    Angie is a great therapist, full of empathy. She is somebody you can completely trust to discover what you need from a session.

  • Hopi Ear Candles
     My son has had chronic excessive wax since he was tiny, he used to suffer repeated painful ear infections, as the middle ear's eustachian tube became congested. This resulted in antibiotics, followed by a period of debilitation and reduced immune response, often with further complications of being suseptible to any bug's/virus's circulating at the time.
    For the last 3 years he has had  preventitve treatments of ear candles at key times when I'm sure he's at risk ie; autumn, before all the cold bugs start going around, and if he's a bit run down. He's not had an ear infection since. What a relief all round!

  • Pregnancy massage
    I was very surprised to find myself at such a beautiful and relaxing location at the edge of Canterbury. I had decided that a pregnancy massage was the perfect thing to start my maternity leave.

    I was a bit wary at first as I usually don't really like people in my personal space but Angelas professionalism immediately put me at my ease. Angela took great care throughout the massage to make sure I was comfortable, whilst at the same time allowed me to relax and enjoy the experience, which was carried out with considerable expertise

  • Herbal Compress
    This hot oil herb compress massage treatment is a revelation to me. It seems to be reaching deep tissue without the need for high pressure, sometimes painful standard massage technique. Angela has an amazing skill and is a highly professional, intuitive therapist and I would highly recommend her and the Pinda Sweda treatment to anyone.
