My aim is to help you to broaden your knowledge and understanding of your body, allowing you to connect with yourself again, giving way to optimum health and wellbeing.
Health and Wellbeing is important ~ you have been given One Body and we should try to honour it with One Love. I know, it sounds like a rebellious act ~ to love oneself completely. The first thing, is to try and keep it at optimum functioning level. This can sometimes be challenging as day to day life pulls you from one situation and pushes you to the next, before you know it, you’re at the end of another long tiring day and you finally have the time to do stretches, exercise and cook a healthy, delicious meal. Sometimes you will get to this point and find you don’t have the energy to do what your body needs the most. Sometimes you find it difficult to stop and take a breath.
I get it.
It doesn’t have to be like this, let me just say two things:
One: If you’re interested in working with me but are struggling to find space for anything more in your life, then please, take a moment and just breathe.
“You had purpose before anyone had an opinion” ~ plus the Universe has everything else covered.
Two: If you’re interested in working with me and have found the time and space to take a step forwards ~ here is a bit about me, my work and how I bring my vision forwards to you…..
I am a Medical Herbalist and Holistic Massage Therapist and I strive to understand you as a unique person. I tailor the massages and herbal medicines so that they are bespoke to you. To you and your Beautiful Soul. Ensuring you find emotional and physical ease. I infuse all of this with diet, exercise and lifestyle suggestions, interlaced with affirmation and meditations. With a final sprinkling of ideas to incorporate into everyday life. I aim to empower and encourage you to take back ownership of your mind and body and learn about its rhythms, patterns and cycles.
This is me
I am originally from West Yorkshire and I am now based in Henley-on-Thames, Oxfordshire. As a Medical Herbalist and Holistic Massage Therapist I offer herbal medicine consultations, bespoke whole plant remedies, holistic massage treatments, herb walks, talks and educational events. I see people for a wide range of health and wellbeing complaints. I am however, especially interested in Women’s Health, Fertility, Pregnancy and Post-natal Care. I am currently training to be a Doula with Doula UK.
I have always loved helping people and helping them to help themselves. I have also always had a keen interest in the ways we become ill and the ways we heal. I spent 3 years studying at the University of Lincoln and emerged with a BSc Hons in Herbal Medicine, graduating in 2012. I am a practising member of NIMH (The National Institute of Medical Herbalists). In 2013 I qualified with a diploma in Holistic Massage with MTI (Massage Training Institute) at SCMT (Sheffield Centre for Massage Training). I am also trained in Hot Stones Massage and Deep Tissue techniques. In 2016 I completed my Fertility Massage Practitioner Training course with Clare Blake. Here I met Charlotte Evans and joined her and her partner Kate McDougall at NNFP (Norwich Natural Fertility Partnership). I therefore, travel to Norwich to see patients once a month.
As you can see, I keep myself busy! I recognise that I have a lifetime of study and development ahead of me in order to broaden and deepen my knowledge and my craft. I will of course, continue to see all my current and future patients and clients for a wide range of health complaints in Henley, Norwich and wherever is next….. I’m open to suggestions!
