend on what therapy you have chosen. For example with reflexology you will need to remove your shoes and socks. For Thai Foot massage I will need to be able to work on your lower legs so tight trousers may also need to be removed - you will have a blanket covering the upper part of your legs. With a full body massage you will need to undress down to your underwear although you will be covered by towels with only the area being work on uncovered at any given time. If you have any concerns then please be sure to mention this before the session starts so we can find the most acceptable way forward for you.
How much does it cost?
Prices vary depending on the treatments, but I have listed prices on the treatment pages. If in doubt please ask.
Do I need a consultation?
When visiting for the first time a full consultation will be carried out, looking at medical history, lifestyle and what you want to achieve from your treatment.
This is a vital and totally confidential process to ensure that you receive the most from your visit and that there are no medical reasons to prevent the session from going ahead.
For most people, a 10-15 minute period at the beginning of their first session is long enough for this process to happen. However for a significant few more time is needed to discuss more complex medical/mental health issues, or to simply spend more time finding out about the different therapies on offer. There is an option to book a 30-minute consultation should you feel this is required. If in any doubt then please do not hesitate to contact me to discuss your requirements.
What is the best therapy for …………..?
All holistic therapies are about the right approach for each individual so it is not so much what is best for a particular condition, rather what is best for you. This will vary from individual to individual and often a good starting point is what do YOU feel drawn to most. It is also very important that you feel comfortable with your therapist and again this can vary, just as we find it easy to work or be with some people and not others. I am always happy to discuss this with anyone considering coming to see me and I also offer the opportunity to book a 30 minute consultation session so that we can explore the various options and put together an appropriate plan that is specific to you. It also gives you a chance to see how you feel about me as your therapist.
How many sessions will I need and how often should I attend?
This will depend on the reason for your visit and how much work is needed to be done. For example if you have back issues due to pour posture which has developed over many years then several sessions may be needed. In such cases a weekly attendance at first is advisable dropping to every other week after the first month and then monthly for maintenance thereafter. Needless to say that if you continue with the bad posture habits then more frequent visits may be needed over a longer period of time.
How long does a session take?
This varies from therapy and can also involve personal choice, for
