Carrie has an innate ability and passion to give the best massages ever! I have been going for massages for many years now and am so delighted to have found Carrie. She really knows her stuff, always adapts her massage to your needs and you feel that she genuinely enjoys taking care of people through massage. I have already recommended her to all my friends and family and hope to benefit from her therapeutic hands for years to come!

"Carrie is an exceptional healer.
I first booked a treatment with Carrie about two years ago and quickly realised that she is so much more than a conventional massage therapist. She works in a deeply connected and intuitive way, listens closely to whatever I am saying about my body and then follows energetic pathways to find the issues which are ready to be resolved.


"Carrie was very highly recommended to me and more than lived up to my expectations. I came when I was experiencing recurrent problems with my neck, shoulder and hips. I particularly appreciate the way she both listens to both the symptoms I present but also the solutions that my body needs. Her treatment is at times strong and at others subtle but always effective. I always look forward to appointments with her because I know how good it will make me feel in both body and mind."

Having played hockey for over 25 years I’m prone to the odd ache and pain and occasional long term injury. Carrie has great skill and knowledge and was really committed to my goal of playing for England Masters in the over 40s world cup in Hong Kong.
I’m not sure I could have done it without her!
Carrie’s excellence and optimism kept me fit, able to train hard and be here now! Thank you.

"Time is elastic in Carrie's treatment room, it can fly past or expand depending on what is happening and I emerge from a treatment feeling renewed and refreshed at a cellular level. Working with Carrie, the fabric of my being has been deeply touched and released physically, emptionally and spiritually. I recommend her work wholeheartedly."
