  • Abhyanga
    Angela took great care from the outset. Not only was the environment welcoming and warm but also Angelas warmth put me at ease immediately.
    I hadn't long had my 2nd baby and was in need of a massage, as I had not slept well and was feeling tense all over. After the consultation, Angela talked me through the type of massage she thought would suit me and I agreed.
    The massage was heavenly, such care was taken that I felt totally at ease and completely relaxed and possible slept, I only hope I didnt dribble!!!
    The music was soothing and I can honestly say I didnt want to move off the couch and the hour massage just wasnt long enough, next time I will book as long a massage as I can!!       Thank you Angela.

  • Ayurvedic Consultation
    "I was introduced to Angela on a retreat day. I made an appointment initially for an ayurvedic consultation, it was amazing. I was blown away by her knowledge and sensitivity.

    Not only are the treatments she offers very therapeutic for the literal body, but there is something about what she does that works on a deeply emotional level.

    OK, I'm a closet hippie but I'm also a cynic which means its pretty difficult to accept some of the more untangible aspects of holistic treatments, with Angela I believe and trust."

    Angie is a great therapist, full of empathy. She is somebody you can completely trust to discover what you need from a session.
    I have experienced a lot of therapist & I regard Angie to be one of the best.

  • Reiki
    “I contacted Angela, after seeking reiki for a recurring tumour, I came along with an open mind having tried conventional Western Treatments without favourable outcomes.
     
    Angela works in an intuitive, holistic way, treating you with unconditional love and respect.
     
    From the first Session I truly experienced a profound impact upon me, the healing I have felt manifest within me has empowered myself to make considerable spiritual movements in my life.
     
    An awakening … . Blessings Angela

  • Yoga 1-1 / Private
    "...They (yoga lessons) proved a true tonic & played an integral part in helping me let go of much stress. Her gentle, encouraging manner soothed me into a world of releasing tension & building physical strength and flexibility.
    This she compliments with many 'words of wisdom' on how to cope with the challenges on modern life... & useful pointers to take away with you.
    I have no hesitation in recommending them to those taking their first steps into yoga and those with a little experience under their belt alike.
    They are at the same time wonderfully relaxing and invigorating..the perfect balance of mind and body and all from an excellent teacher and communicator!
