My approach as a therapist is entirely geared to your story, temperament, situation and past health issues, which paint a vivid picture of how you came to be seeking advice or help with health or well being issues. With massage, reflexology, ear candling, reiki and more to choose from,18 years holistic experience, and an extensive nursing background forming a sound foundation to my work, I communicate clearly, understand your health problems, and can set realistic goals. This year, I have returned to Nursing, updating, working within a new speciality and rediscovering my inner nurse!
FIRST CONSULTATION FREE, time given as needed, no 10 minute, one problem limitations. If you just want to be relaxed, reset and rejuvenated by Massage, Reflexology, Reiki or Ear Candling, just listen to your body, make that call. NHS STAFF 25% DISCOUNT Reflexology, Reiki and Massage are always popular, but it's Ear Candling season again. Winter colds and sinus infections can muffle your senses, and spoil your fun. You may have noticed that they seems to get worse each time?, that is because over the counter treatments may bring relief, but leave small residues within your sinuses, leading to blockages that you feel as congestion and pain the next time around. Candling, massage and reflexology all offer different ways to encourage the body to get through the infection with better outcomes.

Bespoke Vouchers. £40 for 60 minutes Give someone you care a time of nurture, pampering and health support. Just use within 3 months
Reflexology - Feet or hands. VRT trained too Put your feet in my hands..£40
Reflexology does not tickle, your feet are a key toward good health, they may not win a beauty competition, but, the irregularities that develop, like bunions, hammer toes, corns, are all fascinating and relative to me in recognising what ails you and how to help. Reflexology attends to the connections within our feet or hands that influence the whole body on a physical, energetic and emotional level
Massage Therapy £40
Holistic, also called therapeutic massage, which is based on classical Swedish techniques - effleurage, petrissage, kneading, cupping and chopping.The classic standard in relaxation therapies, massage can also help to ease pain, joint discomfort, muscular and emotional tension and recover energy and feeling good in yourself.
Reiki - Universal Healing Energy. £40
Reiki can be profound in it's effect where other therapy approaches have failed. Ideal when you feel that you have ‘lost the plot’ with stress, and can’t think your way around the situation, or are grieving, in shock, or overwhelmed. I rest my hands on your body working from head to toe, you feel warmth and relax deeply. Universal Energy is drawn upon by you, and helps you.
Ear Candling £40 used for problems of the ears, sinuses, nose and throat. Spring and Summer bring Hay Fever, Autumn heralds the SINUS and COLD season, candles help enormously. High smog levels causing irritation, wax related deafness, Tinnitus, Hay Fever, Sinus Congestion and catarrh being the top of the list. Pressure regulation for flyer's and diver's, perfect to prepare for or rectify holiday scenarios , Stress and headaches are relieved too. Acupressure points around the ears face and neck are massaged to complement the candling and extend the benefits. A whole and mesmerising treatment.
BLOOD PRESSURE AND PULSE ANALYSIS The Health Check
Bolster the value of your time with me by having these two readings taken. Heart disease can lie hidden until revealed by a reading of pulse, or blood pressure. Arrhythmia's- pulses of irregular pattern, potential thyroid disorder, excess caffeine, anxiety , stress, muscular tension, pain, infection, hormone imbalance and many other situations may bring about changes that are imperceptible to you, but can be identified by manual pulse readings.Home machines give you a number, but not the characteristics. Come for a 15 minute appointment to check BP and Pulse and receive advice £15. Waist measurement now included and is considered a true risk factor indicator for cardiovascular disease potential.
Do you know what the safe levels are for men and women in waist size, and that it directly affects the risk of Cardiovascular Disease, diabetes and cholesterol.... More favoured as a risk assessor then the BMI readings by some schools of thought.

From Eric. Global Business traveller
May 2015 from Ivy Aged 80
Dear Peta, you really are so very good at putting people at their ease, making them
relaxed to enjoy their treatment. I always feel uplifted as I walk away after my reflexology session!
From Leanne, aged 25
I have been seeing Peta for a year now. She has supported me through periods of stress, depression, bereavement and fertility problems. She has always been caring and understanding of my needs, and taken the time to identify the right treatment for me. I have had combination treatments of reiki and reflexology, and found them both deeply relaxing and effective ways to balance my energy and mood. Most recently I have also had pregnancy massage with Peta. She is extremely knowledgable about a wide range of women's health issue. I would recommend her highly as a safe and trustworthy pair of hands.

Managing Partner, Working Health
Peta has successfully treated me for a long standing back complaint stemming from a sports injury some years ago. I was sceptical at first that reflexology would be able to help but I have to say it really does work and I am virtually pain free even after playing sport.
Mr V from Sutton
We employ Peta Gilbert to provide massage treatments to some of our Council Office clients on their Well Being Days. If numbers dictate, she sometimes brings along a colleague, of equal skill and likeability to treat people during their working day, either at their desk, or in a pop-up clinic way, using a massage chair. Quiet, adaptable and effective in 15 minutes, the feedback is always positive, tension’s are eased, morale is raised, and employer’s find a practical way to demonstrate care for their staff.

Peta has been wonderfully supportive over the years. Her knowledge and skill has led to her successfully treating me for a long standing back complaint stemming from a sports injury some years ago. I was sceptical at first that reflexology would be able to help but I have to say it really does work and has restored my mobility and allows me to play sport to a competitive level.

Please see below my testimonial for you and your service to our council over the years. Feel free to use this and I have no problem with you using my name as you wish and hope all goes well. Mr A Viccari
For a number of years as part of an occupational health and wellbeing initiative, I worked with Peta on a program of taster sessions to introduce staff to the potential benefits of complimentary therapy as part of health, wellbeing and stress management. As part of this program Peta provided therapies for staff and those staff who took up the sessions found them incredibly beneficial and some took up follow-up appointments to treat ongoing conditions. Peta is able to tailor a range of treatments and therapies into corporate packages to suit including Reflexology, health awareness and stress management. Highly recommended.
A Local Authority corporate head of Health and Safety
I just wanted to send a quick email to thank you again for all your kind help on Friday. We raised £450 for CRASH, a large chunk of that was due to your help.
As well as the beautifully relaxing massages, I heard a lot of people commenting on how tasty your pies were!

Those staff who took up the sessions found them incredibly beneficial and some took up follow-up appointments to treat ongoing conditions. Peta provides a range of corporate packages to suit including awareness and stress management. Well worth considering.
