Sophie has been a practising massage therapist since 2000. Since then she has continually updated her skills and is now qualified in Reflexology, Indian Head Massage, ‘advanced’ or deep tissue massage and Aromatherapy Massage.
Thanks to the breadth and depth of training and experience gained over the last 10 years, Sophie is able to tailor the treatment and massage style to your needs. Some prefer a deep treatment aimed at relieving muscular pain and tension. For these clients the muscles are stretched and kneaded with appropriate pressure and trigger or pressure points are utilised to encourage tight muscles to relax. Aromatherapy massage is more suitable for those that prefer a lighter touch.
Sophie is a qualified Medical Herbalist, and can help with the management of a wide variety of complaints including skin conditions, digestive problems, hormonal imbalances, infections and headaches and many other conditions. Herbal treatment can also speed the recovery from illness or injury. An individual herbal medicine is prescribed after a consultation, one hour in duration. The medicine is taken for a period of time dependent on the patient’s needs. Follow up consultations last half an hour, they are used to record progress and make any necessary changes to the prescription.
Herbal medicines are charged separately from the consultation but typically amount to £5 per week.
Sophie always uses organic herbs when available.
