FHT registered - Massage, Reflexology and V Lift Facial

About me

Hi, I'm Amy and I have a wealth of experience in treating various injuries and long term chronic conditions such as frozen shoulder, sinus/congestion/ear conditions, repetitive strain, headaches and eye strain and mental health - all whilst promoting relaxation and pain reduction through massage, aromatherapy and reflexology. 

My company, Purple Turtle Therapy has been established in Brighton and Hove for over 20 years. I am a qualified, experienced and award winning therapist with a loyal regular client base. 

  • Deep Tissue Massage
  • Holistic Massage
  • Aromatherapy Massage
  • Indian Head Massage
  • Pregnancy Massage
  • Lymphatic Drainage Facial Massage Therapy
  • V Lift Facial
  • Reflexology
  • Thermal Auricular Therapy or Ear Candling
  • Corporate Wellbeing.

My massage is a fusion of remedial massage therapy and relaxation, focusing on deep tissue massage. I work with my clients on their long term health goals, focusing on improving their body mobility and reducing pain. This includes postural and stretching advice.

V Lift Facial is an age-defying natural facelift massage that promotes regeneration of cells, lifting and smoothing of the skin and plumping of collagen. Can reduce scarring and also helps with sinus/congestion/ear conditions and migraines/headaches. The facial is massaged focused with the use of ethical organic products. I have developed this original face lifting technique over the last 15 years and have trained the therapists in this technique in such prestigious establishments such as the famous Viva Mayr Clinic in Austria.

I use Aromatherapy essential oils for my massages and also provide Reflexology and Ear Candling in addition to my massage.

Please call me on 01273 457 723 or send an email to make an appointment.

Training, qualifications & experience

I have been a therapist for over 20 years and I have a wealth of experience in treating injuries and long term chronic conditions such as frozen shoulder. I set up my business Purple Turtle Therapy in 2004 and have had venues in London, Brighton and Hove. I’m now solely based in North Laine, Brighton and have a lovely therapy and wellbeing centre. I also provide personal couples workshops for clients wanting to learn massage techniques on each other.

I have my own accredited training academy. Purple Turtle Academy offers CPD courses for qualified therapists to advance their skills. I have taught hundreds of therapists and I am Co-founder of the Indian Head Massage Community. 

I am advanced qualified and fully insured with the Federation of Holistic Therapists. I’m passionate about my work, so much so that in 2015 I was awarded the City Achievers Golden Alumni award for Brighton and HOve.
