  • 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.

  • 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

  • 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!

    My treatments with Angela have been profound. They are always nurturing and healing on so many different levels. I leave feeling relaxed, with clearer insights and empowered. Thank you."

  • Pinda Sweda
    ~I find the Pinda sweda massages very therapeutic. The treatment is a warm oil treatment using a compress full of healing herbs. I can really feel the depth of the treatment and it really helps to relieve tension in my muscles. It is a wonderfully intense experience and I feel so relaxed by the end of it that it’s difficult to get off the bed.

  • 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.
