Carol Greenwood - Greenwood Therapies
4 Witton Hill
For those wishing to break free of pain, discomfort, stress and worry, Jikiden Reiki, Holistic Massage and/or Bodywork can be the key that also leads to all round improved health and well-being.
I am passionate about the human system and healing with a life long career in health, starting as a nurse before moving to massage therapies. I have a far-reaching understanding of health and well-being that I use to work with you to attain your expressed goals and health objectives.
My professional, open and friendly manner has enabled me to nurture relationships with like minded therapists in other disciplines, and we can discuss any that might benefit your health status.
I offer Jikiden Reiki, Deep Tissue, Hot Stone, Swedish (energising or relaxing), Manual Lymphatic Drainage, Myofascial Release Technique, Head, Hand and Foot massages, and often use a combination of therapies.
I love my work and the wonderful diverse range of people who benefit from my unique blend of massage therapies and health expertise.
Training, qualifications & experience
Having trained as a Nurse in 1997 and enjoyed working and studying in a variety of fields, I trained as a massage therapist and left nursing in 2008.

I offer appointments between 30 minutes for £25 to 3 hours at £45 an hour. This is irrespective of the type of massage or body work I carry out as I often use a combination to achieve your desired goal.
The first session is an hour and is charged at just £40 as the vitally important assessment reduces the amount of therapy time.
I offer home visits to those less mobile, but my therapy room is ground floor and has easy access, and although not specifically wheel chair friendly, I have wheel chairs in without problem.
Full details of services and prices are available on my website, including gift vouchers and bespoke raw organic body care products.
Hi, I am Carol, open, friendly and very human! I am a single mother, working full time and I also run the Federation of Holistic Therapists local support group offering advice and support to both therapists and public. I'm kind of busy, but I absolutely love my jobs, and offer massage 12 days a fortnight to prove it!
I find that my clients get the best results when they are able to see me regularly - be that weekly or 6 weekly, and that benefit becomes intrinsic to their well being, with knock on health and well being benefits showing after just a few visits. The ideal is to be able to visit once a week for the first 6 weeks, then move to maintenance spacing of once a month to 6 weekly. HOwever, it has to work for you in terms of time and finance - I know that work and child care can make weekly sessions tricky, and adding to your stress with financial burdens can outweigh the benefit of the sessions, we can work round your needs!
I work on releasing trauma, be that physical, emotional, spiritual, psychological, and freeing up the body's ability to heal itself. Trauma can be caused by repetitive actions, poor posture, injury or surgery, loss, sadness, grief, depression, stress, worry... the list of causes is as infinite at the unique nature of an individual.
Jikiden Reiki can also be used specifically to target phobias, fears, emotional and mental imbalances.
I use my massage and body work skills, but also employ quarter of a century of professional training and experience to support you as much as you need to aid recovery to a state of well being that you truly deserve as beautiful and treasured individual.
I look forward to working with you towards a happier easier you.
