Massage and Reiki Therapy

 

Intensely relaxing non-invasive healing system works on the entire physical, mental and emotional body, promoting wholeness of mind, body and spirit. Every treatment is tailored to the individuals needs whether it be massage, reiki or a combination of the two. 

Reiki means "universal life energy".  Eastern medicine has always recognised and worked with this energy that flows through all living things and is vital to well being.  One of the greatest reiki healing health benefits is stress reduction and relaxation which triggers the body's natural healing abilities.  It can be used to help with the recovery of physical or pathological issues, as well as to calm and slow the mind, allowing for more rational, controlled thought processes.  This can be hugely beneficial for those experiencing difficulties with stress, depression or anxiety.  Reiki therapy works beautifully with massage therapy as they compliment one another both in application and in the resulting deep relaxation following treatments.

My Story

The therapist, the wife, the mother, the individual.  I haven't always been a therapist, I spent many years working in a very different industry altogether and was only introduced to reiki therapy when my GP felt it might help me through a period of grief.  Having never experienced any kind of alternative or complementary therapy before, I had no idea what to expect.  I felt so completely uplifted and enriched by the reiki treatments, they not only helped me with the pain I was going through at that time, but I felt drawn to this incredible healing system and I needed to learn more about healing and the human body.  I left my job, and retrained for a number of years to become a reiki master therapist with the UK Reiki Federation,  and went on to complete qualifications in holistic massage with anatomy, physiology and pathology with an Itec Diploma at Hammersmith Hospital in London. 

Although I have always privately practiced reiki and massage therapy since starting my training in 2006, I feel utterly confident that now is the most important time to be striding out on my own and sharing what I learned.  Having a base for Woodstock Holistics has enabled me to spend more time nurturing my own family as well as provide a perfect setting to help, heal and revitalise others.  I am thrilled that there is now a place where people can contact me to learn about effectively caring for themselves and their families, as well as regaining control over their increasingly frantic lives.  I am overwhelmed by the reaction I have received from people who’s lives are happier because of it.  I love what I do and I love being able to share it with you and my family.
