Lucy draws on techniques from many massage traditions as well as her yoga background to meet the needs of each individual as a whole. She did her basic training in 2004 and has since devoted her entire adult life to furthering her understanding of hands-on therapy through both an anatomical perspective and a more holistic approach. She has undertaken considerable training in Thailand which informs all of her massage treatments and also offers Thai-Style “Yoga Massage” without the use of oil and Abdominal Detox Massage (sometimes known as Chi-Nei-Tsang) which is also a treatment that has been developed in Thailand.
The basic treatment is a massage using oil which takes place on our extremely comfortable therapy couch which is suitable for clients of all sizes and shapes. Your treatment can include the whole body, or be focused on specific areas.
You will have the opportunity to give further information about your needs both when you book, and at the start of your appointment. All treatments begin with a foot bath and consultation.

A whole body treatment typically consists of long, sweeping stroking movements to promote circulation of blood and lymph and to create an overall feeling of deep relaxation. Unless you specify otherwise, a whole body massage will include, back and shoulders, legs, feet abdomen, arm and hands, head, neck and face massage. It is thorough, but light, and can be offered in a side-lying position for pregnancy or any other circumstance where that would be preferable.
You may prefer a more targeted approach which focuses on areas such as your back, neck and shoulders, an old sports injury, or a thorough foot massage. This type of treatment will include deeper massage strokes and more specific techniques to release muscular tension.
When you make your booking you will be able to indicate what sort of treatment you would like to have. You will also have a consultation at the start of your appointment to confirm which sort of treatment will be most suitable on the day.
