"Nourishing yourself in a way that helps you blossom in the direction you want to go is attainable, and you are worth the effort. "
The treatments I offer are:
Each of the modalities can be a treatment session but I often combine different techniques to suit your needs for that session.
During these sessions, you may also like to explore any personal challenges or changes you want to make in your life.
Alongside these treatments, we can use practical personal enquiry methods to explore the best ways to make change.
This method will support you to successful navigate challenging lifestyle changes – all in a safe, nurturing space.
Lomi Lomi Massage
This is my signature treatment. Continuous, flowing strokes work both gently and deeply to alleviate pain, release tension and leave you calm and relaxed.
It can also support you in making the things you long for to happen. It’s a 5,000-year-old practice designed to get things moving.
After their first session, many clients comment on how distinctive it is from other forms of massage (and then book their next session!).
Indian Head Massage
An Indian Head Massage will clear your mind and lull you into deep relaxation.
It’s a powerful method to reduce tension in the neck, shoulders and head, often caused by overwork at computers, too much driving or simply thinking too much.
Blended oils warm and soften the muscles of your back, shoulders, neck and scalp and the treatment is completed with a gentle face massage with vanilla scented Argon oil.
Hot Stone Massage
A Hot Stone Massage soothes and relaxes.
This ancient method of massage uses warm stones to relax tight muscles. The heat penetrates 7-8cm into your muscles, giving a deeper treatment and releasing areas of tension.
It’s a beautiful treatment that will activate your parasympathetic system, leaving you calm and relaxed.
Remedial Massage is deep tissue massage that may efficiently treat injuries. It is used to remove blockages and damaged cells, speed up recovery and encourage healing.
It does not set out to relax, the intention is more to address physical pain and injury.
During treatment there may be tenderness in areas indicating where muscles and tendons are injured. The therapist uses the patient’s feedback to pinpoint the damaged tissue and to regulate pressure.
When I learnt that reflexology was a compulsory modality for my first year Complementary Therapy Diploma, I was skeptical: how can you access and treat the whole of the body through the feet?
However, after only a few sessions with practice clients, I was blown away by its effectiveness and even elected to specialize in it in my second year and continue to deepen my knowledge of this impressive modality.
There are hieroglyphics showing people giving and receiving Reflexology.
Reflexology is a method of activating the body’s healing powers by working on pressure points, meridians and energy zones by stimulating reflexes of the foot that correspond to each gland, organ and system of the body.
Stimulation of these reflexes serves to relax and harmonise all functions of the body in order to promote the body’s equilibrium and revitalisation.
Reflexology for Hormonal Balancing
Hormones! We all have them.
They regulate how we feel.
They determine our growth, our sleep patterns, our energy levels and our ability to combat infection.
They ignite when we need to survive a crisis.
Sometimes they can drive us crazy!
Mood swings, insomnia, acne, allergy, fatigue, conception, stress as well as the inevitable hormonal changes of life have a profound effect on us.
Reflexologists have developed a Hormonal Balancing Protocol that can help bring alarming and often severe symptoms into a state of harmony.
I have used this protocol on both women and men, from adolescence to menopause, from stress to lethargy and have been met with some profound results.
Because most hormones work in cycles, it is necessary to see you for several sessions. I have created a special package called Revitalise, Refresh and Renew to enable you to find the harmony you need.
Reflexology for Conception and Pregnancy
Let’s face it the journey of conception and pregnancy comes with it’s own sets of challenges.
It is a time of mixed emotions as the body adjusts and prepares itself for the marathon of promise, gestation, birth and parenthood.
In all aspects of this great adventure, Reflexology can aid relaxation, soothe symptoms, offer support and promote a greater sense of wellbeing.
I have treated several mothers-to-be throughout their pregnancies and continue to see them after their births as they navigate parenthood. They often walk away wanting more.
Trying to conceive?
Reflexology can support you and your partner physically and emotionally.
Reflexology helps to optimise the physical and emotional health of pregnant women.
Preparing for labour?
Reflexology can promote relaxation and reduce tension when stress levels are high that helps invite labour and assists during labour.
I aim to create, with you, the best possible conditions for you and your babies to thrive before, during and after your birthing experience.
Book a reflexology treatment to connect with you, your baby and give yourself the support you need.
I also have a Mother-to-be Care Package.
All my life I have loved plants, and in some form or another, have grown gardens wherever I have settled.
During my Clinical Aromatherapy studies, it was no surprise to me to discover that plants have potent remedial and harmonising properties.
Yes, the scents of essential oils have the power to transform our emotions and support the natural healing processes in our amazing bodies! Isn’t that just lovely?
Essential plant oils can be used to relieve many stresses and ailments in various ways: massage, diffusers/burners, atomisers/sprays, compresses and also in your bath.
As a Clinical Aromatherapist, I can advise you on the best oils and methods to use to enhance your process, I can blend oils and make sprays specially designed to suit your needs. I can also use the oil blend during massage.
The practice of Reiki has become integrated into my daily life. It is the first thing I give myself on waking and it is what I use to appreciate my food as well as tending my home and my plants.
Reiki is my essential ingredient when giving therapeutic touch.
Reiki is a simple, natural and safe method of energetic healing.
It treats the whole person including body, emotions, mind and spirit and may create many beneficial effects that include relaxation and feelings of peace, security and wellbeing to improve one’s health and enhance the quality of life.
Administered by laying on hands it is based on the idea that life force energy flows through us and is what causes us to be alive.
Reiki treatments encourage and guide this life force energy to support whatever healing, balancing and harmonizing is needed for each person.
I can offer you a Reiki session, either on its own, or integrated into other forms of massage, creating a holistic healing session.
As we navigate the challenges of lifestyle changes it is helpful, I would say necessary, to surrender (from time to time) to the support and encouragement of others.
Isn't it a relief to know that you don't have to do it alone, that someone else has your best interests at heart?
As your coach and mentor it is vital that we work together to make the small, yet significant changes you need to enhance your life.
This can be an exciting and daunting journey and it is often necessary to take the time to pause, consider, evaluate, and integrate the many options open to you before you begin to act.
It is important to me that your journey is loving and kind, not only to yourself, but to those around you.
Sometimes that does mean making some painful, difficult choices and there are ways to pave a way that is not littered with bitterness and regret.
As your coach and mentor, I cannot make choices for you yet, I can guide you towards creating a life that is fulfilling, nurturing and uplifting.
I can offer sessions in person, or online using Skype; What's App or Facetime .
In person sessions may also include, with your permission of course, some of the hands on therapies I practice as a way of integrating your intentions.

I had a series of reflexology treatments from Lisa which I found helpful for my general wellbeing as well as treating some specific issues. She has a caring approach and is attentive and supportive in her sessions. She has found a home in the healing arts.
